C4C321, down under

The challenge today at the Crazies is to create a card/project with something down under...
You can find it HERE
 I had to think a bit about it.. This is what I came up with, a girl under an umbrella. The background is made with watercolour paints with some pearlescent water, hard to see in the picture. Sentiment from Just Rite, embossed in black, little girl cut with Silhouette. Some twine as a finishing touch. Hope you like it, Anja

C4C320, let's POP

Challenge day over at the Crazies, it happened to be National Popcorn Day this week so the challenge is to add some POP to our cards or projects.
I popped up my Altenew flower with foam and also by using some bright colours on gray leaves, I think it makes the flower pop.
You can check it out here:

            Till next time, Anja

Happy Friday! Here my card for the SGD blog today, check it out HERE.

C4C319, sketch challenge

It's the third Saturday of the month and that means sketch challenge over at the CRAZIES, you can find all the info and cards  from the design team HERE. Sketch challenges are a great help to me, it makes designing a card a whole lot quicker. I used the flower stamp from Altenew, Beautiful Day, and I cut out the leaves instead of stamping them. The 3 squares are embossed with an unknown embossing folder...sorry, no clue who made it and there in no name on the folder itself. I also flipped the sketch, and that is fine, you are welcome to change it up any way you like. The size of this card is 4 x 4.
Sentiment is also from Altenew, hope you like this card, till next time , Anja

Trying something different...

It's the perfect day to stay inside while the snow is falling and blowing....I am trying some different colouring techniques, this is with the prismacolour pencils. Far from perfect but practice might make it better, lol.
I don't have the happy die from Altenew, but I cut this one and the background with the Cameo.
Flower stamps are from Altenew , whimsical flowers. Till next time, Anja

C4C318, it's bubble bath day!

It's Saturday, challenge time for the CRAZIES. You can check it out HERE.
Apparently it's BUBBLE BATH day, so the challenge is to use some sort of bubbles on your card.
I decided to cut the bubbles with my Silhouette and put them behind the frame, which is raised with foam tape.
The flower is from Altenew, coloured with Prismacolour pencils and Gamsol, then cut out. Sentiment is also from Altenew, can  you tell I fell in love with those stamps, lol!
                                                Hope you like it, Anja

Simple sympathy card

The New Year just started and I already need 2 sympathy cards. I like to keep those simple since it is not about the card at all.
For this one, I used the Golden Garden set from Altenew, I simple stamped it with tattered rose and the outine in chocolate brown, sentiment is from Just Rite. The leaves are coloured with tattered rose distress marker. A few scored lines and some dots on a kraft base.
                                          Till next time, Anja

C4C317, Z fold card!

Happy Saturday! The first one in the New Year, are you ready for a brand new challenge from the CRAZIES?
We said goodbye to some design team members and new people joined us, you can check it out!
The challenge is that apparently yesterday was Z Day.
 Let's celebrate by including something starting with the letter Z on our cards. You could make a Z Fold Card, use a zip or zip image, zinnia, zebra, zoo etc. Let's show the letter Z how much we love it!

So I made a Z fold card and I used a variety of Stampscapes stamps, I took a picture of both because both sides are stamped on. For inks I used Tim Holtz distress inks, tumbled glass, broken china, peeled paint and dusty concord.
                                        Hope you like it! Till next time, Anja
