12 Tags of 2015 - May

Paper flowers, tissue paper, die cutting machine, rubber stamp, matte gel, ribbon, distress ink pads, glimmer mist, gold foil, modelling paste, etc, etc.
All mixed together and there was a tag:))

Based on Tim's technique for the month May.

Beginner Flip Book #3 - International

I made another pen pal flip book using green and blue. There are lots of embellishment in this flip book. I also made a lot of the tag using scrap paper.

I used my We r memory makers envelope board for the little grey envelope. I received the pink striped envelope on the left in a swap, so I re-use it here.

This is a journal card I once received from a swapper.

Art journal page with dolls #5 ~ Illusions!

Another art journal page with dolls. I coloured this doll years ago with copic markers. She is a digital image from Penny Blossom. For this art journal page I took it from my collection of coloured images, because dreamy look:) What did I used on this page? Dr. Martin India inks, white gel pen, designer paper, .... , rubber stamp and a multi liner (black).

I coloured the base on watercolour card stock. In the past I cut two seahorses out on this watercolour card stock using the Create a critter cartridge for a project. The first one wasn't a success, because it cut into the card stock, but it did not cut through. So there is a kind of cut or embossing on the watercolour card stock. I used it as a shadow seahorse on this page and drew an eye, dots and stripes on it. For the seahorse that was cut out I used designer paper to back it up, drew an eye and dots to outline it. This way I used this piece of watercolour card stock with cut outs in a very good way.

A very nice imaginary page, isn't it? I love it!
Thank you for stopping by:-)

Handmade card creme and blue

These colours do let me think of a masculine card. That is why this time I wanted the card to be more feminine. After finishing the card I do think I succeeded;)

Art journal page Juli N. Prima doll #9

The theme for this art journal page is romantic. I didn't want to work with the colours red or pink. I went for different colours and still make the page have a romantic look. I don't know if I succeeded; red or pink for romantic themes seems so normal. I know it isn't. Sometimes I really think the page has a romantic look. I love the background especially the bister and the stencil.

Whiff of joy rubber stamp
paper punch ~ heart

Greeting card sender's choice

A quite simple card made with die cuts for the hexagon. The base for the greeting is hand cut and the greeting is a rubber stamp from Rubbernecker. I also added three flower gems as a finishing touch. To make a matching envelope I used an acrylic flower stamp.
