LOVE for several challenges and Welcome to 3 new Members


How exciting - I can welcome 3 new members to my blog! I am happy to see you here. Let me greet you properly

Mrs. Duck - otherwise known as Ang

 with a welcome picture:


It is a sculpture by Philip Haas - quite cool and recently exhibited in the Bronx Botanic Garden. This one is titeled "Winter" - I thought its appropriate for the season.... The artist basically turned an oil painting into a sculpture - I guess one can call it CASEing - below is the original painting by Arcimboldo


I hope you like your pictures and perhaps more important - you continue to enjoy what I do here ;) .....

Like this card I made for several challenges:



The tree die is by Memory Box - Twiggy Tree. I idi not die cut through the end of the stem and then made it longer with a craft knife. I sponged the tree. - Note that some af the branches go OVER THE EDGE.... The letters are by Papertrey - Block alphabet die. The little birds are from IO.


CASual Fridays - over the edge
Time Out challenge - Love and/or Friendship
Oozak - Anything goes white with one color
Bizzy Becs - "LOVE/FRIENDSHIP"....... 


Have a great evening and thank you all for visiting and your lovely comments - they warm my heart - especially nice, given how cold it is outside ;)

Schön,schön,schön!!!
Übrigens habe ich die Karte auch nicht verstanden, bis ich verschiedene Links von Michaela erhalten habe, in denen per Bild ganz genau erklärt wird, wie man diese Karten macht. Soll ich sie dir schicken?
LG und schönes Wochenende - ich werde wie verrückt Olympia gucken.

Your card is gorgeous and very clever. The tree sculpture is really fascinating.

Hanna said...

Eine wundervolle Idee die Stanze als 'L' einzusetzen!!! Die Karte gefällt mir ausgesprochen gut!
Ich schicke Dir ganz liebe Grüße aus dem Westen Deutschlands, der diesen Winter bislang keine einzige Schneeflocke gesehen hat!
Herzlichst,
Hanna

Oh, look at that creative way you used that tree die! I am always looking for ways to stretch my dies and stamps but I would have never thought of that! Thanks so much! You are brilliant! Have a great and creative weekend!

Barbara said...

Very creative card - I love how the tree trunk continues into the letter and I'm always a sucker for the ombré look. Well done!

Very cool! I love how you turned the tree into the L and the sponging is such a great touch! Thanks for playing along at ATCAS. :)

I love how you elongated the tree and how you separated the cardinals. What a great take on the challenge. So glad you shared this fabulous card with us at ATCAS this week

So very creative, Cornelia. Love how you die-cut the tree and made the sentiment. Love the inking too, crisp and clean my friend. :-)
