Christmas Fairy Holly

I got challenged. Big time. I am a sucker for challenges. Elin wanted me to colour up a specific Mo Manning image, in no-lines. Christmas Fairy Holly. Elin is on the Mo’s Digital Pencil design team and told me she’d never seen this particular image coloured with no lines. No pressure, then… right…

I had tried no-lines twice before. I stayed well clear of anything that resembled complicated, and only coloured images that I had coloured with lines previously. So this was quite the opposite as I had barely even seen the image before and it has some quite small details.

At 8% opacity I, for some unknown reason, decided that it would be a good idea to colour it in the evening. Yeah, don’t follow my lead there! There were times where I could barely see anything at all! A couple of times I got my phone out to use the flashlight to see what on earth I was supposed to colour, haha!

But it went ok, I think. I need a lot more practice with no-lines colouring, though.

I used paper from Maja Design and Lemon Craft as well as a sentiment from Norsk Stempelblad.

Look at that tiny, tiny, tiny snow globe! I have no idea how I managed to make its contents look half decent. I mean, the nip on the Copics aren’t exactly thin! In fact, I am really quite pleased how the snow globe turned out. Not sure I want to try that again, though!

Copics used: (face) E000, E00, E11, E21, E57, RV23, (hair) E41, E42, E43, (dress) R22, R24, R27, R59, YR15, Y11, Y13, Y19, (wings and shoes) YG61, YG63, YG67, G40, G82, (bells) C1, C3, C5, (snow globe) E55, E57, W3, YG61, YG67, G40 + white gel pen

A Tiddly wedding

Tiddly Inks is due with a new challenge! This time around we’d like to see projects with the theme of Friends and Family.

I decided to go with a wedding card. I mean… there is no secret that I love the Tiddly Inks wedding images! This one was out this summer and I think it might be my new favourite for wedding cards. Isn’t it lovely? It is called Garden Wedding. And as always, it’s been coloured in with copics. You can find the colours I used at the bottom of the post.

Along with Pion Design paper, I’ve used various bits from Wild Orchid Crafts (ribbon and flowers), Memory Box (hearts) and I think the butterflies might be Noor Design.

And another photo…

CAS Christmas card with Stella

So my thing this year for Christmas cards seems to be CAS and white. A lot of white and a bit of glitter. For this card I’ve used an adorable image, called Winter Stella, from Make it Crafty which my sister so kindly handcut for me. A small white border has been left around the image as I thought it looked nicer that way, apart from around her feet. That is because I wanted to draw the shadow on the card base itself and not have it as a part of the coloured image.

The sentiment means “Christmas greeting from us to you” and is by Norsk Stempelblad.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E21, E04, (hair) BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, (jacket and shoes) R22, R24, R27, R59, (dress and bottom of the hat) E41, E43, E44, E47, (hat and scarf) YG01, YG03, YG63, YG67, W0, W1, W2, (ground) W5, W3, W2, W1, W0 + white gel pen

Letters to the North Pole, take two.

I was asked to make a card with, Letters to the North Pole, by Paper Nests Dolls. A Hochanda exclusive with sentiment for showing on TV. The program will be on today. I made two, though. Just to show that you can make two matching cards where one is plain and other fancier using the same stamp, sentiment, and even colours.

I’ve used papers from Noor Design and kept this card simple. I quite like plain, simple, Christmas cards.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, R20 (hair) E42, E43, E44, E47 (blues) B91, B93, B95, B97, B99 (reds) R22, R24, R29, R89 (greys) W1, W3, W5 (penguin) C3, C7, 100, (snow) B000, C1, C3

Letters to the North Pole

Two months until Christmas. Today. We celebrate on the 24th in Norway. I bet that will go just as fast as the rest of the year has and it will be Christmas in no time at all. Thankfully I’ve already started making Christmas cards this year!

On this card I am showcasing a Hochanda exclusive stamp with sentiment by Paper Nests Dolls, called Letters to the North Pole. The program will be on the 27th this month. My card is going to be on TV, woo! I’ve made two cards using this cute stamp and I will add the other card here on the blog on the 27th. They have been made to match each other.

I’ve used papers from Noor Design, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and ribbon. I’ve painted the edges with acrylic paint to give the card an even colder feeling, and distressed the edges on the white paper first so the paint would be more visible.

Here you can see the layers better:
