"Bathing beauty" for GA

This weeks theme for Gothic arches is "bathing beauties" but I did only find one image that I wanted to use, so here it is...
Right now I'm very much into this corrugated card and I have to use for everything. So this had to be an arch with a corrugated background - hope you like it!

Marie Antoinette GA

Was she ever happy?
Living in a foreign country, only with one purpose in life - to produce a " dauphin" for France , trying to amuse herself with nice jewellery, gambling ..., having all the eyes of France watching, judging and in the end chopping her head of...
Did she have some real fun in between? I certainly hope so...

Using the ranger distress inks to get the french colours and the masks from Tim Holtz to get the feeling of beeing in prison - not to be able to live a life that she would have chosen.
Stamp from paperartsy and Jaines basement.

"DREAM" for wednesdaystampers

Back from a hectic weekend in Denmark. Met the family, celebrated and got stuck in heavy trafic on the way home. Happy to be home again even if we had a good time there!

This weeks challenge on WS is " dream " and I started thinking of my dreams.
Stamps from Kelly Panacci and the flower is from a child who came to my work for the last time today. Time pass, children grow and we have to accept the changes even though it hurts sometimes...

colourful card for wednesdaystampers

This weekend we are going to Denmark to celebrate my brother in law's birthday. So of course I had to make him a card...

He is a colourful person with a lot of humor - he still smokes and he likes a glass of red. He lives in Denmark , loves the see and has been in the shipping buisiness. Now he is into quality of harwest. Lots of fun when he is around... HAPPY 50 JÖrgen!!!

Many different stamps getting hot here - the adds are from old magazines and as you might know by now - I collect strange things.

Take care and enjoy the "crazyness"...

ATC gothic shape

This time I got the idea from a book. But working with it it turned out to be NOT like in the book but just totally me... I know - many people like to keep their art simple but I can't help myself sometimes. I have to continue and add more and more things until I'm satisfied.
Here I wanted to keep the copper tone but now you can hardly see it (I coloured the green/blue paper behind the face with copper before dabbing it over with that Patina green). So I had to add more copper to get the right effect...

Stamps from Stampotique and Hero Arts.

"country flag colours" by WS

My home country is Sweden so of course I had to use the swedish flag colours for wednesdaystampers latest challenge "country flag colours".
As every crafter knows, the colours blue and yellow get green when we mix them, and that suits my home country too. Sweden is a very green country compared with many other cointries - not only colourwise but also thinking alot about our green planet earth and trying to take care of it.

Stamps: bricks and mortar 2 from paperartsy,reindeer from vielseidig verlag and the background birds from magenta.
The ATC is coloured in distress inks...

"HEJA SVERIGE!" = "go sweden!"

Luxemburg is very hot and humid this week. I hope it will be a little colder on sunday when Jaine, me and my better part will do the 10 km city-jogging for the first time in our lifes...

Have a good week everybody!
