Happy Birthday; 3D

crafting with 3D images and there is always
a need for some Birthday cards.

So I've used 2 3D images for this card, I think
they go very well together, :)

Altered book; Vintage mermaid

When I saw this months Stamp -challenge
image at Gecko Galz I knew it would make
a perfect page for my altered book, since
it's all about under water life.

Here's the cover of the book

And here's the new page
I glued the image on the page, covered the page with clear 
gesso, painted all with H2O watercolors, used white pen
here and there and added the sentiment sticker.
H2O has a lovely metallic shine, but sadly it doesn't
show very well in the picture.

ATC; Snail mail

Gecko Galz monthly image -challenge image is very romantic,
lady with a love letter, old fashion snail mail letter, :D

Die cuts, clear embossing powder, Design paper, vellum and some
stamping. Really like how the vellum butterfly turned out with
clear sparkling embossing powder, looks a bit like class.


In the Sea, II

Yesterday I made one of these mermaid (?) card,

This time little more bling and layering.

sequins, coloring with H2O watercolors.

In the Sea

I have had this AALL stamp a while now and I thought
it's about time to ink her.

I stamped the image, embossed it with white powder
and colored it with H2O watercolors, 
they have lovely shine on them.
Sentiment is from Altenew stamp set.
Then I just put the panel to the base using 3D tape
and added a hint of blue under the panel.

I made a very girly Congratulations card

My laser printer don't take watercolor paper so

covered it with clear gesso and then watercolored it.
Don't really work like on watercolorpaper but
anyway I can use watercolors with this technique.
