Happy Halloween!

I just love the colors and the different images for Halloween, so I just had to make some cards.
First I made this one, totally inspired by Debby Hughes/Lime Doodle Design.
I stamped some circles with stamps from Joy! Craft, and embossed them with white embossing powder. Then I used several layers of watercolors. The black center of the eyes are made with enamel accent.
Some more stamping in black, and some of them are embossed. Finally splatters and sequins.

The next one is inpired from many cards I've seen lately, with backgrounds made with Distress Ink.
I used grey and purple together, after masking a circle. The treeline and the small bats are stamps from Tim Holtz. And the adorable huge bat is a stamp I've had laying around for years. Finally I found the perfect card for it.
It doesn't show very well, but I also highlighted some parts with a glitter pen from Wink of Stella.

My daughters have been out 'trick or treat'ing tonight, in an awful weather! So now they have changed into dry clothes, and are waiting for me to make them cocoa....
Have a nice Halloween!

Shabby chic.....

I made this card for my american cousins 60th birthday this summer.
The papers are all from Maja Design. I really like to make personalized cards, so I tried to incorporate things my cousin likes.
She loves bikerides and travelling, works on a cruiseship, and loves everything Norwegian.
The metal embellishments are from Prima. I used dies from Kort&Godt to make the tags, and another die from Tim Holtz to make the doilie..
Finally some splatters of white gesso and gold mist.

Have a nice week-end!

Crazy Dogs

I just love the Crazy Dogs from Tim Holtz, and here are two cards I made recently.
I saw a tutorial at Simonsaysstampblog, showing how to color images with Distress Crayons. And I just had to try it right away.
I stamped the images on Distress Watercolor Cardstock, and colored it with Distress Crayons + water. When it was totally dry, I created the background with Distress Inks.
The sentiment is a stamp from Dylusions, and I also used some metal stars from Finnabair.

This was so much fun, so I just had to make another one.
I used the same techniques as the previous one.
The sentiment is from Crazy Talk, and I embossed it with black embossing powder.

Distress Crayons come in so many colors now, so I'm planning some very colorful crazy birds next....
