Love @ second sight

it was for me with this new Basic Grey paper pad (Origins). I have put it already to the stash of stuff i knew i would not use anytime. Than i sat down and I wanted to create something more “masculine” and it just was in my opinion perfect. Love all the leaves and flowers.

Today i would say a bit more about my card. It has been about 1.5 years that i have colored the last time with my watercolor paper and ink refillers but i was up for a challenge :-) It is a shame to purchase all those things and than not using it anymore. So the cute little Hanglar boy is colored with following colors Kiwi Kiss, Vintage Photo, Black Soot, Scattered Straw, Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Barely Banana, Blush Blossom and Pretty In Pink. (Stampin up and Tim Holtz colors)

When i saw Aud’s sketch i was so happy to see that iam going to be able to use my new Nestabilitie die :-) available though Cute Stams and Cards, have had that sitting in my basket for a while now too. Before adding it to my card i sponged the corners with Barely Banana and Close to Cocoa, than sprit zed it with Tattered Angles “Pearl” spray. The sentiment is by Stampin up and can currently be earned for free if you place a $50 order during Sell-A-Bration time. If you need anything from Stampin up, just let me know.. iam hosting an other book party beginning of March to take advantage of this special. Iam NOT a SU demonstrator and can therefore ship your order internationally!

Claudia I too thought I didn't like that paper at first (because I like more feminine paper) but after seeing it in several projects I have changed my mind. And you have made it look wonderful!

Supersüß! Die Coloration ist ja umwerfend! Wundervoll auch die riesige Blume und die Stanzteile!
Mit dem Material geht es uns wohl allen so, man hortet Unmengen von Zubehör und kauft trotzdem immer neues.
