Quick Tag - DT-Work for Country View Challenges

Hallo zusammen, schön, dass ihr bei mir vorbeischaut! 
Hier ist mein zweiter Beitrag zu unserer Februar Challenge "30 Minuten oder darunter" bei Country View Challenges. Meine Herren, das ist wirklich eine schwierige Sache, das mit der kurzen Zeit! Das Tag, das ich gemacht habe, ist mein dritter Versuch, etwas ansprechendes innerhalb dieser Zeit zu machen.
Hello dear friends, nice to have you here today!
This is my second post for the February Challenge "30 minutes or under" over at Country View Challenges. Boy, this is a very hard challenge for me! The tag I made is the 3rd trial to make something pretty in time!


Hier seht ihr, wie ich´s gemacht habe. Wichtig, um es in der entsprechenden Zeit zu schaffen war, alle Sachen, die ich verwenden wollte, bereit zu legen, bevor ich auf den Startknopf gedrückt habe. 
Here you can see, how I made it. Important was, to gather all things, I needed for it, before I pushed the button.

Zuerst habe ich den Hintergrund mit Distress Inks in weathered wood, seedless preserve, tumbled glass und wild honey gestaltet. Die Technik kennt ihr sicher alle: Stempelkissen auf der non-sticky- back Unterlage nebeneinander auftragen, etwas Wasser darauf sprühen und das Tag durchziehen. Trocknen und so oft wiederholen, bis ihr mit dem Ergebnis zufrieden seid.
First I created the background with Distress Inks in weathered wood, seedless preserve, tumbled glass und wild honey. The technique is well known I think: scrub your inkpads over the non-sticky-pad, spray some water on top and put your tag on top. Dry it and repeat the process until you are happy with the result. 






Als nächstes habe ich eine dünne Schicht Distress Stain picket fence darüber gegeben um einen ausgebleichten Look zu kreieren.
Next I put a thin layer Distress Stain picket fence on top to create a faded look.




Nun noch schnell die Ränder mit tumbled glass einfärben und mit einer meiner Lieblingsschablonen von Tim Holtz, Latticework, die Oberfläche gestalten. Dazu habe ich DI vintage photo benutzt.
Now a quick coloring of the edges with DI tumbled glass and then a layer with one of my most beloved stencils from Tim Holtz, Latticework on top. I took DI vintage photo.




Als nächstes noch schnell ein paar RubOns von 7gypsies....
Next step was a quick add of 7gypsies RubOns.....



....dann konnte ich schon mit der Ausgestaltung beginnen. Dazu habe ich mir ein Bildchen (photobooth, Tim Holtz) ausgesucht, auf Karton montiert, ein kleines Zierdeckchen halbiert, ein wenig mit DI eingefärbt und aufgeklebt, ein Stück Schnur drapiert und mit eingefärbten Blättchen und einer Blüte alles arrangiert und montiert.
.....then I was ready to design my tag. I mounted one of the pics from photobooth (Tim Holtz) on cardboard, cut a doily in half, colored it with DI, wrapped a piece of cord around and arranged and mounted the pic, some colored leaves and a blossom on top.







Jetzt nur noch die passenden Wörter (Tim Holtz, big chat) ein wenig einfärben und aufkleben.
Now I only had to add some suitable words (Tim Holtz, big chat), which I colored at the edges.



Ich hatte tatsächlich noch knapp 5 Minuten übrig, also habe ich noch schnell ein paar Hintergrundstempel herausgesucht und mit Archival Ink Jet Black hier und da aufgestempelt.
Now there where even 5 minutes left, so I took some background stamps and so I randomly stamped  the background with Archival Ink Jet Black.




Die Wörter habe ich mit einem wasservermalbaren Stift schwarz umrandet, damit sie etwas mehr abstechen. Und damit war ich fertig - genau 30 Minuten ......puh!
I surrounded the words with a water soluble pencil to make them pop out more and that´s it! Exactly 30 minutes .......pew!







Here are some close ups:



So, das wars für heute! Ich hoffe, mein kleines Tag gefällt euch.
Nun holt doch auch ein paar eurer Bastelsachen heraus und macht eine schnelle Kleinigkeit! Ihr könnt bis zum Ende des Monats mitmachen und mit ein bisschen Glück einen £20.- Gutschein gewinnen!

Mixed Media Birthday Card

Hello all, welcome to my blog!
I hope the new year is going good so far!
Today I want to share with you my second project for the January challenge over at Country View Challenges with the easy, comfortable theme "Anything goes!"
As it is the 15th today, you have enough time to join in with the challenge!
It´s worth to do, because you can win a £ 20.- gift voucher for the shop!

So here now my card:


 Sorry, this time no step x step photos, I simply forgot to take some. 
I used many mediums, from texture paste acrylic paints, black and white Gesso over to several different stamps, metallic wax and white posca pen for details.


As my focal point I used a needle felted heart I made somewhen ago. I cut this in the middle, glued it down and surrounded it with a black marker and the white posca pen.
I stamped a sentiment (from heart all the best), added a flower from Prima and done.





Well, now grab all your stash and make something beautiful for our challenge!
