This week´s theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge is twins. When I read it, I knew immediately that it would inspire me and I wanted to take part, but I had too many ideas for it ... 

In fact two old friends of mine have twins (that are adults now), so I have thought about the implications of being a twin a lot during the last 25 years. I´m sure that twins have a special connection that lasts for their lifetime, but I think that most of them feel the need to express their individuality more than most of us do.

Mark Making


When I read a theme for a challenge, I often think "Oh, I´m out", but sometimes I´m hooked and immediately see the stamps I´ll use. The theme "Mark Making" for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge was one of these. 

I started with making my marks on a paper by using gesso and an old credit card. Then I loaded my black ink pad with more ink and used the credit card again to push the ink into the stamp pad - and then used the credit card with the black ink again on my background. 

Then Dina Wakley´s stamps came in perfectly, and I also added stamps from Red Lead. I hope and believe that the fun I´ve had making this card is visible in the final card.

Weather Forecast


For this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Newsprint" I´ve used the weather forecast in my daily newspaper as my background. I collaged it with some gesso and used stamps from Stempelbar and Klartext on it. And yes, I hope we´ll have some rain here soon because it´s too hot right now ...

Soap Bubbles


Sometimes it just takes a few new rubber stamps to get the inspiration for a card, and sometimes these stamps don´t need anything else to make a cool card. These stamps reminded me of my love for soap bubbles - when my friends´ children were small, I´ve loved to bring soap bubbles as a gift for them - you´ll never be too old to enjoy soap bubbles.
