I never forget ... What?

Hello,

On my next card I used an icon. The elephant is a free icon from icon archive.com.
I thought he looked funny. I have a thing with icons, the simple lines often are very effective images.



The black patterned paper looks like the skin of an elephant.
I made the sentiment in word using the font called "this font looks like elephant".
For the cardstock I used different shades of gray.

I'm entering this card in these challenges:

outlawz challenges: Saturday shades-of-gray
my time to craft challenge: zoo animals
fab n funky challenge: flora or fauna

Thanks for visiting my blog. Take care.

Hugs Henriëtte.

The sentiment I stamped on lavender cardstock using black ink.

Cute farm animals

Hi,

My second post today is to share with you a card I made using "the cute farm set" digital stamps from digi stamp boutique. SO CUTE!!

Thank you watercolor card

Hello,

I don't have much mojo these last few weeks. That happens once or twice every year and I know it will past, but it's very irritating.
So today I sat down at my crafting table in my little crafting room and just started to watercolor.
I placed a sticker on watercolor paper and used distress markers to colour the inside and around the sticker.
Once the paint dried I removed the sticker and added a "thank you" rubb-on.



I would like to enter this card in these challenges:


Thank you for stopping over. Have a nice day.

Hugs, Henriëtte.

We have a nice sunny weekend with temperatures around 15 degrees C.

My next card has a spring theme with a tulip as the focal point.

I printed the "happy spring" sentiment on the cardstock.
