Rainbow worms


The new Less is More challenge is: in a row.

For my one layer card I stamped a row of rainbow colored worms. I've used Card Deco and Memento inks.

The bird is from the same Moda Scrap set (Funny Birdy) and so is the sentiment. I've stamped those with Versafine ink.

then I masked off the lower portion and applied Distress ink. Whatever was left on my green inkblending tool, looks like Mowed Lawn, but don't know.

Clearly Besotted Month #14 Best Balloons, with video

The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is: make your own background.
Showcasing Brutus Monroe, but I only ave one stampset , so I used Clearly Besotted.
It just so happens to fit the challenge.
I've made a stencil/mask with a hexagon die and inkblended my background with Distress inks in an ombre like style so the background is not all flat like.

The bees are from Clearly Besotted (best balloons) and Simon Says Stamp sells this brand.
I mounted the bees with foamtape. 
The Sentiment is from Clearly Besotted also (says is all again) and I stamped it with Versafine ink.
I stamped the bees with Gina K amalgam ink and colored them with alcohol markers, had the Scan N cut cut them out.

Create a Smile Challenge

 I'm honoured to report that I was asked to be a Design Team member for the Create A smile Challenge blog, for the next  6 months.

For  the first challenge: a  moodboard, I've used the Surfer Pingu ,a freebie you can find on the challenge blog to download.

I have chosen colours, and stripes and the dots (although blue) from the moodboard.

I've coloured the image with alcohol markers and a white paint pen. the bubbles or seafoam were made by punching little circles in different sizes from different blue cardstock and silver glitter for some shine.

for the card I diecut a big round circle from blue card and then placed the image on top,

then arranged all the bubbles either flush or with foamtape.

I hope you will play along with us you could win a €25 giftcard to the shop.

Clearly Besotted Month #11 Galaxy Express, with video

The Simon Says StampMonday Challenge is: on a roll.
For my card I've used the Clearly Besotted locomotive set (full steam ahead) and made a moving card.
I started with splattering silver acrylic paint onto dark navy card., background and also on the moving parts.
For my card to move round in circles, I diecut 2 rings, a thicker ring and alid tocover up the inner bits.
Just foamtape on the inside of the rings will work as my mechanism.
I have stamped the images with Gina K amalgam ink and colored them with Copic markers. Cut them out with the Scan N Cut.
Heat embossed the sentiment from the set with Wow Silver regular embossing powder.

I glued all the train bits to the thicker ring. Pcaced the more narrow rings on the cardbase

first,then the thicker ring and then the lid.
