Magnolia skepp o´hoy

Hi everyone!
What do you think of my sailer card?

I've had this amazing Maja design paper for years and I thought it was well overdue to put them to good use and how could you resist this adorable Tilda stamp:) As usual I coloured her with my copic markers. I used the E-series and B9-serie, there are some traces of the C01 and C03 in there as well.

The smaller roses are coloured with LSG whale watch blue and the larger one with afternoon delight demin.I've also tucked some buttons from my stash, I just cut the back thing of with my pliers. In the mix of flowers and die cuts I've also tucked some vintage berries, leaving the frosted ones out. I made the post card myself with postage stamps from Magnolia.

Art journaling for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

I'm doing something unusual for my usual Tuesday post at The Rubber Buggy - art journaling!

I've seen so many beautiful samples of art journaling and I've been trying to make some of my own, but I've still got a lot to learn. I thought I'd show you a spread though. It was very easy to put this one together and I like it because I think I got a lot from using just a few products - distress ink and Graphic 45 french country stamp #3.

First I distressed the entire page using peeled paint, tumbled glass, tattered rose and victorian velvet. I then pencilled my sentiment and filled it with a copic marker (black100). Then I stamped all over the pages in different colours. I hope you can tell that the post card stamp is used randomly partial in black soot, the bumble bee in mustard seed and the flour de lie in blue. If you look closely you'll notice that I made a border at the bottom using the branches in pine needle green. I've also stamped the "sign" stamp in peeled paint and tattered rose, sometimes right on top of each other so it looks like a shadow.

Well, I think I will be pleased eventually with the page, it grows on me. But like I said I still have a lot to learn:)

Products used from the store:
Tim Holtz distress ink
Graphic 45 French country stamp set #3
Copic marker B100

Sketch challenge at Anyone for Anya

Hi everyone!

Anyone for Anya has a new fun sketch challenge for you all this week.
Here is my take with TGF Alice bean.

The paper is from Prima divine 6x6 paperpad. I've used the Spellbinders label 20 to die cut the background for my titel which is simple stories snap stickers. I then decorated the rest with enamel dots - love those babies, they will be my new addiction for sure - LOL!

The sweet eyelet lace with ribbon in celadon is from MB's Treasurista and it match the divine collection perfectly.

I hope you join, can't wait to see your creations!
Thanks for visiting:)

Back to school challenge at The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

Please join in our new challenge at The Rubber Buggy - this month it's back to school!!!

I've stamped the sentiment twice, one in black and one in yellow using colorbox graphic 45 dye ink to create a shadow and a depth. I've also used venetian lace ink to stamp the post card from French country #3 on the yellow background behind the picture.

The rulers are from Prima Engraver paper, but as it's back to school theme I just had to put them in there:) To balance everything that's happening on the left side of the card I used a memory box die cut circle on my picture.

Products used from the Store:
Saturated canary rubber stamp TALKIE
Copic markers
Magnolia chandilier carland yellow
WOC 15mm open roses (coloured with LSG Rudolf's red nose red, but you can find several colours in the store as well)

Graphic 45

Hi everyone!

New post for The Rubber Buggy, I here present my latest creation with G45

I sprayed a WOC flower with LSG Van Dyke Sepia and cocoa bean copper.  I'm so pleased with the result I got. It matches the paper perfectly. To bling it up I used stickles, copper and it's absoloutely gorgeous. The other WOC flowers are sprayed with LSG clam bake beige and grab a guy gold.

To achieve the inverse scalloped edge I used the MFT die-namic picket fence, only the top.

If I haven't told you already, I'm a  hoarder and my closet is filled to the brim. I therefore caved in and used one of my treasured prima blings.
