Pink and turquoise

1st of May already! That means it’s my turn to contribute with a bit of inspiration for this month’s Moodboard Challenge over at Copic Marker Norge! I’ve primarily been inspired by the colours here, and of course the flowers. I did contemplate pink hair, but opted for a pink dress instead. I really do love pink and turquoise together. I have no idea why I don’t use it more often on cards to be honest!

For this card I’ve used a stamp from Mo’s Digital Pencil. Isn’t she lovely? I’ve coloured it in with Copics as I always do and you can find the colours at the bottom of the post. I’ve used chipboard for the leaves from Make It Crafty, a background stamp (I’ve got to say it again, I absolutely love how I can now have a gingham pattern in any colour I fancy!) and dies from La-La Land Crafts, charm and twine from Kort og Godt and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. I made the sentiment myself.

As you can see from the photo below, I’ve added the image part onto foam tape and decorated the inside a little bit to match the colours of the front. I also made a matching box for this.

Copics used: (skin) E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair and basket) E50, E51, E53, E55, E57, (pink) RV52, RV55, RV66, R39, (green) YG00, YG13, YG61, YG63, YG67, G99, (white) C1, C3

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.

Male confirmation card with doodas

Another card I made last year which I have only just gotten around to putting up here. It was made on request and there were a few things I had to incorporate: handball, Columbian colours, lots of doodas and flowers were fine. I had fun making it. The image is by Tiddly Inks and coloured in with copics and the flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts.

Ketner’s Mornings

I have finally gotten into the habit of doing more blog posts! Today I’d like to show off another shaped card I made for a confirmation recently.

Oh, and on a side note.. I have finally added blog to Facebook as well, so if you’d like to follow it, here is the a link: Lizland on Facebook

This is the first time I have coloured up one of Jeremiah Ketner‘s lovely images, called Mornings, and it certainly won’t be the last! I used copics to colour it in and then dabbed a bit of distress ink around the image. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts; the lace is also from LLC. I have used dies and punches from Noor Design, Martha Stewart and Memory Box, as well as Go Kreate to make the card shape.

Konfirmasjonskort

It is ‘confirmation’ season in Norway, so I have had a few requests for cards for this event. This year it has been an even tie between girl and boy cards I have made, but this is the only girl card with my own colouring. I used this lovely image by CCK called so long yesterday, and coloured it in with copics.

I have used Magnolia paper, flowers and lace from Wild Orchid Crafts, ribbon from Live and Love Crafts, candy from Craftwork cards (as well as the card blank), and punches by Martha Stewart which I added row of pearls to.
