Colouring Embellishments on a Christmas Card

>> Sunday, December 18, 2011


Hi Copic Lovers,

How are your Christmas preparations going??? Trees up, cards posted, presents bought and wrapped??  I can't say I am that organised...but I am working on it!!  Still a few days to go before Christmas and still some more days left in our Christmas challenge for you to enter a Christmas card or project coloured with Copics!

I have a card from a set of cards I made my MIL to share today.
I havent coloured any images on this card, but I have coloured some embellishments.

The little die-cut doilie behind the sentiment was white but I coloured that with R59 and the gemstone in the middle of the cream ribbon was silver so I coloured that with R59 as well.  The gem stone swirls were already in that shade of green which matched quite nicely so I didnt have to colour those in.  But of course you can colour them if they dont suit your card or project.

That was it - very simple I know...but still using Copics on a Christmas creation.

Hop on over to my blog here to see all the other cards in the collection and to enter my Christmas candy!

Merry Christmas and happy colouring,

Alicia xx

anything in the Christmas theme using Copics.

Aussie Christmas Card

>> Saturday, December 3, 2011


Hi Copic Lovers,

I am making another set of ten Chrissie cards...this set is for my MIL.  She wants five different designs, two of each and two of them to have an Australian theme...so I used this Santa on a surfboard stamp from SU.  I made two of these cards exactly the same.  I kept the card very simple...I was struggling with embellishments.  What embellishments can you put on an Aussie Chrissie Card...gum leaves, sea shells...I had no inspiration so I just left it plain.

I coloured with:

Skin: E21, E00, E04, E11
Reds: R59, R46, R27
Greens: G99, YG23, G14
Blues: B32, B02, B97
Greys: C-0, C-1

Its great to see so many wonderful entries so far in our challenge.
I will be hopping around them all to get some much needed inspiration!!

Have a great weekend everyone and happy colouring.

Alicia xx
