Mad for Markers challenge..

Are you going to join us in the current challenge at Mad for Markers...?
This months challenge is to use your B'S, BV'S and BG'S copics

Here is a card I've made using my copics and an image from The Greeting Farm..

I used a hexagon spellbinder to cut out the shape for the image...
Then used my ink blending tool to put the distress ink edge around the image!

The rosette is made using the Tim Holtz mini rosettes die..
 ( has two different sized rosettes in the one die)

Hi everyone...
I wanted to stop in and show you the card I made to send all the way to Alby..
 also added in some little crafty goodies to the parcel for him to use!!

I used two Magnolia stamps...One regular size and one mini.
These maggies are from the sweet crazy love collection..

Images are all coloured using my copics...

I love using the liquid pearls to frame images...pearls are so pretty!!

Gave the tag a distressed look with my distress ink pads..

I just love the beautiful gold shimmer ribbon... (available in my shop ashcraft and gifts, launceston)

Pretty flowers and silver corners are from Wild Orchid Crafts...

Magnolia shabby frame...

Hi everyone...
I'm here tonight to show you my frame which I finally finished yesterday..
I masked 4 different Magnolia images to create the scene and this time coloured them with my new distress ink markers from Tim Holtz!!
I am loving these markers, heaps of fun to play and experiment with...

The frame was just a blank, so I painted it with some white paint dabber which I then sprayed with some pearl mist from Maya arts. ( was happy with how this come up, probably hard to see the shimmer in the pics but it is sparkly).

Here it is...

The letters, crowns and castle are scrap fx chipboard which I embossed using Tim Holtz distress embossing powder (tattered rose for writing and walnut stain for castle and crowns)
gives a cool distressed look/texture to the chipboard!!

Liquid pearls was used to frame the picture...

Flowers are Wild Orchid...

Close up of coloured image....
To give the grass texture I coloured using a heap of little dots, blended them out then put more dots so on a so on until I was happy with how it looked.

Close up of the two Tildas...

The clouds were cut out with the Magnolia cloud doo hickey die...

Thanks for looking at my post..
I hope you enjoyed my frame...!!

Flower pendant..

Hi everyone...
Hope you are all well!!
Today I made a pendant for a necklace..I stamped my images on xpress it paper,
then coloured them using my copics...
B's, BV's and BG's for our current challenge at Mad for Markers.
Then I put a coat of rock candy crackle paint over the image.
Once that had dried ( speed up drying time with a heat gun) 
I put a bit of glossy accents onto the fragment which I then stuck over the image which was cut to the same shape as fragment piece!
and vwolaaa here it is....

( I havent got a chain to put it on yet )

What do you think....?
You could use them to make bracelet charms and little tags for cards aswell...

remember to pop on over to the Mad for Markers blog and see what the rest of the dt have to share with you :-)
