Enjoy the summer

If you have noticed that I am late with this month’s card for the Copic Marker Norge challenge then you’re absolutely right! One of the super ladies on the team offered to swap teams with me this month when I was running short on time in the middle of June. Thanks!

I’ve used a Make it Crafty image for this enjoy the summer challenge theme we’re running. For a change I’ve not used the full image, but cropped it closer. Isn’t she adorable? It’s been coloured in with copics, of course, and you can see the list of colours below.

Other supplies used here are from Live and Love Crafts (now closed down), Wild Orchid Crafts, Martha Stewart punchers, some cheese cloth and pearls. The paper, if I remember correctly, is by First Edition Paper.

Copics used: (hair) E08, E18, E19, E49, E97, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (dress) YG03, G82, G94, G99, W1, W3, W5, (flowers) Y04, Y08, YR04, and a white gel pen

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

Heart-strings

As the year is a bit awkward for doing challenges every 4 weeks and still only 12 a year, the July challenges at Mi Ran’s facebook group lasted two weeks longer than normal, so for 6 whole weeks. It gave us all a bit of a summer holiday and everyone on their holidays had more time to enter. Win/Win if you ask me! As it is time for the first August Challenge, it means it’s time for the progressive challenge! It’s fun too as we get more entries each month! The thing about the progressive challenge is that you join the facebook group and sign up for the progressive challenges, once you enter the challenge you will automatically recieve the image for the next challenge! How neat is that?! So come join up and join in! If you’d rather just purchase the image in Mi Ran’s shop, you can do so next month once the challenge is over. This is what I made for this month’s challenge.

I struggled a bit with the image, so instead of making it easy for myself.. I waited until the last minute, decided to try dip dyed hair for the first time and do something I hardly ever do: make a very simple CAS card using my own colouring. As I have a terrible habit of doing things backwards, I’ll try Kit and Clowder’s dip dye tutorial in their skin and hair class tomorrow.

The sentiment is by Pink Pettycoat. I added some rhinestones to jazz it up.

Lilla konfirmant

Another non-Christmassy card today. I have lots more Christmas cards to show, but it’s good to break it up a little bit and add something else. Today I am showin a card made with one of my favourite Saturated Canary images. I have coloured it in with Copics. The patterned background paper is from a Papermania pad, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts as is the darker purple ribbon and bow. Unfortunately I cannot remember what the two emboss folders I used are called. The leaves are, as always, made with a Martha Stewart puncher.

First snowfall

While I was on holiday, I got through the second round of the summer contest at Copic Marker Norge. Quite a pleasant surprise that was, as I didn’t think I stood a chance! Now that I am home again I only have until Friday to get my next project completed. Between starting on my Master’s Degree at Uni and working, I only had Wednesday to make an attempt for an entry. It did not at all go to plan!
