ATSM #230: Photo Inspiration


Hello again, friends! Time for another challenge over at Addicted To Stamps and More. This week the theme is Photo Inspiration. All you have to do is create a project inspired by the photo above. You can pick the colours, elements, textures etc. There's no right or wrong answer.  

I'm going for a nursery theme inspired by the teddy bear and colours in  the photo. The stamps are from MFT Snuggle Bunnies.  I added a die cut using LF Picket Fence Border Lawn Cuts (white crib in photo) and tied a bow with Lawn Trimming Cloudy.

I stamped the sentiment with LF Mermaid ink and coloured the images with Copics. And to finish a halo of little droplets of Silver Liquid Pearls.
Challenges:

Chocolate Baroque: Krafty Kingfisher

Hello, friends! I'm back with another project idea. This time I'm going for an intensely vintage look using an image from the Kingfisher Song A5 stamp sheet by Chocolate Baroque.

I stamped the kingfisher onto a piece of kraft cardstock using Ranger Archival Potting Soil ink and coloured the image with Faber Castell Polychromos. For that aged look, I applied Distress Inks in Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo all around the edge of the card. Finally, some Stardust Stickles and little white dots on the water to brighten things up.

The bird was joy to colour. I could not resist adding a little shimmer to his feathers with the Clear Wink of Stella. His eye is a black bling. There's a hint of Tumbled Glass Distress Ink in the sky and I added the puffy clouds with white Polychromo pencil.
Challenges:
Cute Card Thursday #465: No Patterned Paper
Colour Crazy Challenge #7: AG
Cardz For Guyz #157: No Patterned Paper
Allsorts #403: AG

MHKD February Release: Glory Of The Lord


Hello, friends! Welcome to Day 1 of MHKDesigns' February Release Party. Head on over to the MHK Designs ETSY Store for lots of lovely vintage designs that suit all crafting styles.

As a special treat to celebrate the February 2017 Release, Mynn is giving away sets from this release. More on how to win at the end of this post.

Today we have this floral beauty called Glory Of The Lord.


I wanted to keep this card as CAS as possible... which for me is not easy. The urge to fuss and fiddle is too great, but I persevered and produced this:

I coloured the morning glory with Copics, added some Stardust Stickles, a few sequins and finished the card with sheer green ribbon. Suddenly, it doesn't sound so CAS, does it?!
