Vintage ATC's

This time I started with four challenges in mind:
One that asked for ATC cards
One that asked for anything BUT a card
One that showed an add for inspiration, where I took fashion as a keyword
and One that asked to ink an old stamp.

I started with the stamp. I knew exactly which one it would be, and stamped and colored it 5 times.
Then I went for the background paper, added the lace ribbon, and the shett of music notes.
I played with locations and configurations until I was happy and then I glued everything down.

Then I went to making 4 more.
and Ooops.....
When I came to colour and age the music sheet I picked the wrong ink. A darker one...
But I liked the total look of the card with the darker sheet, so I left it.
Which is why there's one card with a lighter music sheet...

These are the challenges the ATC's participate in:

If the shoe fits - inspirational challenge
Incy Wincy - Colour me wonderful
Pals Paper Art - Anything but a card
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Lots of layering
Quitoxic - Ink up an old stamp
Magical Crafts - Vintage

Love is in the air

It seems love is really in the air as Valentine's day nears. So many challenges refer to it - either by the subject of the creation, the colors, or by using the heart element.

These are the challenges this card was created to answer:

Creative Belli - Hearts
Crafty Catz - Love
Incy Wincy - Colour Me Wonderful
C.R.A.F.T - Red
Simon Says - Punch It
Kewl Stamps - Colors
Stamp Away With Me - One Man's Trash...
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Lots of Layering
Totally Gorjuss - Dimension
Ildi Co's - Colors
One Stop - Love & Kisses
2S4Y - Sketch
Quixotic - Ink Up an Old Stamp
Cute Daisy May - Ribbon & Flowers

I would also like to invite you to "Tuesday Trio" - the new Israeli sketch blog (written in both Hebrew and English), where every tuesday there's a new sketch.


Fairies, anyone?

I LOVE Fairies.
Always have.

More then that, I choose to believe in them. To believe that they are all around us, helping us in different little ways we are unaware of.

Which is why I couldn't resist buying a few sets of fairy stamps, and which is why I always have one set of them in my craft bag at all times...

So when I sat down to create this card, the first stamps to land on my table where the fairies by inkadinkado and the trees by crafty individuals.

Again, I tried to answer multi-challenges in one card.

The callenges I participated in are:

PaperPlay challenges - Handwriting
Creative Crad crew - Punch It
ABC Challenges - M is for Masking
Simon Says - Punch it
Incy Wincy - Colour Me Wonderful
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Lots of Layering

I was going for much more, but missed the deadline again...
I realy need to start at the begning of the week next time...

Seeing Stars

When the year started, I made a few decisions.
One was to open with friends the new Israeli sketch blog - Tuesday Trio.
Another was to open this blog, and start participating in some challenges around the net.
It took me a little while to get here, but here I am.

Let me show you the card first:

 This card was made for the following challenges:

1.  La La Land Crafts Blog - #21 - Shaped cards
2.  The corrosive challenge - #46 - Distressing
3.  Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - #13 - A heart filled color combo (to tell the truth, I was aiming for the previous challenge - Heavy metal, but I missed it, and by chance, my card fits this challenge as well  :-) )
4.  PaperPlay Challenges - #2 - Furry Friends
5.  Creative Belli - #82 - Glitter or rhinestone
6.  Creative card crew - #42 - Distressing

I was going for a couple more, but missed the deadline.... Maybe next time I'll do better.
