A Colour Chock!?

April's journal is a bit of a colour chock, you might need sun glasses if you look at it too long! The winter was so long and I indulged in lovely warm spring colours.

I used:
The bunny stamp was a gift
Hero Arts Leaves, Memento Bamboo Leaves ink
Distress inks, TH alphabet die
White and black Sakura pens

(I might add challenges later)

Have a great week!

Cool Cat


Hiya! Can you guess that I'm a cat lover? This one is from Michael Strong. It was stamped onto a paper that had been spritzed with a Pearl Perfect Pearl solution and coloured while wet with Lyra Aquacolours, quite cool effect, huh?!

Awakening or Change is Good


Ok, I know, it's May, but I'm a bit behind with the Journal pages and this is a crooked one! No time for flattening here. So what did happen in March? Suddenly I realised that my body is ageing....I'm a bit behind there too! I now need glasses and I hit the changes women go through. No news for anyone really and as my hairdresser told me, change is good! And then she gave me a new look! Everything did suddenly feel much better! Life is good.

I would like to enter:
Simply Create Too: Anything Goes
Crafty Catz Challenge: Anything Goes


What did I use?
Gesso
Prima and Tim Holtz stamps
Distress and Archival inks
Creative Expressions mask
Cosmic Shimmer Mist
Sizzix die
Perfect Pearls

Hope you'll have a wonderful weekend with good changes!

Love
Maarit

Come Fly With Me


We have a great sketch at Cupcake Craft Challenges this week. it's very versatile and easy to work with. We're being sponsored by My Creative Classroom who are offering one lucky winner a seat on any class.

I've always admired the vintage style cards, but often struggle with them. I found inspiration from the Craft Stamper magazine and cased a tag. I quite like the result.

Tools: Cut'n Dry pen nibs, Dymo text machine, Cuttlebug tag die
Paper: MME Bella Bella paper

Have a great week!

Warm hugs
