Hi everyone. It has been a sad weekend here after the terrible event that took place in Stockholm on Friday afternoon. We walk past that place basically every time we go to town and I am so sorry for the victims and their families. In a moment, everything can change.
On a more positive note, we also had a visit from one of my oldest friends and her family, which was very nice.
This week, at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog we have a Hip Hop challenge - it can, for example, be rabbit themed or something with music. Our guest designer during April is Amy Bethke from Amy's Card Obsession. I hope you will stop by her blog to look at her very creative project.
I made a spring-time art journaling page, using a page in my Small Creative Journal on which I had earlier smeared left-over paint and splattered left-over gold paint. Whenever, I have paint left, I tend to smear it in on of my art journals. I added some Embossing Paste through the Latticework stencil and the background was mostly done.
I like this rabbit stamp by Tim Holtz and stamped it with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide on watercolor paper, misting the stamp with water before stamping. You can see the chalky effect of the Oxides here.
On the background, I added some black details and lines with a black Scribble Stick, and I also used a bunch of Snippets ephemera pieces, Small Talk stickers and Design Tape.
The flowers were stamped with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide.
I die cut flowers from Motif Cardstock with the Wildflowers #2 set and inked them with Distress Oxides. After inking, I misted them with water. The paper has a honeycomb pattern, which resisted the ink.
I like the soft pastel look of the flowers.
The word was die cut from the same paper.
At the bottom of the page, I added some strips of Design Tape, and more journaling strips.
Thank you so much for stopping by here today!!
