:: ATC - Color Challenge 2017 Pink ::

It really is time to have a new color in my ATC Color Challenge 2017!
I love pink so my color choice was easy! Hope you like my ATC and that you also want to join in! You find the challenge at Instagram. Follow the #atccolorchallenge2017 and #atccolorchallenge2017pink.

For my background I used pink papers from a 6x6 Bo Bunny paperpad. I added gesso with a floral patterned stencil from Prima. I wanted a romantic and bright feeling.

Next step was to add even more texture. I used a grid tape that is for wallpaper work, I think it gest a cool effect and it´s very affordable. It lasts very long also!

I added white sisal and Art-stones from Prima.

The chipboard is from Wycinanka and very cute! I was really anxious to paint the birds on my chipboard! I wanted them pink and I´m really not good at paint at all! Finally I think they turned out pretty darn cute! 

I wanted to have a bit more embellishment around the circle so I added the flowers and some Art-stones from Prima. I also sprinkled both small and large flakes glitter in white and white with iridescent effect. 

I want the word for the chosedn color on my ATC and named the edition Pink Spring. I just love the small letter stickers from Adornit. I bought lots of them a couple of years ago. I´m not sure if you can find them still?

Last I added small flowers from Prima and some glitter.

:: Cards with beautiful Prima supplies ::

Pyssloteket have a wide range of products from Prima! Guess who love's that ;) Me!!
My card today is a bit larger than I usually make. It´s about 12x22 cm. I used the papers called Rose Dreams and Stone Quartz. I used a edge punch from Martha Stewart to get my nice scalloped edge.
I used my sewing machine around all the edges and I also used a stencil from Craftres Workshop and Heavy Gesso from Prima. Behind all flowers and embellishments I have a black doilie from Doodlebug Design. You find doilies, flowers, papers and all mediums at Pyssloteket.

I love layers and textures on my work! Here I used the larger ones of Primas Art Stones. I colored them with Prima Color Bloom Storm Cloud. I also used some feathers I found on my desk and I die-cutted leafs with a die from Prima.

I´m so happy that soon Pyssloteket will have a lot of Chipboards! I love working with Chipboards! Here I painted the words with Prima Heavy Gesso. 

To get the flowers more melted in with the background I used both Color Bloom Spray and Gesso on them. I used beautiful flowers from Prima Rose Quartz collection called Rosa Verona and Thassos. I also made a much more clean and simple card with the same papers I only added a piece from Grateful Heart. I used a die from Cheery Lynn Design called Dutch Scallop Squares. The cute Fairy is a Chipboards from Wycinanka.

:: Easter ATC´s ::

Last weekend I was at a crop in Avesta. I alsomost never attend challenges at crops beacuse I´m such a slow scrapper. This time one of the challenges was to make 4-10 ATC´s and the theme was "a lot". You was to add as many stuff you could on your cards. That I couldn´t resist!

 I decided to make my cards in a Easter theme and I chosed a green, yellow and white color scheme.

 I made eight ATC´s and turned in four of them for the challenge. It was also a organized swap at the same time so I got four new cards for my four Easter cards.

 I have some older Easter papers left from my time as a designer with Inkido. They are really nice! I punched out details from some vintage pictures and added them to my bottle caps in silver. At the crop we got a goodiebag and I used a paper from Prima from that goodiebag.

I also used white feathers, cheesecloth, lace, twine, gold thread, word stickers, Stickles, flowers, caviar beads, rhinestones, glass half pearls, glitter and gold flitter. I think I managed to add a lot :)

:: Layout for Pysslotekets April challenge ::

We´re having a challenge at Pysslotekets Facebook group and I made a inspiration layout after my own sketch and color scheme. I always think it´s harder to create after my own sketches than others?

This time the colors made me leave the romantic flower style for a bit and work with lots of contrasts.
The photos are from Instagram and a day when Viggo, me and Molle played in the garden.
I started with a black cardstock. I used two different stencils from Tim Holtz called Striped and Splotches. For the stripes I used Gesso and for the Splotches I used Dylusion Paint Sqeezed Orange. Then I cut strips from Bo Bunny Life in Colors, Kaisercarft Hanami garden and Bo Bunny Petal Lane. I played a bit with a black and a white pen. I did some fussy cutting with the paper called Posies from Bo Bunny. I colored some parts of the flowers with a Copic pen. I painted my chipboards from Blue Fern Studios with the orange paint I used with the Stencil. Last I sprinkled Distress Paint Picket Fence and Dylusion Paint Sqeezed Orange over my page.

:: ATC`s - Purple Rain ::

I really love making ATC´s! Still :) This time I made a edition for Pyssloteket. We have a two weeks Distress Paint theme at our blog.

I really like all textures and layers you get when you create in this style.

I started with Distress Paint Shaded Lilac and Peacock Feathers. I painted my background randomly.
Then I used a Stencil with dots and used Prima Clear Gesso. Before the Gesso dried I sprinkled loose glitter over the dots.

You find really nice dies from Memory Box at Pyssloteket and I used two different. I used Loopy Rings and Fresh Foliage. Then I added lave, a bottle cap, glassbeads, roses and sewing thread. I also used my favorite detail on ATC´s and that is a word stickers. Here I used some Chit Chat stickers from Tim Holtz. I didn´t wanted my bottle cap to be that shiny so I painted them a bit with Distress Paint Peacock Feather. Last I sprinkled Distress paint Black Soot,

:: ATC swap Hänglar & Stänglar ::

I made this edition with ATC´s for a group swap with friendes. The theme was Hänglar and Stänglar. It´s a stamp brand that now is retired. I love my stamp collection I own from this brand!

I started with only stamping the head of this cutie. Then I colored all my nine heads with Copics.

For my background I used wrapping paper you get from the flowers shops when you buy flowers. This one had old photos and text all in black and white. I dripped and sprinkled green Acrylic Paint.

Then I layered lots of fun stuff as feathers, cheese cloth and lace.

From the same flower wrapping paper I made wings. I also added white flowers from Prima, glass beads from Panduro and lots of glitter.

:: ATC´s - Romantic Flutter ::

Today I have some pink and cute ATC´s to show you. The words on my cards are from 7 Dots Studio and the Fortune-teller collection.
I really like how they turned out! Hope you do too :)

I started with romantic patterned paper from Panduro. Then I added mesh lace and Cheese cloth and then even more lace. Then I added a pink feather and a die-cut in silver made from Tall Bamboo from Memory Box. You find dies from Memory Box at Pyssloteket!

I punched out Butterflies from a Blue Fern Studios paper. Then I glued them in a bottle cap and over the paper I added a plastic thing that I don´t know what it´s called in English? The pink flowers are from Prima and from the calendar collection. This flower is the January flower and called Carnation. In the middle of the pink flowers I used Rhinestones from Marianne Design White glass beads from Panduro and the others are finds from my drawers. 

I really like this romantic, sweet and almost enchanting look!

:: ATC´s - Edgar Allan Poe ::

I first made this ATC´s for a swap. Unfortunately I was so stressed out over them! One card took me six hours to make so I backed out from the swap. The theme was Allan Edgar Poe and the style vintage.

Finally I ended up with four different cards. 

I really like the words! I do not suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it /Allan Edgar Poe

On this card I used brown shades and metallic details. Envelopes from Pyssloteket and beads from Panduro.

Lots of layers! Die-cuts from Spellbinders, lace, paper from Bo Bunny and metallic lace from Tim Holtz. The sculls was a gift from my friend Anna and I really like them! 

The next card is almost the same besides different metallic lace and some more details from Spellbinders. And of course a different photo of Edgar.
