The Sky is NOT the Limit

For this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Airplanes" I´ve made a rubber stamped postcard using stamps from Unity Stamps, Red Lead Paperworks and VivaLasVegaStamps.
Believe it or not, but I´ve never been on a plane because I´ve never left Europe - I´ve always traveled by train, car or bus. People thought I´m crazy until it became hip to avoid traveling by plane because of ecological reasons only a few months ago, in Germany we talk about "Flugscham" today. Is there anything like this in YOUR country, or is it still o. k. to travel by plane for you?

Couples

I tried to ignore Valentine´s Day, but then Beth came out with a fabulous new Songbirdy kit called "Characters - Couples" that is just perfect for that occasion ... so please decide for yourself if this couple with respect any boundaries (like doors?) or follow Truman Capote´s words and take a step beyond.

Books are my Friends

For this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge, my sister has chosen the theme "Literature", one of my favourites. So here´s my card, as colourful as the world of books is.

Architecture ATCs

Suddenly, my muse visited me last night, and I´ve made these Architecture themed ATCs. Some of them have glazed parts that don´t show well in the scan of course.

Book Lovers

I´ve been ill for weeks now, and one of the few things I´ve been able to do was reading - and I´m really thankful that this window to the world of thoughts is always there for you if you´re willing to open it.

Storms

If you´re from Europe, you will have noticed the heavy storms that went over our continent for the last few days, no matter if you called it Sabine, Ciara or by any other name. I hope that it won´t be that windy anymore from tomorrow on and believe in the saying on my 4 x 6 postcard: Storms don´t last forever! Of course I had to use a postage person, and I´ve had her on my desk for weeks before I found the perfect surroundings for her, but I´m really happy now with the final version.

Dragon Farm

Do you believe that dragons are evil? Whenever they appear in fairy tales or other stories, men have to fight against them, but I don´t remember why ...
So my digital postcard for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge changes allegiance and shows a modern form of dragon factory farming to be able to sell their tears and strength.
(Credits go to Rucola Design, itkupilli, ViVa Artistry, Holliewood Studios, Brandy Murray and Miles Beyond the Moon, hope I didn´t forget anyone ...)

Oddities

When have you been to the cinema for the last time? Do you remember, or do you prefer DVDs or streaming? In my digital collage, a movie star tries to be "up to date" by using a TV screen, but the empty room tells another story - probably her audience stayed at home, watching their favourite films and series elsewhere. Times are always a-changing ...
My second collage is self-explaining and really odd, no wonder as both collages were made with Beth Todd´s new Songbirdy kit called "Oddities", available at MischiefCircus.com. I hope that you like oddities as much as I do!

Art gave her Wings

When I made my Frida Kahlo ATCs (see my previous blog post), I didn´t know that Frida would be the theme for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge. Though I still had all my Frida related rubber stamps on my desk, I decided to make a digital card. Credits go to Itkupilli, Xquizart, Crafty Button Designs, KrystyScrap, Rucola, and Holliewood Studio.
