On the Beach

Hello everyone!
Sorry to have let you wait so long! Hubby and me were for a few weeks on vacation in Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.
But now everyday life has caught me up again and I am starting with a reminder for the current challenge at the Dream Factory.

This month's  movie is...

The Beach 

You can let off steam with everything about beach, sea, friendship, travel and Thailand!

I tore sandpaper in a few strips and used it to make the beach.
I stamped the palm, the sun, the text, some shells and the grass on the card. The surfboards are stamped and fussy cut. Sky and sea are sponged with Tempting Turquoise from Stampin'Up. I added some hatched lines with a white gel pen to the sea. I colored with felt-tip pens and some inks from Stampin'up.

I hope I have inspired you and it makes you want to join in!
See you soon ;)

The best things in life are sweet

Hello everyone!
We have a new challenge at House of Cards and this time we would like to see cards with Popsicles or Food and/or Colors! (see the inspiration photo below)
You can be inspired just by the image, or just by the colors ...

 ... or, like me, combine both!

I stamped the background with different fruits and watercolored them with felt-tip pens. - I also added the color dots with that pens. I watercolored (always with my felt-tip pens) the borders of a slightly wider cardstock than the one for the background and glued them both on the card.
I drawed a popsicle, watercolored it with felt-tip pens, traced the black lines and cut it out with scissors.
I die cut a circle from white cardstock and stamped the sentiment, then I stuck the popsicle and stamped once again the small part that was covered by the lolly. To finish, I stuck the circle on the card and added some pearl pen dots to the chilly thing.

Inspired? - We are looking forward to your icy, fruity, colorful creations!
Have a cool day ;)
