Old People

 ... is one of the challenge themes in the brand new "Just Stamps" magazine, and you´ll find my three ATCs above and the card below on pages 31 and 32. I like the fact that the new issue has come out in printed form again, but you´re able to download it as well if this is what you prefer. I especially recommend the article about bistre (p. 54-65), a product that I´ve had much fun with lately and that makes beautiful backgrounds.

Lady Liberty

My two ATCs for this week´s TMTA challenge "Cities" both show Lady Liberty - the first one has a cityscape stamp from Tim Holtz on a Rothko painting (from the MoMa in New York), the second one shows her mourning (stamp from Viva Las Vegas) on a background from Rucola Designs, additional stamps on each card are from Stampington and Tim Holtz.

Oriental

For this week´s Sunday Postcard Art themed "Oriental" I´ve made a digital postcard that looked really great after I had printed it on watercolour paper. All elements used here are from Tumble Fish Studio at Deviant Scrap.

Mixed Up World

Better late than never - here´s my entry for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge! Of course I didn´t want to miss this one as it´s themed "Bird People"!
For all you Bird People swap participants here´s some good news: Last week the last return envelope arrived in South Africa, and this week I finally received the missing ATCs from Malaysia, so none of all those envelopes back and forth did get lost, phew!

Misfit Dollhouse

What a great theme for a storewide designer collab this is, "Misfit Dollhouse"! You´ll find a great variety of kits for making your own dollhouses at DeviantScrap now.
My first two samples are digital, and they´ve been made with the Tumble Fish Studio kits "Misfit Dollhouse 1" and "Misfit Dollhouse 2".
The following cut and paste Moleskine journal pages have backgrounds made with bistre and images from Tumble Fish Studio´s "Misfit Dollhouse 1".

As this is a storewide collab, of course Hidden Vintage Studios also have some new kits for it - my first sample uses girls from the new "Misfit Dollhouse" kit (plus a background from Tumble Fish Studio´s kit no. 1), and the second one features another girl from that kit plus a baby from "Misfit Dollhouse DollBabies" (all other elements from both new Tumble Fish Studio kits).

Shine For Me Only

This week´s theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge is Aliens - sounds difficult first, but as there has been a lovely store collab at Deviant Scrap a few months ago, I had all that I needed to send my little Alien on his journey - I printed a background from Holliewood Studios on watercolour paper and then added elements from Tumble Fish Studio and the little Alien from Hidden Vintage Studios.

Just Another Pretty Face

... is the name of Hidden Vintage Studios´ brand new kit at Deviant Scrap, and it has some lovely girl images for you to use in your digital as well as cut and paste artwork - check it out here.
I´ve made three cut and paste postcards with it, using stenciled or dyed backgrounds and a resist paper from LaBlanche plus rubber stamps from Cavallini, Darkroom Door, Stampers Anonymous, Art Impressions and Stempelmine.
