Monochromatic

It is right in the middle of Easter and it is time for a new challenge over at Copic Marker Norge. This time around the theme may be a bit more challenging, it is monochromatic. I think it was fun, though, although I cannot recall if I have ever tried to colour in black and white before.. maybe once? hmm. The only problem I’ve had is when I’ve coloured it in, it’s hard to take a photo that will show all the nuances in the colouring, but hey can’t win them all..

The image I’ve used for this is by Make It Crafty. I’ve cropped the girl so it’s possible to see the details when coloured with only a few markers. I’ve used Copics, as always. The paper is from Papermania, sentiment from Lili of the Valley, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and the punchers are Martha Stewart ones.

And a side on view.

Copics used: W0, W1, W2, W3, W5, W7, 100

Rosa sløyfe hos CMN

Copic Marker Norge has made an annual event of contributing to the breast cancer awareness month of October. The DT have all made cards to sell for this event, and this post is for my contribution. The rest of the text on the page will be in Norwegian, but if you are interested in purchasing the card by contributing to this great cause, contact me and I shall provide the required information in English for you.

Da er det atter oktober og Rosa Sløyfe aksjon til inntekt for brystkreftforskning. Hos CMN ønsker vi også i år å markere dette ved å selge kortene våre til 100kr – og oppfordre alle til å gjøre det samme. Pengene kan settes inn på CMN Designteam sin innsamlingsside. Her finner du også informasjonen om hvordan du går frem for å kjøpe et eller flere av kortene vi har for salg.

Vi tar selvfølgelig også imot donasjoner fra de som ønsker å delta uten å lage/kjøpe kort.

I 2015 var det Nina som sto for innsamlingen hos oss, og hun fikk inn 1500kr! Denne gangen er det Kjersti som ordner i stand. Det er mange kort og vi håper dere har lyst til å være med også i 2016!

Kortet jeg selger som er et nytt prosjekt til akkurat denne begivenheten:

Zoe Party Girl

There are various reasons why I’ve not been very good at updating the blog very often for the majorty of the year so far. I am hoping it will change soon.

Here is the card I made for the most recent challenge at Copic Marker Norge. This month’s theme is bingo. I made three different lines: 1) Cheesecloth – Text – Flowers, 2) Lace – Flowers – Stitching, 3) Buttons – Text – Stitching.

The image I decided to use is a brand new addition to my collection and my first Make It Crafty image. She is called Zoe Party Girl. As always she is coloured in with Copic Markers.

Papers are by Panduro and Lili of the Valley, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts, the cheesecloth is purchased at Bikuben, and the lace is from Live and Love Crafts as well

Paris

I spent last night and this morning watching the news. Unable to understand how someone is capable of such horrible actions. targeting innocent people just enjoying life at a restaurant, a football match, a concert. Previously at the beach, at work, on the train, at camp. The list is getting long. I am sad. It could happen anywhere, to anyone. It could have been my friends. It could have been me.

I wanted to practice my colouring today. I was staring at my copics, finding no motivation to start. Then I had an idea. I can practice colouring on anything. I went searching and I found the perfect image to practice on. It has the perfect name of.. Inking of You and is by Tiddly Inks. I got the Eiffel Tower at Make it Crafty.

Ajourd’hui nous sommes tous Français. Today we are all French. My thoughts are with the dead, the wounded, the witnesses, their families and friends, the people of France. Be strong.
