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!

Basteltraum's Challenge #64: Flowers / Mother's day

Hello, crafty friends!

I hope you are enjoying a great spring weekend as I do! Temperatures are getting so much warmer, you can do activities outside and nature is getting so colorful again! I think spring is my favorite time of the year :-))

And because Mother's day is coming soon, the theme of the newest Bastel-Traum challenge is all about Flowers and/or Mother's Day!

I grabbed an older set by Altenew called "Magnolias for her" and stamped it with a super light grey ink - you can barely see it when it's stamped. But it's enough for working with the "no-line" coloring technique - as it says - at the end you won't see any stamped lines anymore. I used my Schmincke Horadam watercolors with a wet-on-wet technique. In case you're looking for new, high quality watercolors, I really can recommend the HORADAM. They are incredibly pigmented, lightfast and sooo easy to blend!

I hope you will play along this month - you can go very colorful and festive! But for now we should enjoy the nice weather outside, don't you think?

Thank you for stopping by!
