The Power of Green

I was in a green mode these days, like you can see on my card I made for today for my post at the Crafts and Me blog. I used the beautiful new digi stamp 'Aliah'which you can find HERE. She is from the fabulous artist Hannah Lynn. Check out the other gorgeous digis over at Crafts and Me as well, there are many others from her.



I coloured the image with Copics. 



I tried several different flowers for adding to my card. And then ended up with those crochet flowers and leafs. I love them and I think they are the perfect addition. They not fit to each card, but I think to those images they are great.



The papers I used are from a local store. 

Very soon some more beautiful digital stamps from the fabulous artist Sara Burrier are available at the Crafts and Me shop. Take a look at them, you will LOVE them.

And there is still some time left to join us in the  Crafts and Me challenge, where the theme is Vintage / Distressed.

With this card I want to join following challenges:
Craft us Crazy - Mothers Day
Dutch Dare - Mothers Day
Paper Romance - Summer
The Rubber Cafe - Mothers Day
Cooking up with Katie - Ribbons and Bows


Hugs, Karina

Forever Rose

A big hello to all creative souls out there. It is my turn today to show at the Crafts and Me blog what I made with one of their gorgeous Digis. Weekend is coming soon, so the best time to take a look at the new release of four wonderful images by Hannah Lynn and all the other images as well at the Crafts and Me Shop, pick one or more of them and start creating with them. I can assure you, they are so much fun to work with.

I picked for myself the beautiful 'Forever Rose' image by Hannah Lynn to make my card for today. You can find it here. I so much love this image. It is a pleasure to colour, like all the images of this wonderful artist. 

She is coloured with Copics. When I almost finished my card I got this sweet pink feather in my hands. I storaged them already quite a long time. And I knew this feather would be a lovely addition as some hair decoration. What do you think?



With this card I want to enter following challenges;

Digital Tuesday - Little Woman
Papertake Weekly - Dimension
Tuesday Throwdown - Sparkle and Bling
Paper Romance - Paper Flowers

Well, I wish everyone a wonderful weekend now and keep on crafting. Thank you so much for watching.

Hugs, Karina
