CMNs 5th birthday

This month we are celebrating Copic Marker Norges fifth birthday! Happy Birthday to us. To kick off the month we have a new birthday challenge. There will be loads of fun things both on the blog and facebook page during the month, so be sure to keep an eye out as there are some great prizes to be won!

The card I made for the birthday is done with an image from Tiddly Inks that I absolutely adore. The image is obviously coloured with copics. Most of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and lace and some flowers from Live and Love Crafts

Fairy Lily

Time for another anything goes challenge at Art by Mi Ran’s Facebook group! The optional theme this month is music, which I decided (yet again) to opt out of! For my card I’ve used the adorable Fairy Lily. I’ve been wanting to use this image for a long time, and I finally did it!

The papers are First Edition papers, the flowers Wild Orchid Crafts and the dies are by Noor Design. The sentiment is my own.

Arielle Flora Fae

It is time for a new challenge at Copic Marker Norge. The theme this month is “lag på lag”, or layered for those of you not fluent in Norwegian 😉 . The image I decided to colour is Arielle Flora Fae from Faery Ink. This is the first time I have coloured up one of these super cute images!

I went completely colour crazy here; I was in the moody for a bright and cheerful card. Although I used several layers on the background paper, I decided to show that it doesn’t necessarily have to be the papers that are layered, so I decided to use punched out flowers and layer those up as well.

CMN – Heart

I have some very exciting news.. I made it onto the Copic Marker Norway design team!! Can’t you believe it?! I primarily sent in the application for the DT call hoping that perhaps they would consider me next time around, and I actually made it onto the team! I am so chuffed! I am very much looking forward to working alongside such talented ladies and maybe inspiring people a little on my own along the way.

Today there is a new challenge at CMN – use dies. I went completely overboard on the dies using a ton from Noor Design and the card template die from GoKreate. The image I chose is by Ching-Chou Kuik, called Love, and (obviously) coloured with copics. For once I also cut the image out by hand! I decided to go with pinks for a change, because it was mother’s day here yesterday and it seemed to fit perfectly. The papers are Lili of the Valley and First Edition Paper. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts as is the dark ribbon.
