Dreaming of warmer days



It's snowing again so I'm dreaming of warmer days by the seaside. I'm joining the super talented people at Paint Party Friday with this journal page. I used a matte medium, acrylic paints, Aqua Marker pen, Derwent pastel pens, Stickles and a Stamplorations stencil.

We're enjoying a bank holiday, lots of time for dinners and just hanging around at home. Happy Easter for those of you who celebrate!

Love and hugs

Birthday cupcake


I needed a Birthday card so my oldest stamp came to good use, the yummy cupcake from Panduro. It's coloured with Pro Markers and a White Posca pen was used for highlights. The image was masked to stamp the lovely Paisley patterned Penny Black image with Distress ink. The text stamps are Vilda Stamps and says "Party, hurray, celebrate" in Swedish. Some Stickles and green dots with a metallic Sakura were added too. I almost forgot to tell about the score lines, easily added with a score board, but to get them on right side of the card was somehow challenging :)

Challenges:
Simply Less Is More: Curve (the Paisly pattern)
CASology: Icing



Can you spot the Boo Boo I tried to hide?!

Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated.

Love and hugs
