Long time no see

Hi there!

It has been a long, very long time since I posted anything here.
I am still here, just being busy with other things.

A very tempting a-thon is going on at atcs for all, have not showed myself there for a long time too!

Anyhoo, I'll be back and show some stuff.

Acrylic block stamping

I learned this at Two Peas in a Bucket actually coming from Stamping Mathilda, as my alltime favorite blogger, she has so many great projects!
In a short bit, you take the clear acrylic block and some distress ink pads, ink the acrylic block like you are inking a stamp, spray some water and stamp it on (white) aquarel paper.
Then I stamped over it with a words stamp from hero arts, a stamp from the butterfly sheet by I brake for stamps and the flowers on the side are a stamp by elusive images.

Having a day off, I love it!
I started an atc yesterday and just didn't know how to finish it, there where 2 butterflies on a kind of red background, that is just my problem, how do I finish.

Today I sat down at my table and started to finish my card, the blueish sprinkle is a flower from the new stamps by Art Journey, I sprayed it with Ecoline.
The white butterfly on the right corner is a combination of distress ink and sprayed Ecoline, cut out the butterfly and glued it on top of the butterfly I stamped yesterday.
Some nylon thread is attached to the card and 2 beads on top of the thread finished my card.

Black White Red

Tuesday already! I made an ATC for the TMTA challenge Black, White and Red. At first I was looking for more creature kind of stamps, but I should have known, I do not have those.
Went on searching and found this, an Art-Journey sheet with pins and a magic mesh stamp.
I stamped the magic mesh with Perfect Resist, brayered it with Distress Ink Fired Brick, dried it a bit with a papertowel and stamped over it with the pin stamp. The girl is from a sheet also sold by Art-Journey, the little hat is a High Hopes Birthday Stamp ;)) and that's about it.
Thanks for stopping by, please say hi! It is very much appreciated.

I made this tag for the saturday challenge at Splitcoast, it is noupload Sunday so I am showing it here now, and tomorrow on Splitcoast.
First I stamped the clock on 'krimpiedinkie' and shrunk, then the butterfly on the same stuff, I added some UTEE on the clock and sort of glued the butterfly to the clock by pushing it into the molten UTEE.
I sponged the tag with different shades of pink Distress Ink, stamped a few butterflies, text and swirls, after finishing I glued the clockbutterfly piece to the tag.

Magic Noel

The challenge at 365 cards is I'm Hung Up.
I have a pretty Christmas stampset, never used it (shame on me). Untill I saw this challenge.
I geared up my Cricut and cut out 2 stars. Then stamped the girl image with Perfect Resist, sponged the background with Distress Inks, Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters, some Broken China and there's the background.
Then I stamped the girl image and the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black. A bit of Copper colored mist makes it shiny. The 2nd star is tied with the green ribbon. It had to be a card!
