I have another fun multi-brand card to share with you today. The background is made using Distress Oxide ink together with Altenew ink on a Simon Says Stamp background stamp and a Pinkfresh stencil as well as heart stamps by Avery Elle. The dies are from La-La Land Crafts and Papirdesign and I’ve coloured up a girl from The Greeting Farm using Copic markers. The enamel dots are by Altenew.
The new challenge over at Copic Marker Norge has been running for two weeks now and it’s my turn to show some inspiration for our theme birthday. I decided to colour up this boy by The Greeting Farm as I hardly ever make boy cards I thought I’d surprise with one!
Copics used: (skin) E0000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E21, E25, E27, E29, (purple) V22, V25, V28, BV29, (blue) B02, B04, B06, B37, (green) G02, G07, G28, (yellow) Y04, Y17, YR09 + white gel pen
So… I did something crazy! I bought a cheap set of watercolour paint tubes and decided to have a play around to make my own background. It was quite a lot of fun and I really like how it turned out. The colours are so bright and cheerful and the texture is pretty cool, too.
Copics used: (hair) E08, E18, E19, E97, (skin) E00, E02, E04, E13, E15, (clothes) Y13, Y19, Y38, BG49, BG53, BG57
I’m joining in with team 1 this month for our new moodboard challenge at Copic Marker Norge. I have been quite heavily inspired and had some random impulse to just try to make most of it myself.
It is funny really… yellow must be the colour I use the least when I craft. I don’t really like it. But this, this I can live with. I think it turned out quite cool!
I’ve drawn in the background with a Copic multiliner 0.1 black. I went with the patterns and feeling I got from the moodboard. (You can see the moodboard here.) I ended up drawing tons of little lines and it was actually fun! I think I will practice this and try it again. After colouring in the border on top I coloured in the yellow with Y11 and coloured in a couple of candi to match (100 and BV25). I then drew three lines across at the bottom and then started filling it in with loads of little lines before I decided to make the bottom part of the card yellow as well.
Before I glued on the image and the candi, I printed out the sentiment I made on the PC straight onto the card base I’d coloured up. Thankfully I managed to get it where I wanted it… that could have ended quite badly, haha. Now I just need to pick out a thicker multiliner next time I am the shops so I don’t have to colour in thin lines again!
The image I’ve coloured in is by The Greeting Farm. This is the first time I’ve made a card with one of their images. Cute one, right?
Yesterday, my boyfriend made me a new box to take photos in, and I LOVE it! I can now have a background behind the photos to make it easier to see the edges of the cards as well as taking photos of the cards a bit side on. Doesn’t it make the photo look great?!
And now I can also take the photos like this! Yey!
