Two Christmas Cards - Easy but Elegant for Country View Challenges

Hello everyone, nice to have you here today!

Christmas comes in sight, so I decided to make a couple of christmas cards for my second post at Country View Challenges. The challenge theme this month is Hand Stamped, which means the vocal point must be stamped, not only the background or some parts of the project.

I was inspired by the gorgeous Blanche Siegmann. You can find her christmas card samples on her blog or on YouTube.

I used the beautiful stamp set from PaperArtsy Eclectica³ by Scrapcosy ESC07. It is available in the shop.

If you want to see how I put these cards together, you can watch my process video on my YouTube channel here.

Thank you for your visit today and don´t forget to play with our challenge! You know, you can win a 20£ voucher to spend in the shop!

Have a wonderful week!

Welcome Fall - Art Journal Page with Shawn Petite stencils

Hello all,
November already and before I will jump into the christmas projects, I want to share a art journal page I did with Shawn Petite´s new Fall stencils.

 I love these stencils very much!
This is what I did:

I started with old book pages and matte medium. I glued big pieces to my whole page, dried it and gave the page a light wash with white  Gesso.

Then I stenciled the leaves with different colors, yellow, orange, red, violet, green and brown, with Archival Inks through the Fall Leaves with Masks stencil.
After this I used three different pumpkins from the Pumpkins Variety stencil and stenciled them first with white Gesso on the page. After they were dry, I painted them with acrylic paints, shaded the pumpkins and the leaves with black charcoal, 
Last but not least I stenciled the words from the Fall Words 1 stencil to the page and darkened the edges with a black crayon.

 now I hope you like my journal page!
Have a lovely weekend!

Real Gentlemen - Card for Country View Challenges

Hello everybody, nice to have you here today!

For the November challenge at Country View Challenges I made a card for a man. The theme this month, hosted by my lovely team mate Christine, is Hand Stamped, the vocal image must be stamped, no digital stamps are allowed.

I went through my stamps (well, there are a few 😋😎) and found this stunning gentlemen from PaperArtsy! I really love this stamp, although it is not easy to get a good, crisp print (the stamping platform is enormously helpful!)

This is what I did:

 For my background I used a gear stencil and soft matte gel. When the gel has dried, I colored the page with acrylic paints in teal and brown and used antiquing paint. To grunge it up I scrubbed antique paste over parts of the surface, used DI ground espresso here and there and to color the distressed edges. Lastly I highlighted the stenciled gears with golden wax paste. 
 For even more interest I randomly stamped with brown Archival Ink a script stamp and a postal stamp, both are from PaperArtsy, on top.

My main image I stamped several times with Versafine clair in nocturne and pinecone, colored the faces with DI antique line and colored the background with DI tea dye and darkened the edges with DI ground espresso. Then I put it on a thick piece of cardboard.

I I matted the picture with a distressed piece of cheesecloth, added some diecut, painted gears, a clockface, a flower and some paper rolls. Then I adhered it to a card and lastly I added two metal knobs.

Now I hope, you grab your stamps too and join in with our challenge this month! You know, you can win a 20£ voucher for the shop!

Thank you for your visit today and happy November!
