Hello color bursts.....

Saying hello to you all with a card done with the color bursts and a sentiment cut with the Silhouette!
The little bottles with color burst from Ken Oliver are fun to play with and super duper easy. Just add water, first or after you put the water on your paper, different effects, love it all. The colors will blow you away!
                                              Happy Crafting, Anja

C4C 288, it's almost summer time.....

Happy Saturday! It's a fun challenge this week over at the CRAZIES. Barbera is asking us for a card/project with your favourite summer destination...that's easy, mine is the beach! We are lucky enough to live pretty close to Lake Huron where we can enjoy beautiful beaches. I started with cutting an oval out and a frame, then I both embossed those. The oval I used to make my beach scene, with tumbled glass for the sky and antique linen for the sand, the grass is from Rubbernecker. The chair is from the Silhouette, I cut it out once normal and once with the off set function , so I could layer them, some brown ink to sponge on and some bronze Viva pearls for the nails and such, the seagulls are also from the Silhouette.
Now, to just sit in this chair, listen to the waves and read a book!

It's sketch time, C4C 286

Sketch time at the Crazies, and I have a new stamp to play with! You can check out all the fun HERE.
I stamped this Penny Black flower after inking it up with distress inks, I splattered on some dots and used a shiny background. The shiny stuff is hard to photograph.
I switched the circle to the other side....Hope you like it, till next time, Anja

Happy Anniversary!

Today is Saturday and I completely forgot to make a card for the CRAZIES.......but I did make one for my sisters anniversary..... I got me some bister and colourbursts! A girl can never have enough supplies, lol, the products are slightly different and I love it all!!This background is done with the new colour bursts from Ken Oliver. The red leaves are sponged on with barn door distress ink. At first I could not decide what colour I should use for the butterfly...I cut a red one but then decided on the  black one with a red background.
                                                 Hope you like it! Till next time, Anja

The same stamp....

Sorry, ladies, you would think I owe only one stamp, lol. But I can't get enough of this Magenta stamp and I needed another thank you card. The background is different...I used some acrylic paints, put them on my craft sheet and added a bit of water, I then pulled my watercolour paper through it and dabbed it with a paper towel. I went back in with a wet papertowel and some yellow paint. So simple and I love the effect.
                              Hope you like it, Anja

C4C284, miss seeing you!

Hello Ladies! The challenge this week at the CRAZIES is to put eyes on your card......I had to really think about it....My silhouette came to the rescue, I cut the glasses and the letters, the flower is a memory box die and for the dot on the i, I used googlie eyes ( not sure if thats the correct name).
Hope you like it, till next time, Anja
