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.

Some of the copics used, as I can’t remember all: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, R20, (hair) E42, E43, E44, E47, (dress) B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, (ground) W1, W3, W5, W7

Flowers for tea

Yet another card I made last year using a pre-coloured image. Both of the images used here are from Lili of the Valley. The edges of the image got distressed and frantaged. I had fun making a different card design for this one and added a ribbon so it could be tied together. The colour combination is also one I haven’t used much if I have at all. I think the peach and aqua actually worked, though. For the embellishments I used mostly Noor Design dies with a spellbinder one for the circle and a Martha Stewart puncher. All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts as usual.

Pink and blue for you

And here is another imageless card I made at the same time as the other one I posted a couple of days ago. I wanted them to keep the same kind of style, as their birthdays were so close and they might see each other’s card. As I combined the previous blue card with green, I decided to use pink and blue for this one. The papers are Lili of the Valley and the flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts.

Imageless and blue

Here is a birthday card I made on order at the end of last year. I have made so many cards with images I have coloured myself lately that it was quite fun to do another imageless one. I roughed up the edges and painted them alittle as well. The papers are Lili of the Valley and Flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts.

Moonflower’s Tumbelina

The lovely Anne Lise asked me to be guest designer for Barnemix again, so of course I had to say yes! The image I was given to work with is by Moonflower and is called Tumbelina. For this project we were given the theme white on white. Something which I am generally quite terrible at, but I gave it a go!

I coloured it in with copics and figured keeping it all white would be a bit dull! That is why I gave her a glow and a pink dress, but I tried to keep both her hair and the dress reasonably light, somewhat inspired by distress ink colouring actually, and I kept the flowers white. It was fun to try to colour something in lighter shades!

I have used a lot of plain card stock for the card, but a small border with a Lili of the Valley background paper. I used some lace from Kaboks, Martha Stewart punchers and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts as well as Live and Love Crafts.
