Spots and stripes in Blue and Green!

This weeks' challenge at Paper Take Weekly is Spots and stripes! I cheated by using a paper from Daisyd's, already with spots and stripes! And since the paper is blue and greenish, I also entered the card in this weeks challenge at A spoonful of sugar! The girl, a stamp from Bildmalarna in Sweden, they have arrived, Yipee! They are so sweet. Painted of course with my Copics. Happy Birthday is also a stamp from them!

Home sweet home!

This week challenge at Stamptacular is Charmed - I am sure! which means use a charm on your entry. So I painted Magnolias house and hanged on a little key, small butterflies greats you to your new house! Or something like that! The checked paper is attached to the back so you only open the blue paper, will do the inside later!

And I was the lucky one to win a great price for this card at Stamptacular! Hurrah!

Combo challenge!

After my pink adventure I wanted (needed) to make a more manly card for a friend. I took advantage of two challenges one at Colour Create - colour Orange, Green and Brown and at Friday Sketchers who has (surprise) a sketch! I used papers from My Minds Eye and Basic Grey. With different embossing techniques and distress ink I made the clocks. From Tim Holtz I used game spinners and the sentence stamp, the clock stamp comes from Heidi Swap!

Just Magnolia and Penny Black!

NOT my favourite colours together, could have something to do with that I have only on child, a teenager boy:-) but anyway challenges are challenges. This time Just Magnolias second one. I thought I made it girlish, Tilda sitting on a blanket with furry pink edges! Yes why not?

This tag is for Penny Black challenge no 46 - Anything Goes. PB stamp of course coloured with Copics, tag distressed with Distress Ink, and dot stamp from Hero arts.

This is a card I did for a DT call. Silly me, misread the instruction (great DT, he)! I was suppose to pick one theme not use all tree in one go. But I did, so here is a girl daydreaming surrounded of pink flowers!In the middle of the flowers I have put a little "silver" flower with a pearl! An Elisabeth Bell designed stamp coloured with Copic pens!

Papertake Weekly Challenge

Wanted to try my new watercolours from China, so I coloured a Sarah Kay stamp. It's of course a huge difference between Copics' more intense colurs and the more soft watercolours. But it's nice with different textures. This challenge was a nice sketch, see it at Papertake Weekly Challenge!
