Fairy summer time

Allergy and sunburn season is up! Or as it is more commonly called: summer. Every summer Copic Marker Norge’s design team have one week each where they are to inspire copic users. This week is my week and here is my first card. I have gone through my stash to find something I’ve not coloured before and I found this. An adorable fairy by Saturated Canary.

I’ve coloured it all in with copics, as always. It would be a bit silly trying to inspire copic users with other tools, right? The various other stash are from Papermania, Wild Orchid Crafts, Martha Stewart and Live and Love Crafts. I’ve made the sentiment myself.

Here is a closer up view of the colouring. I think that is my least favourite part of this whole week… the close-ups.. hahaha.

I’ve semi hidden som flowers underneath one of the layers and here is a sneak peek of them:

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, R20, R22, (hair) RV02, RV04, RV09, R89, (wings and dress) RV02, RV00, Y04, Y38, YR16, (flowers) B00, B02, B05, YG03, G82, G94, (lips and eyes) B00, B02, B05, B99, R24, R89

Grow a little love

Right, so there is no secret I love Tiddly Inks images, especially all things Wryn! I was on their design team a while back and as they’re having another DT now that I have more time to make cards again I thought I would submit an application. It is a great team to be on, so perhaps you should try your luck also? You can find the DT call here. This is my card for said application. It’s a Wryn, of course! And coloured with Copic makers!

Actually, this is not my favourite. My favourite is the one with the cupcake, eat more cake, but as I used that one for the previous time I applied for a DT, I thought I should pick another one this time. Although I adore all of the winter ones, I decided to go with grow a little love, which I have also coloured up loads of times. I honestly have way too many favourites, I admit it.

I’ve used various stash from Wild Orchid Crafts, Live and Love Crafts (reopen, please!), Martha Stewart punchers, distress ink, pearls and lace and doily from various places.

Here is the card from another angle.

Oh and the text? That is Norwegian for good luck!

Wedding Season

Don’t you juse love weddings?! So far this year I’ve been had to make a handful of wedding cards and I love doing each one. This particular card as made with the request of matching a baby card as they were celebrating both events at the same. On the right side here you can see the baby card I made and if you click on it you will be taken to the post I wrote about that card.

This one is made with my favourite wedding image, from Tiddly Inks and as usual I’ve removed the names that were added at the bottom. It’s been coloured with Copic Markers and I’ve used various embellishments from Wild Orchid Crafts, Live and Love Crafts, Martha Stewart, as well as some acrylic paint and cheese cloth.

Here is another photo from another angle:

Copics used: W1, W2, W3, W5, W7, 100, E000, E00, E04, E11, E42, E43, E44, E47, E49, E53, E55, E57, E59

Mermaid; photo inspiration challenge

It’s the middle of May already! How did that happen?! hmm.. Oh well, it does mean it’s time for another challenge at Copic Marker Norge, and this time we have a photo inspiration challenge.

This is the card I made. I decided on a mermaid to represent the ocean and then I tried to mostly stick to the colours used on the inspirational photo. The image I used is by Ching-Chou Kuik and one of the very first mermaids I’ve ever coloured! Various other bits are by Papermania, Wild Orchid Crafts and Martha Stewart. The image is obviously coloured with Copics.

Here is another view of the card:

Owl you

Guess what I did at the weekend! I finally took the first two out of the series to become a copic colouring master. The course was held at Bikuben with Elizabeth as our fantastic instructor. It was fun to get some new tips and see some of her colouring in person. She’s great, really! Cannot wait for the next two courses in May where there more advanced techniques that I know little to nothing about.

Today we have a new challenge over at the Copic Marker Norge blog. This time we’re playing bingo! If you count the flowers and feathers on the image itself then I’ve covered all the squares of the bingo card giving me a full house. Yey!

The papers I’ve used are Pion, the sentiment Lili of the Valley, the image (which is obviously coloured with copics) is by Ching-Chou Kuik. I am so happy with how that turned out. One of my favourites, actually, I think. Not often I am this happy with an image the first time I colour it! Oh, the cute little butterflies are from Noor Design.

Copics used are: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, R20, R22, (hair) E53, E555, E57, (flowers) R81, R85, RV17, R89, G82, G99, YG03, (owl) W2, W3, W5, E55, E57, (background) B0000, B000, B00, B02
