I wanted to make something for Australia Day ... and had not
done so yet.... I thought I'd colour up some of my Gumnuts in ... I
printed them lightly so I could have the almost no lines effect... It
was a bit darker then I thought but that made it easier for me to colour

Well I thought it was about time I posted something in 2013. I've been enjoying a little break from creating by reading over the past couple of years and thinking about all the different craft projects I've completed or at least started in that time. I've also been considering all the different things I'll like to get done this year so I hope you enjoy them as much as I will...
This week I did manage to do a little colouring and pulled out my trusty Copics in my new favourite shades to colour up an image for the Mad for Markers Challenge this month. The theme is Australian for Australia Day on Jan 26th so I thought I'd remember all the Aussies abroad who'll be having a colder Australia Day than me...

so australia day is almost upon us!!!
and this month is all about copic markers and australian images.
and what better way to say G'day and with a koala!
so here is my card i created.
I made this card with Lawn Fawn- critters down under stamp set. i coloured the image with the following copic markers.
lil inkers nesting rectangle stitches dies to cut out the image. i then used my Fiskars border punches - banners away and boundary waters, to embellish the card along with some buttons,twine and then a fiskars squeeze punch called scalloped heart to cut out the glitter heart. I finished off with a sentiment.
Don't forget you can still enter the challenge over on the right sidebar till the end of the month!

January 26th is Australia Day therefore we have continued the Australian theme this month. Australia to me means sunshine and beaches although it hasn't been hot enough to venture into the water down here yet. For my card I used Cali Girl from Saturated Canary.
I am looking forward to seeing what Australia means to you in your creations.

You don't have to have kangaroos or koalas just something that symbolises Australia to you, or you could go with the Australian colours green and gold. To enter your creation should use copic markers and fit the Australian theme.
