Fairy summer time

Allergy and sunburn season is up! Or as it is more commonly called: summer. Every summer Copic Marker Norge’s design team have one week each where they are to inspire copic users. This week is my week and here is my first card. I have gone through my stash to find something I’ve not coloured before and I found this. An adorable fairy by Saturated Canary.

I’ve coloured it all in with copics, as always. It would be a bit silly trying to inspire copic users with other tools, right? The various other stash are from Papermania, Wild Orchid Crafts, Martha Stewart and Live and Love Crafts. I’ve made the sentiment myself.

Here is a closer up view of the colouring. I think that is my least favourite part of this whole week… the close-ups.. hahaha.

I’ve semi hidden som flowers underneath one of the layers and here is a sneak peek of them:

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, R20, R22, (hair) RV02, RV04, RV09, R89, (wings and dress) RV02, RV00, Y04, Y38, YR16, (flowers) B00, B02, B05, YG03, G82, G94, (lips and eyes) B00, B02, B05, B99, R24, R89

Rowan Fairy

Friday this week was the 15th of the month and that means it was time for a new challenge at Copic Marker Norge. This time we’d like you to do Red, but not Christmas.

I’ve coloured in this adorable little fairy by Sylvia Zet, using copics. She is called Rowan Fairy.The colours I used can be found below the image. I used papers from Papermania, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts and ribbon from a local shop as well as some Candy from Craftwork Cards.

Special friendships

I’ve just had a short leave from work as my summer holidays and the time passed by much too quick! I had planned to get several images coloured up and cards made and I haven’t even looked at my crafting stuff! I could use another holiday already! The weather this summer has been wet and cold compared to last year, so when we’ve had a little bit of sunshine I’ve hardly wanted to spend that time indoors!

Here is a card I made a few months ago, which I never got around to posting. It is quite a lot simpler than my usual, without being entirely CAS. I love it though. The image is by Sugar Nellie (first time I’ve used one of theirs) and is coloured in with copics. The other supplies are mostly from a local store this time!

Red headed fairy

Time for another card where I coloured in the image myself. I have made a few more of these lately, compared to earlier in the year. I have yet to get cracking on Alyce’s wonderful colouring class, but the plan is to do some this weekend!

Anyway, the image I decided to colour is a Sylvia Zet Wee Stamps image. I figured I’d go out of my comfort zone and give her a completely different hair colour, so I chose red, as it’s reasonably close to normal, heh. I have used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, ribbon from a local shop, dies and punchers by Tom Holtz, QuicKutz and Martha Stewart, and the sentiment is by Kort og Godt. I have used paper from a Tim Holtz pad for both the pink and teal colours.
