Whimsy Stamp Mazarine the Fairy

Today I will show you a rainbow color card with the amazing Mazarine Fairy stamp from the monthly New Release on the Whimsy Blog.

What is the idea behind the card?

I love colorful cards and one of my favorite colors are the rainbow one :) Do you played with the Distress inks from Tim Holtz? Oh, what a fun... Try it out, please... and you will play a lot with them... You do not need a lot for a rainbow color... I think I made one with only three colors, because the blend fantastic... and made new colors...

How I made this card?

I stamped the image with a watercolor ink, because this time I work with my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush and add later a few Prismapencils. I use a A2 format card for my card base and use the Distress ink directly on the card base, also I splatter my card with the ink.... So it is really messy... After drying I secure the color with Distress Glaze... It is a great tool, like a cream and you put it directly to the image/ background... It secure it, if come water again to the picture, don't happened... and it don't smear... I searched an sentiment for this wonderful lady... and found one from W Plus 9 (Curious Forest Friends), which I hot embossed with a silver glitter powder from Hero Arts. 

Tipps and Tricks

You can use distress backgrounds to many occasions and it looks really great. If you play with Distress Ink, it will be great if you have a paper towel for hold the card, so you haven't fingerprints on the project... 

Don't forget...

Our next Challenge will open on the June15th... I can't wait to see your idea... 


here I list products that I used and also alternativ products...

New Release Event Scrappers Delights Pirate

This week have Scrappers Delights New Release (click here)... 

What are the new images?

You will find a few new cute pirate digital stamps. You will have different pirates and a ship.... What from this guys do you prefer? The name of the images is "Its a pirate life". You can buy it here... At this time you will find an discount on the products.

Which one I get?

I get two images from the NR. Its a pirate life 1 and 5.  One pirate and the ship... As I saw the images I must think about the film "Pirates from the Caribbean" on the funny Captain Jack Sparrow :) If you like music, so you can look this video, I found in youtube...

How I  made my projects?

I made two cards, a special card form called Shadow box... I love how deep the card is... I colored the pirate with my Zig real brush markers... The ship I colored with Zig and pencils... I distressed the clouds and the water and cut out the water with Lawn Fawn Cloud die cuts and sore it in the right size for the Shadow box (also a die from Lawn Fawn). The sentiment is from an old stamp company (Whiff of Joy, is retired).

On the other card... Normal size A2 (American).  I use a thin wooden paper and distressed it, after than I glue it to the card base, after than I cut a circle in the card... and show in the background a scene... Here I used also an retired stamp from the same company like before.

Thanks for visit my blog and for your lovely comment:) If you prefer an image, let me know, maybe I can color it and you can save the next time :)

Regenbogen Farben/ Fantasy - Rainbow Colors/ Fantasy

Heute startet wieder eine neue Herausforderung bei
Today starts a new challenge by

baste-traum/ BLOG

Diesmal geht es ums Thema Regenbogen Farben/ Fantasy. Eine Karte, ein Bild oder eine Geschenkbox... aber auch eine Einladung zum Essen, ins Kino, echt... Wie zeigst Du auf Papier, dass Du jemanden magst, welches Motiv wirst Du wählen? Ich bin schon ganz gespannt, auf Deine Inspiration.

This time it goes around the theme Rainbow Colors/ Fantasy. A card, a picture or a giftbox... but why not a invitation to a restaurant/ in cinema/ etc.... Now I am curious, how will you show your friend your friendship/ love on paper? Which scene will you use?  I am glad to see your inspiration..

 Dies ist meine Inspiration. 
This is my inspiration.

Idee zur Karte
Idea behind the card

Ich habe hier ein A2 Format (US) als Kartengrundlage, welchen ich mit Distress Ink von Tim Holtz behandelt habe.... Am Anfang war ich noch nicht sicher, was genau ich machen möchte und manchmal lasse ich mich vom Internet inspirieren. Meine Freundin Francine macht gerne bunte Karten... Nachdem ich ihre Karten durchgeschaut habe, wusste ich, was ich machen möchte. Ich sah bei ihr eine ähnliche Karte, allerdings mit dem Wort Love und einen Waschbären. 
Der Drachen ist von Mama Elephant Me and My Dragon. Diesen habe ich mit meinen Comic Markern ausgemalt und ein paar Wackelaugen aufgesetzt.  Das Sentiment kommt von verschiedenen Stempeln aus meinen Inventar (sending =Hero Arts "Many Everyday Messages", Hugs is a Die from MFT and happy thougths  ist von Altenew "Beautiful Day"

I have a A2 format as card base. On this I add Distress Ink from Tim Holtz. At the beginning I wasn0t sure, what I want made. So I was looking around in the internet by my friend Francine, because she loves rainbow colors and so I found a simliar card (raccoon and Love letters). My dragon is from Mama Elephant (Me and my dragon). I color them with my Copic Markers. I add the letters HUGS from MFT to my card and the dragon. Do you work sometimes with holographic paper? Oh I love it... Also my sentiments are from different companies sending from hero Arts (everyday Messages) and the other from Altenew (Beautiful Day).

hier noch ein klitzekleines Video,  so wirkt Holographisches Papier...
here a small video, where you can see the holographic paper...
