Sketchabilities #112 DT reveal

Hi everyone! 

It's time for the Sketchabilities #112 DT-reveal
I came up with a Bambi-LO :) 

For the background I used a paper by DCWV (lace stack). 

My title is made out of grunge-board and painted it with metallic distress paint. I used two different colors of liquid pearls to create some flourishes around the title and around my canvas flowers.

The flowers are from Prima and made of resist canvas. I sprayed them with different Glimmer Mists to color them and added a huge metallic brad in the center of each. Underneath, I applied a tiny bit of glitter Washi tape.

To highlight the tags, I used a little bit of Inka Gold and rubbed it on with my fingers. You can see a bit of the background stamping in that picture, too. 

Another close-up of my background work.

Thank you for stopping by and it would be great, if you'll join is this month by creating a layout with this beautiful sketch!

Sketchabilities #111 DT-Reveal

Hey Scrappers! 
It's just time for another beautiful sketch by Sketchabilities :) 
Here's my take on the sketch #111:

I took some photos of one of our last Florida holiday, where we were in a Lion's  Safari Park. You could feed some of the birds there by hand :) 
This time I created a rather dark and cool layout with a lot of masking and stamping on the background. 
At the first step I used glossy medium to create a subtle brick wall with one of my Prima masks. To emphasize it, it stamped with a brick wall stamp, too. I stamped the honeycombs and used another honeycomb mask with black gesso for more structure. 

After that, I used a lot different sprays and inks for more shine.

 In order to catch the eye I added a few colorful and some metallic embellishments. You can see the overlapped masks on the background of that picture. 

Then I glued down some pieces of masure tape, masking tape and the title.

And a geotag on top! 

This is the sketch for the latest challenge:

I hope to see some of you working on that sketch, too! :) 
Thank you all who participated the last time and have fun creating a new layout for us.

Thanks for stopping by!

Family and Friends März Challenge: Farbenfroh und geprägt in den Frühling

Hi everyone! Another month - another time to share my project for another Family and Friends challenge! This time it's all about embossing! The march challenge is called:
jump colorful and embossed into spring :) 

Hallo ihr Lieben! 
Ein neuer Monat und eine neue Challenge bei Family and Friends! Das Motto des Monats lautet:
farbenfroh und geprägt in den Frühling.
Also nichts wie ran an all die bunten Papiere und Farben die ihr habt, und legt los :)

I decided to craft a cute spring card. The background is embossed with two different embossing-folders and I stamped and punched out the butterflies with my Martha Steward puncher.

Den Hintergrund habe ich mit zwei verschiedenen Präge-Foldern geprägt und mit etwas Distress Ink akzentuiert. Die Schmetterlinge habe ich zuerst mit verschiedenen Farben gestempelt und dann mit meinem Martha Steward Stanzer ausgestanzt :)

My flower is made out of fabric-circels.
Thank you for stopping by! :) 

Meine Blüte habe ich aus Stoff-Kreisen zusammengeklebt und mit einer Perle verziert. Der kleine Schmetterling sitzt dann noch ganz frühlingshaft auf der Blüte oben auf. Der Frühling kann kommen!

Danke fürs Vorbeischauen ihr Lieben und ein schönes Wochenende!
