CRAFT-alnica and an Elephant!

Uauuuu....I guess I'm in wild animals mood! :-) First the lion and now elephant.

This card was so easy to do and it came together piece by piece as I went along....

First I got the digi image and the main paper pad (the one with the elephants) and from then on...easy peasey! A bit of ribbon folded in a special way, two more paper pads, some distress ink here and there and of course instead of flowers (so that the card can be for a boy) stones for a mosaic and a few pearls that lead to a possible future message...
Of course I had to follow the sketch that CRAFT-alnica, the new and the first Slovene challenge blog, set.
I'm so happy that the ladies decided to started this blog so good luck and a lot of creativity ladies! You got my support!

I'm entering this card for a few other challenges:
  1. CRAFT-alnica (skecth)
  2. The Cute Card Thursday (dimensions)
  3. The color throwdown (three colours)
  4. The pixie cottage (circles)
  5. My time to craft challenge (make it manly!).

The Lion - The King

Well, nothing with the phototransfers...I guess I don't have the right printer. :-( But I'll keep trying.

In the meantime, I have been a bussy bee with the Lion...
I just had to do something with this digi image I had of a Lion. The colours of course would be the colours of green, yellow, orange.... and then the card just sprung! With the few paw stamps and the caro stamp on the side......even my dear thought it is sweet! :-)
This will be a card for a brave young boy, who is not afraid of this "mean" Lion! :-)

Later I saw that it fits to a lot of challenges on the net so I'm entering this card for:

* Friday sketchers (sketch).....that I followed
* Stamp something (distress)....I used distressed inks all over the card
* Cupcake craft challenge (Going green)...there is a lot of splashes of green :-)

keep creating!

aaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrr (aLion's roar :-)...it means "by by")

Photo Transfers

I guess I got a bit bored with cardmaking, so I tried something different, something new for me.... PHOTO TRANSFERS.
I have seen some beautiful ones and I thought I really would like that....

Lets get to work!

First some research....internet, blogs and youtube watching....and then I hit the shop. OK, I got Fimo, I got beautiful picture of angel which I thought I will transfer easily....according to internet posts.

Well I'm on my fourth try ( I also tried with Das material) and I still didn't get it....but I'll try again until I get it! :-)

I haven't work with Fimo for a long time and I guess I'll do something with it in the meantime...while I figure it out what am I doing wrong.

I'll keep you posted! :-)

Besides working...well trying to work.... with fimo, I have done some decorations...read colourfull Easter eggs...

and I got an order to do a gift for a girl...a beaded bracelet. Of course a beautiful bracelet can't go away without beautiful wooden box...pics next time.

Bunnies, eggs, flowers...

The Easter is getting closer and it's time to make some Easter cards for my family and friends.

This bunny is so cute that I just had to use it...it's digital and I coloured it with my penciles + waterbrush. Also I used some greenish/flowerish cardstock, an old piece of ribbon and a purple coaster...yes you read correctly, a paper coaster.

But I think it's so cute...

Easter meets Just Magnolia Challenge

This week I discovered a new "thing"...Faber Castel colour pencils...I just love it! I can then smooth the coloured piece with water and it looks great!

This Tilda is coloured with the Faber Castellcolour pencils and this card is for the Just magnolia challenge No. 45. They wanted the tent card with a Magnolia image. I did Easter motive, with easter eggs, butterflies, chicken and of courseTilda. I decorated the inside of the card with rafia.

Simon Says ... Mother's Day/ Girly

Have you check out this week's Simon Says challenge? It's all about girls incl. moms. :-)

I think this card is as girly it can gets...pink, gliter, ribbon...just cute!

Cards for men Challenge

At the Cards for men blog they have a challenge with three demands:
1. it has to be a card for a man or a boy
2. paper piecing is the theme
3. it has to be a new card.

The prize for this challenge is 5 digi images from The Stamping Boutique.
The challenge is open until midnight GMT on the 14th March 2010.
I keep my fingers crossed. :-)

Since we are all in our family mad about bikes, I thought this would be the perfect theme for a card. I haven't done any paper piecing so tutorials on the blog were helpful, although I later remembered that I haven't done the shadings with distress inks....next time. :-) Anyhow I like it!

Magnolia is laying on a feather... :-)
