Wooden box with monsters by MFT

Hello everybody, let me show you my latest make, a wooden box with the MFT monsters (More Monsters). I like to paint, decoupage or stamp on wooden boxes, but this technique that I used here a little different and not that perfect yet. I have to work on it :-)

I painted the wooden top white (DecoArt White Wash), sanded, then painted again. I stamped the monsters on the surface then embossed with Ranger embossing powders (Sky Blue, Green, Red Geranium, Black).

The bottom was painted with DecoArt Winter Blue.

It's not perfect but it's a fun box and perfect for a little boy!

ATC with PaperArtsy rabbit - choose to be happy

This rabbit needs more positive affirmations, so here's my second card. 

The making process was the same like here but at this card I used Bahama Blue and Desert Turquoise colours from the DecoArt.

The back of the card looks like this:

With this ATC I would like to join the PaperArtsy ATCs challenge.

ATC with rabbit - affirmation card

Here is my second project, my second affirmation card for the ATC challenge at the PaperArtsy blog. 

This rabbit suffers from the lack of self-confidence so she needs a positive affirmation :-) Do you know a rabbit like this?

Here are some pictures of the process:

The Zinski rabbit was stamped on watercolour paper and was coloured with Zig Clean and Ranger Distress markers.

Here is the answer to the question: Can I?

A perfect affirmation card (LOL)!

Ballerina greeting card - Beautiful Girl by MFT

I made this card for the MFT Sketch Challenge 368. I have found a background paper with beautiful colour and texture that I made a long time ago and obviously put it aside and left it there.

I think the Beautiful Girl stamp set was the best choice for this background. The girl and the flowers were coloured with Copic Sketch markers.

Here is the background I have found :-)

Mosaic Valentine's Day card

Hello Everyone, Here I am with the second inspirational post for the January challenge of the Country View Challenges: Anything goes. 

This is a Valentine's Day card because that special day will be soon here, so it's time to prepare.  

I used a piece of mixed media paper (300g) and my Sizzix Bigz Die, Mosaic by Tim Holtz (661194) and I ran it through the Sizzix Machine. 

Then I gave a rectangle shape for the paper with the windows using a Sizzix Framelits Rectangle Die.

Then I cut out another rectangle (the same size) but without the windows. I painted it with Whispering Turquoise then I smeared the card with Blue Chiffon.

Unfortunately, I wasn't satisfied with the result, so I spritzed with water a little dab from the same colours and I tapped the paints onto the surface here and there with a sponge.

After drying I spattered with white paint the blue card.

I tapped white paint onto the mosaic card. 

The next step was to spatter with brown paint (Burnt Umber) both cards.

I inked the edges with Gathered Twigs and since the blue card was too clean for me, I smeared some watered Vintage Photo ink onto the surface.

Here are some pics of the hearts:

Here you can see that I painted with two different pink paints.

I inked the edges of the hearts.

With a brush, I put a layer of medium onto the hearts and sprinkled with Clear Rock Candy Stickles. I let them dry.

The text was printed by me.

The leftovers from these sugar candy hearts were used for this Silly Monsters card.

If you have a project which fits our Anything goes challenge, please feel free to join in because a randomly chosen entrant can win a £20 voucher!

Thanks for visiting!!! Happy crafting!!!

Birthday card with a Viking and a dragon

Now, this is supposed to be a scene from the movie, How to train your dragon (LOL). When Stoick the Viking chief is ready to fight with a dragon but unfortunately it seems too cute to fight with. And anyway, Hiccup wouldn't agree too.

For this card, I used the following MFT stamps and dies:

MFT, BB Viking

MFT Town Bear stamp set

MFT BB, Magical Dragons stamp set

MFT More Essentials Sentiments stamp set

MFT Die-Namics, A2 Stitched Rectangles, STAX 1

MFT Die-Namics, Slanted Sentiments Strips (but I cut off the edges)

I coloured my images with Zig Clean and Ranger Distress markers.

Valentine's Day card with monsters

Now this card is obviously not a traditional Valentine's Day card! But when I saw Tim's silly monsters and the text of the Art Impressions I knew immediately that it would be a perfect match.

The sarcastic green (Twisted Citron) monster says this to the enthusiastic turquoise (Peacock Feathers) monster.

With my card, I would like to join the Simon Say Stamp challenge: Winter Blues
