Shaker card and winter wryn

It’s Friday and it’s fab! It’s Tiddly Inks time! Winter Wryn is in my spotlight today.

I’ve done it. I’ve started making Christmas cards. But instead of doing the ‘same old’, I decided to have a go at a shaker card for the first time. As usual I didn’t follow a tutorial, as I think it’s more fun to try stuff on my own. I do like to make things awkward for myself, right?

It is not perfect. I decided to double layer the foam tape and had to cut it by hand so the thickness isn’t the same on both layers. This means that the little stars I used got stuck around the side and it looks like I’d made a frame with them as well. It works. It looks great. But it wasn’t intentional, haha!

The ‘god jul’ die is from Kaboks, the flowers from The Hobby House and Wild Orchid Cards, Martha Stewart made the puncher, the white candy is from Craftwork Card (I coloured two of them with YG67), and the paper is by Maja Design. Oh and the stars in the shaker card? That is just some confetti I had laying about. In a bag that is, not all over! I will have to get something that looks like snow for the next one.

Here you can see the stars being all over:

Copics used: (red) R24, R27, R29, R89, (snowman) C1, C3, C5, (hat) C5, C7, C9, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (hair) E41, E42, E43, E44, E47

Monochromatic

It is right in the middle of Easter and it is time for a new challenge over at Copic Marker Norge. This time around the theme may be a bit more challenging, it is monochromatic. I think it was fun, though, although I cannot recall if I have ever tried to colour in black and white before.. maybe once? hmm. The only problem I’ve had is when I’ve coloured it in, it’s hard to take a photo that will show all the nuances in the colouring, but hey can’t win them all..

The image I’ve used for this is by Make It Crafty. I’ve cropped the girl so it’s possible to see the details when coloured with only a few markers. I’ve used Copics, as always. The paper is from Papermania, sentiment from Lili of the Valley, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and the punchers are Martha Stewart ones.

And a side on view.

Copics used: W0, W1, W2, W3, W5, W7, 100

Sweet Sally

It is time for another of the popular Art by Mi Ran progressive challenges! To find out what these are, and to take part, please visit the ABM Facebook Group. If you’d rather purchase the image without taking part, then you’ll have to wait until next month and you’ll find her in the shop.

As always I coloured her up with copics. This time I added some bricks and a back to stop her from floating mid air surrounded by white.

The sentiment stamp is by Lili of the Valley and the flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts.

Talkative Tracy

Yesterday was Friday, the first this month. That means Art by Mi Ran’s facebook group has started its new progressive challenge! This month we are playing with Talkative Tracy. As usual the progressive challenge works as follows: You purchase the image for this month’s challenge (unless you participated in October) and make a project with it which you enter into the challenge album. Once you have participated you will recieve next month’s image for free upon request and this carries on until you choose to not enter one month, at which point you have to purchase the next image to join in again. Anybody can join in at any time. It is great to see the variety of projects created using the same image! If you’d rather not participate then you can simply wait a month and purchase the image in Mi Ran’s shop.

I actually used various scrap paper I had laying around for this card and painted the edges with acrylic paint. I used Martha Stewart punches and Wild Orchid Crafts flowers along with Mi Ran‘s gorgeous image which I coloured in with copics.
