Naughty or Nice?

 Hello everyone, 

I have made my first Christmas card of the year.... Mind you when I am typing this it is stil not even mid October...  Of course it is an AALL & Create project because it is Tuesday ! 


Here's how:


I started with colouring the elf and the presents. I added some white pen to make them look a little different from each other.


I then made the background; I used Distress Ink this time and I just smooshed the card into a puddle of Peeled Paint and water until I was happy. I did dry in between. I then stamped the background with the same ink and some grey and black. 


Next, some modelling paste with this stencil. 


Washi tape for the Elf to stand on.


I wonder if he/she is naughty or nice?

The power of coffee

 Hello everyone, 

The second project for this months Country View Challenges theme of 'tags' is, you guessed it, another tag! lol.


Here's how:


Fist I cut a tag from watercolour paper. I then dunked it in Oxide inks, Crackling Campfire and Salvaged Patina until I was happy. Then added stencilling with white paint. 


Did some background stamping with the same Oxides and a black Versafine Clair. 


I chose this animal (is he an animal?) as a focal. He is by Katzelkraft. 


I coloured him with watercolour markers. 


After he dried I cut him out, added washi tape to the tag and sat him on the top of it. I added a snarky Tim Holtz sticker as a sentiment. 




We hope you play along with us ! Just make sure to read the RULES before you do! 

I'll see you again soon for a brand-new challenge !

This week at Vera Lane Studio

 Hello everyone, 

Happy Thursday! 

For today's Vera Lane Studio project I have made a card. I have used the newly released set 'Santa's favourite' and it is very cute. 


I printed and coloured the images and then cut them out. The background is part of a gelli print I had in my stash, I just added some stamping to it using Janet's stamp for AALL & Create.
I glued everything on the card panel, doodled around the edges and then glued the panel on a white card base. Lastly I added some shading under the elf and the dog using a graphite pencil.

You'll find this cute elf HERE

Sending Smiles

 Hello everyone, 

Today's project is for AALL & Create! I grabbed back to an older stamp simply because I like it so much. I combined it with some stencilling and stamping and made a card:


Here's how:


First I painted the card white using acrylic paint and a brayer. I then stencilled part of this flower motif on the card using 2 shades of pink and 2 shades of green acrylic paint. 


After toning it down with white paint, I stamped the chicken on the card and on a separate piece of watercolour card stock. 


 Next, I stamped the card randomly. I used similar colours to the flowers and leaves and added grey and black. 


I added a piece of washi tape for the chicken to stand on. 


 Next I coloured the chicken using watercolour markers and coloured pencils. 


The sentiment. 


Here is the card put together. I like it !

This week at Vera Lane Studio

 Hello everyone, 

Happy Thursday!

For today's project I have made a postcard. As some of you might know Janet has been visiting London and Paris recently and brought out some digistamps to celebrate. I did London last week so today it is Paris' turn. I have never been to Paris; I wonder if it is nice?


Isn't he cute? 
I made the background by cutting a piece of card stock to 4 x 6 making it a postcard. I then searched my stash for blue and red pieces of leftover paper. I found some! Yay! The blue has been colours with what looks like Distress ink and there  is some embossing over the top. The red is a gelliprint I made with Copic Refills and a feather stencil. I added some stamping, a French postage stamp, some washi tape by Janet from AALL & Create with French words and the sentiment was made with a tape embosser. The little guy was printed, coloured and cut out and adhered onto the card. I added a post mark stamp to the postage stamp. 
You'll find this cute little guy together with a cute girl and some accessories HERE
