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

Christmas Wreath

It is time for a new Anything Goes challenge in the Art by Mi Ran facebook group, this time the optional theme is Anything but Square. For this card I decided to use a stamp Mi Ran has created for Whimsy Stamps called Christmas Wreath. I have, as usual, coloured it in with copics.

To make the card shape I used Go Kreate dies, I painted the edges with acrylic paint which I also added to the flowers and dies. The green paper is by Pion, the striped red one I forgot unfortunately. The tree dies and small bricks are from Noor Design, the lace is from KaBoks, the flowers are ribbon are by Wild Orchid Crafts, the berry looking flowers are from Live and Love Crafts and the sentiment stamp is from North Star Stamps. At the end I added glitter to the circular white dots to make them sparkle!

This post is with a card I made a month ago, but I couldn’t post it here as it was for my sister. I had asked if she wanted anything specific and her request was that she wanted something entirely different to everything I had made before, with a vintage feel to it. After a lot of thinking, this is what I came up with. Happy birthday, lil sis.
