New Challenge in Blogland: The Library Challenge!

Hi friends!

I'm here to share a quick post with a card I made for the brand new The Library Challenge. The first challenge topic there is Pride and Prejudice and here's the challenge info:

If you love reading – or just looking at book covers – this challenge is for you.  Each challenge will feature a book and you can be inspired by :

The cover 
The title
The Story

As you can probably see, I went with the cover! This was my first time coloring with Copics on kraft and I LOVED LOVED LOVED it! I think I'll never color on white again! ;) I also splattered some white paint -maybe a mistake- but I've been splattering all my cards lately. I can't stop it, it seems to be a bug. :) lol!! The fabulous stamps I used are by Altenew and I've actually received them last year as a birthday gift from Marina who is the mastermind behind The Library Challenge

I'd also like to join:

Thanks for popping by!


  1. I’m intrigued by the challenge, and in love with your card, Nonni... honestly have never wanted this parrot til today! Gorgeous Copic on Kraft coloring!!

  2. I love what you’ve made for Marina’s first challenge, these stamps are perfect for it. Superb coloring and I think the white splatter is a great detail to brighten up the darker Kraft. Brilliant!

  3. Gorgeous colouring, Nonni ... kraft or white, you are a genius with Copics ... such a fantastic take on the inspiration! Hugs, Anita :)

  4. The copic colouring looks amazing! I really think the overall effect perfectly reflects the book cover with the parrot being a great twist on the peacock. Thanks for joining The Library - and also for promoting it too!

  5. This is a stunning background, Nonni! A great take on your inspiration! Thanks for sharing this with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!

  6. I think this is such an amazing card, I think it is a piece of art that needs to be framed. And the splattering really works. You rocked this colouring. I am stunned at how beautiful this should be the cover. You should be so very proud of this Nonni x

  7. A nice card, the colouring you've done on Kraft cardstock looks fab and I have to admit - I really like the paint splatters and I do the same as you, I just can't resist splashing on a bit of colour ;) x
