Headphones

 
Once again I used one of the lovely images by DeviantArt artist JadeDragonne. This one is simply called "Headphones". These images are truly a joy to colour and so sweet!

 
The paper I used is from Panduro and I used an ordinary paper nailfile to sand the edges and distress them a bit. I found a piece of black guipure lace and I punched some retro flowers and a few Mangolia swirls.
I added a charm to the lace, and I get a bit annoyed every time I use these charms. Not because of the charms, they are great, lightweight and easy to attach... No, but because I bought an additional bag of forty something charms, and it's gone!!! It's missing, and I've looked everywhere and I cannot find it. So everytime I use one of these charms, I get reminded of the ones that are missing, and it annoys me to no end!
 
I love to use the V90-range of Copics, they give this really soft lavender colour... Her hair was done with black and different shades of grey (not fifty, just two or three...! ;). The skin is as usual done with E00, E11 and E21.

 
I'm joining the ABC Challenge themed L for Lovely Lace this week.

The earrings

 
I did some browsing on Deviant Art the other day, and I came across these absolutely adorable line art cuties (this one is called "the Earrings") by artist JadeDragonne. I downloaded a few, they printed really well and was an absolute joy to colour!
(Unfortunatly I managed to over saturate the paper a bit along her hair line... One of my pens needed a refill, and then I had to go over the same area more times than I usually do, and the result is... Well, a bit blotchy. It does show more in the pictureas than it does IRL though... How typical is that?!? When you sometimes do have some detail on your card that you relly want to show off, it doesn't photograph well at all, but do something like this and the camera loves it!!! ;)
 
 
I kept the card really simple as I wanted the main focus on the image. I coloured her using my beloved Copic pens and for the blues I actually went for the BG-range; BG01, BG05 and BG09. The skin and hair is E-range; E00, E11, E21, E33, E59 and E79.
 
 
I have found two challenges where I'd like to enter this card;
Sketch and Stash - I followed their sketch #111, and my new stash is the corner die from Spellbinders; "Fantastic flourish 2" (really tricky to get out of the die without tearing, but gorgeous).
Cupcake inspirations - use kraft, white and blue
 
I hope you like!

Mådagsskiss hos Stämpelkällan

Hej hej!
Här är jag med en liten måndagsskiss, som publiceras hos Stämpelkällan. Skissen denna vecka ser ut såhär:
 
Vad tycker ni, enkel och bra va? Svårare än vad man kan tro när man ser den såhär bara.
Så här blev mitt kort jag gjorde efter skissen:
 
 
Grymt svårt att låta bli att fylla ut den där stora tomma ytan mitt på kortet. Och ett par stansade swirlar kunde jag bara inte låta bli...
 
 
 
Textstämpeln som jag har använt heter "Gratulerar" (T31). Väldigt användbar. ;)
 
Ha en bra vecka allihopa!
