C4C405, inspired by a photo!

Challenge time over at the CRAZIES today, sorry to have missed last week....I had a plan...
This week there is a picture to inspire us, we are asked to use a cake or the colour combo mint/aqua, coral, gold with white or ivory.... I used an Altenew stamp, heat embossed in gold and coloured with Derwent colorsoft pencils. I am also using this card for the last day of the color challenge from the daily marker.

                            Hope you like it! Till next time, Anja

C4C402, use glitter!

Challenge time over at the CRAZIES! Use glitter on your card/project! I love glitter, not so much the stuff in a jar, I like it better contained, lol. For this card, I used a piece of glitter cardstock for matting. I painted the (unknown) flower with twinkling H2O's and put stickles over top. The background is make with Dr.Phil's watercolors, stamp  from Hero Arts.
                                         Hope you like it, Anja

Day 7!

Another Magenta stamp card, this time coloured with Derwent colorsoft pencils.
After I coloured the image, I put a layer of glossy medium over it so that I could make the background with distress ink, after it dried.

Day 4, back to flowers!

For day 4, I coloured up this image from Flourishes, well, it ended in my trash....then I took it out and kind off fixed it by re doing the bigger flowers....After colouring, I put a layer of medium gloss over all the images and made the background with distress ink, tumbled glass.
Sentiment is from MSE. The flower stamp is again in my bag from the garage is a big bag, lol!
                                          Hope you like it! Till next time, Anja

The 30 day coloring challenge!

A new 30 day coloring challenge started today, the 8th one, you can find all the details HERE
(I always spell colouring this way, this language thing confuses me,lol, English is my second language so that might explain it, guess I was doing it the Canadian way)
I really wanna do this, I have a bunch of "new to me" stuff  on my desk from previous garage sales and some brand new stamps from SGD....I need to play! 
You will see a lot of different flowers, lol! The background on this card was made with distress inks, I learned this over at the Daily Marker blog, never thought of doing the background first, great idea!!
The big flower is from Hero Arts, butterfly from Penny Black, little flowers from Altenew, sentiment from Just Rite. I have used my Tombo's to watercolor the flowers, I always used watercolor paper but today I tried it in Bristol smooth, worked like a charm. Some sequins and clear wink of  Stella to finish the card off. Hope you like it! Till next time, Anja
