Spring Greens

The theme for this month´s Visible Image ATC swap was Spring Greens, so I knew I wanted to make an ATC that welcomes spring. 

The accompanying card was inspired by images of Chicago and its green coloured river celebrating St. Patrick´s Day. As always, the scan doesn´t show the shimmering mica sprays behind the city skyline ...

Chicken Eggs

Once in a year, I´m having a fabulous afternoon and evening together with 3 of my best friends, painting Easter eggs and having fun with cake, beverages, music and political discussions. It´s one my highlights of each year, but usually I only paint two eggs. This year´s eggs show chickens as I´ve loved painting my chicken postcard recently. I have used watercolours and several pencils and markers here.

When I saw that this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge theme was "Chicken", I thought "I know I have a matching stamp" ... then I didn´t find it tonight and drew my own chicken. Then I found that stamp but liked my own chicken so much more. Art is to be open to surprise yourself (and maybe others).

Alice - First Step

For this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed Alice I´ve made a paper collage hand coloured and finished with some rubber stamps. Such a nice theme as Alice never gets boring, there´s always something new to find in this book.

Wearing your everyday face can be a necessity or a betrayal. You should be allowed to just be you, but you´re not.

Here´s my card for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Masks".

Red Roses

Have you ever tried to scan something red? You´ll be surprised to see the result ... Reds that go well together in real life will look weird together on your scan. So you have to believe me that the reds on my card really look great together on the original card!

I´ve collaged two magazine photos of a woman and a bunch of red roses, used clear gesso upon them and painted them with watersoluble crayons, then added two stamps from Red Lead. 

And the whole card is my entry for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Red Roses".

Love is all around

Valentine themes are always difficult for me as I´m not into hearts and love themed art. So for this month´s Visible Image ATC swap themed "Love is all around" I took a different path that suited me more. This card and ATC reached Canada in high speed and and have found a loving home :-)

Imperfect Circles

For this year´s rubberstamping art project at Heindesign themed Circles, I´ve made this card using stamps from Red Lead, VivaLasVegaStamps and De Stempelwinkel. I think you can see how much fun I´ve had with this one!

Bauhaus Design

Last night I´ve made two Bauhaus themed postcards to accompany a Bauhaus themed gift for a friend. Now I can´t decide which one I want to use for this purpose ... do you have a favourite?

Light and Darkness

I´m hosting this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge this week with the theme "Light and Darkness".  

For my sample card I´ve picked a quote from Goethe´s play "Götz von Berlichingen": Wo viel Licht ist, ist starker Schatten. 

So I´ve used a custom made Goethe stamp, a light bulb from Katzelkraft and a text stamp from PaperArtsy to illustrate my thoughts. Plus gesso and shimmering watercolours of course.

I hope you´ll feel inspired to show us your own version of this theme this week!

Butterfly Effect

We´ve all heard of the Butterfly Effect - doing one thing and causing many effects this way. That´s the thought behind my card for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge. 

I´ve used stamps from Paper Artsy/ Lynne Perrella and Visible Image and used shimmery watercolours from VHAquarell for colouring.

Year of the Rabbit


I never really got the idea of Chinese zodiac signs because I can´t believe that soneone born in the a specific year has something in common with everyone else born in that year. However, in a few days the Chinese new year will start, and it´s the Year of the Rabbit. 

When I read that this is the theme for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge, I thought "hm, I know I have some rabbit stamps", but it wasn´t before tonight that I found out how many I have - and I won´t tell you ;-))

Then today I read that stamp designer Tracy Evans is ill with Covid right now, and I thought "Why not make a card with only her designs" ... and here it is, my card to celebrate the Year of the Rabbit - may it be a good one.
