Butterfly Rainbow Series Post Card

Put an orange butterfly on the postcard.

Julie Nutting Prima Doll #6 - Surprise!

Another Julie Nutting Prima Doll art journal page with the theme "Surprise!". I received this doll from a swapper years ago. And it was time to use her. I used Copic markers to colour her. She has two presents in her hand. Did you received them or is she going to give these presents to someone? Only she knows:D

Mailbox-theme with a note

A greeting card with a mailbox on it. This card brings a smile on my face:)
The mailbox and the sentiment is from the Create a critter cartridge.

Art journal pages with dolls #1 ~ Surpise!

An attempt to use my stamps more often. So I set up a couple of swaps in which we use any doll rubber or acrylic stamp. I use a rubber stamp from The Greeting Farm. I coloured her a very long time ago. For the base I used designer pager (pink) and on the other half of the page I used pink acrylic paint dabber and used a Rubbernecker background rubber stamp and stamped on the pink acrylic paint. All over the page you'll see spots, stripes and a kind of cheese cloth, all stamped with Rubbernecker rubber stamps.

She is lucky with all surprises falling down. I do hope she can catch all of them:))

Yellow and white

And when I have the colours, I wonder about the sketch:) The colours are given, so no headache about that. I've decided to add a little bit of grey to the card. Now I wondered about the tools: what to use? Die cuts! Of course, the next question was: which of them? And I went on and on and this card is the result.

Card sketch #1

When you have a sketch, I wonder aboiut the colours:). I picked up this beautiful designer block and made a choice. My partner likes the colour red, so this designer block gave me a lot of options. I fell for the stripes. This digital image is from the artist Yampuff on deviantart. I coloured some images a long time ago, so it is easy to choose from my collection of coloured images.
For the group Card sharks.
