Nine coaches are waiting for you (Stamp Addicts DT)

These were my favourite stamps from the latest assignement: a horse and a coach. I have already shown a coach and a pumpkin card earlier this month. Here are the rest of the horsey-coach creations. Most of them are coloured in with acrylics and Le Plume pens.

Rapunzel's Tower (Stamp Addicts DT)

This is quite a big stamp. Since it's called Rapunzel's Tower, I thought it would be logical to add some golden locks going down. Then I was stumped for the message. What should I write? Escape?! Rescue me?! or don't pull my hair, or I will be bald?
(sorry for the bad joke). In the end I went for the safe word "love", after all it is a love story. lol
And I liked the idea of using it for a new home card.

Fairy tales (Stamp Addicts DT)

All the girlie stuff - magic hats and crowns and sparkle. I have painted my queenie with watercolours and acrylic, and embossed two crowns for her.

Life is a Cabaret, old chum

This is a birthday card for Jo. The main image has been painted and cut out. The curtain took me a while to master, lol.

No use permitting
some prophet of doom
To wipe every smile away.
Come hear the music play.
Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
Come to the Cabaret!

More Earth Day challenges

This card is a combo of two challenges: reuse waste and stamp on a photo.
For the main stamped image I used a Rubbadubbadoo stamp/Beach block, and highlighted it with a powder blue acrylic. I also managed to paint over a fat Italian lady in the corner. Nothing wrong with fat ladies, lol, just she wasn't suitable for my card.
Reused items are: a ribbon from the Swedish crackers, and a link from a broken belt, that again I painted with acrylics.
Words stamped are all TT (Pieces of the Puzzle and Gift from the sea).

Earth Day/Eat Fresh challenge

For my "Have a magical day" card I used a new Judikins stamp (coach). The coach immediately brought memories of Cinderella's story, hence my handmade pumpkin.

Earth Day/Newspaper challenge/Dream and believe

The challenge is to use newspapers as crafts materials. I folded a little boat and slightly painted it over with acrylics. The newspaper background has also been painted.
My idea was that a little boat, floating in the puddle, is dreaming of adventures and being a pirate's galleon.
And that you should always have dreams, small or big, and maybe, one day, they will come true.
Stamps used: Clearly Defined Pirate treasure and TT Pieces of the Puzzle.

Not much

Feeling rather listless lately, and hence the lack of anything creative.
