Happy birthday, friend

Sometimes colouring is more fun than other times. I have been lucky and have had so much fun colouring this year, trying new combinations, trying new types of images and simply enjoying myself! I’ve lost count how many images I’ve coloured so far this year, which is a bit crazy, haha.

Today I will show one of my favourites so far this year, colouring wise. It is a Make it Crafty image. I played around with making a turquoise coloured dress which has a hint of yellow in it. Then I worked quite hard to try to make all the little details in the image show and I’m quite pleased how well that turned out. It was quite fiddly at times!

The background paper is from Paper Cellar, the gorgeous chipboard is also from Make it Crafty and I added the smaller text myself on printed paper.

Want a closer look at the chipboard? I coloured it with the same colours as the dress, and deliberately did it a bit darker.

Here is a close-up of the colouring as well, in case anybody wanted to look at that!

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (white) C1, (hair) BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, (yellow) Y04, YR15, (purple) V00, V06, V09, (dress) BG53, BG49, G40

Flowers for mum

Today is the day we celebrate Mother’s Day in Norway, so of course I had to make a Mother’s Day card! I decided to try something a bit different yet again, and decided to use the stamped image as a border and crop off it. The beautiful flower stamp is from Power Poppy.

I used some textured card stock on the left side of the card with a couple of card candi and then I just printed a sentiment I made on the right side in the bottom corner. It is a very simple card and I quite like how it turned out!

Here is another photo:

Magical dragons

There is a 30 day colouring challenge going on, hosted by Kathy of The Daily Marker. At the start of this challenge I saw loads of cute dragons and decided that of course I needed them, too! They seemed a bit hard to get a hold of, so I quickly just gave up and figured it could wait. A few days later they appeared in the post, as an “early birthday present”. Lucky me! I’m definitely keeping this guy, he understands me so well! haha.

I coloured the My Favorite Things dragons up with Copics and then cut them out by hand. Then I decided that for the first time ever I was going to make a proper stamped card! Yikes! I used two border stamps by Neat and Tangled (aren’t they great?!), and a cloud stamp by Panduro, and possibly for the first time ever used several ink pads for stamping on one project! About time, right?! Then I put it all on a Maja Design for the card base. The sentiment is also by MFT. It was a lot of fun to do, but I need more practice for sure. But hey, got to start somewhere!

Copics used: (purple dragon) V09, V12, V15, V17, Y13, Y19, E97, YG01, YG13, YG67, (green dragon) YR04, YR07, Y13, Y19, YG01, YG13, YG67, RV00, RV02, RV04

Goth Ellie – be yourself

Clean and simple cards are so much fun! I think I am making like two CAS for every layered one atm. Today I am showing one I made for the Paper Nest Dolls, using the stamp Goth Ellie.

I used some candi in the top right corner, and kept them white for a change. I printed a sentiment right onto the card base and then used paper from Paper Cellar. Lastly I cut out the stamp by hand, put her upper body on foam tape to make her stand off the card a little, while keeping her feet firmly on the ground at the bottom where I drew on some shadow.

Here is a close-up of the colouring.

Copics used: (hair) BV23, BV25, BV29, (purples) V01, V06, V09, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (turquoise) G40, BG49, BG53, BG57, (greys) W0, W1, W2, W3, W5, W7, W9

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!

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21,  (hair) E71, E74, E77, E79, (purples) V01, V04, V06, V09, (yellow) Y13, Y19, Y38, YR18, E08, (green) YG61, YG63, YG67, (ground) W1, W3, W5
