Haai ik vin je stoer

Een leuke kaart voor Valentijns dag of gewoon zomaar.

Ik heb hiervoor  de haai van Avery Elle (Shark Hugs) gebruikt en gekleurd met mijn markers.
Voor de tekst ballon de set Water praatjes van Carlijn Design en de tekst is ook van Carlijn Design (in het water)

Voor de achtergrond heb ik Distress Oxide aangebracht (Tumbled glass en Broken china) en daarna een bubbel stencil erover gelegd en met Mermaid lagoon, lucht bubbles gemaakt, heel subtiel op de achtergrond.

Voor het koraal heb ik een beetje oxide aangebracht op zalm kleurig linnen karton, ik weet niet welke, want ik heb gebruikt wat er op  mijn inkblending sponsje zat, maar ik schat zo op een Worn Lipstick, ik heb heel willekeurig wat schaduw plekken aangebracht en daarna de stans van Marianne Design (Cr1046) uitgestanst en op  de kaat geplakt. Dat werkt super met wat dubbelzijdige tape achter het linnenkarton ( Marianne Design Lr0014).
de Haai heb ik met foamtape een beetje naar voren geplaatst. en als extra bubbels accent wat steentjes. In de Avery Elle set zit ook een hart stempel, leuk maar wellicht  weer een stuk minder stoer? wel ideaal voor Valentijn's dag.

For the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Besotted with our pets, showcasing Clearly Besotted Stamps.

I have a few Clearly Besotted stamps, but somehow, dragons, flamingos, hippos, (polar) bears, reindeers don't seem to make the pets cut.I do have one with a cat and dog, but I didn't fancy it hehe.
Instead I 've used the Simon Says Stamp/Mama Elephant Stamptember collaboration for the images and he Clearly Besotted set called Laugh out loud Christmas for the sentiment.

I colored the images with Spectrum Noir Triblend makers and the background is Distress Oxides with white Dylusions paint
I've mounted the images with foamtape and stuck them on top of my cardbase.

Toadally Snowy

The AAA Cards Challenge, on Facebook is: Icy.
The Male Room Challenge is: it's snowing.

For my card I've used the Whimsy Stamps Toadally Snowy and stamped it on marker paper and had the Scan N Cut cut it,it didn't recognize the little bits around the big snowflake, so I meant to restamp it on the carbase, but I forgot...It's Ok , it's still cute how the toad tries to catch the snowflakes on his tongue, I did that as a child too ;-)

The sentiment is from CAS-ual Fridays (Must love Snowflakes). the banner is Oxides (Tumbled glass and Mermaid Lagoon) and I splattered it with White Dylusions Spray paint.

Mounted the toad with foamtape and adhered it on top.

AAA Cards #157 with video

This Fortnight the challenge is : One Layer and Polar Animals
Our sponsor is The Ink Road,  but as I have none I've used the Lili of the Valley called Teddy With Penguin. 
I coloured Teddy as a Polar Bear to fit my chosen theme.
Tomorrow January 20th is Penquin awareness day and on February 27th it's International Polar Bear day.

I've stamped my images onto watercolor card with Extreme black ink from My Favorite Things and colored it with Ecoline from Talens.

Now Strictly it's not a one layer as I'm adhereing my watercolour card on a cardbase. But as it's not matted and has no
apparent layers, it was  Ok with our Design Team.

For more information on the AAA Cards Challenge, or to play along, see this.

I shall enter this in to the Less is More Challenge: one layer + off centre too.

Lots of canaries

The less is more this fortnight is about being off centre on a one layer card.

So for my card I stamped a group of birds from Moda Scrap (funny birdie) with tones of yellow and orange, trying to make it an ombre effect from one bird to the other....you know instead of a rainbow hehe...
The sentiment is from the same set and I added a couple of matching enamel dots as confetti.

Be my Valentine

Yes it's that time of the year again, although in the Netherlands Easter eggs have already appeared, Valentine things have not made it to the local supermarket yet.

I made the card for the House Mouse Challenge: Anything goes + Food and Drink, and I thought the mice eating (my) chocolates was fitting.

It the Stampendous Set called Heartfelt Chocolates (HMCP105), I stamped it with a water proof ink,  the sentiment as well , that is from Clearly Besotted (Brushed sentiments).

I colored the image with fluid watercolors. I'm trying to do more loose water coloring, but the control freak in me won't allow me ;-)

Anyway mounted the watercolor panel with foamtape to a cardbase.
