Precious Baby

Hello my friends,
I have been super busy with the first few days at school this week - everything is different and strange and there is a lot of need for reflecting on how things went and adjusting to it for the next day. So I hope you will forgive that I am very, very late publishing the newest PINspirational Challenge inspiration card... This is the super cute inspiration picture:

I obviously went with the theme, but also thought I would like to use a grey card base and, as the baby clothes are kind of in the focus, I used a onesie as my focus element as well. But as you can see I felt that a baby card needed a bit more colour, so I decided to go with greens and blues as well. 

I hope you are going to join us any am looking forward to seeing your lovely projects. Happy crafting and take care, yours Maike

Aloha friends

Heya my dear crafty friends!
Great to see you today ;o) Can you believe it is August already??? July somehow just flew by in a blink of an eye... Well, the beginning of a new month always means that there is a new challenge at Challenge Up Your Life. This time it is "Faraway Contries" and at first I was really stuck, but then I looked through my stash and found the Hoola-girl by MFT and thought that she would be just perfect. So here she is:

Making this card was bitter-sweet, because travelling is not an option for me right now with Covid19 going on and I really miss it. However, I really like the Hawaiian feel of the card, the sand and the palm-trees and it made me miss the beach a tiny bit less. ;o) I started this card by stamping the palm trees using the masking technique and next I added the "sand" using Distress Ink. After drawing in the sandy hill I cut away everything that wasn't needed and was left with a beautiful beach scene. 

I added the cloud patterned paper behind it and also matted it with a rainbow coloured paper to match the skirt of my hoola-girl. I had coloured her with Copic markers (for her skin tone I used E17, E13 and E11) and when it came to making the decision about the colour of her skirt I didn't want to use green, yellow or brown (which for me would have been the obvious choices) I could deice on just one colour and went with all of them ;o) For her hair I used markers from the E40ies and also a Y21 to give the hair a yellowish undertone. I hope you are going to join us and create a layout or card or whatever that reminds you of a "Faraway Contry" that you have visited or would like to visit ;o) Stay safe and happy crafting everyone ;o)) Hugs, Maike

Happy crafting everyone ;o)))
