Fall is here...C4C255!

Fall is here and for us it came with beautiful, sunny weather! Love this time of the year!
So for the challenge over at the CRAZIES, they ask you to use leaves on your card.
For my card, I made a background with Gelatos and then I added some alcohol ink....just to see what would happen...did I discover a new technique? I don't know, I was just playing lol. The leaves are done with a gold paper and some Impression Obsession dies, the sentiment is embossed in gold. Some simple score lines and my card was done. Hope you like  it. Have a great day, Anja

Sketch Challenge, C4C254!

It's the third Saturday of the month and that means there is a sketch challenge over at the CRAZIES.
I love sketches, they are so helpful when you wanna make a card and you don't know exactly what you are making...for me it really works, to have a sketch in front of me.
For this card I used a retired CTMH set and a sentiment from Just Rite, the stamp was inked up with markers and stamped on a script background stamp. 
Check out the other cards and maybe we can get you inspired to join us in this challenge! 
                                                  Have fun, Anja

Playing with oil pastels......

I got a box of oil pastels, it looked so good, all the colours in a shiny new box and they were really cheap....I could not resist. Had to figure out how to use them but that's where You tube and Pinterest are for. And let me tell you, they are fun! I added a stencil with distress ink and some gold glimmermist, some dies and sentiment. Love the rich colours, hope you like it too! Have a great day, Anja

Hope you like it, please come over and check out the work of the other DT members and join us, if you can, we love to have you, till next time, Anja
