SDC 298 - ... with a pop of colour*



Stampotique Designers Challenge 298...

" Black and white with a POP of colour".

I chose the gorgeous Mansfield sea turtle and used drawing ink to "pop" the tag.

And - I couldn`t stop myself from adding the words " hide, Forest". I thought of Forest Gump and his beloved Jenny - she shouted "run Forest" so he could get away from his bullies . This turtle needs a place to hide from all of us trying to spot him in the sea.

Anyway - nice to be active again. The house has been a mess the last 3 months - I `m trying to sort out MY space again.

SDC 292 - a bookmark for Stampotique






Back again!
Coming home from New Zealand was quit tough -  summer /winter - jetlag - and of course - holiday/work. But we sure had a wonderful time in that beautiful country! Close to nature and this feeling of being very small in a big and powerful world. Loved every minute!

And here we are - back home.
I jumped into Stampotiques latest challenge, were the theme this fortnight is bookmarks.


This time I used my latest found on the Stampotique site. His name is Mervyn. I just couldn`t resist him :-) . AND , of course the little heart from my dear tree topper together with the beautiful french journal page!

Hope you like it!

SDC 286 Nature


The latest challenge at Stampotique is all about nature.

I made this picture thinking about the beautiful leaves falling this time of the year. I also thought about friendship and how important it is to spend qualitity time together. The days get shorter, colder and darker and I love this cosy time with my friends when we all have to get closer to keep warm...

I used my beloved Stampotique stamps;

1. Magda`s reindeer
2. Magda`s Mr Owl
3. Penney-Torrente`s Dog Cube
4. Penney-Torrente`s Two Sticks

... and a clear stamp from WOW, called Flights of fancy .

Happy autumn to you all!

SDC 283 anything but a card


Yesterday Luxemburg celebrated fathers day.
For me, that meant creating something cute and useful with the children at work.
We ended up making parking disks in the shape of a car.

At home i made my own parking disk, using my beloved Stampotique stamps;

1. Heads
2. Clover
3.  French journal page

I made it like a tag - I cut out the P , the picture wheel and the arrow with my cuttlebug ( borrowing DIE`s from dear Katherine ).

The eyes in the heads were colored and later filled with Glossy Accents to get that staring effect.

So, this is my entry to the latest challenge at Stampotique Designers Challenge 283, where the theme is "anything but a card".
