This teabox I made a while back. Because I didn't have a digital camera, I could not show it. This is the first picture I made with my camera. Unfortunately It doesn't show the coloring of the picture. I guess I have to practise some more with the camera.
I made several of these boxes, each with another picture in the middle. The picture in the middle is regular stamping, colored with aquarel-pencils. The box itself is of wood. I put metalic tape on the box and worked the metal with different colors of alcohol ink. Finished it all with a little ribbon.
Thanks for watching and till next time !

Please!, Please!, - Turn off Word Verification!!

There is an anti word verification campaign on the go at the moment. I saw it at dawn's blog and I agree her statement. Word Verification is such a hindrance especially for us blog hoppers who love visiting as much blogs as possible. Untill the blogmessage at Dawn's I didn't realise it was turned on! Of course I checked it out and now it is off.
I want you visitors and friends to feel welcome at my blog. And I like it when you leave a message... gives me such a wonderfull feeling when someone gives me a nice reaction at the things I show. So join us, and say no to word verification !


my colleague has become a father of a baby-girl. On their card (front) was a butterfly and her name. So I made this card to congratulate the parents on their new-born.
In the end I thought this was a little bit too much, so I removed the purplefiber. And that was a lot better. I hope they like it too :-)

Thanks for watching!

technique: batik


* papier/ kaart
* versamark of witte pigment inkt
* clear embossingpoeder
* heatgun
* stempels naar keuze
* 2 of 3 kleuren stempelinkt
* absorberend papier, bijv. krant of van ouderwets kladblok
* strijkijzer

Druk de stempel diverse malen af op je papier met versamark of witte pigment inkt. Strooi over de nog natte inkt de embossingpoeder. Schud te kaart en/of geef tegen de achterkant een tik om overtollig poeder van de kaart af te krijgen. Het overtollige poeder kun je weer terug in het potje van je embospoeder doen en voor een andere keer gebruiken. Laat het poeder smelten met behulp van de heatgun.

(zie techniekbeschrijving van embossen)

Kleur nu de kaart (direct-to-paper of via make-up sponsje) met verschillende kleuren inkt. Is de kaart gekleurd zoals gewenst, dan leg je op de kaart een vel absorberend papier (kladpapier).

Beweeg nu een hete schrijkijzer over het kladpapier. De hitte van de strijkijzer smelt het embossing en het kladpapier absorbeert deze. Wanneer de embossing van de kaart is gestreken laat het kladpapier gewoon los (daarvoor plakt deze aan de kaart vast...). De kaart is klaar en kan naar wens worden afgewerkt.
Bedankt voor het kijken en tot de volgende keer !

* cardstock
* versamark or white pigment ink
* clear embossingpowder
* heatgun
* stamps
* 2 or 3 colours of stampingink
* absorbing paper (like paper of newspaper)
* iron

Stamp your image on the cardstock with versamark or white pigment ink. Put over the (wet) image the embossingpowder. Remove the access by a little push with your finger on the back of the card. The access can be used an other time, so put it back in the embossingpowder-container. Embos (see technique embossing)

Colour the card (direct-to-paper or with use of sponge with the different colours of stampingink. When you like the colouring stop. Put on the card a piece of absorbing paper. Go with the iron over the absorbing paper. The heat of the iron will make the embossing melt and the absorbing paper absorb the embossing. When all the embossing is melted away the absorbing paper will go off the card easilly (won't stick on the card anymore). The batik is finished and the card can be finished any way you want to.
Thanks for watching and till next time !
