Christmas 2017 - No. 001

Samstag, 5. August 2017

Hello :)
It's August and I have a christmas card. Am I crazy? Probably! But I have to start early and I have some time now. My mother was so in love with the card I sent her last christmas, she wished for some cards for her in a similar style. So I started making some. I don't like making identical cards, so every card will be different.
I also love the winter flowers Set by Simon Says Stamp. It's perfect for some messy watercoloring. It's sad that the newer flower sets by Simon don't have the stitched lines outside of the leaves and flowers. I love that about the older sets.
I kept the watercoloring quite loose and messy on purpose. It fits the stampset and gives the card a more artsy look.


Hallo :)
Es ist gerade mal August und ich poste schon eine Weihnachtskarte. Bin ich verrückt geworden? Wahrscheinlich! Aber ich muss früh anfangen und im Moment habe ich Urlaub und es regnet es ständig. Meiner Mutter hat die Karte, die sie letztes Jahr von mit bekommen hat, so gut gefallen, dass sie sich ähnliche Karten für dieses Jahr gewünscht hat. Also habe ich damit angefangen. Da ich nicht gerne mehrere gleiche Karten mache, wird jede Karte etwas anders sein.
Ich mag das Simon Says Stamp Stempelset sehr und es eignet sich sehr gut für wildere, künstlerische Aquarellarbeiten. Ich habe die Farben absichtlich fließen lassen.
Die alten Blumensets von Simon Says Stamp gefallen mir besser als die neuen. Bei den neuen sind die gestrichelten Linien alle in den Blättern, wodurch das Motiv weniger unordentlich oder künstlerisch wirken. Schade.

Stamps: Simon Says Stamp "Merry Christmas" and "Winter Flowers"
Embossing: Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold
Coloring: Mijello Mission Gold
Die: CreaLies Stittched Rectangle
Watercolorpaper: Hahnemühle
