CMN blog hop

It’s blog hop time! Copic Marker Norge is celebrating its sixth birthday this month and we’re having a blog hop to celebrate. Each DT blog will have a small prize that can be shipped world-wide, but the main prize on the CMN will only be shipped domestically. Still very much worth while for everybody to comment on the DT blogs! The prize on my blog will be a small goodie-bag of my favourite “stash” that I have yet to put together, hence no photo of it! For information on how to win the main prize, please see the CMN blog.

I went with a Tiddly Inks image for my card. This time I actually made the background first, with two different copic refills, and then coloured the image to match. It wasn’t easy getting the right shade of red for it though, but I got there in the end with many layers of colour. I decided to go with a dark hair colour to really set the contrast with the background. The image is cut out by hand and layered over a white strip with the sentiment I made to match.

Siv is the next in line! Be sure to pop by her and leave her a comment.

Shy violet and frustration-inked background

Have you ever been so stuck on a card that you have fuzzy cut it twice? Once with a border and once without? And then been so frustrated on what to do with the actual that you’re almost just throwing away the image? Well this happened to me, on this card. It’s possible because it is yellow. I am not very good with yellow. So how did it end up as a card?

Well… I got out one of my copic refill ink bottles and just tossed some ink down on the blank card, then I got a cotton pad which I poured more ink on and just rubbed it on the white background. And there we go. It wasn’t supposed to be pretty, or planned, or anything. In fact I liked how it just showed my frustration somewhat, hahaha. I made a sentiment text and printed it out and layered it between the inked background and the coloured image.

A perfectly reasonable way to react when you cannot think of what to do, right? haha. I really quite like it, though, and I will definitely do more cards like it. Although… it will be more intentional next time! Maybe I should do a tutorial on it then…

And the image? That is Shy Violet by Tiddly Inks. The card is for the new Tiddly Inks anything goes challenge. Come join in, will you?

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.

Grow a little love

Right, so there is no secret I love Tiddly Inks images, especially all things Wryn! I was on their design team a while back and as they’re having another DT now that I have more time to make cards again I thought I would submit an application. It is a great team to be on, so perhaps you should try your luck also? You can find the DT call here. This is my card for said application. It’s a Wryn, of course! And coloured with Copic makers!

Actually, this is not my favourite. My favourite is the one with the cupcake, eat more cake, but as I used that one for the previous time I applied for a DT, I thought I should pick another one this time. Although I adore all of the winter ones, I decided to go with grow a little love, which I have also coloured up loads of times. I honestly have way too many favourites, I admit it.

I’ve used various stash from Wild Orchid Crafts, Live and Love Crafts (reopen, please!), Martha Stewart punchers, distress ink, pearls and lace and doily from various places.

Here is the card from another angle.

Oh and the text? That is Norwegian for good luck!

Soft blues

Here is the card I made for the most recent Art by Mi Ran facebook anything goes challenge that started almost two weeks ago. As my mojo isn’t been playing along for a while, I decided to use one of my favourite images, Rora and Butterfly.

The paper is scraps I had laying about which I roughed up the edged of and layered along with some ribbon, lace and cheese cloth. The lace and pearls are from Live and Love Crafts, as the blue flowers whereas the white rosebuds are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The sentiments are stamps from Lili of the Valley and Make it Crafty.
