Warme Grüße (Warm greetings - Walrus)

Heya everyone!
I hope you are enjoying a lovely, lazy, sunny, funny Sunday! Today I am back with an inspiration card for the newest Papercraft Challenges theme. This time we would like to see "Selfmade Backgrounds" in your projects. The DT have so many differents examples to share, you really should risk a peek ;o) This is my piece:

I created a wintery background using the Tambai watercolours and after it had dried completely I embossed the snow flakes over top. For that I used a stencil by Create A Smile and dabbed the Versamark ink pad right over it. Worked like a charm!

I die cut the paper with a scalloped die and also die cut a piece of white felt to represent the snowy ground. The cute walrus is a digi by our kind sponsor Dr. Digis and you could win 2 digis from them if you participate in our challenge. This one is a really great image to colour, because it consists of many large areas and also a walrus had smooth looking skin, so there is no need to create fluffiness which for me makes it a lot easier to colour ;o) I hope you are going to join in the fun and that I will get to see your creation in our gallery! Have a wonderful Sunday and happy crafting,
yours Maike

Hey Gnomie!

Hello everyone ;o)
We have started a new challenge at Challenge Up Your Life on Sunday, but I am a little late posting my card. This time we have a "Colour Challenge" for you and this is our inspiration picture:

I really like the colours, don't you? I think you could easily create a Christmas card with the colour palette but as you can see the image had me inspired as well ;o) Recently I got the gnome themed stamp set by Hello Bluebird and I thought it would be perfect for this challenge. 

I masked the gnome before stamping the first mushroom and also had to mask two of those before getting the result I wanted. The tiny ladybug was far enough away, so I didn't have to mask it. In hindsight I widhed I would have remembered to take the ink off the stamp towards the bottom, so that it would look like they were standing in the grass and not on it if you know what I mean. However, it seems I can never remember this early enough... Is there something you tend to always forget when you are crafting? And time doesn't count ;o)

I hope you are going to join us for this November challenge at Challenge Up Your Life! I would love to see your creation in our gallery! Until then, have a wonderful time and happy crafting, yours Maike ;o)
