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

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 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

With Christmas just around the corner (well less than a month away), 
it seems appropriate that our current challenge 
should help you all in your Christmas preparations

Remember you must use Copic markers on your creation to enter.

Gretchen has put together this 'rocking' card using Some Odd Girl's Rockin' Kody.  What a great stamp! I could think of lots of people in my life who would love a card like this.  I think I will have to add this stamp to my wish list.

Clothes C9, C7, C5, B37, B34, B32, 0.
Shoes and guitar R29, R27, C1, 0.

Hello to all our Copic Lovers.

We are continuing with our current challenge here on the challenge blog. This fortnight the challenge was "Anything Goes" which is such a great topic because it means you can do anything you like for the challenge. As long as you use your Copic Markers on your creation.

I am continuing with trying to get my Christmas cards finished and have made another one with a couple of cut images from Make It Crafty.

I love the dress on this little girl and with her bow and halo she is just a little angel.

I am loving the lamp post as well. I have added some white glossy paint for the snow and some gold spica pen for the light.

Copics Used:
R32, 35, 37, 39.
         G21, 24, 28.
         E13, 15, 17, 18, 50, 51.
         YR21, 23.

 R35, 37, 39, 89.
                   E25, 27, 29, 59, 74, 77, 79.
                   G24, 28.
                   C0, 02.
                   Gold Spica.

The challenge is open for a couple more days so make sure you get your creation linked to the site. Remember you can make anything you like, it doesn't have to be a card.

If you are missing that special stamp make sure you check the store for lots of cute little images.

Thanks for dropping bye

Anything Goes

>> Friday, November 18, 2011

Hi Everyone,
As you know the new challenge is ........Anything Goes.
I must admit that it is fantastic to see so many entries so far.
Please don't hesitate to join in the fun as there is still plenty of time.

I started to colour the image at the Penrith Paper crafts Festival a couple of weeks ago & decided to use it.
The image needed a matching background so I had a play with my reinkers & this is what I came up with. I hope it inspires you to have a play with the Copic Reinkers.

Copics Used:
T0 to T10
BGO00, BG01, BG02, BG05
YR02, YR04, YR07
Clear Spica

Background: Reinkers BG01, BG02, BG05, BG07

Crackle Paint - Rock Candy
Kaisercraft Letter stickers

Don't forget to stop by the Mad for Markers Online Store for all your copic needs.
Mad For Markers is participating in the 'Rewards System' to help celebrate 20 years of Copics in Australia.

Until next time

New Challenge - Anything Goes

>> Monday, November 14, 2011

Hi Copic Lovers,

Alicia here, to start us off on a fresh, new, fortnightly challenge:
Anything Goes.

I made this card for my cousin Caitlin who was sitting her HSC this term.
I wanted to let her know we were wishing her well and supporting her through her exams.

I used this cute little Some Odd Girl stamp called "Thinking Mae".
I purchased her through Sammi and you can buy her here.
The sentiment comes with the stamp.  Which I think is a great bargain for just $9.

She is fun and easy to colour.  Her hair is quite a simple style .

These are the Copics I used:

Purples: BV08, V17, V15
Skin: E00, E21, E11
Blacks: 100, C7, C5
Greens: G17, G05, Go2
Outline: C1

The papers were all out of my scrap drawer.  I added a lilac bow and some gems and glitter to finish it all off.

Are you going to join in our Anything Goes challenge this week?
No excuses up a card or project you have made with Copics.
I cant wait to see what you create!

Alicia xx
