C4C382, Let's have coffee!


Happy Saturday! Challenge time over at the CRAZIES. Yesterday was National Tea Day.....the challenge is to make something with tea or coffee.....I wanted to play more with my Tim Holtz stamps and the watercolour look with the flowers so I made the challenge work for me, lol.
I did my flowers in the pots, I don't have a stamp that says anything coffee so I put a sketch pen in my Cameo and printed my own sentiment!
                                        Hope  you like it! Till next time, Anja

C4C381, sketch challenge!


Third Saturday of the month!! Love the sketch challenge over at the CRAZIES
When I have a sketch to follow, it always helps me and the card comes together a lot quicker.
For this one, I played with the stamps that were on my desk already, the Tim Holtz flowers.
Created a background with distress paints and stamped the flowers in Versafine black, I added some 
wink of Stella for bling. On the big background I used a stencil with distress ink and the sentiment is from MFT. Some Ranger enamel dots and voila.....the card was done!
                                     Happy Easter! Till next time, Anja

C4C380, birds!


Saturday means it is challenge time over at the CRAZIES. This week it is ZOO LOVER'S DAY.....the great time about being on this design team is, that you can stretch the challenges, lol. That is what I did.....I used chickadees on my card, pretty sure they are in the ZOO too, most likely because they are every where, lol. But I really wanted to play with this set from Local Rubber King, I stamped the birds with distress markers and brushed on a glaze, when that was dry the fun begun....
I stamped, inked,  sprayed, splattered, used inkagold, enamel embossing powder.....and so on.
It was a lot of fun!
                                                     Happy Crafting, Anja

C4C379, rainbow challenge!


Happy Saturday! The challenge this week over at the CRAZIES it to use a rainbow or a variety of colours on your card, because April 3 is FIND A RAINBOW DAY!
I started out with a white piece of Neenah and made a rainbow with Tim Holtz distress inks, I then splattered some water spetters on it and stamped the Penny Black flower.
The placement of the sentiment is not my favourite, I did go over it with a sparkle black marker  so IRL it sparkles, lol.
                                 Hope you check out the challenge! Till next time, Anja

C4C375, World Book Day!


Happy Saturday! Hope Mr. Blogger do as he says he does, lol, I am away on a trip to Holland to visit family. This week was World Book Day and we are asked to use something from a book on your card over at the CRAZIES. I had coloured the flowers earlier, they are from the Hello Sunshine set from Altenew and decided to use a bible verse. This verse is such a great reminder for me.
Flowers were coloured with Derwent inktense pencils and have a layer of shiny medium over them.
                                         Hope you like it! Till next time, Anja

C4C374, use your words!


Use your words! Make your sentiment the focal point of your card, that is the challenge today over at the CRAZIES. Recently I bought some YUPO paper, for this card I used some alcohol inks on it, what a game changer! After it dried, the flowers were stamped along the bottom, they are from Altenew, hello sunshine. The sentiment is from the same set, stamped in black, matted on silver, as a final touch, I added different colours of Nuvo drops. 
                                  Hope you like it! Till next time, Anja

C4C368, welcome to the neighbourhood!


Welcome to this challenge of the CRAZIES! Create something for a NEW HOME, anything for in the house or for a new house or  with something that makes you think of a new home.
I used an old stamp from Clear Dollar stamsp and watercoloured the house and cut a circle diecut, the trees are from Inkadinkado. I stamped with distress inks and  blended it out with a wet brush.
Not sure about the spelling on the card...must be American?  Who knows, English is my second language so I could be so wrong.
