Ballet de Paris

Hello all, happy first of May!

As always at the first of the month, it´s time for a new challenge at Country View Challenges.

This month the theme is: "We will always have Paris".

I made a card with vintage french themed papers.

I made it quite simple, cut out the papers, distressed the edges, colored the edges with vintage phote Distress Ink, layered the scraps, added some cloth, diecuts and homemade flowers - that´s it!


Here are some close ups:




I hope you liked it and feel inspired to make something for our challenge! You know, you can win a voucher for the shop!

Thank you for your visit and have sunny days!

Ich habe jede Menge Resinteile, gegossen mit den Moulds von Finnabair, verwendet.

Das Bild für meinen Mittelpunkt ist von Stefan Keller, ihr findet es hier.

Hello all,

I used a lot of resin parts, poured from the new finnabair moulds.

The picture from my vocal point you can find here.

Ein Video dazu könnt ihr auf meinem YouTube Kanal ansehen. Viel Spaß dabei!

Grungy Bee Card

 Hello all!

Today I want to share my second make for the "The Birds and the Bees" challenge theme at Country View Challenges.

I made a card with a grungy background.


For my background I used Distress Oxides frayed burlap, speckled egg and walnut stain and some distress ink peeled paint. I dabbed the inkpads on my craft mat, spritzed some water on top and swiped a precut, also slightly spritzed with water, Bristol paper through the paint. Then I dried the layer and dabbed in the paint again. I repeated it several times, until I was happy with the result.
I sprinkled some water on top for even more splatters.

Next I took a LaBlanche background stamp and stamped it with walnut stain DO all around the background. Then I spritzed some water on top to fade the stamp a little bit. It is hard to see and very subtile, which I really love.
Then I took the stamp #383, Scripted Hexagons, designed by Bipasha, from  AALL & Create and stamped it randomly to the background. I used DO walnut stain again.



Now I built up the scene. I stamped the flowers from the starburst set from Lavinia Stamps (you can find them here in the shop) with black Archival Ink and filled in the bubbles with a white gel pen.

The sentiment is an old one from my stash and says: Life is beautiful. I also stamped it with black Archival Ink and heat embossed it with Nuvo fine detail black embossing powder.

The bee is also a stamp from LaBlanche. I stamed it with Versafine Clair pinecone, colored it with watercolor, spreat some Wink of Stella clear over the wings, cut it out and gave it a little shape with a ball tool. Then I glued it down.

Last I stamped some leaves from a very old Artemio stamp set with black ink randomly around my card and glued my panel on top of a card.

I hope you feel inspired to make something with a bird or a bee as a main image for our challenge this month! You have plenty of time to make something pretty!
And as always you can win a 20 £ voucher for the shop.

Thank you for your visit!

Three Little Birds - Index Cards

 Hello, hello! 

Welcome to April! Spring is here and hopefully will stay with sunshine and warmer days.

As always on the first of month, there is a new challenge over at Country View Challenges! This month my lovely teammate Sue does host the challenge and she wants to see "The Birds and the Bees". There must be a bird or/and a bee as VOCAL POINT on your project, we don't want to have to use a magnifying glass to find a bird or a bee!

I made three Index cards this time.





I made a process video, so if you want to know how I made these little cuties, you can watch it on my YouTube channel here. https://youtu.be/CHNYJIXgcz4


Thank you for your visit today and I´m looking forward to seeing your makes!

Have a wonderful month!

Hopes and Desires

 Hello everybody, 

this is my second project for the March Challenge over at Country View Challenges "Silhouettes", hosted by the lovely Rachel.

 This time I made an art journal page, having the endless pandemic in mind.


I used a 300gsm watercolor paper as my base and rolled some acrylic paints all over the page with my brayer. Next I used Amsterdam acrylic paint in neon colors: reflex rose, reflex yello and reflex orange. I used a palette knife to spread it randomly over the page.
Now I used 2 different stencils from Tim Holtz, you will find a wide range of Tim´s stencils in the shop. I used a sponge and blue and black paint.
For the silhouettes I used an old Andy Skinner stencil and stenciled the children with black paint directly on the page. It was not easy to get a crisp image, because the watercolor paper is very textured.
The balloon is from the same stencil and I drew it with a pencil and filled the gap with glue. Then I sprinkled pink glitter into the glue.
Now only some washi tape to ground the kids and the sentiment. It´s from the sentiment sticker book from finnabair.
Last I glued the black and neon pink edged paper to black cardstock.

Here some close ups:



I hope you like my page and feel inspired to join in with our challenge! You know, you can win a 20 £ voucher for the shop!



Thank you for your visit today and have a good time!

Silhouette Card

 Hello lovelies!

It´s the first of March and it´s time for a new challenge at Country View Challenges. This month the theme is Silhouettes.

We already had some really warm and sunny days and Spring is nearly here. So I wanted to make a spring card.


I made a simple background by spreading Distress Oxide Ink speckled eggs, peeled paint and mermaid lagoon over my specialty stamping paper. I activeted it with some water.
Now I took some silhouette stamps from my stash (LaBlanche) and used my beloved Versafine Clair Inks, nocturne and warm breeze to build a scene. You can find the Ink pads in the shop.
To finish the card I inked the edges and glued the picture onto a card. 

Now it´s your turn to make something with silhouettes!
Thank you for your visit today!

Spring Time!

Hello lovelies, nice to have you here again!

 For my second project for the challenge over at Country View Challenges with the theme "First signs of Spring" I made a page in my little sketch pad.


I liked the idea of the single flower from my first projekt, so I decided to make another picture with only one flower.
I took my sketch pad, that I use for different "try-out"-projects, glued together 2 pages and prepared the surface with a thick coat of white Gesso.
Then I brayered three colors of acrylic paint on top and did some stencil reverse with my new stencil from Stamperia, "Steampunk" by Antonis Tzanidakis.

It wasn´t as visible as I wanted it to be, so I stenciled with brown ink over all. Then I did some background stamping with stamps from LaBlanche and black Archival ink.

To tone everything down a little bit, I went over some parts with white Gesso.
Now I took a diecut flower from Tim Holtz´s Wildflower dies and made a tulip out of it. I only put some red and green acrylic paint with my fingers roughly on top and when dry I glued it onto my page.

Then I used a very old sticker from 13@rts and did some shadowing with a black charcoal pencil around the flower and the wordstickers to make them stand out more.
Lastly I doodled some lines to the edges and framed the page with a black crayon. 



Here is my little Sketch pad and some of the pages I did before:







I hope you like my little page as much as I do and feel inspired to make something spring related for the challenge too! You know, you can win a 20£ voucher for the shop!
