This week the Wednesday Stampers ask for our favourite colouring techniques - here´s mine: I love to combine stamp pads and Polychromos pencils to make backgrounds and to colour my stamped images. The pencils make it possible to draw, write and give shadows, and the combination with stamp pads gives the cards a painted feeling.

"Eyes" is this week´s Wednesday Stampers´ theme. I have many eyes stamps but haven´t had time to make a card until today. This one reflects the idea of changing your perspective in a very simple way.

At the Movies

This week´s Wednesday Stampers´ theme is "At the Movies". I love movies but don´t like pics of actors and films, and most of my favourite movies will be quite unknown. But as I have this lovely Charlie Chaplin stamp I decided to show my version of his "City Lights" (Lichter der Großstadt).

Something white

What does White mean to me? Definitely a colour I don´t chose for myself because it makes it difficult to recognize me when I´m standing in front of a white wall ... It stands for innocence, freshness, naivety - no, it´s not my colour at all. But it´s this week´s Wednesday Stampers´ theme, and this Lost Coast stamp looks lovely when it´s combined with some white accessories I think.

Faux Postage

I don´t have much time for art this weekend, so here´s a Faux Postage ATC I´ve made yesterday. I´ve used perforated faux postage paper rusted by my friend Ute - thanks Ute for sending it to me!

The irresistible K ...

Feeling blue?

Two more ATCs for the Green and Blue swap - spirals and feeling blue.

Green and blue

Journal "Paris"

My entry in a Stefanie´s Journal about Paris combines two preferences of mine, for gloomy songs and for birds. The French word for sparrow is moineau or piaf, so Edith was the Piaf de Paris.

Springtime coming

Hey, it´s March now - does that mean that springtime is coming?

Two Hostess ATCs

Not much time to be creative last week, but at least I´ve made these two Extra ATCs for Keron, the Hostess of the By the Sea swap.
