vintage 2012 calendar

Hello, I hope you all had a good weekend, over too soon I know. But Monday is Cupcake day so can't be too bad. So, over at Cupcake Craft Challenges, we have a new challenge, which is colour on kraft.

Well I must admit, when I first saw this challenge, my heart sank. I thought I could never colour on kraft with copics. BUT ... WOW!! I started colouring and was amazed how easy it was. The only difference was that my darkest shade of each colour had to be a shade darker than I usually use. 

From the outset, I had decided I would make a 2012 calendar in a cd case.

Papers used throughout: Making Memories ~Travel 6 x 6 pad. So good to use some of these papers as I've had them for 3 years and never been used.

Image: Magnolia ~Tilda in Spring Rain. I coloured her with copics and added some stickles.
I made the flowers with my Marianne Design ~ English Rose die. So awesome, I love this! Need never buy another flower again ... but don't hold me to that! I added some stickles to glitz it up a bit.

I made the template for the calendar using excel. Took me forever, but I am pleased with the end result.

Here is the cd jewel case.
and here are my calendars ...

I am also going to enter this in at the following challenges:
Thank you for looking.
