July 15 UNDER THE SEA

Afbeelding
While it's hot outside, I'd like to take a dive, won't you? Therefore I enjoyed creating this mermaid card for the My besties International challenge blog. This month you can enter any card you like but the optional theme is under the sea.

I used several Dutch Doobadoo mask art stencils to make the background with pan pastel. I colored the my besties image sea shell Susy (which is to be found here) with my winsor and Newton brush markers. The shell I colored with Colori pearl paint which gives the shell a mother-of-pearl shine (which is hard to get on a picture). To finish off the card I used several cutting dies from the 'under the sea' collection of Noor design and the flowers came out of the one of a kind "spring" collection of Noor design.

I hope you will enter your card as well! There are beautiful images to win!







July 1 UNDER THE SEA

What better theme you could have for the summer than under the sea? I love it! Therefore I made this card with a lovely mermaid from My besties. The digi is to be found here.


I first printed my digi on the paper and colored it with brush markers of winsor and newton. I made a mask to protect my digi and printed the background on top of it. For the background I used two colors of alcohol ink on my gelliplate and a Dutch Doobadoo mask
I finished the card with several Noor! design dies fro the serie "under the sea".

June 15 SUMMER

Afbeelding
We had a sunny couple of weeks down here in the Netherlands. I just enjoyed the sun and nature. In the meantime I created a card for the My Besties International challenge blog. You still have ten days left to enter a card. The theme is anything goes with an optional theme " SUMMER".

I made this card. Eventhough I don't drink any coffee at all, I've got lots of friends who can't get through their day without a couple of cups of coffee all year through.  I used the design paper "hug in a mug" by Noor design as well as some Noor design dies for making the flowers. The digi I used is  a fluffy bestie which is to be found here.

The easel shaker card is a model which Jolanda Bergmans showed us during a live workshop. The video is placed on youtube

Don't forget to place your card at the My besties international blog.

June, summer is coming, yet we already had so many hot summer days here in the Netherlands....Time of a new challenge at my Besties international challenge blog.  Please feel free to enter any project you wish.

This month the theme is anything goes with an optional theme SUMMER.

I choose a Fluffy Bestie image to work with which is to be found here.

I For this card  I made a step fold card



I used Winsor&Newton brush markers to colour the image 



All the embellishments are cutting dies from the "under the sea" collection of Noor! design together with some little shells. I finished the anchor with a bit of metallic ink from coliro.

The beach houses are from the same under the sea collection of Noor! I gave them a bit of colour with Distress ink (stormy sky).
For the dolphins I used the same distress ink stormy sky, but I gave them a little extra effect by adding  an Inkssentials "crackle accents" by Ranger. Such a stunning effect.

Hope to see your entry soon.
summer …
