ROBYN'S FETISH CHALLENGE #187 - VINTAGE STYLE

Hi all!

Welcome to a new challenge at Robyn's Fetish!
This weeks theme is a real challenge for me, we want to see some VINTAGE style cards. Since my style is a bit more colorful and bright, I always have a hard time doing vintage, even though I love doing it.

For this challenge we have an awesome sponsor, Create with TLC. Just click on the banner below to go to their shop. They are offering a $12 gift certificate for the randomly chosen winner.


Create with TLC also generously provided some images to the DT to work with, and this is what I created.
Pretty vintage, right? The papers I used are from the Euro-shop, and all edges are inked with Distress Ink Vintage Photo. Let me show you a close-up of the colored image.
I used my Copic Markers to color the image, and I used the following markers.
Skin: E51, E53
Hair: E74, E77
Greens: YG63, YG67
Pinks: RV91, RV93, RV95
I used one of my Nestabilities Diamond dies to cut out the image.
The flowers I used are by Prima Marketing and they were in my stash for ages. The lace I used is also really old, my mother-in-law gave it to me. It used to be the trim of her curtains, and it's about 30 years old. Now that is what you call vintage, right!

That was it for today, now hop over to Robyn's Fetish and join us with your vintage projects!

Hugs, Sandra

Digi Haven DT - Thanks or Thanksgiving


Hi all!!

Welcome to a new fortnightly challenge at Digi Haven! We have a very fitting theme for this challenge. We want to see your Thanks or Thanksgiving cards!
We also have a fabulous sponsor for this challenge, Beccy's Place!
Just click on the banner below to go to her shop!
http://beccysplace.blogspot.com/http://www.beccysplace.com/
Beccy is also generously offering 3 images to the randomly chosen winner, isn't that fabulous! You'd better be joining us!!

This is what I created for this challenge.
Since I live in the Netherlands and we don't celebrate Thanksgiving, I decided to make a Thank You card. The image I chose to use is also by Beccy's Place, but it is one of her freebies.
The image is called Peonies in a vase and can be found here.
I used my trusted Copic Markers to color the image, and I used the following markers.
Peonies: R20, R22, R24
Leaves: YG91, YG93, YG95
Vase: W00, W1
Water: BG0000
I used my oval dies to cut out the image, and matted it with a scalloped oval.
The designer papers I used are by Kaisercraft. I inked all edges with Distress Ink Vintage Photo. The sentiment is by AmyR from her Autumn Sentiments set. I stamped it with Versamark ink and heat-embossed it with some Ranger superfine detail embossing powder. To finish my card I used a pearlmaker pen and sewed some buttons to my card.

That was it for today, I hope you all like it! Now hop over to Digi Haven and join us!

Digi Haven - Fall

Hi all!

Time for a new challenge at Digi Haven! We want to see some FALL-themed projects!
We also have a fabulous sponsor for this challenge, Floppy Latte! Floppy Latte is offering $6 gift certificate to the randomly chosen winner! Isn't that awesome?
Just click on the banner below to go to the shop!
http://www.floppylattedesigns.com/catalog/

Floppy Latte also generously provided some images to the DT to work with, and this is what I created with it.
I made a card using some scraps I had left. The papers are by My Minds Eye, and by using the scraps, there is nothing left of this paperpad... Guess I will have to buy me a new one! :)
The image is by Floppy Latte, and can be found here.
I used a Nestabilities die to cut out the sentiment.
All edges are inked with Distress Ink Vintage Photo. The buttons I used are from my stash, and so are the ribbons.. The flowers are by Prima Marketing and Marianne Design, and were the perfect fall colors!

That was it for today, I hope you all like it! Now hop over to Digi Haven and join us with your fall project!

Hugs, Sandra

Robyn's Fetish Challenge 184 - Thanksgiving

Hi all!

Welcome to a new challenge at Robyn's Fetish! This is the first DT-sample I created for Robyn's Fetish since my absence, so I hope you all like it!
This week we want to see your THANKSGIVING projects! We are sponsored by Robyn's Fetish and Robyn is kindly offering 3 digi's of the winners choice! Thanks Robyn!
Just click on the banner below to go directly to the shop.

The image I used for my card is also generously sponsored by Robyn's Fetish and is called Cornucopia. You can find the image here.
 
Notice the difference in my card? I usually color with my trusted Copic Markers, but this time I used my coloring pencils! Let me show you a close-up of my colored image!
I used my Nestabilities die to cut the image, and I used some Distress Ink Vintage Photo on the edges.
The papers I used are by Prima Marketing, and I also inked the edges of my papers. The lace is really vintage. It was a gift from my mother-in-law and it used to be lace from her curtains from about 40 years back. I also used some flat-backed pearls from my stash.

That was it for today, I hope you all like it. Now hop over to Robyn's Fetish and show us your Thanksgiving projects!

Hugs, Sandra
