Inky Impressions 2nd Design Team Call

The Inky impressions are having a DT call. I thought I'd try out since I've been planning to do so for a while now. I started on a beautiful altered project, but I can't finish it yet so I'll show you what it looks like now - it's almost done, but I'm waiting to get the Tim Holtz clear crackle paint to put on the lid and then I want the image on top. I've made my own embellishment from a piece of mesh fabric that I distressed.

But the official projects I'm applying with are these. It's supposed to be one favourite card and a project, so here goes:

My fav card for the time being is this one. It was made for a sketchchallenge and here's the sketch:

I made a pretty creative interpretation if I may say so myself. I'm very proud of this card since distressing, sewing and Magnolia aren't my specialties. I'm quite proud of the golden flower. I made the embellishment myself by stamping and embossing a red paperbrad. I also distressed the flowers to match better. The image is coloured with promarkers.

The other - non-card - project is a post-it holder. I absolutely love this image. I only had one since I got it from a friend. It was stamped on waterpaper (or whatever it's called) and I have coloured it with tombows and a waterbrush. It gives a totally different look than promarkers. I like both looks and these two projects show my colouringskills. I also love my cuttlebug embossing folders as you can see:)
I think these two projects show my style pretty well.

I just wanted to show you the altered box I've been making for a couple of days. The lid is lowered and I think it would look awesome with some crackled paint over the paper and then Tilda on top. I haven't yet decided where to put embellishments and how to put it all together. I didn't want to rush it since I think the box will look amazing when it's done properly. Don't you just love the old style Tilda?

With all these Tildas you might think I'm a huge Magnolia fan, but the truth is I just got my second, third fourth and fifth magnolia about 2 months ago. I guess they are really growing on me. I always thought cute animals were my fav, but it's so hard to choose now with all the cute girlstamps!
