Things With Wings

Hello there! 
A Monday means a fresh Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

This week is all about 


As always you can win a $50 voucher and spend it at SSS Store!

First thought was a dragonfly which I absolutely adore or a butterfly maybe.
But finally I decided to use the Cupid which obviously has wings.
This card is quite heavy with a lot of mixed media applied. 
Just take a look:

The texture background is made just by applying gesso in uneven way.
I love the effect it leaves on the surface.
Then I treated it with Infusions and Prima Acrylic Paints 
adding some stamping and some details with rub ons.

Layer It Up

Hello everyone!
Is this a first day of SPRING!? 
Oh yeah! Finally! So happy! 
Spring is my favorite season ever!

The other great thing is a brand new SSS Monday Challenge!

This week we ask you to 


Who doesn't love layers, right?

 Here is my very spring, colorful and layered tag.

And this are pictures of layered background building:


This is a tag made with leftovers and pieces of cardstocks stamped 
and stenciled that I made someday and left for an other ocassion.
 I wanted to use them all but finally I changed my mind 
and only used the one for the tag background.
Then adhered the Ring Frame die and the circles left from it (thanks, Sandra!)
I applied some corrugared cardboard and randomly twisted twine.
I covered it all with White Gesso.

 Then I played with adding 3 shades of teal sprays and water.
After that I decided to give some contrast to the teal and put some 
Fishtails Frames with watercolor stamped flowers inside.
Finally I covered the tag with a cream tuille to calm down the colors 
and make a base for my word and leaves. That's it! Easy, right?
