Something new

Good day

This is Catch the Bug's Friday freebie and I challenged myself to use some of my new stash that I have received for Christmas and also a new technique. I really can't say whether I did made a successful card in the past with this technique. I received some new chalk ink pads from Versa Magic for Christmas. On this project I used Night Sky, since this was the closest I have to the colour dare. The stencil is from Fab Scrap DS040, that I also received for Christmas. The image was coloured with Prisma Pencils and I only used the 8 colours mentioned, being Black & White plus the above 6 colours.

Challenges I'm joining:
The Sisterhood of Crafters - New Stash
The Outlawz Crash your Stash 15 January - 14 February - Stencils
Color my Heart Color dare #378

So pop by and grab your freebie!

Playing around with bits and pieces

Good day

When I saw this sketch at Felling Sketchy I just had to play. I don't know whether it is the colours of the design that gave me the inspiration. I really used bits and pieces to add to my card. The Die is from Marianne design and I used a Fiskar Tear Edger for the mulberry paper, some rhinestones finished the card.
Challenges I'm joining:
Feeling Sketchy #233
Crafty Catz #490 - Flower Power
The Outlawz Saturday Paper A La Mode - Things that make you happy - Dies, paper & Rhinestones

Thank you and hope you have a lovely Weekend!

Good day

I had a lapse of reason and made this card and when I finally woke up I had to use a different image. But I had such fun creating it, that I decided I'll share it with you nonetheless. Paper is from Miss Empire from Kaisercraft. Coloured the image with my prisma pencils and used some glitter gel. A peel-off sticker sentiment and ribbon was the final touches.

Hope everybody had a wonderful festive season and that 2020 will bring new and exciting times.
