Multilayered Card - DT project for Country View Challenges

Hello all, I hope you have a nice week so far. Thank you for being here today!
I want to show you my second project for the November challenge "stencils" over at Country View Challenges today.

This time I made a quite different card and I hope you like it.

Today I don´t have much step x step photos, I seemed to have neglected to take any more 'step' shots, but I´ll try to explain how this all came together.

I took different acrylic paints and brayered them onto the card. Next I used various stamps and stamped them randomly on top (you can see the butterfly from a Tim Holtz stamp set). The next step was to use stencils. I dabbed acrylic paint with a sponge through some stencils, using different colors and left it to dry.

I love the stencil and mask from Donna Downey , but I don´t have one, it´s not easy to get them here in Germany. So I decided to make some by my own.
I drew two silhouettes on cardboard and cut them out. My masks are ready! I placed them on top of my background and sponged black acrylic paint around the masks.

I surrounded the silhouettes with white posca pen and some bright Gelatos. At last I added the word stickers and that´s it.

I hope you liked my card and feel inspired to join in with our challenge. There is time enough to make something beautiful and, as you know, you have the chance to win a 20£ voucher for the shop!

So thank you for dropping in here!

Stencils - DT project for Country View Challenges

Hello dear followers!
It´s the first day of November and that means: time for the November Challenge over at Country View Challenges! This time the lovely Gabrielle has chosen the theme "stencils".
I love to use stencil in my projects and I would love to buy all of them *lol*.
For my first project I made a card for the 50th birthday of a man.

I used two different stencils and colored them with DI walnut stain, using a sponge.

Here are some close ups:

Now I hope you will find time to join in with our challenge this month, as usual you have the chance to win a 20 £ voucher for the shop!
Happy November and thank you for your visit!

Layout "Make a Wish" - DT project for ARTastic

Hello everybody, nice to have you here!
Today I want to share my layout for the November Challenge over at ARTastic challenge blog with you.
This month the inspiration comes from  Poncho Army  and is called Landing. The CRITERIA is: Use a BLACK background.
I was inspired by the bold colors of the bird and used the blue of him on the background and, fitting to my photo, pink.

Here are some steps:
First I brayered acrylic paints in blue tones and pink tones on the background. Then I did some stamping and heat embossed them with EP in white, pink and blue-green (not very much visible, but it gives a wonderful shimmer =) ). Then I stamped some more patterns with Distress Oxides and Archival ink in blue (again hard to see ;-) )

Now I layered my photo with cardstock in blue and pink and distressed pieces of gauze. To make them more matching I colored them with some pink mist.

Next I heat embossed some chipboard pieces with pink and cranberry embossing powder. 

Then I put everything together, added a stamped sentiment and some flowers - and that´s it!

Now I hope you will join in with our challenge this month!
Thank you for your visit!
