Happy birthday {CopicMarkerNorge}

CMN 50 skrått front PhotoshopOur current challenge at CopicMarkerNorge is a bingo one. There’s still a couple of days left before the deadline, feel free to join us!

CMN 50 front Sureya PoliciaMy card for the challenge is a birthday card I sent to our CMN boss lady Siv, her birthday is today. I chose to do a magic card this time, the center part is about 6×6″, so this card is quite large. I’ve taken out products that I rarely use for this one – patterned paper by Melissa Frances (Betty-Ann), Patternscape Design (Brokade 2), and 7 Dots Studio (Love Me), along with Prima flowers. The “wings” are made using a Martha Stewart PATP punch (Vintage Lace) on the Bazzill Rain cardstock. I’ve also used a Magnolia doohickey die (Antique Lace) for the horizontal panel on the center of the card front, and the edges are inked with Creamy Brown ink.

Sureya PoliciaThe image is “Policia” by Sureya on DeviantArt, colored (of course) with Copics. The colors I’ve used are at the bottom of the post. The image is diecut with a Lifestyle Crafts circle die.

The color did, however, match the 7 Dots paper perfectly, making it an easy choice!!

I airbrushed the diecut with BG53 and 45 before removing the cardstock from the die. I added FabScraps pearls around the circle.

I’ve added a seam binding bow to the tag and a jute string bow on top with a button from My Mind’s Eye to finish it off. The Stempelglede text stamp on the pocket is stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and I’ve added 3 pearls from Kort & Godt as the last little finish on this second inside.
