I love art

Here’s another ATC featuring a heart. This one’s for Stampotique Designers Challenge # 84 ‘Love theme’.



I coloured the heat embossed Tim Holtz heart using wax crayons and added a bit of dimension with Glossy Accents.



Soartful Challenges provided us with a beautiful image of a dragonfly. I’m not entirely sure whether they prefer us to use the image or whether we can enter anything that fits the theme. Anyway, I chose the latter option, I hope that’s ok.

This dragonfly was also created for an  ”insect swap” over at the Yahoo-group “Creatief met stempels”. Again, there’s some gold bling on the wings, which doesn’t show on the picture.

Two colours

Here’s an ATC that uses two of my favourite colours: blue and purple for  The Stamp Man “take two colours”  challenge.

This dragonfly already found a new home, for it was created for an  “insect swap” over at the Yahoo-group “Creatief met stempels”.  As always, the scan doesn’t do it much justice:  for there’s some bling involved. I’ve added purple Perfect Pearls to the wings and then I covered them using Glossy Accents.

Stamped collage butterfly

How I love things with wings! Made another ATC that’s meant to fly to the UK in order to be a part of The Stamp Man ATC swap.

I also would like to enter it to the collage stamping challenge set by the wonderfully talented Ink Stained Roni.

For the colours I sought inspiration in the Just For Fun colour scheme. JFF suggests one of my favourite colour combos: yellow, orange and brown.  I added a bit of gold embossing too, for I love combining gold with orange and brown.

I used “glossy accents” to make the butterfly pop. Here’s another view that might show that a little bit better (sorry for the reflecting light).

Purple and green dragonfly

Here’s my last minute entry for the Play Date Café purple, lila and lime colour challenge.  I didn’t even have time to “assemble” my ATC properly, for the glossy accents on the wings of my dragonfly hasn’t completely dried yet…

I think this purple and green dragonfly is going to make a journey to the UK, so as to join The Stamp Man ATC swap, theme “wings”. And it will probably get the company of some other winged creatures, that might be less sweet than the one above…
