Jono @ Mad for Markers...

Hi everyone,

As our challenge at Mad for Markers atm is masculine I thought this card would be of you dont have to use your copics just to colour images you can also colour on ribbon, pearls etc!!

Using my copics I coloured the ribbon and pearls using YG41!!

Hope you like it...

There's a dolphin in the water...

Hi everyone,
Hope you are all well and getting some crafting done.
This is my second card for the week.....yay im on a roll!!

This card I have done using the tutorial in the latest Magnolia Ink magazine... a Gel card.

It was so much fun to make, I really enjoyed it and am very happy with my outcome :-)

I didnt have any blue gel so I got out some food colouring and mixed it into the gel and tadaa blue gel !!

Here is my card...

I went around the dolphin frame using some liquid pearls..

Added in some highlites using the opaque white paint..

Im loving these anchor and shell charms...they are so cute!!

Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts...

Close up of the dolphin in the gel...

I used some Magnolia patterned paper on this card and all the images are coloured using copic markers...

What do you think... do you like it, are you going to give this gel technique a go?
I would love to make another one of these cards...might try a different colour gel next time...

Thanks for stopping by, Ill be back wednesday with a card for The mad for markers challenge...

Pearl of the sea....

Hi crafters..

I made  card tonight using one of my new Maggies..Pearl Tilda!!
She is so sweet with her little sea horse..
I coloured her using my copics and added some liquid pearls to the bubbles.

The rose ribbon at the bottom is from Tim Holtz, I love it.. such a nice ribbon, I'm sure you could add some distress inks or something to it if you wanted to give it different colours, that would look cool!!

Here is my card...

Inked edging is done using some Tim Holtz distress inks..

Added some cheese cloth underneath the image for a netting look!!

The pretty flowers and rose ribbon...

I love these anchor charms I got from the craft and quilt fair in launceston this year..fitted the theme quite well..

I hope you like my card and enjoyed your visit...
