....some more horses!

Hello everyone!
Just a quick reminder and some more horses for our current challenge at the Dream Factory.

This month's movie is 

The Horse Whisperer

I did two ATCs with pictures I found on the net.

Mane, ears, tail and the pattern on his butt are colored with very light pink and the background with light blue watercolor.
I added some leaves in the corners and a very small sentiment. 

This horse is colored with brown and yellow watercolor - for the pattern on his head I used orange felt-tip pen.
For the background I used again blue watercolor and then added splashes of black ink.

I also added Wink of Stella but it's so hard to photograph can not see it! 😱
On the white horse, I used it on the mane and the tail and on the other horse only for the orange pattern.

You have two whole weeks left to create something - we look forward to your creations!

See you soon!

Christmas Magic

Hello everyone!
Today I have a little fairy for you!

My little niece offered me the full range of Twinmarkers for Christmas - what a great gift! 😘
...and this is my very first image colored with these alcohol markers! 
I added Wink of Stella on wings, stars and Christmas balls and then 
I embossed the area around the fairy - just with the pressure of my fingers.
For a first attempt it is not so bad .... what do you think?

Thank you for visiting!
See you soon...

If you love horses...

....this challenge is for you!

Hello everyone!
We have a new challenge at the Dream Factory! - This month's movie is

The Horse Whisperer
Der PferdeflĂŒsterer
L'Homme qui murmurait Ă  l'oreille des chevaux

Some keywords: Horses, Love, Country Life, Friendship.

I love horses but as strange as it may seem, I have no stamp for this topic! 
....hope you are better off than me! 😉
This time, I did not have the patience, nor the time to draw myself and I printed this image that I found on Pinterest.
(See the link at the bottom of this page) 
As usual, my printer did not want to print correctly - I had a pink horse ha ha ha 
...and I had to retrace the image by hand!
I purposely left the horse without color and 
I just added green paper and dry-embossed white paper to give some contrast and texture.

Thanks for stopping by
See ya...

A spiky thing!

Hello everyone!
Today I show you cactus number two - sorry, it took me a little longer than expected.
Finally here he is, the big brother of this one!

This time I worked with felt, it's really a very nice and sweet material!
First I drew a cactus on a sheet to have a pattern. I cut it and then cut in half to get two quarters of cactus pattern. I cut each quarter twice out of felt and sewed them together, leaving the seam exposed. I stuffed the cactus starting with the "arms" and ending with the trunk. Then I cut some flowers that I fixed with round-headed pins. For the needles, I used simple pins.

The "potting soil" for the cactus is also made from felt. 
For this, I cut two rings out of brown felt that I left open on one side, so that I could put it around the cactus once sewn and stuffed. The pot is made with cardstock and embellished with washi tape.
I really enjoyed doing it! ... it changes a bit of what I usually do!

I hope you like it
 ....and promised, I will not bother you with other spiky things! 😂

Mixed Medias

.... and Happy New Year to you all!

I hope you had a great New Year's Eve, because as soon as the New Year begins we already have a first challenge for you at House of Cards!

Mixed Medias and/or Stunning colors
this is what we want on your cards this month!
(See our inspiration photo at the bottom)

The year begins with glitter! - My unicorn has some in the mane but impossible to see it on the picture - too bad!
This month it's Mixed Media so I used several things ....and my new Scrap Plaisir stamps!
The rainbow is watercolor, the mane is colored with colored pencils and then Wink of Stella. I also added some silver stars and splashed some black ink on the card ....and after sticking the sentiment ( Life is better with glitter!) and the unicorn I added three more sequins!
