Let's get sketchy, C4C219

Welcome to another challenge over at the CRAZIES .
This week it is sketch time, I changed it up a little bit, putting my circle on top of the strip, I hope that's okay, lol! I had a lot of fun with this card, can you believe it all started with white paper? I got my alcohol inks out to make the strip on the left and the butterfly. I put some embossing paste over top with a stencil, the paste is white but it picked up the silver from the alcohol inks, pretty cool! Embossing folder out of my stash , inked with some Tim Holtz tumbled glass and sprayed with silver glimmer mist, nice and sparkly!! I also sprayed the circle, it is a Nestabilitie. The sentiment is from Just Rite, a cut a strip of white, used a corner punch on the end, inked and sprayed and voila, all done.
I wish you could see this card IRL, the picture doesn't show the sparkle and the details.......
Come and join us in the challenge, we would love to have you!!!
                             Till next time, Anja

C4C218, a skinny card!

A skinny card!! I wish I could post a picture of a skinny me....if it was only as easy and fun as making a card, it could happen, lol! This week the challenge from the Crazies is to make skinny card, size 3.5 x 5.5
I made a special envelope for it with my envelope board but it fits in a standard size. I started out with a white base and cut the front panel slighty smaller, embossed that with an embossing folder from Cuttlebug, Anna Griffins foulard folder, and then sponged on some Tim Holtz antique linen distress ink. The white oval is a die from Crafts too, the kraft oval underneath is not exactly in the middle...bummer..... The flowers are a die from Memory Box, bow from my stash and sentiment on a nestabilitie and from Stampin Up. Lastly I added some Ice white Viva pearls. The card is in the mail already for my sister, who I really miss!!!

A new challenge for the "Crazies", C4C217!

Welcome to the first challenge for 2014 with the Crazies!!! This time we have a photo for your inspiration, you can check it out HERE. I went with the colours, black, white and silver. I combined it with some hearts ( the embossed background) and flowers (Poppy die from Memory Box), great way to send some wishes for the New Year, did not wanna do snowflakes since we got a lot of snow already, lol! You see the reflection of my hand from taking the picture in the silver paper, don't know how to fix that.
Come on over and check out what the other design team members have created and join us if you like, we would love to have you!! Thanks for looking, Anja
