Watery birthday celebrations

Copic Marker Norge is celebrating its 6 years this month! This is the card I have made for the birthday celebration challenge. Pop over and celebrate with us!

I have used an Art by Mi Ran design by Whimsy Stamps, Coventina, and went for my favourite colours, a mix of turquoise and blue! I’m not sure I’ve actually used this colour combination on a card previously, but I should definitely use it more.

The sentiment is my own, and the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts. The bottom layer of the background papers was originally more grey-teal shaded, but I went over it with blue distress ink to get the colour I wanted for the card. The same distress ink was used around the edge of the image and the sentiment. The papers are from Panduro and Papermania and I did all the edges with a tool I got at Panduro. The dragonflies are my newest dies and they are by Magnolia. Aren’t they darling? The lace is from Live and Love Crafts, the ribbon from The Hobby House and the cheese cloth I bought at Bikuben.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (hair) E25, E27, E34, E41, E59, (dress) BG01, BG05, BG09, BG78, (water) B000, B00, B02, B05 + white gel pen

Shabby green

Here is the third of the three shabby imageless cards I made. I’ve used various bits from various places, including Live and Love Crafts, Martha Stewart, Pion and Wild Orchid Crafts.

And here is a photo of the three of them next to each other. Matching, but different still.

Tiddly flowers for you

Today is Friday. That means it’s time for Fab Friday over at the Tiddly Inks blog! I decided to use Thankful Heart for my card.

I had fun playing around with colours for this one. I decided to take some random colours for the hair and I really really like how it turned out. I think I might have just found myself a new favourite hair colour combination for brown hair! The flowers turned out pretty good also, I think.

And here is a view from a different angle:

Baby giraffe

It is time for a new challenge at Copic Marker Norge. The theme for the new challenge is a new beginning. My contribution this time around is a baby card. I decided to go with one of the adorable baby stamps from Lili of the Valley. It’s been a while since I coloured up any of their images, so I’m sure there’ll be more of them very soon!

Here is a view of the card from a different angle:
