Bella Birthday

Today I am showing you card I made with a Mo’s Digital Pencil image called Bella Birthday. The girl looks perfect for a happy or celebrations card! I decided to keep it clean and simple again, so what I’ve used is paper from Lili of the Valley, chipboard from Make it Crafty.

And here you can see the card a bit from the side.

Copics used: (blue) B32, B34, B37, B39, (yellow) Y13, Y19, Y38, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (hair) E08, E18, E19, E49, E97, (grass) YG13, YG61, YG63, YG67, G99

Magnolia – Christmas gift

I think I might be crazy. For some reason I decided to take part in a mini challenge where I am to make two Christmas cards each month this year. When Christmas finally comes around I guess I’ll have a mini mountain of cards I can send out, though…

At the start of the year I bought a few Magnolia stamps. I have even coloured up a fair few of them already! I decided to use this on one of the cards for January. I kept is really quite simple, with a reasonably plain Noor Design background paper, a Make It Crafty chipboard and a few candi on the side.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, R20, (hair) E71, E74, E77, E79, (dress) B32, B34, B37, Y13, Y38, E97, W0, W3, W5, (gift) YG13, YG67

Happy birthday, friend

Sometimes colouring is more fun than other times. I have been lucky and have had so much fun colouring this year, trying new combinations, trying new types of images and simply enjoying myself! I’ve lost count how many images I’ve coloured so far this year, which is a bit crazy, haha.

Today I will show one of my favourites so far this year, colouring wise. It is a Make it Crafty image. I played around with making a turquoise coloured dress which has a hint of yellow in it. Then I worked quite hard to try to make all the little details in the image show and I’m quite pleased how well that turned out. It was quite fiddly at times!

The background paper is from Paper Cellar, the gorgeous chipboard is also from Make it Crafty and I added the smaller text myself on printed paper.

Want a closer look at the chipboard? I coloured it with the same colours as the dress, and deliberately did it a bit darker.

Here is a close-up of the colouring as well, in case anybody wanted to look at that!

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (white) C1, (hair) BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, (yellow) Y04, YR15, (purple) V00, V06, V09, (dress) BG53, BG49, G40

Hippi hippi hurra!

Sometimes I feel like making something totally random. This is one of those times. I coloured up the image and got a hippie feeling from it, so I went with that idea. I wanted a floral background for it, so I made one with a stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop and distress oxide inks. I then sprayed on some water and splattered more watered down distress oxide ink onto it. The sentiment then sort of made itself to go with.

But only sort of… I made one, did the photos, posted it up and… couldn’t get it off my mind. I really didn’t like how I’d made it. After a couple of hours, I gave up on being annoyed and tried to poke it back off. Slowly it gave way and I could make a new one. Now I really like it! Yey for Ctrl-Z in real life! Haha

Oh and the girl stamp is by Make It Crafty and is coloured with copics. You can find the colours I used at the bottom of this post.

Here you can see the coloured part up close, as well as some of the flowers and dots I made for the background.

Copics used: (dress, shoes and flower) V06, V09, RV02, RV14, YR15, E08, YG03, YG67, (hair) BV23, BV25, BV29, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (grass) YG03, YG63, YG67, G99

Fairy Sunny Day “photos” card

Do you always colour the images as they were when you bought them? Or do you dare to experiment? To crop, resize and make something a bit different? Christy of Tiddly Inks asked a question that (perhaps unintentionally, haha) got me thinking a bit outside the box. I quickly made a few frames in Photoshop using the Fairy Sunny Day stamp to show what I was thinking and was instantly inspired to make a card with it.

My idea was to have several photos in a film strip type style. I aligned her slightly different in each rectangle and then cropped off what I didn’t need. For the final rectangle I zoomed in a little bit to get her nice and close. As I really enjoyed this, you will probably see me do this again!

So what is the most difficult part about using the same image several times?! Trying to colour it somewhat similar in all versions, hahaha. This is the first time I’ve coloured the same image repeatedly for one card! The hair was the most interesting! Let’s see the result.

Isn’t the chipboard perfect for this? Make it Crafty chipboards are great. I don’t know why I took so long to acquire some! I coloured it with the same colours I did her dress and then printed the sentiment directly onto the card.

Another photo, of course. Isn’t Wryn the cutest?!

Copics used: (hair) E70, E71, E74, E77, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (dress) B000, B32, B34, B37, (wings) RV00, RV02, RV04, (flowers) R24, R59, Y04, Y19, YG63, YG67, (sky) B000, B32 + blender

Maybe you’d like to try to make one as well? If you don’t know how to do the frames to put the stamps in, you can use the one I made. Click on the images to get the full size and then right click to save them to your computer. The first one is a .png with a transparent background and the second is a .jpg with a white background.

I would love it if you gave me credit and linked to my site if you decide to use one of them. Please don’t share the images, but direct people here instead. 🙂
