Hello there, butterfly

I went out yesterday and purchased me another Magnolia stamp, or… a few, actually! I know what I am like with rubber stamps, though, so I quickly stamped up a few of them to have them at hand before I forget all about even buying them… Before I started on the image I had decided I wanted to do one with loads of layers, and pink. Because I haven’t done pink in a while!

As usual I’ve coloured it in with Copics, the pink candi is also coloured with Copics. I’ve used a bunch of Maja Design papers, cut out the text sentiment, used a Tim Holtz charm, some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and a bit of white acrylic paint and frantage. I had to cut out the image by hand as I’d managed to stamp it up so terribly it couldn’t stay with its background, haha.

Let’s take a closer look of the girl. It was a bit fiddly to cut it out by hand!

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (hair) E41, E42, E43, E44, (white) W0, W1, W3, W5, (pink) RV00, R81, R83, R85

Wryn birthday girl

A little girl liked my lollipop Christmas cards, so when her birthday was coming up, I had to make one of these for her! I used Wryn Birthday Girl by Tiddly Inks and coloured it up with Copics. A little bit of glitter was needed and she loved it!

Hippi hippi hurra!

Sometimes I feel like making something totally random. This is one of those times. I coloured up the image and got a hippie feeling from it, so I went with that idea. I wanted a floral background for it, so I made one with a stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop and distress oxide inks. I then sprayed on some water and splattered more watered down distress oxide ink onto it. The sentiment then sort of made itself to go with.

But only sort of… I made one, did the photos, posted it up and… couldn’t get it off my mind. I really didn’t like how I’d made it. After a couple of hours, I gave up on being annoyed and tried to poke it back off. Slowly it gave way and I could make a new one. Now I really like it! Yey for Ctrl-Z in real life! Haha

Oh and the girl stamp is by Make It Crafty and is coloured with copics. You can find the colours I used at the bottom of this post.

Here you can see the coloured part up close, as well as some of the flowers and dots I made for the background.

Copics used: (dress, shoes and flower) V06, V09, RV02, RV14, YR15, E08, YG03, YG67, (hair) BV23, BV25, BV29, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (grass) YG03, YG63, YG67, G99

Hello, my friend

It’s white out. Everywhere. And we are due even more snow tonight. Quite a lot, actually, unless they’ve changed their minds.

So this card is proper spring!

I’ve used a Mo’s Digital Penchil stamp, Make it Crafty Chipboard and Maja Design paper.

I’m really liking the chipboard sentiments!

Copics used: (coming tomorrow, 16.01.18)

Panda bookmark

Well, a panda hat at least! The girl I was making this for had her sixth birthday just last week and has just started reading her first proper book on her own, so of course she needed a bookmark! She requested something with a panda and when I showed her this image she screamed yes so I guess it was just what she wanted! Of course as she’d seen the sparkly dress from a couple of days ago, this dress had to sparkle too, and be pink!

The adorably cute image is by Tiddly Inks and is called Beary Sweet. Such a perfect name!

I will not show the back side of it as it has her name on it. However, I will share the quote I decided to use: ”Allt stort som skedde i världen skedde först i någon människas fantasi.” by Astrid Lindgren. It roughly translates into: “Everything great that ever happened in the world happened first in somebody’s imagination.”

Perhaps I should make myself one too. My goal this year is to read 20 books. Do you have a reading goal?

And here it is on its own.

Copics used: (hair) E71, E74, E77, E79, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (dress) RV10, RV13, RV14, RV17, R59, (white) W0, W1, W2, (black) W7, W9, (background) RV00, W1, W3, W5. + 2 different white pens.
