Shy violet and frustration-inked background

Have you ever been so stuck on a card that you have fuzzy cut it twice? Once with a border and once without? And then been so frustrated on what to do with the actual that you’re almost just throwing away the image? Well this happened to me, on this card. It’s possible because it is yellow. I am not very good with yellow. So how did it end up as a card?

Well… I got out one of my copic refill ink bottles and just tossed some ink down on the blank card, then I got a cotton pad which I poured more ink on and just rubbed it on the white background. And there we go. It wasn’t supposed to be pretty, or planned, or anything. In fact I liked how it just showed my frustration somewhat, hahaha. I made a sentiment text and printed it out and layered it between the inked background and the coloured image.

A perfectly reasonable way to react when you cannot think of what to do, right? haha. I really quite like it, though, and I will definitely do more cards like it. Although… it will be more intentional next time! Maybe I should do a tutorial on it then…

And the image? That is Shy Violet by Tiddly Inks. The card is for the new Tiddly Inks anything goes challenge. Come join in, will you?

Enjoy the summer

If you have noticed that I am late with this month’s card for the Copic Marker Norge challenge then you’re absolutely right! One of the super ladies on the team offered to swap teams with me this month when I was running short on time in the middle of June. Thanks!

I’ve used a Make it Crafty image for this enjoy the summer challenge theme we’re running. For a change I’ve not used the full image, but cropped it closer. Isn’t she adorable? It’s been coloured in with copics, of course, and you can see the list of colours below.

Other supplies used here are from Live and Love Crafts (now closed down), Wild Orchid Crafts, Martha Stewart punchers, some cheese cloth and pearls. The paper, if I remember correctly, is by First Edition Paper.

Copics used: (hair) E08, E18, E19, E49, E97, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (dress) YG03, G82, G94, G99, W1, W3, W5, (flowers) Y04, Y08, YR04, and a white gel pen

Male confirmation card with doodas

Another card I made last year which I have only just gotten around to putting up here. It was made on request and there were a few things I had to incorporate: handball, Columbian colours, lots of doodas and flowers were fine. I had fun making it. The image is by Tiddly Inks and coloured in with copics and the flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts.

Beauty and the Beaker

I made this card for one of my co-worker’s birthday last year. The image is more than perfect because it even looks like her! I’ve coloured it all in with copics. The letters are made with a Noor Design die, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts. I’ve also used some Martha Stewart puncher. And the perfect image? That would be Saturated Canary. It is called Beauty and the Beaker, and I’ve cropped off about half as I really wanted it close up.

New tiddly release flower with Shy Violet

New Tiddly Inks release time! Yey! I actually managed to colour up two of the new images before they went live. They are so very cute! Here is the first one I did. It is the violet included with the Shy Violet stamp. Trust me to choose to colour up the included stamp and make a card with that, rather than the main one! This stamp is great though, you can use it for ANYTHING! Perfect!

Obviously I coloured it in with copics.. I’ll let you know the day I use something else! The papers are by Lili of the Valley, the doily Dovecraft, the lace Live and Love Crafts and the butterfly dies Noor Design. The flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts and I added dark pink glittery glue inside so they would match the flowers I coloured up. I’ve also used distress ink, liquid pearls, rows of pearls, and a ribbon from a local shop.
