Skin E50, E51, E53 and E93.
Hair C1, C5, C7, C9.
Clothes R81, R83 and R85

Our Guest Designer - JULIE

>> Tuesday, August 14, 2012

Good afternooon,

I was supposed to post our wonderful Guest Designers card yesterday and I am so sorry that I  didn't! So here it is TODAY.... I am hijacking Kasey's posting day .. so please scroll down to see her beautiful creation!

Here's a bit about Julie...
I'm from cold and frosty Sydney, I love to colour and create, Copics and Die cuts are my favourite creative tools along with pretty, girlie images. As you can see from my card today I love to embellish my cards and really enjoy making shaped cards. Aquas and pinks are my favourite colours to use so the BG's or R's always seem to be the first ones I grab, along with some brown or grey of course. I hope you enjoy the card I've created for you today

Without any more from me... Here's  Julie's card for our ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE....

The image (Here Kitty by Penny Johnson for Stampavie) is stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa onto Copic Xpress-IT Card and coloured with the following Markers.

Skin: E11, E00, E000, R20.
Hair and Kitty : E47, E44, E43, E42, E40.
Clothes: BG72, BG11, BG10, BG0000, R83, R81.

Hi everyone, Kasey here.

This month at Mad for Markers the challenge is Anything Goes, as long as you've used copic markers in your creation.  We are more than happy to see scrapbook pages, off the page, journal pages, cards, 3d items, in fact, anything that you copic on, you can post it to this months challenge!
 Last time I coloured 'Royal' from Some Odd Girl, she was all soft pretty purples, this time I wanted something a bit brighter and picked out some BGs.  I've fussy cut her out and popped her up with foam squares to add a little dimension from the background.

Here's a close up of Royal. 

Hair:  E13; 27; 30; 39
Skin:  E50; 51; 53; R20
Dress: BG000; 01; 05  Baby blue spica 

The Design Team would love to see your copic creations so link em up and join in the fun of our challenge this month.

I was flipping through my stack of images for today's post and today's winner is....

Anything goes this month!

>> Thursday, August 9, 2012

Hello there everyone! As it is anything goes month i have a cute little card i made using acetate.
I made this card for my sister - in - law as she has just had a little girl.
Here is the card.

I used a some odd girl image for this card. if you are looking for a some odd girl stamp or two check out the some odd girl selection over at our online store.

I also used several fiskars border punches and a butterfly die. 
The one thing you have to remember is when piecing your card together every little thing can be seen on both sides, so make sure you glue your image to paper not directly to the acetate or you will see the back of your colouring in inside the card.

Here are the markers i used.

Do not forget that we have our anything goes challenge on the right sidebar so do not forget to enter!!!

Carly's first card for M4M ... Anything Goes

>> Saturday, August 4, 2012

Hi everyone!  I'm super excited to be a part of this fabulous team and community!  This is my first card for the DT.

This month Anything Goes ..... what a great challenge theme ...... I can't wait to see what everyone creates.

I have used this gorgeous little image from La-La Land Crafts called Luka with Truck.  This is the first time I have ever coloured him and I decided to do a monochrome card.

I have coloured Luka in the following Copics:-
E11, E13 & E15 - clothes, hair and truck
E000 & E02 for his skin

For the background I have used one of my favourite embossing folders and then rubbed some Tim Hotlz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo over the top of the raised area.  Then of course some cogs cut from a Spellbinder die and once again some Vintage Photo sponged over the top.  The base card does have cogs on it as well.  I used a TCW 6x6 template to do this but not much of it is showing.

You can grab some fabulous La-La Land stamps from the store here.

xoxoxo Carly
