Saturday sketch card: Mojo Monday 479

Happy Saturday!
Had fun playing with the Mojo Monday sketch for today.
It is going to be an owl post, for my friend Paulette
has send me this lovely word ard and I just had to use it
for I love owls.
For my card I used this sketch from the

For my card I used
distress markers
versamark and white embossing powder

I started with printing the sentiment on white paper
anbd cutting it to the size I wanted. Next the owl
is stamped with versamark and embossed with white 
embossing powder. The image is ready for coloring.

I colored with the markers on my craft sheet and with 
a paintbrush I colored the owl. The white embossing
lines work as a resist.
The tree is a die from Tim Holtz.
In the background I used plain blue and scrap paper
with the feathers.  
A few leaves are in the place of the circle from
the sketch.

And here is another card that i made:
This is a z-fold card with an image I found on internet.

Here you see how I folded the card.
First double and then the front of the card double 
again towards the front.

The cute flowers are from my stash.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Inspiration for Chinese New Year: The Year of the Rooster

On January 28 the Chinese New Year takes place and
their years always have the name of an animal.
 This year will be the Year of the Rooster.

Here you find some more information about the
signifigance of the rooster and if you where born
in a year of the rooster and what it means for you.
This card looks complicated, but below I explain 
how to do it and you notice how easy it is.

I used:
The Year of  the Rooster stamp from Art Neko
Holiday Greetings also from Art Neko

Start with stamping the rooster with versamark ink at
random on the background panel. Emboss it with white
embossing powder.

Now color the paper with red and orange ink 
with a blending tool The white embossing powder
works as a resist.

Take the sentiment and stamp with black ink.
Finally add some drops of water. Heat set.

Stamp the center piece with the rooster in black ink and color
with pencil. To assemble the card wrap some red/white
twine around the background panel, add the rooster with foam tape.
The happy new year is stamped on a piece of white paper and cut 
into 3 pieces and looks like the rooster is shouting it.

For this card I used the same rooster stamp and here the
background is even more easy!

 I used a piece of matt silver paper for the back panel.
Stamping the rooster at random with black ink.

For the center piece I embossed the rooster in red.
On the silver background I added some silver holographic
sequins to add some bling to the card.

Thanks so much for looking
and have a creative day!

Coffee cards and winner

Today I want to share a technique with you
that I found on You Tube and really like.
It is with watercoloring and embossing.
Even though I have not all the right attributes,
I have given it a try with materials I have.

For my cards I have used the coffee cup stamps by
Michael Strong and some sentiments from

This is the tutorial I found on You Tube
and when you watch it you see here there are 
zig pens used for coloring. I do not have them. I used
distress stains for coloring my images.

If you have problems accessing the tutorial.
here is the website were i found it.

Here is the 2nd card I made. I had a lot of fun and
will try it with other images again.

And now for the winner of my blog candy from last week:
