A wonderful world of bubbles, bubbllez..

I never get enough of making backgrounds. 

Here I've used Distress inks and a Magenta stencil, and water, and the 'soap bubble' stamp. 

The 'soap bubble' and the  'Juffertje in't Groen" 

(yes, that's what we call it here in the Netherlands) 
are my two new designs for Magenta this time! 

LOVE them!

Bookpaper, stamps, a splash of color...

.. and stitching, makes for hours of fun! 

The background has been made with watercolor crayons and gesso on bookpaper.  I stamped the cat on a piece of bookpaper that was painted with (diluted) gesso first. 
I've added some stitches to the border of the background, it creates a frame around it.  
All the stamps are from Lost Coast designs.  
Those eyes say everything! :)

I am entering this in the challenge on 
1. Lost Coast design - A splash of bright color
3. Vintage Journey - sew special 

I LOVE to just play!

 ... with this golden oldie from Magenta. It's such a beauty!

Till next time!

I dreamt...

 I've made this card of a part of a monoprint, and heat embossed the poem onto it with archival ink and clear embossing powder. 
The poem (Dutch, Inkerbell Stamps) is about our Heavenly Father, helping us during difficult times, in fact He is carrying us!
