Birds in our garden...

.. but not this type...I have seen these beauties a lot though when still living in Brasil...

I' ve used my round gelly plate again, and distress inks to create the circle. Can you see the stencil in the background too.. it's the TCW596 Orange slices from The Crafter's Workshop. It gives such a subtle feel to it.

A wonderful world of bubbles, bubbllez..

I never get enough of making backgrounds. 

Here I've used Distress inks and a Magenta stencil, and water, and the 'soap bubble' stamp. 

The 'soap bubble' and the  'Juffertje in't Groen" 

(yes, that's what we call it here in the Netherlands) 
are my two new designs for Magenta this time! 

LOVE them!

Bookpaper, stamps, a splash of color...

.. and stitching, makes for hours of fun! 

The background has been made with watercolor crayons and gesso on bookpaper.  I stamped the cat on a piece of bookpaper that was painted with (diluted) gesso first. 
I've added some stitches to the border of the background, it creates a frame around it.  
All the stamps are from Lost Coast designs.  
Those eyes say everything! :)

I am entering this in the challenge on 
1. Lost Coast design - A splash of bright color
3. Vintage Journey - sew special 

I LOVE to just play!

 ... with this golden oldie from Magenta. It's such a beauty!

Till next time!

I dreamt...

 I've made this card of a part of a monoprint, and heat embossed the poem onto it with archival ink and clear embossing powder. 
The poem (Dutch, Inkerbell Stamps) is about our Heavenly Father, helping us during difficult times, in fact He is carrying us!

Spring is in the air!

The background has been made with colored crepe paper. When you wet it when laid on other cardstock, it will color the cardstock very randomly, and also blend the colors. 
I splashed some white with a white acrylic marker - one that doesn't write that well anymore, but still gives splashes. 

I am entering this in the following challenges:

1. IndigoBlu challenge - spring is in the air!

2. Stampotique SDC245 - Circles

3. Spots, Dots and Splashes on TIOT.

4. The Artistic Stamper - collage

5. The Mixed Media Monthly challenge - butterflies ans blooms
