Steampunk Swap ATCs

If you´ve ever made Steampunk ATC with all their bulky metal embellishments, you know why I couldn´t scan these properly - so here´s a bad photo of them, but believe me, the originals are really nice.

CCC: Tinted Vision Fragments

This large (5,9 x 7,3 inches) card is my entry for this week´s Compendium of Curiosities challenge No. 7 on Linda´s blog which is "Tinted Vision Fragments". What a fun and versatile technique!

I know that it´s a bit early for Halloween cards, but as today´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge is "Owls", here are my bewitched owls - take some candy nevertheless!

Moo meets ATC

What a fun name for a fun swap! As a moo card (2,8 x 7 cm) is relatively large to find a place on an ATC, it´s not easy to combine the two - have a try!

A Midsummer Night´s Dream

This 6 x 6 page is my entry for the new Wednesday Stamper´s challenge "A Midsummer Night´s Dream". This is not one of my favourite Shakespeare plays (those are The Tempest, Macbeth, and Richard III.), maybe because I don´t like all that elves and ghosts and fairytale stuff ... but I like the fact that the lion, the moon and even the wall play their own roles here. Here´s a snippet from the first scene of the fifth act.

CCC: Multi-Medium Collage

Challenge No. 6 for Linda´s Compendium of Curiosities Challenge (CCC) based on Tim Holtz´ techniques is themed "Multi-Medium Collage". I´ve made an ATC here for a swap themed "Two", but if you make the same design larger (and maybe brighter :-)), it will make a lovely wedding card.

Fishing Trip No. 5

This 4 x 8 skinny page is my entry for the Wednesday Stamper´s challenge themed "Gone Fishing" as well as for Helga´s blog challenge thats wants us to make mermaids, -people or -animals. I´ve used one of the new ARTchix chipboard mermaid tails here, so it´s a bit 3-D.

The Things I Love

Due to my computer problems and other things I´ve missed a few challenges on Linda´s Compendium of Curiousities challenge (CCC) - but here´s my entry for the fifth challenge themed Distress Embossing Powders. I love the worn effect they add to this card.

You are a Doll

The theme for our bi-weekly ARTchix Flickr lottery is "anything starting with a D" - so here´s my grungy ATC!

Today I had to make four Paris themed ATCs, one for a one-on-one trade at Creative Souls ...
and three for a swap.

Born to make your Fortune

When I was blog hopping today, I saw that my friend Mary from Green Paper has put a challenge on her blog: She has some lovely collage images for you to download and wants you to play with them. I couldn´t resist, so here´s my 5,9 x 6,6 card.

There´s something mysterious about Mona Lisa - and no, I´m not talking about her smile ... Did you ever wonder what the other half of Mona Lisa looks like? The answer is my entry for this week´s TMTA challenge "Mona Lisa".

Flag Garland Swap

These last two weeks haven´t been a very creative time for me - too many things to do concerning my computer, my birthday, and at work, and the heat (up to 38 °C here!) and the soccer world championship took the rest of my energy.
But I´ve finished my flags for the next ARTchix swap; we have to use elements from a kit that makes a lovely garland of flags in the end.

Back online!

It seem´s that I´m back online now, and I´ll try to scan and upload again as soon as I´ve been able to create something new ...
