Today I'm sharing a fairy image I coloured called "Daphne" by Whimsy Stamps (digital stamp).

Copic marker colours I used to colour her are:
Background: C1, C2, C3, B60, B000, B01
Hair: E21, YR31, E35, E27
Skin: E00, E21, E11, E04, R81 (blush)
Dress, socks and headband: B00, B02, BG45, BG49
Wings and shoes: B01 and BG11
Little flowers: Y15, Y38
Large flower: Y00, Y02, Y15, Y38, YR04, R17
Leaves and stem: G12, G24, G46

The paper flowers in the bottom left and top right were originally white and coloured with BG11 and BG45 Copic markers. I've then added some Doodlebug Design inc. sprinkles - Tangerine glitter assortment.

Cardstock I used includes X-Press It blending card, Bazzill heavyweight cardstock - Robin's Egg (lighter one) and I think the other one is called Candy Necklace. I've also got a white piece of Bazzill (marshmallow) inside the card.

This card was made for a friend's daughters birthday :-)

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Birthday card and Box of Flowers

It was my Mum's birthday a few weeks ago and this is the card I made for her.

Tulips in hobnail pitcher, Copics, PowerPoppy, AnnaBelle Stamps, birthday, handmade card, flowers, jug, vase, Elizabeth Whisson, Alshandra

The image is a digital stamp "Tulips in Hobnail Pitcher" by PowerPoppy (love those images!) and the sentiment is from AnnaBelle Stamps "Standing Tall". I've partially diecut the image using a circle die and fussy cut the rest. Layered the image and added some enamel dots to finish.

Copic colours used
If you can't see the Copic colours in the image: RV00, E53, E97, RV17, RV69, G28, RV29, 0, G24, BG78, E99, RV13, E07 and G20.

I then made my mum some flowers in a box :-)

Elizabeth Whisson, Alshandra, Sizzix bigz dies, Flower layers #7, flower layers with heart petal, dragonfly, we r memory keepers gift box punch board, split pins, bouquet, ladybug, ladybird, handmade

The flowers are all diecut using Sizzix "Flower Layers with Heart Petal" and "Flower Layers #7" bigz dies. I first glued some designer paper together to make it double sided, then diecut the flowers. Curled / rumbled them a bit with some foam and a stylus, then layered them together and fastened with a split pin. I wound some thin wire to the back side of the split pins for stalks. The box is made using We R Memory Keepers Gift Box punch board. I then scrunched up some scrap paper and glued it in the box so I had something to push my flower stalks in to. Once all the flowers were in place I added some Perfect Pearls and sprayed with a little water.

Little firefighter

It was my nephew's birthday a while ago and I've always wanted to do a brick wall with my Copics (I hardly every use the chisel end!) - I thought Mo Manning's "Playing Firefighter" was a great opportunity to try it!

Elizabeth Whisson, Alshandra, Mo Manning, Playing Firefighter, birthday card, male, boy, Copics, chisel,

The image is coloured with Copics. I started with the background (in case I messed up the brick wall) and used the chisel end and a few different colours to create the wall.

All the Copic colours I used for the image

Copics colours I used for the bricks. E53 - base colour. E07, E09 and E99 - bricks. C3 - shadow

Copics colours I used for the "ground"

Baby Liam

A new little baby came into our family a month or so ago - here is the card I made.

Elizabeth Whisson, Alshandra, Mo Manning, G-fa, Copics, Lawn Fawn, Stitched Journaling Card, Quinn's ABC, baby card, giraffe

The image is a digital stamp "G-fa" by Mo Manning. Such a gorgeous little giraffe! Coloured with Copic markers - see below for colours.

I've diecut some letters using Lawn Fawn Quinn's ABCs and the flags from Lawn Fawn's Stitched Journaling Card and then added some glossy accents on top. I stitched some buttons onto the designer paper before adhering to my card base.

 Sorry, the photo is shocking! Taken with my phone. If you can't read the Copic numbers they are: 
YG67, E51, YG63, 0, YG17, YG23, W1, YR24, C00, B00, E50, Y06, E33, W3, W5, YR21, Y17, B0000, YR14 and BV02.
