Basteltraum's Challenge #103: Rainbow


Hello crafty friends

Here's to another round of a challenge hosted by Bastel-Traum!

This theme is one of my favorites... Rainbows!!! Is there anything better than a rainbow themed card?! Nope, lol :-)

So I used a ton of different Lawn Fawn products to create this colorful card. First, I scribbled a few Karin Brush Markers onto a piece of watercolor cardstock and spritzed it with water. The colors immediately began to blur. I used some tissue paper and a heat gun to stop the colors from running... then you need to be a bit patient until the paper has completely dried. Then I cut out the big sentiment "big hugs" from this panel. I used a chalk marker to enhance the letters a bit more.

The background panel is brushed with distress oxide and after that I used a star stencil over it and brushed again some more distress oxide from the same color.

The bottom and top part are also dicuts from Lawnfawn and colored with distress oxides, too.

I used some colored pencils to color in this adorable image, it's the cutest, don't you think?!

Down below you will find the links to the products I used.

So I hope you will play along in this fun and happy challenge!

Thank you for hanging out with me - and happy crafting!

Basteltraum's Challenge #102: Animals


Hello crafty friends

I am back with another inspirational card for the new challenge over at bastel-traum's blog and it is all about animals this time.

I went with a stamp by colorado craft company called "Lots of Love" and I am so in love with Anita Jeram's images! I am pretty sure you all know her children's books that took the world by storm. I am so happy I discovered this company that creates stamps of her adorable images!

I decided to color this image with the no-line technique. For this, you stamp the image in a very light hue and color then without creating harsh outlines. I really love the soft look you can achieve with this technique.

Then I decided to stamp the sentiment with embossing ink and emboss it with superfine white embossing powder (this one is perfect for tiny/small detailed images or sentiments). Then I brushed some pigment ink (it's an old ink pad by Mama Elephant; unfortunately it's discontinued... but any light blue pigment ink will work!) over the sky and voilà - there you have an adorable animal card :-)

So I hope you will share your creation with us over at bastel-traum's blog!

Happy crafting!
