"Chicken Little" -- Reminder

Hi, friends!

Two weeks are over and we could see lot of your stunning works
but please not stop yet,
you still have another fortnight to create something for this nice challenge!!

To remind the topic on Dream Factory, I made these funny Origami chickens

They are so easy to do and can be nicely filled with goodies! -- Really cute for Easter!
My chickens are made with 25 x 25 cm Design paper and once finished, they measure 12,5 x 12,5 cm
-- you also can use 30 x 30 cm paper and get 15 x 15 cm hens ...(for more goodies) ^^ want to try them yourself? ....look here ;)
!!  But be careful, do not use too thick paper because it tears very easily !!

Happy Origami! ;-)

Hi friends.

Today starts the new challenge at the Dream Factory and we have a funny movie for the next four weeks.
Perhaps you know "Chicken Little", the young chicken who caused widespread panic when he mistook a falling acorn for a piece of the sky.....

I stamped three little chicks with my inked thumb, and 
then I drew the wings, eyes (small punched circles) and beaks with permanent marker. 
A bit Washi and some doodles around the image ...and voilà!

Easter is not very far.....
grab this challenge, make some fun Easter cards and share them with us!

See you soon, Rosi

Hi, all!
Today starts the new monthly challenge at House of Cards and for the next four weeks, 
we'll play with Silhouettes

I couldn't choose just one, so I show you some different ways to use this topic.

My first card is black and white with three die-cut birds sitting on a cord and watching the moon - all that on a reverse embossed card base. It was very simple to do!

For my second card, I used acrylic blocks and Distress ink for the colored squares. 
Once dried, I stamped the image in gray and the sentiment in turquoise.  
.....and for the fun to use one of my new stencils, I added some text using acrylic paint at the left corner.

On the third card, I used watercolor spots on wet paper. 
After drying, I stamped the bird and then I continued the green line under the bird's tail outside the frame.

For my last card, I sponged at first the background with yellow and blue ink. 
Then I stamped the yellow leaves. Next was the branch which I heat embossed in white. 
After that, I stamped the birds at twice to get a darker image (and also some shadow *lol*)
Last I added a few splashes and the sentiment.

As you can see, there are so much possibilities to make silhouettes and I wish you great fun for all those you'll make!

Happy day to all of you!
