Another hat

My second WS entry for this week is quite different, but concerning the stamp it´s the same: I have no idea which company has produced it - any suggestions?

Hats

No, you´re not in another Wednesday Stampers´ Egg week! But as I don´t have many hat stamps, I thought that this nest would be a fashionable hat.
Can anyone tell me from which company the woman stamp is from? I´ve bought it via Ebay and have no idea who made it ...

Take a rest


Just found this chair in a magazine advertisement and couldn´t wait to use it in a little collage - isn´t it exactly what this boy had been looking for on his journey?

Grungy Sunday




I still need some more ATCs for the Grunge swap. It´s fun to see the story behind each image and highlight a few details.

Another grungy ATC

Another ATC for a Grunge themed swap.

Home


On my first day home I´ve made these ATCs for a swap themed "Home", using my new bought House stamp and chipboard letters.

Polka Dots

My card for this week´s Wednesday Stampers´ challenge "Polka Dots". Stamps by "Der bessere Eindruck" and Stampington.

Back home

... from Munich, and I´ve missed my stamps and paints! So here are a few ATCs I´ve made immediately after coming home ...

CherryPie ATCs

Some ATCs for an ongoing CherryPie Swap, the last before I´m having a short vacation. See you next weekend ...

Grungy again

I´ve finished my ATC for the first of two Grunge Swaps today, and here they are.

Let it grow


Here´s the last of the three old postcards I´ve bought last weekend - this one is from 1915, written to a German soldier. It´s up for trade, so if you trade for it, you can read the whole story on the back (and I´ll translate it for you if necessary).

Dust

I´ve made a few Grungy ATCs tonight for two different swaps; "Dust" is the one I like best.

70 Flowers

I don´t use my flower stamps very often and wasn´t sure if I should skip this week´s Wednesday Stampers´ theme "Flowers" - but as I needed a greeting card for my aunt´s 70th birthday I tried to combine both challenges.
Stamps by Stamp Francisco, Hero Arts, Stampington, and Inkadinkado.

Sowing the seeds of love


Remember the lyrics "Sowing the seeds of love"? These have inspired me to alter this postcard -the second one of my Sunday flea market findings and of course the original is by Millet.

Dreaming of a nest





This is the sixth and probably last of my Bird ATCs for the second swap.

Found today

I´ve been to a little flea market today with only books and postcards. I couldn´t resist when I found this old postcard to a soldier from the beginning of the 19th century. Maybe he would have liked the plus of consolation I´ve added to the vintage lady ...

Two Hearts


Combining my latest anatomy pieces with my passion for German literature, here´s a quote from Goethe´s "Faust" as a 4 x 4 inch page. It doesn´t work in English because it´s translated "Two souls live in my breast" instead of "Two hearts ...".

Japanese Postcards




Two more altered postcards, both from Japan. (Both are for trade.)
