Trust your crazy ideas

Hello everyone, 

I have made this postcard with the Dancer set from Vera Lane Studio... Isn't that cat cute !!! I made a 'wall' from book paper and drew the little canopy on white card stock to put above the door. I finished off with washi tape and a Tim Holz Small Talk sticker.

I used the new Just Dance set :

You will find it HERE

Dancers don't need wings

Hello everyone,

For my DT post for Vera Lane Studio today I had some fun with the new set called 'Just Dance'.

She is adorable isn't she. I had loads of fun colouring her with my favourite Copic Markers. She has been adhered to a gelli printed background the same as the sentiment.

A chance to dance

Hello everyone,

I have a postcard for you today. It was made with yet another gelli printed background. I used a couple of Vera Lane Studio images. This little dancer is so cute ! I thought I'd pair her with something unusual ! :o)

Lol... I suppose it is a chance to dance... All images were coloured with Copic Markers, cut out and adhered to the card. I also added some washitape for the car to 'drive' on.

A different use of stamps...

Hallo allemaal,

Hello everyone, 
Vandaag heb ik een setje van 3 ATC's om te laten zien. Met deze set wil ik laten zien dat je heel gemakkelijk een stempel kan aanpassen aan een ander formaat, simpelweg door alleen een gedeelte te gebruiken of zelfs een afdruk op maat te knippen.

Today I want to show you how to adapt a stamp to suit your projects simply by cutting or masking bits off. 
Zoals jullie misschien nog weten heb ik vorige maand deze kaart gemaakt:

You might remember this card that I made last month.

Met deze zelfde stempel (deze afdruk is één stempel behalve het woord Daydreams) heb ik nu een setje van 3 ATC's gemaakt. ATC's worden veel geruild en geswapt en hebben een afmeting van 2,5" x 3,5" precies ! In mm is dat 63.5 mm x 88.9 mm.

With this same stamp which is one image (apart from the word Daydreams) I made this set of three ATC's. 

en hier zijn ze afzonderlijk zodat je ze beter kan zien :

Here they are separately so you can see them better:

Op wit card stock heb ik acrylverf gebrayerd. Ik heb eerst geel, oranje, roze en blauw gebruikt en daarna wit eroverheen om het wat af te zwakken. Toen ik tevreden was heb ik het card stock in ATC's gesneden. Daarna heb ik met verschillende kleuren inkt die er mooi bij pasten (roze en grijs in dit geval) de achtergrond hier en daar bestempeld.

I started with brayering acrylic paint onto card; I used yellow, orange, pink and blue. I also used a little white over the top to tone it down a bit. Next I stamped the background with inks that went with the colour scheme. I used pink and grey Archival Inks. 
Op hetzelfde card stock met Memento Inkt de stempel 3 keer afgedrukt, het meisje en de bloemen ingekleurd met Copic Markers en uitgeknipt wat ik dacht leuk was op het ATC en dat opgeplakt. Hier en daar wat gedoedeld en als laatste woordstickers toegevoegd.

I stamped the stamp three times on white card stock and coloured the girl and one of the flowers three times, cut them out and adhered them onto the ATC's. 
Ik hoop dat ik jullie hiermee inspiratie heb gegeven om eens anders naar je stempels te kijken.

I hope I gave you some inspiration to look differently at your stamps. 
Ik heb de volgende materialen gebruikt:


Amsterdam Acrylverf
PaperArtsy ELB34
Carabelle 60309 - Une femme parmi des fleurs
Leuk dat je er weer was !

Thank you for stopping by today !

Kiss kiss

Hello everyone,

Today I have a postcard to share that I made for the  Visible Image DT

On a pink, yellow and orange gelliprinted background I stamped the mouth and heat embossed it with pink powder. I then used a black and white pen to colour the inside of the mouth and the teeth. 
The X's are also from the set with the lips which is called 'Dare to be different'. 
The sentiment which consists of three kisses was done with the new Alphabet set. 

I have used the following stamps:

Brave wings

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my second inspiration post for Country View Challenges where the theme this month is 'Things with wings'. I made an art journal page :

I didn't take many photos as I got carried away, lol.  
I had the background ready as I always have a stack of gelli prints handy.

The girl ('word girl five' by StarTrish Design)  was coloured with Copic Markers and cut out... I did mask off the words inside her body as I prefer her without. 

I added stamping to the background (PaperArtsy) and some stencilling (Tim Holtz) and that was that. 

I put some washi tape down and added the girl (by Trish Latimer). Lastly I added the sentiment which is a 'small talk' sticker by Tim Holtz. 

That was it ! 

Thank you so much for stopping by today !

Friends forever

Hello everyone,

I have a little art journal to share today. I love these little Kokeshi Dolls by Vera Lane Studio.

Of course I have used a gelli print. I seem to do nothing else these days... getting lazy ! 

The dolls were coloured with Copic Markers, cut out and adhered to the page. I also added some white pen details to them and the page and did some collaging. The words are from another set which is 'Helga's Hedgehog'. This is a very useful set as you always need words and there are lots in this set. 

 There are links to both sets below. 

Thank you for stopping by today.
