Colouring Video: Heart Tied

Sometimes colouring in red can be a little bit intimidating as some people find it hard to blend or get the red to look as they want it, so for this video I’ve decided to colour the majority of the image with red markers. The image I’ve coloured is from the latest Tiddly Inks release and is called Heart Tied. I posted up the card I made with this image about a week ago and you can find it here.

Tiddly Heart Tied

Tiddly Inks has a new release out and I love it! It was so difficult to choose which stamp to colour up first, but I settled for Heart Tied in the end. I did film while colouring, so if you check back next weekend there’ll be a colouring video up on my blog with this image.

I’ve used Maja Design paper, Make it Crafty chipboard and some washi tape as decorations, keeping the card simple as usual.

Here is a view of the card laying down flat

Merry Christmas everyone!

Today is the day we celebrate Christmas in Norway and I have the honour of showing off a project for the last day of the Christmas calendar over at Copic Marker Norge. I spent forever and a half to decide on what to colour and eventually decided to combine two images from Mo’s Digital Pencil (singing elf Brynn and singing elf Wynn) and colour it up with no-lines. It went great until the very end where a great red blob threatened to ruin the image. Thankfully my stubbornness came in handy and I managed to fix it up reasonably well, so I don’t think you can see it too well know without knowing it’s there.

I’ve used paper from Papirdesign, a sentiment from Kort og Godt and then twine and ribbon and lace and a charm as well from various places.

And with this card I’d like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

It’s been a lot of clean and simple Christmas cards this year, and by a lot I mean that most of them have been CAS! So, I decided it was time for something different and proper traditional colours. It is my turn to show off something in the Christmas Calendar over at Copic Marker Norge today, and this is what I decided to make. It is perfectly reasonable to decided to make something with loads of layers that takes longer than CAS does when you have hardly any time at all, right?

Anyway, I used this adorable stamp from Lili of the Valley. I have a feeling I’ll colour it up again before Christmas, if I can only decide on which colour to use for it! I combined it with lace I got from Live and Love Crafts, Papirdesign paper and sentiment. Then I used some acrylic paint around the edges of the layers and some twine along with a gingerbread charm. And it’s obviously coloured up with Copics as usual. You can find the colours listed at the bottom of this post.

Here is a photo from the side you can see how the card is stood on a surface.
