C4C 345, sketch challenge!


Sketch challenge over at the CRAZIES. It makes it easier to design a card, just follow the sketch.
One of my many crafting plans is to use my designer paper, lol, I have a whole bunch of the mini pads.....such nice papers....but hardly use them. I don't think I ever have enough time to use it all up...
But I did for the sketch, the flower is Penny black,  coloured with pencils and I put some crystal effect on top, sentiment from Just Rite.
                                           Hope you like it! Till next time, Anja

Day 7, a little bit of colouring....


Day 7 of the 30 day color challenge, you can find it HERE.
I missed yesterday...and had plans to post early today, well, that did not happen but I did colour a little bit. The flower is part of a Magnolia stamp, coloured with pencils, and cut out. The background is watercolour paper with some yellow brusho's. When it was still a bit wet, I stamped the Altenew leaves with forest moss distress ink, and because the paper was still wet, you get a bit of the watercolour look. The sentiment was cut with the Silhouette.
                                       Hope you like it! Till next time, Anja

Day 5, pencils on black cardstock....


Happy Saturday! Some simple colouring today for the COLOR CHALLENGE, I have used pencils on black cardstock with some crystal effects on top. The derwent coloursoft pencils go on very easy on the black but the picture is not showing that all so well....
If you are looking for the CRAZIES card.....I posted that here on my blog a couple days ago as I used it for this challenge... I am trying to stay on top on all the things I want to do, lol, but sometimes Real Life messes that up, you can all probably relate to that! Oh well, such is life!
                                    Hope you get some crafty time! Till next time, Anja

Color burst and brusho background for Day 2!


Day 2 of the colour challenge, you can find it HERE, I had fun playing with color burst and brusho powders. The flower is a Impression Obsession stamp and the sentiment from Stampendous, and see I messed up my black Viva dots....
I used the Misti to stamp the flower and versafine black, so nice that you can ink up different times till you like it and always in the same spot!!
The frame is from Nellie Snellen. Hope you like it! 
                                       Till next time, Anja

C4C343, lighthouses!


Happy Saturday! It's challlenge time over at the CRAZIES, this time you are asked to use a light house, you can find all the details HERE
It took me a while to colour this card, with derwent colorsoft pencils, the stamp is from Flourishes, but I made the scenery bigger by adding some hills and the rocks (stampscape) on the front, I also added some lines to make more water. At last I added the reeds and the seagull on the pole.
Sentiment is from Impression . A friend retired this week, so I gave the card to him.
                                             Hope you like it, Anja
