CASometry Challenge 2. Make five: Stage 3

Hello, dear friends! So happy you are still with me and my cardmaking challenge CASometry Challenge 2. Make five. Again you amazed me with your cards! Every time it’s a great pleasure to look at them and read your posts. Just a reminder about main rules — you can find them here. In two words — you should choose the one stamp set and to make five CAS cards (any themed) with it. And a reminder about our pinterest board where I pinned some cards from the InLinkz. And here is my third card with Pix’s Favorites set by Mama Elephant. It’s with fall theme haha)) I like this bunny in a coat holdin a cup of coffee, just can’t imagine it for other seasons! I made a panel with the woodgrain texture stamp by Tim Holtz — stamped with the grey inks and then blended with the lighter color. And at the end I added simple autumn landscape for my

Altenew and Tombow Collaboration Blog Hop + VIDEO

Welcome to Altenew and Tombow Collaboration Blog Hop! There are TWO $30 Tombow USA prize packs and TWO $30 Altenew gift certificates up for grabs. Winners will be picked randomly from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop left by June 3rd. Winners will be announced on the Tombow USA and Altenew blogs on Saturday, June 4, 2016. For today I made a card using only two colors of pens and one stamp set by Altenew — Persian Motifs. I played with Tombow Dual Brush Set Landscape, it includes muted earth colors. This is was my first experience of using markers (I had an experience working with Copic markers, but then I did not have enough skills and knowledge to be inspired by them and start my own collection, so I returned them to their owner). Persian Motifs is a set I like for a long time and I decided

MFT Color Challenge #46

Hello! We have new sweet and soft palette stars today on MFT Challenge blog. These colors inspired me to use some critters, for example bunnies band for my cad. I colored them with these colors — Kraft for the fur and the ground, Sno Cone for the suits and the sky, In the Buff for the details and Peach Bellini for city silhouettes. Всем привет! В челлендж-блоге МФТ сегодня стартует новая палитра, очень нежная и приятная, меня она вдохновила использовать каких-нибудь милашек. Милашки всегда смотрятся особенно приятно, когда покрашены такими нежными оттенками, а тут еще такая палитра, что все идеально сошлось)) тут даже рассказывать больше нечего!)) С этим заячьим оркестром самое простое, что можно сделать, это парад конечно. Вот и отправила своих ушастых петь песни и зазывать весну. Всем хорошего настроения!

Papertrey Ink May 2016 Blog Hop + Video

Hello! Today I want to participate on Papertrey Ink May blog hop. And this time they have just an amazing inspiration! I like the watercolor look and soft colors. And for my card I used birds from Spring Woods set (oh I just can’t stop to use this set! these birds are perfect!). I was inspired by the colors of the image-inspiration and by grid layout of the similar elements, so stamped only one bird with the colors I can see on the image. I used Distress Inks — they are good for playing with the water techniques. And then I soaked the stamped images with water (I used clear water brush — you can watch the video at the end of this post). Stamps by PTI used: Spring Woods, Come All Ну Faithful, Book ClubCardstock by PTI used: Harvest Gold, Sweet Blush. Привет! Сегодня хочу в очередной раз попытать удачи в

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #282

Hello! Today we have new sketch on MFT Challenge blog for the next week. This time we have the sketch with duplicate elements — I like this! I like rythms in cards and like when this rytm is brocken with one or two elements. So for my card I chose a scene where cute bunny wants to snuggle with his bear. The sketch has five circles on it and I made five pieces too — bunny and four bears. Three bears are colored in gray shades and one of them has normal color — this is «the rifgt» bear to snuggle with))) Привет! И еще один удачный скетч от МФТ, в этом месяце мне все скетчи понравились! И особенно мне в нем нравится наличие пяти повторяющихся элементов. Ритм и его нарушение очень популярный прием, и надо сказать, что очень эффектный! По сюжету у меня тут зайка, который хочет пообниматься со своим медвежонком. И идет
