Colouring Video: Blanche the Butterfly

Today I have a new colouring video to show you. It shows how I have coloured up this entire image by Stamping Bella called Blanche the Butterfly. The video also has the audio in English where I explain what I’m doing from start to finish.

Hello Butterfly

I’ve had so much fun making backgrounds with the new background stamps from La-La Land Crafts. For this card I’ve used the one called Just for You. I think it is my favourite! I love how the pattern looks and that I can have it any colour or colour combination I want. I definitely need more background stamps!

Additionally I’ve used a Magnolia stamp which I’ve coloured in with Copic Markers, chipboard from Make It Crafty and sentiment from MFT Stamps and some candi I coloured in a matching colour.

Here is a photo from the side. The sentiment has been put on foam pads and the chipboard is in two layers.

Thinking of you Marci

Another Monday, another La-La Lands Crafts day! It is getting pretty close to easter and I doubt I will have much time to craft over the next two weeks or so. For once I am pretty much on top of things, though. Go me!

This week our theme is Flowers. A good excuse for me to make a new cards with flowers on. You will find a list of products I’ve used with links to the items below the photos, above the list of Copics. I’ve gotten better at layering up cards again lately at least, not all clean and simple cards, but I am still not great at using flowers on a lot of projects. But here is one! The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts, the papers by Maja Design and charm by Tim Holtz.

The leaves are pretty great. They cut wonderfully and you have one going each direction! Yey!

Here you can see how I’ve layed up the dies. First the Filigree Flower under the image, then the Deco Border around the image itself, and lastly the butterfly on top.

I love these butterflies! I’ve given them a prominent body with a string of pearls.

Here is one final photo of the card from the floral arrangement side.

I’m also showing you a card I made today. I decided to give nolines colouring of Darling Molli a go. It wasn’t very difficult, even if I’ve done less than a handful of nolines colouring in the past. I also played around with a new green colour combination. I do love trying new random combinations by just picking up some Copics and seeing how they work together!

This time I wanted to play around and try a newish layout as well. I did one a few months ago that was a little similar. What I did was that I made the front part of the card much narrower than the inside, so when the card lies down flat you can see part of the inside. The front is about 10cm wide, while the inside is 15cm.

This first photo shows the front of the card only. I decided to keep it simple. I found a green coloured paper that matched the dress, coloured up a couple of candi and used the butterfly die in the same colour as the paper inside the card. After I’d fussy cut out the stamp and put it on I drew the ground directly onto the card base.

This is a photo where you can see the part that is decorated inside as well. When the card lays down flat you can see the border with the happy birthday quite well. I cut out the sentiment die in white and then coloured it up using the same colours that I used on the dress. The border inside is only as wide as you can see in the photo (about 6 cm) which leaves 9cm of blank space to write on.

Mermaid; photo inspiration challenge

It’s the middle of May already! How did that happen?! hmm.. Oh well, it does mean it’s time for another challenge at Copic Marker Norge, and this time we have a photo inspiration challenge.

This is the card I made. I decided on a mermaid to represent the ocean and then I tried to mostly stick to the colours used on the inspirational photo. The image I used is by Ching-Chou Kuik and one of the very first mermaids I’ve ever coloured! Various other bits are by Papermania, Wild Orchid Crafts and Martha Stewart. The image is obviously coloured with Copics.

Here is another view of the card:
