Winged girl for the Myth and Magic challenge

Hello, LCD fans.
Today I want to show you my last contribution for this month.

It is for the Myth and Magic challenge.
Well I think this winged girl is very magical.
And here is a description of how I made her.

Watercolor paper 14cm x 20 cm,
Stazon timber brown, Distress ink, antique linen, seedless preserves, spiced marmalade, peacock feathers, broken china. Prima marketing vintage pastels watercolor paint. Distress glaze. Black cardstock.
A mask or stencil.
Nuvo aqua shimmer.

I started stamping the winged girl with stazon timber brown. Then with a finger with distress glaze around the stamp, only the outside edge. Then colored the winged girl with the watercolor paint. When it was completely dry I applied the entire stamp with a layer of distress glaze. I sponged the border around the stamp with Distress ink antique linen. Then placed the mask or stencil on the paper and go over it with a sponge with distress glaze.Then you take the 4 distress ink colors and rub some of them on your craft sheet. Spray a little bit of water on it and put your paper on it. You don't have to worry about your image, the distress glaze works as a resist. Let it dry well and matte with black cardboard.
Give the wings, dress and hairband a little bit off aqua shimmer. Have fun and join our challenge at

Lost Coast designs challenge, Myth and Magic




Hello all. What an exciting challenge, myth and magic! Well I think it is a great subject. That is why I used my cyclops stamp. I made it a bit of a dark card. And this is how I made it.

Materials I used:
Disterss Oxide, Lucky clover and Fossilized amber.
Distressink, Black soot.
Stazon, timber brown.
White gell pen.


On a craftsheet you make a few swipes with the two colors Disteress oxide and a small spray of water. Pick up the ink stains with your card. Let it dry well, and repeat if necessary.
And dry well again. Stamp the cyclops with Stazon Timber brown. Color it in, you may know yourself with what, I used inktense pencils. I made the card darker with distress Black soot. Work inwards from the corners. This way you get a light behind the cyclops. I carefully dripped the Distress black soot with some water. Finally, with a white gell pen, give the cyclops accents. Have fun with it, and don't forget to participate in our challenge. You can win new stamps, who wouldn't want that?
Dont forget to read the challenge rules first.

Lost Coast Designs Spring has sprung challenge

Are you also crazy about Easter? I do love it. Making the house cozy and making nice cards for family and friends. So this is my Easter card. I chose Distress Oxide, love it.
In the colors:
Musterd seed
Mermaid lagoon
Abandoned coral
Lucky Clover

And the stamps I used are, Bubbles background.
And Katzelkraft, bird. Which are also for sale at Lost Coast Designs.


I made a background with all the colors Distress Oxide. Made the border around the card with a black posca marker. After that I made the black grids with a stencil and the black posca marker and added some lines with a white posca.
The egg is heat embossed with a fine black embossing powder.
Now the fun part starts. I colored with all the distress colors I used for the background.
It takes some practice, but I love the result. I treated it like watercolor paint. Stampt the bird on a piece off watercolor paper, and colored it with Distress Oxide.

I hope you enjoyed it, until next time.
And dont forget to join the challenge.

Lost coast designs challenge "spring has sprung"

 Hello everyone.
Today I want to tell you how I made this art journal card.  First I took a piece of sturdy cardboard and pasted on a page from an old music book.  I kept the music paper a bit smaller than the cardboard so that you can see the edges.After I smeared the paper with Gesso I colored it with Gelato's.
Then I added the diamond's with a stencil and Gelato stick. I drew edges around it with a pencil and scratched it with a knife. I stamped the top edge with Versa magic and the Hearts and Curls Border.  With a brush with water I went over the hearts so that they are a bit lighter in color.
I wrote the text and added the dashes with a Posca marker.
Well that was the background, and then for the beautiful dragonfly stamp from the More Bugz sheet. Take a piece of watercolor paper. Stamp with a waterproof ink.
I colored the dragonfly with Tombo markers, but you can color it with whatever you want. Then here and there some white paint splatters and you're done.

I hope you enjoy this little tutorial.
And join our Spring Has Sprung challenge, its fun.

En wat een leuke is het. Spring has sprung. Heerlijk Lente kleuren en thema. Je hoef niet eens LCD stempels te gebruiken, maar het heeft wel voorkeur. Vergeet niet eerst de regels te lezen. Veel plezier.


This is my contribution. A spring landscape made with the beautiful shrubbery stamp. The card is made with pan pastel and stamped with stazon. I stamped it twice to give the impression that the culms move in a gentle breeze. I dabbled with acrylic paint markers. it all looks like small flowers.
Dit is mijn bijdrage. Een lente landschapje gemaakt met de prachtige shrubbery stempel. De kaart is gemaakt met panpastel en gestempeld met stazon. ik heb hem 2 keer gestempeld om de indruk te wekken dat de halmen bewegen in een zacht briesje. Met acryl paint markers heb ik getippeld. zo lijken het allemaal klein bloemetjes.
