Birthday Card by Denise van Deventer

Hello Everyone

It's Denise here today, to share my take on this months challenge! ;-)

Here's a reminder of that gorgeous Carnival mood board! ;-)


I made a Birthday card, which is a little out of my comfort zone! ;-)
It is good to be pushed sometimes to create something a little different.


Here's a closer look.


I used bits and bobs from all over, along with lots of gold and silver shimmer.
It's a decadent card, but think that's what this mood board is about...glimmer, shimmer and Caaaaaarnival! ;-)

So now it's your turn! ;-)

Hello :) Here is Tusia Lech with canvas album. This month moodboard inspired me to create a spread about my night walking to search for the stars. One of the amazingness that happens in my life lately :)



I have used 7gypsies canvas album and lost of Finnabair stuff (3D gloss gel, glass glitter, white gesso, clear gesso, stencil) and some 7 Dots Studio stickers and die-cut elements and UmWowStudio chipboard pieces.







February is the month of Carnival fill up with masks and confetti, lights and colors that create a unique and festive atmosphere.
The mood board combines brilliance and luxury, ancient and modern with a little touch of Venice.

Torn Angel by Marie Johansson


I absolutely adore the Challenge Virág crated for us! I love the colors, the textures, the pictures, the history - well - as you can hear - all of it!!! I was inpiered to do something experimental. I took this clothes stand from my daughters outgrown toys and started to play.





I added layers of paint and tissue paper. First dark copper paints, then golden, whites & silver.


Black Glass glitter add even more texture.



The wings is a piece of chipboard that I stamped on with a Finnabair texture stamp and FlitterGlu from IndigoBlu. By applying MegaFlakes (also from IndigBlu) I got the crackled gold/copper effect. You will find more details about the products used in my blog.

"Venice Carnival" February 2016 Challenge

February is the month of Carnival fill up with masks and confetti, lights and colors that create a unique and festive atmosphere.


The mood board combines brillance and luxury, ancient and modern with a little touch of Venice. 
I really loved to prepare this challenge for you, I hope it inspires you and we can meet with your entry this month!





The story behind my layout:
This summer we spent a great holiday in Alsace, France. During our stay we visited a charming village, Rosheim where were a special event that time. We could feel the festive atmosphere and felt like we were in Venice during the carnival season. Hundreds of people were walking down the small street and they were wearing breathtaking costumes. I took many great pictures.


I would like to show you one of these:




I used black cardstock as a background and I covered it with crackle medium and gold acrylic paint. Then I add more texture with structure paste and crackled style stencil. The next step was the random stamping with different patterns (dots, texts). 

Here are some close ups:




Thanks to the chipboard that I painted with blue mist I could highlight and framed the photo. I am a real fan of leftovers so I glued some stipes behind the photo. I embellished the layout with paper flowers, butterflies, metal elements, golden washi tape, lace cuts and text stickers.





The last step was giving a little shine to the layout so I put some glitter ono the flowers.
