“Kreativsüchtig” Craft Magazine … Happy News!

You guys, exciting news!! I am freakin’ happy to have two cards published in a craft magazine!! It’s German and it’s called “Kreativsüchtig Magazin” (‘addicted to creativity’ magazine) and that is one of my cards at the bottom of the cover!! 😍💥 I used Lawn Fawn stamps and dies for the galaxy shaker card and Winnie & Walter stamps for the Christmas card. I suggest you go and pre-order your copy now! 😉🤗 Once they are gone, they’re gone. There is a list of places to order over here on Kreativsüchtig Magazin’s FB page.

Monochromatic Card with Hero Arts

Hello and happy World Card Making Day!! Are you crafting or meeting crafty friends today?

I am dropping in to share a monochromatic card that I recently made. Now, monochromatic doesn’t exactly scream stunning designs, does it? At least I often think of cards with only one color as not too interesting. Long story short, I was wrong. I have seen many monochromatic cards in the meantime that were absolutely amazing!! A few of them over on A Blog Named Hero (it’s a challenge blog dedicated to and sponsored by Hero Arts). I also shared a grey-in-grey card on Instagram a couple of weeks ago that I liked and my followers seemed to really like it, too. I was a bit surprised how much, to be honest. Social media can be quite surprising in that way, right?! 😀

Anyways, I really wanted to do some relaxing watercoloring and inspired by the current challenge theme “Monochromatic” I made a card with several different blue watercolor paints, including a very dark Indigo Blue and also a bit of white.

THIS IS MY CARD:

Monochromatic Card Hero Arts

Before watercoloring I splattered some masking fluid onto my watercolor cardstock for the big fluffy snow flakes. For the trees and mountains I stamped down images from the “CL973 Road Trip” stamp set from Hero Arts. The small sentiment is from their “CL911 Acts of Kindness” set.

I will definetely give monochromatic cards another go, it’s a great way to just play around with my watercolors. And since I recently took Debby Hughes Online Card Class “Color Theory” I am even more motivated to do so. So watch out for more tone in tone cards from me in the future! 😉

Until then, have an amazing day! ♥
