Time for Christmas Cards


It´s time to make Christmas cards now!
I´ve made some this afternoon, and these are my favourites so far.
The one on the left has an angel from a Raphael painting, a book page scrap and two stamps from Flamingo Art and Magnolia.

Stampington´s Three Kings stamp was overpainted with Glimmer Glam "Hay Ride" and then sprayed with three colours of Glimmer Mist. The Hay Ride Glimmer masks the stamped image.
The last card has the Magnolia text stamp and the Flamingo Art border again, combined with a stone angel (from Kelly Burton) as an inkjet transfer made with Transfer Ink (if you don´t know that product, please have a look at my Youtube videos).

Anything Can Happen

I have just received the new issue of "Just Stamps", the German stamping magazine. You´ll find these two ATCs on Page 16, and as always, you´ll find many interesting articles and projects in it.

A Promise

This is my entry for the Paper Whimsy November ATC challenge themed "Doors". I like the image of this girl because of the doubt shown in her face - I think it must be a big promise that may convince her to open the door ...
Images by Paper Whimsy of course.

Baby, it´s getting cold outside!

In case you´ve missed me and my blog posts during the last ten days - the reason is that even for a good multi-tasker it´s not possible to knit while making mixed-media projects :-)
Did I already mention that I always give some Christmas gifts to myself? Not all of these shown above, of course.

Father and Son

Postage Stamps are this week´s TMTA theme, and I couldn´t resist making another Postage People ATC, using a stamp from Lost Aussie Design here.

CCC: Perfect Distress

Perfect Distress is this week´s Tim Holtz technique for Linda´s Compendium of Curiosities challenge.
I have used wild honey, broken china, and dusty concord for the background and stamped with aged mahogany and chipped sapphire, then used Perfect Pearls in Rust and Blue Patina - what a pity that the scan doesn´t show the shimmer!

A House for my ATCs

Maybe you remember that I´ve decorated a chipboard house to store my Gothic arches in it? Well, that box came in a set of three, and last weekend I´ve finally decorated the second one to store some of my ATCs in it.
