Anything goes with some aquamarkers and cute flora stamps

Today is Sunday in the Netherlands. A lot of time to make a card. I finally wanted to get started with my aquamarkers. I bought them but have hardly used them yet!

First I stamped the flowers with Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder from Lawnfawn. (Stamps are from Aliexpress).
Then I picked out a number of aqua markers from Craft Sensations. Beforehand I made a color scheme that I thought would be nice, first on a sketch sheet .
The markers are very clear in color, so I had to be very careful when coloring. Some leaves only needed a small dot of color!
After each “dot” of color, I immediately spread the colors with a little brush with a little water.
To bring a little more life into the brewery, I sprinkled a few splashes of watercolor on the card with a wet brush.
And finally I stamped a text with Ranger Distress Archival INK (dusty concord). And very carefully with regular distress ink (tea dye) a very light border around the card.
Finally I mounted the card on a black piece of cardstock and then stuck everything on a green card.

I really think that the color combination has become beautiful.

Have a great sunday, and thanks so much for looking xxx

Christmas gnome on gray and red

I suffer from something that most people will probably suffer from. And I think at this time of the year, it is a bit of a problem for all people in the world … You will now wonder what those problems are. Well, “time flies!” Is it finally Friday, you blink twice and it is Monday again! And then you find out that it’s almost noon and that you haven’t done anything yet. Well, almost nothing then.

I must not stray too much today! So, here is my card. I have mixed various brands and materials. I used older stuff and some newer stuff. And of course a stamp from a Christmas Gnome! I’m really in love with these men: I like them so much. Speaking for myself: this has become such a card that you actually don’t want to send! Sin of my work. LOL.

I used a sketch from a magazine. I also used my new die-cuts from StudioLight (the snowflakes). I colored the stamp with my alcohol markers. The design paper comes from Do crafts and Craftsensations. That of Do Crafts is really very old! According to me, mmm maybe 2012 or so!

Nice that you have come to take a look at my blog. Thank you in advance for that and I hope you will come again soon! Bye xxx
