Lots of creative blogs are offering us great eye candy, so I decided to dedicate an ATC to… eye candy:
Id like to enter this atc into the following challenges :
- Tree, sun, kid: Dilly Beans
- Script: Darkroom Door
- Music sheet: All night media
Dilly Beans wants us to be inspired by a song. I’ve been listening to the ‘album top 500’ all evening, so plenty of inspiration to go by. This song hasn’t popped up (yet), but that Dilly Beans image just screamed to be picked to illustrate this particular song!
I also would like to enter this atc into the ‘PunkyouGirl challenge: Things with wings‘.
Thanks for popping in!
Daring Cardmakers wants us to be inspired by fairy tales and Stampootique challenges us to create a textured background. Here’s my entry:
I created this textured background with gesso and used wax crayons to apply colour. I rubbed silver ink on the raised parts of the gesso, but unfortunately that’s not very obvious on scan. I really like this Dutch sentiment: in English it reads ‘You don’t need to be a fairy to perform miracles’.
- Girl+sentiment: Inkerbell stamps
- Circles: Stampers Anonymous
- Stars: Lavinia
- Twig: Inkadinkado
Here’s a vintage Christmas card I’d like to enter into the Jingle Belles Vintage Christmas challenge.
- Damask background: Darkroom Door
- Sheet music: Tim Holtz
- Sentiment: Scrolls Work
- Winged Children collage image: Tina 46 Klix
30° Celsius here in Corsica, so Christmas is the last thing on my mind. However, I can show you a Christmas card that fits Crazyhazelnut’s ‘things with wings’ challenge:
I found the image on Tina’s blog.
This fortnight, Artful Times challenge has chosen ‘time’ as a subject for their challenge. Here’s my ATC:
I’ve been reading a number of books, lately, on themes such as happiness, creativity, positive thinking and self development. In ‘100 % positivo’ by Leo Bormans, the author suggests that ‘sitting’ and ‘watching’ are verbs that depict a kind of philosophical attitude and he advises to take the time to both sit and to watch in an active way (of course we’re not talking about being a couch potato and watching television!). Anyway, that’s what inspired me in making this atc, featuring one of my new Artistic Stampers stamps (for I’ve recently won their candy and I couldn’t resist purchasing some extra rubber stamps). The image of the girl was provided by one of the Yahoo-groups I’m a member of.
- Clock: Artistic Stamper
- Roman numbers background: Fusion Art Stamps
- Steampunk elements: Oxford Impressions
Once in a while, I participate in swaps in which we are asked to incorporate an image provided. The following ATC was created for such a swap:
In reality, the background’s rather sparkly, for it was created using Glimmer and Perfect Pearls Mists. Unfortunately, this doesn’t really show on scan. I used a piece of lace as a stencil while I was misting, thus creating a kind of flowery pattern. I find the image really matches the lovely sentiment stamp by Fiskars.
This is my entry for the following challenges:
