Hello everyone,

Today it is really hot here ! I think it is about 31 degrees or something like that. It is always the same isn't it; we go from winter straight into summer and back again.
I am very comfortable in my craft room and I fancied playing in the VivaLasVegaStamps! monthly challenge. So I made a postcard:

I painted the card with Dylusions paint in the colours Vibrant Turquoise, Cut Grass and I used White Linen to stencil the flowers on it. I scribbled around the flowers, spattered some white and black ink, inked the edges and stamped & clear embossed the bees. The girl was stamped separately, coloured with Copics, cut out and clear embossed. I adhered her to the card. Lastly I adhered one of Tim Holtz' chitchat stickers. 

I used the following stamps:

This card is based on this mood board. The words were :
DOTSletters and alphas, grungeinsects, moths, butterflies, spray paint, drips, splatters, paintdistressed, scribbles, blackwhite, limegreenblueturquoise, and more!

Thank you for stopping by ! 


  1. You're really on a roll! Wonderful postcard. I like the scribbly bits around the flowers. I've never thought of embossing over a colored image like that. Will have to try that.

  2. I love what the clear embossing does to the colored images!! Great postcard Corrie!

  3. Love the colors and the composition. The flies look so real!

  4. Die zchtergrond is al heel mooi, maar met de motten en het elfje erop ziet het er super uit! Fijn weekend verder!

  5. Love your postcard, Corrie - the bees and winged girl really speak to me! And the colours, of course, are a knockout!!!!

  6. Really like your postcard Corrie, unusual stamps and I love your handwriting xx

  7. Crikey if flies were that big I'd never leave the house and think of the size of the spiders needed to eat them!!
    Fab postcard Corrie :) xx

  8. A great combination of stamps and colors, Corrie. I love that you have branched out in your stamp collections. Nicely done here!

  9. WOW, fabulous, love the white flowers xxx
