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

Magnolia ballerina

It’s been a while since I made a card with my magnolia stamps, so I thought I’d make one. Opted for a green and purple combination.

And the Copic colours I used? I honestly don’t remember, but it looks like it could be my usual skin colours, the E70-series for the hair, the V10-series for the purple, the C for the white and I’m sure there were various YGs for the green.

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

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
