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

I think it is time for another card where I’ve coloured the image in myself! This one is made with an image by Sylvia Zet and Wee Stamps. I have coloured it in with copics. For once I opted for a rectangular card, I don’t seem to do that many of those… I used lots of dies for a change, spellbinders, magnolia and I wish I could remember what the swirly one is called… if anybody is wondering, just pop the question in a comment and I’ll find out! The ribbon is by The Hobby House, the punchers by Martha Stewart, the sentiment stamp by Lili of the Valley. The various flowers, pearls and doily are purchased at Wild Orchid Crafts.
