Mermaid and watercolour

I have finally tried some watercolour again! I made this background just playing around really. It is quite fun and I think it worked well for my little mermaid from MFT Stamps. I’ve made this card for their sketch challenge this week.

Copics used: (skin) E0000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E08, E18, E19, E49, E97 (tail) BG11, BG15, BG18, BG78

Tiddly Molly celebrates

It is the first Tuesday of the month and that means we have a new challenge at Tiddly Inks. This time we’re playing tic tac toe. I’ve done both diagonal lines and the top row, so dies – stamp – ribbon, dies – patterened paper – lace and lace – stamp – embossing. My card is made using the Tiddly Inks stamp Molly Celebrates. I’ve used paper from Maja Design, dies from MFT Stamps and LLLC as well as my favourite lace and some ribbon I had laying around.

Aurora Wings angel

Do you remember that I used Young Angel by Aurora Wings not so long ago? Well, I had another request for a card using that stamp and that is what I’m going to show you today. This card request was also quite specific with orange being the main colour and using loads of embellishments.

Orange.

When someone asks me to do orange I’m stuck. I’m not a particular fan of the colour and I very rarely use it. But there I was with orange as the main colour, staring at my markers, determined to find a combination I could be happy with.

And I did.

I am so happy with this orange combination. Like… so happy that I might use orange again… for fun!! Yes, that surprised me as well. Now I’m glad I accepted this challenge.

I’ve used papers by Pion Design and MFT Stamps as well as dies from Joy Craft, Precious Marieke, La-La Land Crafts and a puncher by Martha Stewart. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and The Hobby House.

Copics used: (skin) E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E31, E35, E37, E29, (green) YG13, YG17, YG67, (wings) N0, N1, N3, (orange) YR04, YR07, YR21, YR23

Wee Sweety

I had card on order recently that was quite specific in its request. It was to be pale blue, using a specific stamp and loads of embellishments, ideally loads of butterflies. The stamp is by Wee Stamps/Whimsy Stamps.

I’ve used dies from Joy Craft, MFT Stamps, Precious Marieke, La-La Land Crafts and Rayher. The stamp I’ve used on the edge of the coloured image is by Joy Craft as well and the leaves are made with a Martha Stewart puncher. The papers are by Maja Design and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts.

LotV baby girl

Does it seem like I’ve made a lot of baby cards as of late? Well, I have! And I still haven’t shared them all on here, so you’ll be seeing a few more. As usual it is the Lili of the Valley images that I love most for these cards, so that is what I’ve used here too. This card was also made on request. It was to be cute, pink and reasonably simple.

I’ve used paper from MFT Stamps, dies from La-La Land Crafts and Linda M√łnstre Design as well as chipboard from Make it Crafty.

Copics used: N0, N1, N3, R81, R83, R85, Y11, Y13, Y08
