Frohe Ostern

Hi everyone!
Time for a little reminder about the current Dream Factory challenge.
Our film for this month is

A fun movie that we connect with the upcoming Easter. 
So we want to see Easter bunnies and other Easter animals in your projects.

Lots of fussy cutting and sponging on this card! The only die cuts are the fence and the top of the grass, everything else you see on this card I cut out with scissors.✂️
The meadow and sky I sponged with Lemon Lime Twist (Stampin'Up) and Mermaid Lagoon (Distress Oxide), using a mask for the clouds.
For the dark green strokes, I used the Tranquil Tide ink pad from Stampin'Up. Some of them got white flowers (gel pen). The chick, eggs and flowers I colored with alcohol ink markers. The sentiment is from Crealies.

Katzelkraft - Frohe Ostern

Hi everyone, 
I'm back with a new Katzelkraft project. 
The Easter card season has started...

It seems that bunny is wondering why the Easter eggs are hanging on the tree....

I started by making the sun with my homemade stencil and Fossilized Amber (Distress Oxide).  I then stamped the grass, bunny, branche, flowers and eggs. Stamped the bunny a second time on a piece of background paper from my homemade stash. I colored some areas with alcohol ink markers. Cut it out and added it to the card. Stamped some more grass. Colored the Easter eggs and flowers with markers.
To the left and right of the sun I added a few blue spots to suggest the sky. Taped two strips of washi tape to the bottom edge. Stamped the sentiment and colored it with markers. I trimmed the finished card and added it to a white card base.

Hope you like it. - See you next Tuesday with a new Katzelkraft inspiration! ;)

Merry Christmas - Mixed Media

Hi everyone!
Let's go for a new 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge. 
This week we want you to use this technique:

Mixed Media

First, I made the background, having already chosen the majestic stag (Katzelkraft) as my main subject.
The panel for the background is from my stash. It was already painted with blue acrylic paint. I sponged a few areas with Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot (Distress Oxide). Stenciled some leaves. Made stars with texture paste. Added washi tape and a few black splatters. Stamped text on the lower part.
I stamped the stag on the finished panel. Placed the newsprint. Stamped the stag a second time. Placed the torn corrugated cardstock and stamped the stag a third time. Colored it with alcohol ink markers.
I attached the corrugated cardstock and the piece of newsprint to the panel with foam tape, slipping crumpled raffia tape between the two.
The sentiment from Stampi'Up is heat embossed and also attached with foam tape.

Katzelkraft - Happy Spring

Hi everyone, I'm back with a new Katzelkraft project. 
I decided to make a spring/Easter ATC.

The meadow is already full of flowers and Bunny is beginning to hide Easter eggs...

I did some stenciling in the background. I stamped the bunny (masked the crayon he is originally holding), the flowers, the numbers and the dots on the ATC. I stamped the bunny, flowers and eggs a second time on bristol paper. Colored them with alcohol ink markers, cut them out and adhered everything to the ATC. The grass is made from torn washi tape strips. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.

Hope you like it. - See you next Tuesday with a new Katzelkraft inspiration! ;)

Be Merry

Hi everyone!
Let's go for a new challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown
The theme of this week is

Snowman and Deer

I figured these cute fellows don't need a lot of bells and whistles. So this time it has become a CAS card. 
I stamped the image, masked it and sponged the background with Mermaid Lagoon (Distress Oxide). Removed the mask and watercolored the image. After drying I splattered the card with white ink to create snowflakes. The sentiment I stamped three times to get a bold black print.

Have Fun!

Looney Tunes - Easter

Hi everyone!
Today starts a new challenge at the Dream Factory
The movie for this month is

Looney Tunes
This month it's all about Easter bunnies and other Easter animals, 
with a funny movie as inspiration.

Hard to believe, but in three weeks we'll be going on another Easter egg hunt!!

At first glance, I was inspired by the colors of the poster (see below). I created the background with a stencil and a mask that I made myself. I sponged the upper part with Spiced Marmalade, Barn Door (Distress ink) and Fossilized Amber, and the lower part with Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot (Distress Oxide). Then I splashed the panel with a few drops of water to get the light spots.
The quirky bunny, which I modified a bit, is from Katzelkraft (the eggs are hand-drawn). The flowers are from Clearly Besotted. I colored them with alcohol ink markers and cut them out. Die cut two areas of grass from black cardstock and inked them with Mowed Lawn (Distress Oxide). Embossed the sentiment and cut it in single words
Finally, I stuck all the little things to the panel. Hope you like it. 

Have Fun!!
