Card featured in Ett Trykk

Right around new year, when people were busy deciding on what resolutions to make and whether or not to keep them the following day, I decided on a half random impulse to submit two cards for a magazine! Yup, that’s right. It even made it into the magazine! So I have now proudly had one of my cards featured in Ett Trykk. Yey! Although I really don’t like the background they decided to add to it.. but at least here on my blog they will be without that background. Yey!

I’ve used Mo’s Digital Pencil‘s dandelion girl stamp called Make a Wish for this. I absolutely adore her! I think it is one of my favourite Mo stamps! The paper is from Paper Cellar and the sentiment stamp is by Norsk Stempelblad.

I had to submit a couple of extra photos, so why not add them here as well!

Here is a close-up of the coloured image, too.

Copics used: (hair) E70, E71, E74, E77, E79, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, (green) YG61, YG63, G67, G99, (yellow) Y11, Y13, Y19, Y38, (grey/white) C1, C3, C5, C7

Happy Momster’s Day

Today I am guest designing for Sasayaki Glitter. I picked this totally super-awesome Monster Family stamp for my project.

The background has been made with Distress Inks, the purple is a regular one and the green is an Oxide. I simply couldn’t resist making my own sentiment because of the look on what I take to be the mother monster’s face. I love it!

Copics used: (green) YG63, YG67, G21, G40, (yellow) Y13, Y19, (orange) Y000, YR00, YR02, YR04, (purple) V91, V93, V95, V99, (red) R00, R20, R22

Goth Avery

I was requested to make another card for the Paper Nest Dolls to match the one I made at the start of the year. (You can find it here.) This time I went for soft pastels and pink, but kept the card design similar and the hair colour the same. Once again I made the sentiment myself and printed it straight onto the card base. The paper is by Paper Cellar.

Yup, I know the photo is a bit wonky, but hey!

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E02, E15, (hair and other grey) BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, (dress) V91, V93, V95, R81, R83, R85, R39, (doll skin and ground) W3, W5, W7

Foxy Marci

It is Monday again and that means it is time for another inspirational post for LLLC. The theme this time around is nature.

The image is coloured in with Copics. I used my favourite red hair combination for the fox face and her coat. I think that worked out rather well. Maybe it’s time I do start using it on something other than hair, haha. I’ve used various Bazzill and Maja Design papers for the card, printed a sentiment to go with the die cut word and coloured up two candi in matching blues to the dress.

All details and links on the La-La Land products will be found at the bottom of the post, after the photos.

The butterfly stands out from the card beautifully and I’ve decorated it with a string of pearls for the body.

Here is a close-up of the colouring.

Goth Ellie – be yourself

Clean and simple cards are so much fun! I think I am making like two CAS for every layered one atm. Today I am showing one I made for the Paper Nest Dolls, using the stamp Goth Ellie.

I used some candi in the top right corner, and kept them white for a change. I printed a sentiment right onto the card base and then used paper from Paper Cellar. Lastly I cut out the stamp by hand, put her upper body on foam tape to make her stand off the card a little, while keeping her feet firmly on the ground at the bottom where I drew on some shadow.

Here is a close-up of the colouring.
