PTI MIM #67 Challenge: "Mixing Patterned Papers"

The PTI Make-It-Monday videos are getting better and better this year! It's so interesting to hear how the DT's are thinking, why they chose the things they chose and what you have to watch out for. I decided to participate in this week's MIM (#67). I'm not very comfortable with soft colours, I'm trying hard to not to "have to" use more contrasting colour shades... This is what I came up with!

Stuff used:
Blue, aqua and pink Panduro cardstock
Patterned paper: Melissa Frances - Kitchy Kitchen
PTI Aqua mist felt
Panduro brown felt
MFT Die-Namics Fishtail Banner
PTI Sweet as can be die

Enjoy the ride - PTI

Ink practice on small tags

Waterfall - or from a high tree above the beach? Too bad you can't really see that the leaves and bird are dimensional...

I've been playing with my Inks a bit lately. I ended up with these six tags. Most of the stamps used is free stamps from the Brittish magazine Craft Stamper. (Ivy leaves, small flying birds, flower, castle, rabbits...) The "Beach"sentiment is a single stamp from Imaginisce. The rest is small stamps from Inkadinkado that I had in my collection...

Me, in the very far future!

Fantasy castle.
Spring tag.

Distress tags - my take on Tim Holtz's style!

Angelology - my way!

My second post today is the second in a series...
I want to make cards that illustrates some of my more interesting books...
This time it's "Angelology" by Danielle Trussoni.
It's a strange card, but it sure is a strange book! :)
