Magnolia ballerina

It’s been a while since I made a card with my magnolia stamps, so I thought I’d make one. Opted for a green and purple combination.

And the Copic colours I used? I honestly don’t remember, but it looks like it could be my usual skin colours, the E70-series for the hair, the V10-series for the purple, the C for the white and I’m sure there were various YGs for the green.

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.

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.

Copics used: (hair) BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, (skin) E00, E04, E13, R20, (dress) B32, B34, B39

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?

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (hair) E08, E19, E49, E97, (clothes) E25, E29, E41, E42, E43.
