Monthly blog hop at Smeared Ink + Weekly DT-project

Time for the May DT hop at Smeared Ink and the theme this time is "Alter something"! I had a couple of ideas but didn't have time for some of them so made it easy and altered a candybox. =) 

I used images from The Abyss set (only available from the Rubber Club), since I wanted to try and color the mermaid and the beautiful fish! =) Also used the little fish and coral from the same set.

The mermaid is colored with promarkers and glitterpens, I made her green with blue hair in different shades of blue. The fish was colored in orange, gold, goldyellow and red. Added glitter to some parts and that will show in the photos below. Then I colored the little fish and coral too. I had some scraps of homemade paper that looks great torn, so I tore out some parts with green leaves and that gave the feel of unerwater movement.
All this was glued onto a tall circular box that had contained chocolate, unfortunatly I forgot to take a pic of it before, so only have pics of the finished product. Thought I'd fill it with other candy and give it away as a gift alter on! =)

Here is the order for the hop, so you will find your way around to the others on the designteam! =)

New rubberstamp release at Smeared Ink + Weekly DT-project and a boob warning! =)

Today there are two new rubber stamps sheets released at Smeared Ink, one is called Winged Things and one The Abyss! Both are fabulous and I have made two cards with a sample from each sheet, you can find then in the Smeared Ink Rubber Club. =) For more fun and dark inspiration you can always drop by at the Smeared and Smudged Forum! =)

This is also my weekly DT-project and if you don't like bare boobs, just check out the first card! =)

This first card is made with a set of beautiful, but a bit different sea horses and a sentiment, both from "The Abyss"! I colored the sea horses with different shades of green and yellow, added some glitterpens and tried to give them a little depth with shading some parts. They are mounted with 3D pillows onto a fluffy handmade paper with torn edges and a scrap from a fishing themed paper. 

The second card is from the set "Winged Things" and I choose this one since I associated the birds with fire and thought it would be fun to color her hair in a different way too. I used different red, orange, yellow and gold pens for the hair, red, orange and gold for the birds too. Everything is mounted on a red scrap paper with an asian style, onto a red cs and a then a gold/yellow backing! =)

Here is the blogroll for the hop:

Lady Anne's Christmas Club May

Finally got my second Christmas card in May done for Lady Anne's Christmas Club and this one is made with an image from Tiddly Inks! =)
I colored the image with my promarkers, wrote "God Jul" = Merry Christmas, then inked the edges with a blue inkpad. Added a christmas dp behind the image and mounted it on a red cs. =)

My weekly DT-project for Smeared Ink

I have been trying to make something for Smeared Ink all weekend and this week until I though I'd make something with the Water nymph, that I didn't have time to make for the hop last week! 

So here is a card I made, the image is colored with a lot of blue and green shades (promarkers), a few different glitter pens and framed with a gray promarker. Then I cut it out and found a great backgroundpaper for it. But it stilled missed something and I remembered the die I bought from a fellow crafter, just perfect! =)
So now I had seaweed behind and poking through the image. Added a green and a blue cardstock to finish it off. 

Curious yet... well here is my finished card!

Don't forget to check out the forum for more amazing projects from all the members there! =)

My weekly project for Smeared Ink and great news! =)

I was asked to be on the Smeared Ink DT until the spring term ends in June, could I say no, noway, had to say YES of course! =D *dancing around*

So here is my week 1 in May project, wasn't sure what to make but when cleaning out some stuff I found my partylite lantern, where you can change the cover. So perfect for this project! I begun with printing out one of Poe's Digital papers and printed it so it would just about fit, had to add some red cardstock so it wouldn't split apart.
Then I printed out some more papers from the digital kit with the Raven, cut out three Ravens and glued one onto red cardstock and two onto black cardstock and cut them out. After that I glued it onto the first paper and put it into my lantern, added the second glas between the paper and the outer glass, so that the candle in the middle wouldn't accidently set it on fire. 

I have taken pics with the candle lit and without, so here are a few and some close ups of the Raven. So for this project I only used papers from Smeared Ink's Poe Boy Digital Paper pack 12x12.

If you want to see more from the DT, check out the links under the DT badge. =) Or join us in the Smeared and Smudged forum! =)

Dragonfly Dreams -Challenge 5 How does your garden grow

Time for a new challenge with Dragonfly Dreams and this time the theme is "Hoe does your garden grow" and our sponsor is:

We all got to choose something from the store and I just couldn't resist to use the Daisies and Ladybugs set!
I merged the cloud background with the digiset of daisies and ladybugs. Printed it out and colored the digital image, added some shading and glossy accent to the ladybugs. This is how it turned out and I like it a lot! =)
I just hope that I will get a sunny summer and a green balcony this year! =)

Digistamps4Joy May Monthly Christmas Challenge

I got my new image for the Monthly Christmas challenge yesterday so decided to make a card right away! =) I also got my win from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles 12 Months of Christmas Card Link Up, so used that paper as the background. 

The fun image King 1 - Time to go is colored with promarkers and I tried to match the king and his camel! =) Then I cut it out and added it with 3D pillows to the dp from Decosse Dynamite Doodles. I also added a proverb I found online and all is mounted on a light blue cs.

I'm adding this to the following challenges:
