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.

Summer is best at the beach

1st July.

Goodness… how fast the year is flying by!

Anyway, it is time for some midway inspiration at Copic Marker Norge.  Once again it is a moodboard challenge and I’ve been inspired by the summer and beach feeling along with the colours. The stamp I chose is by Saturated Canary and Krista Smith. The paper is by Maja Design and the chipboard is, as usual, by Make it Crafty.

Here is another photo of the card.

Copics used: (hair) BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (swimsuit) BG15, BG49, BG57, BG78, (towel) V09, V12, V15, V17

LLLC: B/W with a spot of colour

Friday again means it’s time for another La-La Land Crafts project. This time the theme is black and white with a spot of colour. I chose purple as I think it compliments the black and white quite nicely. I’ve mostly keep away from using loads of greys and gone with contrasts instead. I am really quite pleased how it turned out. You can find all the products listed at the bottom of the page along with the copic colours I’ve used.

Here is a close-up of the colouring.

LLLC: Mother’s Day

Friday is now my new designated La-La Land Crafts day. The theme of the week is Mother’s Day. Here we had our Mother’s Day back in February.

I’ve once again coloured up one of their stamps with the no-lines technique. For some reason I seem to prefer colouring their stamps that way. Who knew I’d ever warm up to that feeling! It’s a cool challenge, though, and I’m getting more and more confident with it. I added a little bit of texture to her skirt so it has a bit of a denim feel to it. You can find a link to the stamp and the list of colours below.

I’ve used some Maja Design paper to go with the background stamp from LLLC which I did in a matching purple ink. Isn’t it pretty?! I absolutely love it! The various dies are listed at the bottom of the post. The butterflies are just so pretty and I love that heart die! As I didn’t really have a fitting sentiment I could emboss onto the dark blue background, I simply just wrote it myself! That works, too, right?! The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts.
