This week I got to make a card for a really nice occasion. It's a card for my friend to celebrate the birth of her 2nd gorgeous baby - Matthew. I struggled to find an image amongst my stash that was suitable so I went on the search of a digi image which would be appropriate. I was dead chuffed when I discovered this little beauty!
I had to doctor the Pink Petticoat papers a bit to make them match though..... They were originally in a pale pink and I wanted Sweetcorn and Envy. I worked out the RGB codes from some other PP sets I have and then altered the background colour of the original heart ones using these numbers. Voila! Funky, coordinated papers!
Digi Stamps: 'Elephant Walk' from Cuddly Buddly.
Paper: Pink Petticoat Christmas Freebie set.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black), Copic markers and Copic Spica Pen.
Embellishments: Craftwork Cards 'Card Candy'.
This week, I've also been getting frustrated with my Copic Storage. They were in a huge pencil case and it was taking me ages to find the right colours. So, I took and idea on Kim's blog and expanded it a little using one of Lauren Meader's Timeless Templates.
I made two of the desk tidies and stuck them back to back as I knew that one wouldn't be enough for my ever expanding collection of Copics! I covered each panel with some giraffe print paper that Ali bought me as a little gift a couple of months ago.
I also made up a little grid thing from slotted together pieces of card. I made sure that each of the sections that were created were the perfect size for one Copic to stand up in. I'm really please that because they stand neatly and tidily, I can arrange them by colour family and by number. However, according to Ali, this makes me incredibly anal!
Hope you have a great weekend, despite this miserable weather!
P.S. Just realised that I can use both of these little project for this weeks Papertake challenge - Animal Antics - and also my Copic tidy for this weeks ABC Challenge 'Not a Card'! Woo-hoo for me! ~♥~Pin It
