The current challenge at www.madformarkers.com.au is to create "anything but a card" but you must use your Copic Markers on your creation. I chose to make a little desktop calendar it was so much fun and very easy to do.
I love the little Tilda characters from Magnolia Stamps so I chose "Sweet Tilda" from the Raising the Ceiling Collection & Right Through My Heart Collection 2010.
To colour her, I used the following Copic Colours:
Skin - E00, E51, E21,
Cheeks - R20 - (Highlighted with a White Gel Pen)
Hair & Shoes - E31, E33, E35
Dress - YG00, YG03, RV10, RV02, RV06 (Highlighted with Pink Spica)
I then scored a white A4 sheet of cardstock at 3 places 1.5 cm from the top - then again at 12cm and 4cm intervals and folded into my calendar base. I decorated the front of my calendar base in the same shades of Pink and Green as "Sweet Tilda's" dress. I used Coredinations Cardstock in Apple and St. Valentino and from the Kaisercraft Hey Birdie Collection of printed paper I cut my 2 tree embellishments - the larger one I adhered direct to the background and the smaller one I adhered using foam adhesive.I added some rhinestones to both trees to add some extra dimension - the smaller tree orginally had clear rhinestones but I changed the colour to green; using my YG03 Copic Marker. I used a white gel pen to add stitch lines to the green background and the trees. Next I handcut around my "Sweet Tilda" also adhering her with foam adhesive to the background. Lastly, I added my Calendar Pad ( size 50mm x 80mm - mounted on pink cardstock and printed paper ) and for my finishing touches some silk flowers.
