Pink Paris

Pink is definitely not my favourite colour, but this week´s Wednesday Stampers´ theme is "Think Pink", so this lady is dreaming of a pink Paris.

Love ATCs

As some periodical readers of my blog may know, I HATE HEARTS as a design. But Valentine´s Day is approaching, and I´ve been crazy enough to sign up for a Love themed swap ... what a challenge for a person like me ...

Poe´s Raven

Another ATC for my future Crows & Ravens swap.

Mona Madness again

I´ve made eight ATCs with exactly this week´s Wednesday Stampers´ theme "Mona Madness" for a swap in October, six of them stamped, so just click on my posts Mona Madness and Hostess Monas in the October blog archives if you want to see them all . Here´s one of the Hostess ATCs again.

Journal Cover

This is the cover for my journal themed "Sentimental Journey". It will contain all sorts of journeys into the past.

My Black Friend

Another ATC for my future swap about ravens and crows.

My To-do-list is quite long, so I´m on a roll making ATCs which have nothing to do with deadlines ...

Saturday artpARTy

This is my first ATC for the Collage Cats´ artpARTy. I love the idea of visiting the group´s Saturday night art folder instead of visiting a museum ... Maybe this lady is a bit too rusty to win the tour, but her bike isn´t.

Another Heart and Bird ATC

My second ATC for this challenge shows a bird billing with a masked man, but we don´t know if it will be a love story.

Dreaming of Birds

An ATC for a challenge themed "Heart + Bird".

Where time is made

Time is one of my favourite themes, but it hasn´t been easy to find a stamp that hasn´t already been used by one of the other Wednesday Stampers this week ... So here´s a rare one from Peddler´s Pack, combined with stamps from Unicorn and my favourite alphabet shining through.

Curious Children

Two more Lock & Key ATCs.

Another Tears ATC

This is an ATC I couldn´t scan because of the "teardrops". I´ve borrowed a camera and cut out the image with Photoshop - excuse my faults, I´m still learning ... But it´s three times better than the scan. The words are part of a poem by Rilke.


Two locks, but only one key - this boy decided to wait patiently. But as you can see, time goes on and the door has already become rusty ...

This is one of two ATCs with the theme "tears", titled "From my tears sprout forth", illustrating a piece of music by Robert Schumann.

Faux Postage Venere

My second faux postage entry for the Wednesday Stampers is completely stamped with Cherry Pie stamps.

Faux Postage from Cologne

My faux postage for the Wednesday Stampers is a picture of Cologne in 1945, combined with a stamp of an old town plan.

Another one with lock and key - I like the ghostly look of the girl in front of this mysterious coloured door as if the whole scene took place in another world.

More Locks & Keys

... two more for that swap ...

Lock & Key

Here are my first three ATCs for a swap themed "Under Lock & Key". A lock and a key has to be on each card which makes it a bit difficult.

Vintage Children complete

My ATCs for the Vintage Children Swap are complete now:

Quite colourful again, this ATC is for the Wednesday Stampers shapes theme. One of my favourite shapes lately have been wings - I love how they sometimes alter the character of an image and how many different forms there are, each with another character.

Ah! Colour again!

It´s fantastic to use colours again after all this white. This is a hostess ATC I´ve made today.

The Three Graces

Yesterday I´ve made a front page ATC for my favourite Yahoo group "Paper Traders" where we have a weekly rotation of front page art. Maybe you recognize two of the ATCs the graces hold, they are in this blog.

Colour progress

Isn´t it a progress? This ATC is not half as white as most of my latest cards, LOL ...

Broken Wings

Another Vintage Child.

Vintage Children

Here are some ATCs for a swap themed "Vintage Children" - it´s nice to have some colour on my cards again!

Never ending story

Here are two more white ATCs as I need a bunch of them for three different swaps now - this seems to be the theme of the season!
