I love spring .... but it always seems that as soon as spring is here that people start telling you how many weeks are left until Christmas ... arrggghhh!

So here is my card for you today ..... A Christmas card in spring colours ....

  I have coloured the super adorable Sunny Christmas Marci .. and you can find her in the Mad For Markers store .. here.

There's lots of time left to enter!

Here is one of the fabulous Saturated Canary rubber images now stocked at Mad for Markers store.

Windy Day, isn't she so cute?  I have lots of new toys to play with from Mad for Markers store, I splurged and got a little bottle of Copic Opaque White.  This image has some on her dress, hair and shoes.  Lovely to work with.  I also got a few of the Saturated Canary rubber stamps and some new La La Land ones as well, so many stamps yet to see ink!

I've really had a non creative month and it's still going!  Isn't it just awful when your mojo goes missing? All those lovely new items and no urge to create.  I did manage to colour up this fabulous image and I'm happy with the result.  I decided not to make the card up yet as I might use her on a journal page. 

Colours used.
Dress, shoes and kite:  YG61, 63 & 67, E30, 33 and 35, R20 & 23
Hair:  E50, 30, 33, 13
Skin: E0000, 000, 01, 11  Eyes YG61

Let's hope your mojo is working for you and you are creating a masterpiece for this months' challenge!

Spring has Sprung

>> Saturday, September 22, 2012

Hello Copic Lovers,

Well, this is exciting, because it is my first post back with the Mad for Markers team since I had my baby Nicholas and I guess you could say I have been on Maternity leave!

It has taken me five months to get back on track with my colouring and card-making since Nicholas was born.  The Challenge this month at Mad for Markers is to create a Spring inspired project using G and YG markers.  I have used a Some Odd Girl stamp called "Smell the flowers Tia"you can buy this stamp in Sammi's store here for $9.  I have created a journal page using water colour paints for the background.  I coloured the image with Copics using these colours:
Grass: YG03, G94, G99, G14, YG23
Skin: E11, E00, R20
Hair: R59, E37, YR23, Y21
Purples: V09, V06, V04

After making this journal page, I realised I have not used really that many YGs and Gs so I thought I should make another card that is purely green. So I made this one for my neighbour whose birthday it is this week.  He loves skating and skate boards.  This stamp is also available in Sammi's store here.

For this card I used 
G21, G17, G28, G14, G05, G85
YG03, YG11, YG41, YG06, YG03
and B93 for the outline.

Link up your G and YG colour creations to our challenge here.  
Head over to my blog to see lots of photos of Nicholas and to enter my candy!
Only a few days left to enter!!

A big hello to all the lucky people at the Mad for Markers Conference today in Sydney.
I know you will all have a wonderful day!!!

Gorgeous Green Faerie Marci

>> Tuesday, September 11, 2012

Hi everyone, I hope you're enjoying this months challenge to get those Greens and Yellow Green Copic markers out and colour up a storm!

I have to confess that the yellow greens are not my first choice, but I've made an exception here and jumped out of my comfort zone and into this fabulous combo of Purple and Yellow Greens!

There are a couple of little extras included with Daisy Faerie Marci, it's that little cluster of daises on the background paper, I've stamped and coloured that up to make my own paper.  There is also a little sentiment but I haven't used it here.

You will find the complete list of colours used on my blog, link below.

Hope you have fun creating and can't wait to see what you link up!
