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:

CMNs 5th birthday

This month we are celebrating Copic Marker Norges fifth birthday! Happy Birthday to us. To kick off the month we have a new birthday challenge. There will be loads of fun things both on the blog and facebook page during the month, so be sure to keep an eye out as there are some great prizes to be won!

The card I made for the birthday is done with an image from Tiddly Inks that I absolutely adore. The image is obviously coloured with copics. Most of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and lace and some flowers from Live and Love Crafts

Green goth maiden

Finally weekend. My sinuses are none too happy so I suppose I will be spending most of the weekend with a bunged up head… Oh well, I guess I’ll get some crafting done, eh!

This card was made for a challenge at Kit and Clowder in their facebook group. You got this gorgeous free digital image by Ching-Chou Kuik and were to colour it in lilac and teal inspired tones. Look at all the butterflies it’s got! Yey! I think this is the first time I have ventured into the land of unusual hair colours. I coloured it all in with copics using mostly BG70s and BV0s for the teal and lilac shades. At the end I added some liquid pearls to the butterflies.

The papers are by Lili of the Valley and this pad fit the colours I used in the colouring perfectly. I have used a bunch of flowers and big pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts and made butterflies with some Noor Design dies. At the end I added a pearl row to give the butterflies a body, and gold glitter to the end of the wings so they tied in better with the ones I coloured in.

Kit and Clowder – Green Goth Maiden colour challenge

Wedding frogs

One of my friends got married in August and she absolutely loves greens and blues. The colour scheme for the wedding was white, obviously, and a dark teal shade. Her best-friend asked if I could make a card with a box for her to give away. It was to keep with the colour scheme, and if possible include a bride and groom FROG! WTF??!! Oh well, I had to give it a go… I also made a matching card and box from myself, and another matching card from a co-worker, as I thought it would be cool to have it as a set. I will post up the others in a few days!

I knew the exact shade of teal as I’d help pick some stuff, so all I had to do was match it up. She was borrowing my Martha Stewart puncher to make butterflies, so obviously I had to add a lot of butterflies to the card. I bought a pre-coloured digital image and printed it. I’ll update with where I bought it as soon as I get home from my holiday as I cannot remember here and now.. I used ribbon from a local shop. The lace and flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts, as are the big pearls. The butterfly border has been made with a Tim Holtz die, and I have them all the dark green shadow and various colours for the wings and added rows of small pearls to create the body.

I used a pre-made box bought at Panduro and decorated it with the same colours, flowers, butterflies and pearls and wrote the name of the bride and groom.

Here is another photo of the card and box together.

I will link up various bits when I get home towards the end of the week.

Red headed fairy

Time for another card where I coloured in the image myself. I have made a few more of these lately, compared to earlier in the year. I have yet to get cracking on Alyce’s wonderful colouring class, but the plan is to do some this weekend!

Anyway, the image I decided to colour is a Sylvia Zet Wee Stamps image. I figured I’d go out of my comfort zone and give her a completely different hair colour, so I chose red, as it’s reasonably close to normal, heh. I have used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, ribbon from a local shop, dies and punchers by Tom Holtz, QuicKutz and Martha Stewart, and the sentiment is by Kort og Godt. I have used paper from a Tim Holtz pad for both the pink and teal colours.
