Space fun

I spent the weekend at Hobbykunst Norge colouring up various My Favorite Things Stamps. I got to meet some great people interested in both the colouring and the stamps and I got a few stamps coloured up to add to my already rather large pile of coloured images! One of the stamp sets I coloured up was the astronaut and space themed set. And between my colouring sessions on Saturday and Sunday I managed to make it into a card, too. I decided to go with the MFT sketch of the week so I could enter it into their challenge.

The paper is by Studio Light and the rhinestone stars are by Rayher. You can obviously find all the products at Hobbykunst.

Here is a photo of the card laying down flat as well, and a little more close up.

Nurse, another word for hero

A co-worker recently quit to start her life as a nurse in another part of the country. I simply had to have this stamp set from MFT Stamps for her good-bye card. Colouring white on white is always a challenge, and I wanted to do it in no-lines. I tried the fade-out ink from Inkon3 again, and it’s perfect.

Copics used: (face) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, R20, R22, (hair) E41, E42, E43, E44, (white) N0, N1, N3, (green) G21, G40, G94, (grey) N5, (ground) W0, W1, W3, W5

The way you move

Last weekend I popped by Hobbykunst, one of the card making shops near where I live. This stamp, from Stamping Bella, is one of the few things that came back home with me. I will be back there next week to hold a demonstration on how to colour with Copic Marker, primarily on My Favorite Things stamps.

Neste uke er jeg innom Hobbykunst på Karihaugen i Oslo for å ha demo med Copic Marker-fargelegging, både lørdag og søndag. Ta turen innom hvis du vil se hvordan jeg fargelegger i hovedsak My Favorite Things-stempler. Stemplet jeg har fargelagt til dette kortet finner du her.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, R20, R22, (green) YG01, YG13, YG17, YG67, (pink) RV63, RV66, RV69, (hair) E08, E18, E19, E49, E97, (grey) N0, N3

MFT Superstar – CAS

Another one of the challenges for this year’s My Favorite Things Superstar is to make a clean and simple card. I actually made a couple today as I had a few ideas and this is the one I’ve decided to enter with. I’ve used the rubber stamp Fresh Cut Flowers and stamped it with a faint coloured ink. Then I have masked it off and coloured a stipe of it only in mostly greyscale, apart from the leaves which I wanted to remain green. For the sentiment I’ve used a text stamp from the Ewe Are the Best set and the you part of the miss you die which I’ve coloured up to match the rest.

Copics used: G21, G40, G94, N0, N1, N3, N5, N7 + black multiliner 0.3

Birthday boy

The new challenge over at Copic Marker Norge has been running for two weeks now and it’s my turn to show some inspiration for our theme birthday. I decided to colour up this boy by The Greeting Farm as I hardly ever make boy cards I thought I’d surprise with one!

Copics used: (skin) E0000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E21, E25, E27, E29, (purple) V22, V25, V28, BV29, (blue) B02, B04, B06, B37, (green) G02, G07, G28, (yellow) Y04, Y17, YR09 + white gel pen
