GDT The Paper Nest Dolls- Flower Friend

Hi friends, 
Hope you had a nice weekend. I had time for some crafting, luckily, and here's my GDT card for the Paper Nest dolls. I played with a fun fold I found over at the Ett Trykk blog, it's a slide card.
I made the card a little bigger than the template to make it fit the colored image.

I used papers by Bildmålarna, flowers by WOC (I colored them with my copics B63 to make the color fit the papers and image), Charms from ebay, dies are Spellbidners Large Oval and Scalloped Oval and Magnolia Lovely Fence and Marianne grass dies. 

The image is from the Fairytale collection over at The Paper Nest Dolls, this one is called Flower Friend. Copic Markers used: 
Skin: E13-11-21-000, R20
Hair: YR24-23, 14, Y21-11, E35-37
Dress: R000-02-20, E43, W1
Flower: B66-63-60, W3
Dots. C01, B60-63, W00-01

Here the slide card open. I stamped a Stempelglede sentiment on the lower part and made room for writhing on the top slide. Cute fold, isn't it?

 I used smaller versions of the spellbinder dies on the slides. 

Hope you like it! 
Thanks for stopping by today! Wishing you a wonderful week!

Happy birthday Ett Trykk!!! - Mini tutorial on how to color an image using distress inks.

Here's my card using Distress inks to color the image.
Materials used: Maja Design design papers, Sizzix Tim Holtz- Picture Wheel dies, Spellbinders - Swirl and corner dies, La La Land crafts - Lattice border dies, WOC and Kort og Godt- flowers, Panduro - pearls. I used my sewing machine on the edges of the design papers, and Vintage photo distress ink. Sentiment stamp by Norsk Stempelblad. 


Here are the two images, copics left and distress inks on the right:


Here are some tips on how to color using distress inks:
When coloring with distressink I stamp with StazOn ink on Heavy Aquarell paper (300g) and I use a thin synthetic brush to paint. I use distress ink  pads, refills or markers. When coloring apply a small amount of ink with a brush (or marker), dip the brush in water, wipe some of the water of on a a paper towel and use circular movements to blend the ink, quickly before it dries. Repeat layer by layer with the colors you want to use.

I start using Tattered Rose (top right), then a second layer using Vintage Photo (top left). Cheeks are a mixture of Tattered Rose and Aged Mahogony (just a little tiny drop). For the hair I use Antique Linen for the first layer, then Walnut Stain another two or three layers.

Bodice and branch are colored with Antique Linen, then Walnut Stain and I use Black Sooth for shading (a very small amount). The bird is colored using Wild Honey and Vintage Photo. Black Sooth for the eggs. Leaves are colored with Bundled Sage and Black Sooth.
The skirt is colored using Velvet Rose, and then Black Sooth for shading. 
The background is Stormy Sky.


The beautiful image is Red Rose by Little Darling Rubber Stamps/ Saturated Canary

Hope you picked up a tip or two. And I do hope you will be joining in the challenge over at

DT Copic Marker Norge: Album

Hi friends,
Hope you are enjoying your weekend! It's time for a new challenge over at Copic Marker Norge today, and our theme is use Pink and Brown (inspiration photo).
I made an album box, I found a pic on pinterest who led me to the creative work of the Paper Hoarder Disorder. And I bought the template of her etsy store. It was a lot of work, but fun to make. I made it as a gift for my gorgeous niece, I hope she likes it.

The album is made out of chipboard and covered with Bazzill Vanilla and Pion Design papers. Dies are Tim Holtz/Sizzix and Marianne Design. Flowers by WOC and Kort og Godt. I used my sewing machine along the edges of the image and design papers. 

The image is Song by Saturated canary. Copic colors used: 


 Here's the album inside the box. Love how it folds out. I scrambled the pics, because I don't think my niece would like it if I didn't. lol. I didn't decorate too much inside, because it would be too much with all the colors in the pictures. The album has 6 double pages on each side and every page has a pocket with a tag.

Here's a pic with the flaps folded out:) 


 Hope you like my Album/Box!

Pop over to the Copic Marker Norge blog to see the beautiful creations of the rest of the DT, and join in for a chance to win some Copic goodies.

Hello crafty friends, 


Here's a card I made for Copic Marker Europe this week. It's a card for a new baby boy. I love this Mo Manning image, you can use it for so many occasions, and I decided it could be a boy or a girl, depending on the colors used.

I made the colors in the colored image neutral so I could go either way... this time it's a boy!
I used Pion Design papers and some sweet newborn charms and sentiments. Pretty simple decoration really. Dies by Magnolia, Spellbinders and Memorybox. Flowers by WOC and Kort og Godt. 

The image is Baby Fairy with Ladybug digi from Mo's Digital Pencil. 
Copics used:
Skin: E13-11-21-000, E93, W5
Wings and clothes: W7-3-1-00
Hair: E44-43-41-40
Ladybug: E18-R27-24-22
Ground: W5-3-1-00

Coloring tutorial: No- lines technique

Hi friends, 
Here's a coloring tutorial I made for Copic Marker Norge, on how to use the no-lines technique. If you want to read it in Norwegian, just pop over there
The whole clue is to stamp an image using lighter ink, like light brown or gray, to get the lines as invisible as possible. 
If you love digi's like I do, it's just as easy to lighten the image before printing. I do it in Word on my computer. 


Here's my finished card.
The papers are Maja Design, Flowers by Kort og Godt, Hobbykunst and WOC. Dies by Tim Holtz (bird and cage) Memorybox (swirl) and Spellbinders (oval and scalloped oval). Sentiment is part of the Flower Fairies set, I used the no-lines technique on that too.

Here's how I color the image
Flower Fairies by Wee Stamps/Sylvia Zet.

 I start by coloring the skin-parts of my image using E000. Then E11 where I want the darkest shadows.  Then blend with E21 and E000 again.

Next I go over the darkest shadows using E13 this time, E11 again-  and finally all the skin colors again. I added E00 for a smother blend. I keep layering the color until I am satisfied with the blend, hthe more layers the better the blend. But also you have to stop before your paper is full off ink. Try 1 or 2 times, and see if you are happy with it. 

On to  hair color. I start by using E55, flicking in the direction of the lines on the image. I go on using E53 and E50. Then on to E57 to make the deepest shadows...

Then back to E55, 53 and finally E50.
On the dress I start with BG72 where I want the deepest shadow, then I use the the darkest marker BG75, and BG72 again. Next my homemade BG71, and finally BG70. I go over the dress several times using all 4 markers. The flowers are colored in the same way using BV23-25-23- 20, and leaves G43-46-43- 40. I start with the middle tone, then the darkest marker, the middle tone and then the lightest one.
 Same thing with the pink markers R83-85-83-81 and with the greay W3-5-3-1-00 on the collar and the wings. And finally with the yellow YR21-24-21-20.  When I am happy with the blending I draw on the details using Copic Multiliner Gray 0,3. You don't want to use a black pen as it will be too defined and break the soft look. 

These are all the markers used: 

And BG71 wich I blended myself using BG70  and BG72 refills and an empty marker :) 

Hope you are inspired to give it a try!
