Little ballerina

It’s been a while since I made anything. In fact I haven’t made anything “for fun” in almost a month. It’s been a rough month. But today I finally felt like making something again. The image is one I coloured up for the 30 day colouring challenge a while ago, but never got around to using it. Now it’s made its way onto a card and I quite like it!

The adorable little girl is by Mo’s Digital Pencil, called Lil Ballerina (it is one of the retiring images, so be quick!), whereas the sentiments are by Penny Black and MFT Stamps. And I kept it very simple.

Here you can see the card from the side. I’ve added the white onto foam tape and used a purple card base.

Copics used: I will add the colouring details tomorrow, once I relocate them… hahaha

Blue floral ballerina

A very special co-worker of mine had her 60th birthday quite recently, so I wanted to make her a special card. She loves blue, and knitting, so they were two of the things I wanted to include. I also wanted to colour up something fiddly as I knew she would appreciate it. The stamp I decided to use is one of my favourites at Aurora Wings. It’s so pretty! Everything is coloured up with Copics and then I stamped a Noor Design flourish in pale blue around the edges of the image.

The papers are by Papirdesign, the charm by (probably) Kort og Godt, the flowers by Live and Love Crafts as well as Wild Orchid Crafts. The leaf dies and the scalloped circle are both from La-La Land Crafts. As the final touches I added some cheese cloth, transparent water drops and candi which I coloured in a matching blue.

Here you can see the card viewed from the side.

Here is a close-up of the colouring.

Earth Ballerina

I had a request for a ballerina card in earth tones, and this is what I came up with. The gorgeous stamp is by Aurora Wings and I’ve used various bits and bobs from Kort & Godt, Wild Orchid Crafts, Martha Stewart, Noor Design, Live and Love Crafts. The hair lost some of its vibration in the photo, but oh well. Can’t have it all!

And here is a closeup of the ballerina charm down in the corner. Isn’t it lovely?

Another flowery ballerina

Today is the day. My first proper unspirational post for Copic Marker Norge. I have admittedly put it off because the other girls are super talented and I enjoy looking at their creations. But when you’re due, you’re due, and I am! Don’t forget to enter in our current bingo challenge while you’re there!

I absolutely loved how this ballerina from Aurora Wings turned out last month, so I decided to colour her up again. This time the image is 7.5cm (whereas it was about 10cm last time) so I had to be even more careful and watch the details even closer. It was quite the challenge, but fun!

The papers are by Pion, which I ruffled up and layered with some cheese cloth (bikuben), lace and pearls (LLC), and ribbon. The flowers are as usual from WoC and LLC. I made the top sentiment myself and the bottom one is from LotV.

Flower Ballerina

I am a little slow adding my post for the newest Copic Marker Norge challenge. That is what happens when you finish it last-minute before you head off on a short holiday, and don’t have the time or the connection to blog while away! Anyway, the latest challenge theme is Ribbon and/or Lace.

The card I’ve made for this challenge I made for my cousin’s confirmation. It’s a fairly big thing here and in Norway. As my cousin really quite likes my cards I had to try something different. What I ended up with was choosing to try to colour one of Aurora Wings‘ images while I’ve had laying about for a while, Flower Ballerina. It has merely been too daunting trying to colour it as I was worried it wouldn’t look very good at all. I’m glad I did try as I’m rather pleased with how it turned out. Now I cannot wait to colour it again!

As usual the image was coloured in using Copic Markers. I used paper from Papermania and plain card which I painted with white acrylic paint around the edges. I used a bunch of flowers and the ribbon from Wild Orchid Crafts, some flowers and lace from Live and Love Crafts. The puncher is by Martha Stewart and the cheesecloth I purchased at Bikuben. All the small silvery dots around the image was added using liquid pearls by Ranger.
