Paris in the rain

Inspired by this gorgeous Paris photo I created my card today.

I used my prisma colors pencils to create this soft pastel colored flowers. I wanted to create the contrast from the picture and that's why I used Kraft cardstock. The effect was quite delicate and more subtle than the one on the photo, but still quite beautiful.

Doodle Background

Today I have this fun card I created for the International Women's Day.

I used a cute little doodle-y stamp that I embossed in copper and that created my background. A die cut sentiment and I was done. Pretty simple (if we're not counting the hour after to clean the embossing powder from all over my house) and quite cute , if I might say :)
Happy Tuesday!

Spring colors

Hello again. 
Spring is around the corner and I can't wait for it.

So today I'm playing along with a few challenges and spring colors. The sketch idea came from the Fusion Challenge and the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. I flipped a few elements to the right side, just to make it mine. I die cut the beautiful Altenew rose and colored it with pencils. The delicate aqua mesh background is made with dry wall mesh used as a stencil.

Happy International Women's Day tomorrow!

Welcome little star

I'm starting the week with this cute little card I made
 for my friends soon to be new nephew.

The Card Concept gals asked for Lime and Aqua and what better colors to use for baby boy-simply perfect. I guess you can categorize it as a clean and layered or kids whimsical-chick card :) Whatever the style is I'm pretty happy with the result.
I started with rubbing the moon image on a cardstock (even though the moon did not wanted to imprint at I followed the sketch from My Favorite Things blog and I used a die cut to frame my image. A cluster of buttons to finish it and that's that.

Pretty in Pink

Hello again. 
Inspired by this award season I wanted to thank all the crafting community for their endless support, encouragement and inspiration with this card.

The delicate pink colors over at the Fusion challenge made me pull out my watercolors and start ...well, coloring. I wanted to create something svelte and refine so I can participate in the challenge that Dani Angelova threw at us over at the Картичкофурии blog.

I stamped the background with peony stamp , colored them with watercolors and some pencils and added a die cut thanks on the top.

Not too shabby for Tuesday
