Christmas Challenge

>> Tuesday, November 29, 2011

Morning Copic Lovers I hope you are not as scared as I am by the fact that Christmas is knocking at our door!

To help you get along with your Christmas cards we have made our current challenge Christmas....I don't have a finished project to show you just some colouring today. I have coloured these Magnolia's up for a project that I am currently working on.

Lot of traditional colours and for each Magnolia I have used the same colour combinations. So I will list by colour:
Red - RV69, R46, R35 & R14
Green - YG99, YG96, YG95
Brown - E49, E79, E77 & E72
Yellow (for baskets and presents) - E99 & Y21
Hair - E33, E35 & E37
Skin - E00, E11, E21, R20 & R21

So get creating and then stop by and share your creations with us here. If you are lacking in a bit of mojo at the moment then you can stop by here daily to get your daily inspiration form my fellow awesome DT members.

If you are needing to do some last minute Christmas shopping then stop by the Mad for Markers Store and see if Sammi has something for you. 

Thanks heaps for stopping by today. Until next time

Christmas Challenge

>> Monday, November 28, 2011

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 
whether they be gifts, cards or decorations....

So my inspiration to start you off is a candle I coloured at the M4M Colour Conference earlier this year (and you can put your name down for the 2012 M4M conference already!!!)

Copics used: E31, E33, YG03, Y02, R27.

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

As a special Christmas gift to you we are returning to monthly challenges, so in this busy season you don't have to feel like you need to rush your colouring.... so sit back, relax, and...
Happy colouring :-)

This fortnight's Mad For Markers challenge is Anything Goes and somehow the card I made for it also went before I took a photo of it.... So instead, here's another card, this time inspired by the grey wet weather we've been having and the ray of life still running through it :-)

Remember that Copics purchased at Mad For Markers

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.

Anything is still the go!!!!!

>> Monday, November 21, 2011

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
