Altered Mona

Did you ever think that Mona Lisa is beautiful? Well, her smile is a little mysterious, but since I was a kid I always missed her eyebrows ... maybe that´s why I gave her Marilyn´s eyes for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Alter Mona"? It seems that she wanted some more accessories from Paula Kesselring, Itkupilli, Beth Rimmer, Crowabout StudioB and Songbirdy - hope she´s feeling better now after all these years!

Bingo!

When I saw that Cindy is our host for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge, I immediately knew the theme she has chosen, as she´s the queen of BINGO cards!
Here´s my own attempt on the theme, using an original bingo card as my background.

Love is Everything

I´m not a big fan of Valentines, so give me a kit called "Love is Everything" and I´ll make something not really uplifting and definitely no Valentine cards ;-) But in my opinion that´s what makes image kits so interesting: they´re always so versatile; you do NOT only put some images together and all artwork made with a kit looks the same in the end, but you can put your own character and feelings in the artwork and make it your own. These digital skinny pages have been made with Nancy Baumiller´s new Crowabout StudioB kits Love is Everything Elements and Dream in Color Papers.

Air Mail

Thanks for Air Mail! I remember well when I started sending letters, cards and mail art items overseas, I´ve been amazed by the short time it took most of them to arrive, and every attempt was an adventure ... After more than ten years of sending international mail, I´m still fond of finding envelopes in my mailbox that went such a long way.
This card was made for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Air Mail", and I´ve used rubber stamps from Zettiology, Crafty Individuals, Character Constructions, Catslife Press, LaBlanche, Artistic Stamper and Tim Holtz/ Stampers Anonymous here.

Hanky Panky

When days are that dark as they use to be right now, it´s so nice to have the opportunity to play with some bright colours. I really like the pink and teal tones in the new Songbirdy Hanky Panky kits. For both collages I have used all three sets of papers, elements and word art.

Lots of Colours for Dark Days

There´s hardly a single day right now without rain, storm and darkness. That´s why I´ve been especially fond of the opportunity to play with some very colourful stuff from Nancy Baumiller last weekend. She came out with her "Transformation Papers" today that you can see used in these two collages - for the first one, I´ve added elements from her older kits "Genesis" and "I Believe In", and for the second one pieces from "Tree Lovers and Things", "The Bird Whisperer", "Soul Whispers", "Relax" and "House Blessings".
