I bought a cd from polka doodles but didn't get to using it at all. So I finally printed some of the images and started coloring them. I used several mediums: Copics, distress inks and water color.
I used leftovers from some inlaid die cutting I did a couple of days ago.

I got down with the flu this year after not being sick for a long time. Three days  with over 39 degrees fever and two weeks of a sticking cold.. The first days I tried some lettering which resulted in the quote. The background stencil and the stamps were some of my February craft buys.

Prompt60 #22: make a color chart
Working on my 2015 motto: use your stash, I decided to color chart my Gelatos (which I don't use very often). I didn't like the look of the swatches I made so I tried some on watercolor paper. That looked so much better! But my journal isn't watercolor paper.. So I tried picking the color from the gelato with a waterbrush and I'm so happy I've finally found a way to use gelatos in this journal!

The result of a creative family-day

Once every couple of months I have a creative get together with  two of my sisters. We share dies, stamps and techniques and when it's over we create a card for each of the others.
This time we focused on dies and embossing.
This is what I made from the stash I gathered that day:
1. Card for my eldest sister created with a background paper my mother brought, an embossing folder she brought, the butterflies dies are also hers and some twine.

2. Card for my youngest sis created with a gelli plate background kraft through a Tim Holtz embossing folder and a lovely Penny Black die of a bird on a branch. I paper pieced some background paper on to the die. 

3. Since my mom joined us this time I thought I'd make her a card as well. The boxcard is something I wanted to created for a while and with all these die it flowers, this was the perfect moment!
