New Hanglar Only Challenge Blog & Pirate Ahoy!

  Happy Memorial Day Weekend if you are living here in the U.S. and Happy Sunday to everyone else! I hope your weekend was as fabulous as mine so far and that you can also enjoy nice and warm weather! First I like to share some news with you, for my card scroll a little further down! I have some GREAT news for you today. My DT sisters Ilona , Marina , Nicolchen (from ISB-DT) and I have decided to start a new challenge blog. Well, yes I know there are a lot of challenge blogs out there already! BUT this one is a special one :-) This is going to be a Hänglar only challenge blog.

So check out our new challenge blog for all the details and challenge rules.  Rules and blog postings will  soon also be available in English. I hope you like

ROP DT - Black & White Tilda With a Hint of Pink

Happy Wednesday and thanks for stopping by today! Finally I did it and colored a black & white image. I wanted to do this for quite some time now and when I saw the challenge over at Copic Creations   wich is 'Monochromatic' I knew I wanted to enter. And here she is my Fairy Dust Tilda in black & white with just a hint of pink. I colored her with my Copics using the W tones. The cute Fairy Dust Tilda is available now at Roses on Paper as well as many other images from the Fairy Tale Collection!   I added just a little bit of soft pink on her cheeks and also airbrushed a bit using another pink shade around her. The rest of the image and also the card is only black and white (and grey shades of course). At Magnolia Down Under Challenges this week the theme is "Shaped Card". I made a flower shaped card and cut it out using my Cricut and and the 'Tags, Bags, Boxes and more' cartridge. I'm also entering this card  at EAC #92 where the theme th

We have fabulous weather and I can't wait to go outside and enjoy the Sunday by the pool ;-)  It's time for another fortnightly ISB -Challenge . This time we have an inspiring sketch for you created by our wonderful talented Marina . When I first saw the sketch I knew instantly what image I would like to use with it: 'Bubbling Tilda' from Magnolias Fairy Tale release. I got mine from Summer's store Roses on Paper . There is also a sale going on right now at Roses on Paper: 25% off most items! Go and check it out! I colored Tilda with my Distress Ink Pads and she was stamped onto 140 lb watercolor paper with Archival Ink. I decided to do my card in a vintage distressed style look and also added lots of glitter. My DP is from Crafty Secrets 'Heartwarming Vintage Collection - classic' and CS is Bazzill.

Today it is going to be a very hot day here so I have to get all my chores and errands done early and will keep this post short. My card today shows another super cute image from the very talented Elisabeth Bell . This one is available through Susanas Custom Art and Card Designs and it's called 'Little Suzanne'. This is also my entry for the SCACD Try it out Tuesday challenge which is a sketch this week. I colored my image using Copics (a picture of Copics used is at the end of the posting). DP is from Basic Greys new collection Chapelle and my CS is Martha Stewart.

For the corner decorations I used a Cuttlebug die and glossy CS.  The Spellinders
