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.
