Ciao a tutti! Simon Monday Challenge non va in vacanza e oggi come ogni lunedì vi propone un nuovo tema: Sprinkles and Splatters.
Per cui pronti a spruzzare, cospargere polvere, macchiare ... aspettiamo di vedervi cosa vi suggerisce la vostra creatività.
Seconda settimana per la nostra Designer Spotlight di Agosto Anne Redfern aka Redanne, splendida creativa inglese, non perdetevi il suo blog!

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Wild Things Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week we are challenging you to have fun Sprinkling and Splattering whatever you make!
Second week for our Designer Spotlight Anne Redfern aka Redanne, check out her wonderful blog!

Ho realizzato una card sempre a tema marino ma con colori differenti dal solito, confesso mi sono ispirata ai meravigliosi progetti di Aida Haron, un'artista favolosa che usa i colori tenui e pastello in modo incredibile! Non è stato così semplice per me che sono abituata a usare colori molto intensi, ma è una strada che mi piacerebbe iniziare a percorrere. questo è il primo passo.... vedremo...

I made a card sea themed but with different colors than  usual, I confessed I was inspired by the wonderful projects by Aida Haron, a fabulous artist who uses  soft and pastel  shades in an incredible way! It was not so simple for me cause usually I'm used to choose very intense colors, but it's a direction I'd like to start to following. This is the first step....

To stay on the theme of the week, I used embossing powders, sprayed on my seashell in the background and on the edges of the card. As you can see on the edges of the card they seem really small sprinkles! Thanks to a stamp by Tim Holtz that is part of a set that has a few years, Urban Tapestry. I use it very often when I want to give an irregular texture, small irregular spots ... beautiful, I confess you one of the stamps I've used more than ever! In today's card I used it with Versamark and Ranger Copper Tinsel embossing powder.

Per rimanere nel tema della settimana, ho usato le polveri da embossing spruzzate sulla conchiglia che fa da background  e sui bordi della card. Come potete vedere  vedere sui bordi della card, sembrano davvero piccoli spruzzi! Meritodi  un francobollo di Tim Holtz che fa parte di un set di qualche anno fa, Urban Tapestry. Io lo uso molto spesso quando voglio dare una texture irregolare, piccole macchie irregolari ... bellissimo, confesso uno dei timbri che ho utilizzato di più da sempre. Nella card di oggi l'ho usato con  Versamark e polvere da embossing Ranger Copper Tinsel.

Il timbro al centro fa parte di Sea life di Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous, avete capito che adoro questo set vero????? Oggi qui chiedo ufficialmente a Sizzix ... le fustelle abbinate! Sarebbe meraviglioso averle!  Sono di Sizzix Tim Holtz anche le fustelle Funky Floral che ho usato per creare il contorno floreale!

The stamp in the center is part of Sea Life by Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous, did you understand that I love this set ????? Today here I officially ask Sizzix ... matching dies for this stamp set! It would be wonderful to have them! Funky Floral 1-2-3-dies by Tim Holtz Sizzix to create the floral arrangement!

Barbara, this is gorgeous! You have certainly proved that you can work in both brights and pastel colours, the background you created for the lobster is gorgeous, the 'greenery' you added is beautiful too! Hugs, Anne xx

Beulah Bee ha detto...

Wonderful arrangement and colors (so harmonious and natural). I have that splatter stamp too--I agree that it's very useful. I know you had fun with this one and hope you get your wish for Sea Life die cuts.

Macarena ha detto...

This is absolutely amazing and you really got very close to Aida's style which I also adore for her soft pastels. Your main composition is brillant and I love the layers of florals and seashells. The explore word cut out of the woodgrain panel is so cool and gives such a warmth to this fabulous card. Hugs, Marzena

Paula Cheney ha detto...

wonderful project Barbara. I love the colors you chose to use and all the texture. Wonderful use the Funky Florals for an under the sea card! That was very clever!

Maura ha detto...
