Oceans of Joy

Oceans of Joy is what I feel when stamping and coloring the fishes and under the sea animals which are on this card!
First I stamped the Hero Arts "Magical Background" and heat embossed it with WoW white embossing powder. Colored it with Pistachio DistressInk. The fishes are from Simon Says Stamp "Under the sea animals" and Hero Arts "Oceans of Joy" stampsets. After coloring the fishes and animals with Copic Markers I used a "Wink of Stella" shimmerpen to give them a little glimmer and covered them with Glossy Accents. I have seen that at Yana Smakula's blog and liked it so much! 

Here you can see the glossy layer a little bit at the crab.
Thank you for visiting!

At the moment I am experimenting with a Pretty Pink Posh stampset with the name: "Flourishing Fuchsias".
This is stamped on watercolor paper. And colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. The sentiment is by Simon Says Stamp. Added some washitape at the  bottom, and some splatters and sequins.

Frame it

Frame it is the title of this weeks Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp. De designers used Memory Box products. You can read about it here:
And here is my card, and I also used Memory Box products.

I used die cuts to cut out the Bramble Circle, the Butterfly and the Chloe stems from watercolor paper. Thereafter I colored it all with Distress Inks.

The background is made with leaves from a Hero Arts stampset. And the sentiment is also Hero Arts.

The stems are tied together with gold thread.

To add some interest I added gold foil on the Chloe stems, using a decofoil marker and my Mini Minc machine.

I am going to insert it in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
Thank you for coming here again! So much appreciated!

Night and day flowers

Love the peaceful feel of sunday afternoon. Time for crafting! Today I finished some projects I started earlier. This card is one of them.
The "Night and Day flowers" is a stampset by Hero Arts. Stamped and heat embossed in gold and colored with Distress Inks. There is no sentiment on this card. Sometimes I prefer a card without a sentiment. This card goes to someone who just came home from hospital.
Thank you for visiting!

30 Day Coloring Challenge

It is already the 10th of June and so the 10th day of Kathy Racoosin's Coloring Challenge.

I try to color each day for about 10 minutes, as she reccomends. It gives such a joy and satisfaction!
Here I colored in an stencil as I saw saw Yana Smakula doing here:
This is my try:

The stencil is a product of Dutch Doobadoo. The pencils are Faber Castell Polychromos.
This us so fun and easy to do!

Golden Bouquet

Here I like to show you a golden bouquet. It was for my mothers birthday.  I am still working with the Hibiscus Bouquet stampset by Altenew. Love this stampset so much. I think because of the style of the flowers fits my heart. Especially in gold.
Made a background with swirls of Crafty Individuals stamped in gold. The flowers are stamped and heat embossed in gold on vellum. Then colored with Copic Markers at the back side. The sentiment is dutch for  Happy Birthday.
Thank you for visiting!
