Adult coloring postcard #42

I used prisma colour pencils on this adult colouring postcard. I also coloured the background using a yellow colour pencil just to make the postcard pop up more;)

Stamped art journal page #1

This is like a tribute to rubber stamping;) I created a 5x7" art journal page using mostly rubber, clear or acrylic stamp images. First I added a lot of water on aquarel paper. This quality aquarel paper is thin and I had to be careful for the paper not to tear. I did have two weak places which where damaged because of the water. A very small part on the left corner (under) which was torn off and in the middle of the right side quite a torn.

After drying this background (it was quite wet) I added several images of rubber stamps to the back ground using 'not quite navy' (dark blue) and archival black. Following that I added 'not quite navy' ink. I finished colouring the flowers and the girl image with luminarte h2o. This part added more colour and certainly glimmer to the girl, the flowers and the whole art journal page. It was fun, fun, fun playing with the different rubber stamps and inks.

For Bauke

It is the first time that I tried to cut out the cow on the create a critter cartridge. I didn't want to use only designer paper somehow on this cow. As you can see I did a good job with the choice I made. Some cows have brown dots, don't they:)) The last piece of the cow is torn, but I think it is good as it is, so we see a piece of the under layer (grey).

By the way, su stampin' pad early espresso is a very nice colour;))

Add words

It is to add element of words to the ATC. It can be any theme. It just has to have more than one word added to it. The words can be stamped, cut from a book or magazine or even a die cut.

I choose to stamp words using a clear stamp. I first randomly added acrylic paints to the card board and then I did some doodling. I finished the ATC adding the cut out swirl, the feather, the sentiment and ink embossing the border.

Put a definition on it

I created this postcard and included a definition somewhere in the design. I used my printer and printed the definition. The definition means a lot to me. The definition:

en•vi•ron•ment (ĕn-vīˈrən-mənt, -vīˈərn-)

n.             The combination of external physical
conditions that affect and influence the growth,
development, and survival of organisms.

First I painted orange acrylic paint over the gesso, leaving some areas white (gesso). Then I dabbed acrylic paints with a crushed piece of plastic bag over the orange layer. I recycled a note card by cutting the birds out of the card. Finally I doodles here and there on the postcard.

A cool cat for Isaï

It is always a joy to work with the create a critter cartridge. The size can be tricky sometimes, especially if I didn't used the cartridge for a while. I've made a note in the handbook to remind me of the sizes of the images good for cards. So here is a cute cat for Joshua.

What is funny is that I thought this image was a tiger...LOL
