Paper Nest chickens

About a month ago Christine of Paper Nest Dolls asked if I’d like to make a card for her. Of course! I’ve seen her cute images around for a while, just never gotten around to colouring any of them. This was the perfect excuse! I picked this adorable image with three little chickens. They’re great, aren’t they! It is called Little Chicks Emma.

The papers and sentiment are by Lili of the Valley, flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts which is also where I purchased the lace. The image has, as usual, been coloured up with my Copics.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, R20, (hair) E41, E43, E44, E47, E49, (chikens) Y000, Y04, Y08, (dress) Rv00, R22, R27, R81, R83, R89, Y000, Y04, Y08, C1, C3, G40, G82, YG03, (grass) YG03, G82, G94, G99, (sky) B0000, B000, B91. And a white gel pen.

Owl you

Guess what I did at the weekend! I finally took the first two out of the series to become a copic colouring master. The course was held at Bikuben with Elizabeth as our fantastic instructor. It was fun to get some new tips and see some of her colouring in person. She’s great, really! Cannot wait for the next two courses in May where there more advanced techniques that I know little to nothing about.

Today we have a new challenge over at the Copic Marker Norge blog. This time we’re playing bingo! If you count the flowers and feathers on the image itself then I’ve covered all the squares of the bingo card giving me a full house. Yey!

The papers I’ve used are Pion, the sentiment Lili of the Valley, the image (which is obviously coloured with copics) is by Ching-Chou Kuik. I am so happy with how that turned out. One of my favourites, actually, I think. Not often I am this happy with an image the first time I colour it! Oh, the cute little butterflies are from Noor Design.

Copics used are: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, R20, R22, (hair) E53, E555, E57, (flowers) R81, R85, RV17, R89, G82, G99, YG03, (owl) W2, W3, W5, E55, E57, (background) B0000, B000, B00, B02

Winter reindeer

It has now been a full year since I got the honour of joining the Copic Marker Norge design team. Time does fly when you’re having fun and I feel it’s a great experience being on this team with such great talent! It’s always inspiring to see what these wonderful ladies come up with!

The card I’m showing today is using an image from Tiddly Inks, which I have coloured in with copics. The snowflakes are by Panduaro and the lace is from Live and Love Crafts. Lastly I’ve added a dash of frantage over the distressed edges to give a bit more of a winter feel.

Here is another photo of the card:

A wee frosty snowman

It’s snowing today. That’s a pretty perfect backdrop for the current theme at Copic Marker Norge: Winter.

A couple of months ago I got a semi-challenge to colour up a Wee Stamps image. As it’s been a while since I’ve coloured one of hers, at least that have ended up here on the blog, I decided it was time. I chose this adorable snowman. I’ve used some Martha Stewart punchers, Noor Design and Maja Design papers, distress ink and Live and Love Crafts lace.

Here is another photo.

Taste of winter

Happy New Year!

New year means new colouring opportunities, even more so this year as I was very lucky and received a full Prismacolor pencils set for Christmas from my boyfriend! I still haven’t dared to touch them, though, and the copics will probably continue to be my favourites.

A new years also means new challenges and fun at Copic Marker Norge. To kick off the year we have a Winter themed challenge starting today and this is my inspirational card using a Mo Manning image from Mo’s Digital Pencil called Taste of Winter.

I used various embellishments from Wild Orchid Crafts, Live and Love Crafts, Noor Design, Panduro and Dovecraft.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (hair, sledge and trousers) E42, E43, E44, E47, (jacket and hat) W1, W3, W5, W7, G40, G82, G94, G99, (scarf and mittens) G40, G82, (shoes) 100, W3, W5, W7 , (sky) B000, B91, B93, (star) Y04, Y17, YR04
