Packed

 

Here´s my card for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Luggage & Suitcases". 

Again, I´ve made a card that´s somehow Corona themed as so many of us have had to stay home instead of traveling the world this year. I´m not a big traveller usually, but this year I haven´t left my hometown for one single day, and that´s very unusual even for me ...

This card was made with rubber stamps and Distress Paints.

Pink or Blue?

 

My friend Beth aka Songbirdy came out with two new image kits today called "Pretty in Pink" and "Melancholy Blue", and both are perfect to make some beautifully coloured artwork. My samples have a few other Songbirdy images that go well with the colour schemes.

Caged

 

I´m the host for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge, and I´ve chosen "Caged" as my theme.

In times of Corona, these might be your feelings while being quarantined or social distancing, staying at home. But feelings are very individual.

You might feel caged in a partnership you´re unhappy with or would like to leave. Freedom is something that everyone has to define for her-/himself - being free as a bird will always stay a dream.

And some of us even feel the need of rules to feel safe. What is your nest may feel like a cage for somebody else. Some people even feel caged within their own body. How about you? Do you feel caged right now or have you ever experienced that feeling?

My rubber stamped postcard above was made with stamps from Visible Image and Coosa Crafts, and the digital sample below was made using images from Mary Bailey (Miles Beyond the Moon) and Mr. Whiskers.

Alice in Wonderland

 

This batch of ATCs was made for a swap in a German ATC group - Alice is always such an inspiring theme to play with.

Skyline - Der Himmel über Berlin

 

My sister is this week´s host at Sunday Postcard Art, and her theme is "Skyline". As she lives in Berlin and I´ve just purchased a lovely Berlin skyline stamp, I decided to use it for my card. A strip of streets covered washi tape, a glossy background and a piece of a book page came together with the title of one of the most fascinating movies about Berlin, "Der Himmel über Berlin" by Wim Wenders (Hollywood used it as a model for "City of Angels" in 1998) and Kennedy´s famous words spoken in Berlin in 1963.

Your Inner Demons

 

This digital collage is called "Evil Spirits", and these aren´t the raven and the snake (who look more like the lady´s company and shelter) but her own inner self. If you´ve ever been in an emotional crisis, you might know how she´s feeling - you don´t need to be mentally ill to experience moments when you really fear your own inner self.

All images used here are from Beth Todd´s new Songbirdy kit "Samhain".
