I found an acceptable solution for me.....

....to create and ..keep...a white wedding card!....I have to avoid any ink! (:o)
Well, you can also call it clean....even without bling or stickles. Actually i was on guard using adhesive*lol*




Mostly i show my creations in my german forum first, and i had a nice advise from my dear friend Gisela, that i can also use halfpearls to avoid any mess.
Thanks...that was the missing little extra (:o)



Happy monday

When the postman rings....comes a package...

I've bought some really nice chipboards ( 2 mm) in an Online Shop from Poland.
Take a look:





Take a look at the shop from Wycinaka here only in german and polish

They also have a blog here ....i advice to use the Google Translator 

It seems to be a sunny weekend coming...so we are opening the Barbecue Season.

Altered Pocket Watch Case - Timeworn

I had a play with an empty pocket watch case, i bought from ebay. I used DecoArt Traditions acrylic paint, i bought at The Craft Barn and had a go for a timeworn look as Mr. Skinner teached us, in his Online Workshop. I don't wanted to make some kind of jewellery - look, but a look as it has been in the depths of a shed for years.......







Here you see the case before i started painting, i also choose an old earbell. I used the dremel, to cut out some sections and a little sword i bought from Craft Barn




This is one example, how you can transform things with paint. I included this pocketwatch - case in my final object. There is still one result missing....see me tapping my fingers?

Small - Smaller - Tiny

I took part in a  Matchbox - Swap on Facebook, at Louise aka Zuzu's Petals 'n' Stuff again, because i really enjoy working with little thingies.
There are so many ways to alter Matchboxes. I decided to make a little Book with one of my favorite themes:

Leonardo Da Vinci














This was the smallest matchbox i could find
but
there is a little bit more
I also stamped some handmade vintage paper
and i used another matchbox..a little bigger..
for packaging the little matchbox - book
A matchbox in a matchbox


Finally...everything together






This matchbox went to Sandy and i hope she likes it (:o)
I'm entering this for Simon Says Stamp and Show...Anything Goes
