Taste of winter

Happy New Year!

New year means new colouring opportunities, even more so this year as I was very lucky and received a full Prismacolor pencils set for Christmas from my boyfriend! I still haven’t dared to touch them, though, and the copics will probably continue to be my favourites.

A new years also means new challenges and fun at Copic Marker Norge. To kick off the year we have a Winter themed challenge starting today and this is my inspirational card using a Mo Manning image from Mo’s Digital Pencil called Taste of Winter.

I used various embellishments from Wild Orchid Crafts, Live and Love Crafts, Noor Design, Panduro and Dovecraft.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (hair, sledge and trousers) E42, E43, E44, E47, (jacket and hat) W1, W3, W5, W7, G40, G82, G94, G99, (scarf and mittens) G40, G82, (shoes) 100, W3, W5, W7 , (sky) B000, B91, B93, (star) Y04, Y17, YR04

Presents for the baby deer

Another card made with a pre-coloured Wild Rose Studio topper. It is so cute! I added some frantage for extra snow. The snowflakes are made with a Tim Holtz die and a Martha Stewart puncher. The fence is made with a Magnolia die, which I added some white paint to. I also added some paint to the Wild Orchid Crafts flowers to keep with the snowy effect.


Christmas draws near

It is almost Christmas! In fact half of the December days that lead up to Christmas are almost over.  I think I best get those last Christmas presents bought soon! Anyway, it is time for another Christmas card, a non-blue one!

The image I chose is a wintery one called Winter Sofia by Mi Ran. I love her stuff. It is the same image as I used a few weeks back as well. Definitely one of my favourites! I coloured it in with copics and added white frantage for a snow effect. I also used some liquid pearls in the top left of the bottom patterned paper as another snow effect.

I have used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and painted the edges white. In addition I used a Papermania doily, some cheesecloth, papers I’ve had forever, Tim Holtz distress ink and some ribbon I bought at Range.


This card has been entered into the following challenges:
