February 2014

Hi there,

on the beginning of this month I started this blog and I am really overwhelmed by your appreciation. I have had the honor to add three badges to "Little Art Cottage" already.




Thanks again.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Yours,
Tanja

Retrosketches #103

Hi,

I got inspired by the Retrosketches #103-Sketch and created the following tag:




I cut a tag from watercolor paper and used an emboss-resist and gelatos to create the tone on tone background. I added the JOFY-Butterfly and some diecut pieces held together by a heart-shaped brad, tinted ribbon with the gelatos and stamped the Love-sentiment. At the end, I added a little alcohol-ink-tinted bubble and grey twine as the final embellishments.

I also want to show you a closeup of the flower on which I also used an emboss-resist.


Here is a list of the supplies used for this tag:
Hero Arts - Life of the Party Dots
Hero Arts - Magical Background
Avery Elle - Lovely Letters
Paper Artsy - JOFY Collection 11
diecuts
ribbon
grey twine
Prima Marketing - Delight Brads
Alcohol Inks (Snowcap, Sailboat Blue) 
Gelatos (Snow Cone, Cotton Candy, Boysenberry, Watermelon, Raspberry, Grape)

Yours,
Tanja 


Two Challenges

Hi,

today I would like to show you the card that I created for Freshly Made Sketches #124 - A Sketch by Karren:



After embossing the clouds at the tops of the panels with my Sizzix Texture Boutique, I used Viva Inka Gold to highlight them in Steel Blue. Since I haven't used my Inka Gold for quite a while now, I will also link this card up to the Lawnscaping Challenge No. 76: Dust 'em off.


Here is my list of supplies:
Lawn Fawn - Home Sweet Home
off-white, blue and green cardstock
iridescent hearts
Darice Embossing Folder - Clouds Background

I hope you like this card. I think it turned out pretty cute.

Thanks for stopping by.

Yours,
Tanja
