Paper Artsy - Blue and ochre with found objects

FUN theme this time at Paper Artsy! The theme and colors spoke to me, also my newest stencil and the new stamps from Lin Brown, ELB33
I always tend to come back to nature, and had to use that element in my project too! 
So five elements that got me inspired. 

Theme, color, stamps, a stencil and nature! 

LOOK what I came up with, just a sneak peek!! 
 It took me a whole day to get this together... with lots of finds of years and years from nature..
seashells, the tiniest tiny ones (thinking of sitting in hot sand with my daughter Karlien when she was still a girlie) ...
and a worn leaf...
also some rusted keys..
and to frame it all I used some branches from a pear tree. 

GO see the post on the Paper Artsy blog for the whole project and more photographs .. and also description of the different finds.

COLORING with Nuance

Because of the different color particles in the Nuance powders, you get different shades of a color when using them to color an image. 
AND.. what do you think of splattering with them? 
(The background has been sponged with distress inks) .

Playing with Minx shimmering inks - no 3 !

I am not finished playing with the MINX shimmering inks yet!

(I'm on the Art Anthology blog today) 

Today I chose to play with MINX inks in combination with a custom made ink pad.
 That's really so much fun.. you MUST give it a try!

Please have a look at the Snapguide at the end of this post for step-by-steps of the 2 techniques in this post. The supplies used also get mentioned there. 


Technique ONE is using the inks on the pad for stamping.

Changing the above card with just a touch of 2 stencils.


Technique TWO is finishing up all that beautiful ink on your pad.

Using these backgrounds for one-of-a-kind cards.
