Nature inspired card

I have a card for the Work it Wednesday challenge at Simon Says Stamp. The challenge is to use blue color in a project or card.

I made a card with Tim Holtz's stamps and stencils (I used Dreamweaver crackle past through the stencil). I used Distress Stickles to create more texture on the stamped nest.
I coloured the blue background with my own mist made with Perfect pearls and watercolor.

I like how it turned out.

Mid-Summer challenge

I made a journal page that I am going to post on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog.
This week the theme is Mid-Summer.

I created a journal page with my latest Tim Holtz's stamps and crackle paste. I used the paste through a stencil (Tim Holtz).

I created the vintage background with various vintage style stamps from Sheena Douglass (Crafter's companion) and Kaisercraft.
I used Distress Inks to colour the background (I started from a piece of kraft cardstock).

Mixed media canvas with tattered flowers

I love creating mixed media canvases since I attended a class with Finnabair in Stockholm (Sweden).

I created a canvas with an empty space in a center to place a photo.

I used Tim Holtz tattered flowers die and Spellbinders dies to make the leaves. The leaves are covered with embossing powder. 

I really love how it turned out, I love making my own paper flowers.
I used Paverpol, it is a kind of a glue that stiffens paper and fabric. Although the flowers were cut from handmade paper, they are very stiff and they don't lie flat on the canvas.

I used Primary Elements pigments from Prima to colour the canvas, it is very shimmery in real life.
