Basteltraum's Challenge #66 Hobby / Leisure

Hello, my crafty friends!

A new challenge on Basteltraum's blog is starting again and this time it's a real pleasure to play along - theme is "hobby/leisure" So you could get crafty about our awesome hobby! That's what I did at least, hehe :-))

So I thought I will create  a card for a crafty friend with some crafting bunnies on it (those adorable bunnies are a part of a digital stamp set btw). I colored everything with my copic markers and added some texture with colored pencils, a brown Stabilo pen and a white gelly roll pen. The sentiment stripe is also colored with a copic marker (BG11). As my crafty friend really likes teal hues, I decided to stamp the ink splatter in a matching color and sponged some of the same ink on the right corner for a little bit more contrast. The shaker window contains a mix of glitter, sequins and star confettis. To finish off my design, I applied some Nuvo drops (clear)  onto the white part on the card to kinda fill the empty space. I really like how it turned out with all the teal hues :-)

I hope you got inspired and will play along with us this month!

Happy crafting!

Bastel-Traum's Challenge #65 Rainbow / Fantasy

Hello lovelies

Today is a new challenge starting over at Bastel-Traum's blog with the theme rainbow and/or fantasy... Wohoo! Get aaaaall of your pretty colors out and start creating something colorful!!!

My inspiration card is made with an utterly adorable digial stamp created by Isabel Cristina - in case you fell in love with it too - it is a free digi that you can grab on her blog HERE :-)

I colored the image with my copic markers and the background is made with liquid watercolor ink "Ecoline" by Talens . First, I gave the watercolor paper a good wash with plain water and then dripped the color with the included pipette onto the wet paper. It's SO zen to watch the color spreading over the surface, love this process! :-) I repeated that process several times and dried the layers in between with my heat tool. Then I cut the watercolor paper with a scalopped rectangle die by Mama Elephant which is included in this set.

I adhered the mousie with some foam tape to stand even more out and finished off my design with some sparkly rhinestones by Lucy's little Things . Looks cute, right?? I think this card will make anyones day a bit brighter :-))

Thank you for stopping by - hopefully you got inspired and I will see you playing along!
