Two cards with the same image♥

Good morning blogland!
We are noe halfway through our Anything goes challenge at Teddy Bo and we have some wonderful new images in store for you. IT IS A SALE GOING ON THERE, SO BE SURE TO VISIT!!
Last week Gabriella and I sat and had a crafty day, like we often have. She is four years and just love to have all my newest images and colour them with my Copics. She is working hard on the shading and ask all the time: Do I start with the darkest or the lightest here? She is just a cutie and I just love spending this time with her.
I have made a birthdaycard a friend of mine ordered and I think this image is just perfect for those autumn birthdays. And Gabriella made a card for Gayle, the owner of Teddy Bo...
My card first:
A real autumn card!
Love the rich colours from the wonderful papers ♥

Sidewiew showing my new TH die.... Thanks to Kreativ Scrapping it is now mine, I just love that store,- so fast to deliver and so fantastic service.

My inside with a lovely Norwegian poem from Kort og Godt

Image is TEDDYBEA_222 found here in the TB shop

She made a two-coloured stripey jacket for Bea and look at the shading in the face :)
Here is the news in store today:

Have a nice day my sweet friends.
I am heading to bed after my nightshift...

Skin combinations

Good morning my Copic friends :)
This post is in norwegian at the CMN blog
We have had a lots of questions on more colouringtutorials with Copics and today I will show you four of the skin combination I use most.
When you are new to Copics it can be difficult to chose between all the colours, so this is a way of showing some combination. If you use another one and you think we should know about it, we would love you to tell us!
This posts has a lot of pictures, so I hope you will stay with me until the end!
I have used a digistamp from La La Land for my tutorial.
The image is called Cupid Marci and you find it here
My first combination for skin is:
E 00-000-0000 and E93 for her rosy cheeks.
Start with your lightest colour wich is E0000 and do a layer all over the face,

Lay down your shadows with your darkest, E00.
Blend with E000 and go further in than with E0000
Blend it all together with the E0000.
Repeat from E00-0000 until the face has the colour you are looking for

Give the motiv  lovely rosy cheeks with E93 and blend it in.


 My next combination is:
E 21-51-50 and E93 for cheeks
This is my favorite and a more brown combination.
Make the first layer with the lightest, E50

Then the darkest in the areas with deepest shadow with E21

Blend with E51, but as you can see my E51 was empty... (white nib!)
so my blending wasn't that easy and the result not the best!

Go over the image with E50 and blend everything nice together.

E93 for her cheeks

 Here you see the both combination together:
Which is the best do YOU think?


 This combination is darker and some people use it for a more tanned looking skin
E 13-11-00 and E93 for cheeks


 And this combination is the one I like best for darker skin:
E 57-55-53 and R32 for cheeks
This little Cupic Marci even got her legs and arms coloured ;)


Here you see all my four images coloured
If you can't see the different, from right we have:
E 57-55-53 and R32 for cheeks
E 13-11-00 and E93 for cheeks
E 00-000-0000 and E93 for cheeks
E 21-51-50 and E93 for cheeks
Which is your favorite??
I will try to make a card with one of these beauties one day :)
I will later do a hair tutorial showing some different combinations as we also have had some questions about this.
Have a nice day everybody!

 I have made a birthday card for my stepfather as he turned 75 yesterday.
And I just love the colours and elements on this card :)
I have used a fabulous image from Teddy Bo called "car wash king" and I have coloured it with my Copic Markers like always.
The water is glittered up with Stickles and Teddy Bo's raincoat is covered with Glossy accent and it looks really shiny and wonderful. Enlarge the photo to see better :)

My sister, the photographer :)

I have three wonderful sisters that I love very much :)
Last week my baby sister, Ina turned 26 and I asked Gayle, the wonderful artist behind Teddy Bo, D'Arcy's Diaries and Wonderland stamps if she could draw me a photographer for Ina's birthday.
This stamp is what she made and what an image!
I love it and it certainly made my sister cry! LOL
The gift from the family was a new printer, so she was just blown away!
 More vintage like cards from me, but I really love making them from time to time.
Simple back

Here she is, my lovely sister Ina, aka TEDDYBEA_218 found here

Papers from my scrapbox, distressed all edges
Cotton lace from WOC and most of the flowers

Hope you can find the time to join our challenge at Teddy Bo this time. We are having Anything Goes this time so it's a really easy one. The only thing is that you have to use a Teddy Bo graphic.

Pilot Bo

Howdy friends of blogland!
I have made this card for a friend of mine. Her son is going to North Dakota to do a airplane-something-school so I made him a card with a Teddy Bo image called "Flying lessons"
Super cool image and I think the card turned out pretty cool too!
The current challenge at Teddy Bo is Anything goes and I just love it :)
I don't know what the letters means, but she wanted them written there so she got it there!
I just love my new Marianne leafdie!
