Simply Neutrals # 30

Taking part in Wendy`s

Tuesday Party again, with two of my Neutral made hearts.

Hearts are needed all over, showing a little heart and a little love
to friends, and family, and also strangers, makes this world a
better place . 

I`m happy to say, that so many shows me both heart and love, in our 
blogging community, and also among so many of my FB friends.
Thank you from my heart for all your loving commends, for support
and kindness,

beautiful Simply  Neutral , blogposts to watch over there. 

Sending you all a big hug.
Love from Dorthe 


Yes ,-our new system, on the That`s Crafty Challenge blog starts this months.
The idea is to create two separate creations, but mainly using the same products .
I cheated a bit, as I uses a few other products than on my  "My delicate wings " first piece.

But mainly it is the same procedure this time :  
I used one of the new paints , Bright Blue , mixed with a bit of white, on the panel, and letting it dry .Then the lovely stencil , Mandala was used together with the Metallic Ice Blue ,paint, dabbed through it, twice , -drying in between each layer.

The difference is that I this time couldn`t resist using one of the newer stamps , the
text stamp on the background, and furthermore ,before stamping it directly, I adhered a piece of tea dyed tissue paper.

The butterfly and leaf were both covered in the Metallic Ice Blue and details added with orange paint 
and black Posca pen, Silver threads were adhered to the flower, and a part of one of Lynne`s Affirmations stamped onto a rest of the dyes tissue.
The leaf was adhered with a piece of painted lace under, and butterfly and text, also adhered with the 
Multi Purpose Craft Adhesive .
That`s it for my second Challenge Creation this months.

The winners will receive wonderful gift , --
randomly drawn winner will receive a £30 voucher for the online shop. In addition to this, our chosen top 3 will receive a That's Crafty! stencil (own choice)

I hope to see some of your creations, there.

With January already out of it`s first week, we are ready, again, to enjoy creating and playing,
and for this weeks Challenge  :  "Feeling Blue - mainly blue "  I enjoyed creating this little panel.
I used one of the new paints , Bright Blue , mixed with a bit of white, on the panel, and letting it dry .
Then the lovely stencil , Mandala was used together with the Metallic Ice Blue ,paint, dabbed through it, twice , -drying in between each layer.

On the other side of panel, I used the tree stencil , first with Potting Soil, and after with Hydrangea, to achieve this dreamy tone.

The butterfly from the new Textures Collection set, was stamped directly onto the background, and after also on white card stock. I painted it with a even more soft tone of the blue and white mix.
Draw up the lines from the stamp with a grey fine liner, and painted the spots , white , then adhered to the panel on top of the already stamped ,one.

The lovely " harlequin "pattern from one of the bigger stencils, I added here and there, also with Hydrangea.
Laces were also painted with the rest of the light blue mix, and adhered to the panel . One of the tiny
boys, from Tim Holz Christmas Paper Dolls, found a place to sit on the lace -holding onto the tree, an d his butterfly in his hand via a silvery thread , from a Christmas gift.He got wings I cut, to suit him,- from a Bits and Pieces Butterflies sheet . They were painted white, and details made with the grey fine liner, -also on his dress I highlighted the details.

Half an affirmation from one of Lynne`s sheets , was stamped onto a piece of painted paper,and
adhered to panel under the boy. I added white dots , around the perimeter , and made some berries to the tree- and the feelers on the butterfly was also defined more, with a fine liner.

This finished my sample for this : feeling Blue , challenge. If you want to play, please visit here  for more details .
The winner will receive this wonderfulgift , to use in the shop !!

I hope to see some of your creations, there.

Hugs and love

Already second of January 2018 ,
so fast the days have gone, - it really makes sense , trying to live in the moment,
when experiencing , the days just fly off, one after the other.

Yesterday my husband and I went for a walk, late afternoon, along the shore -line
here in Rønne. 
The wind was heavy , and the waves almost exploded when reaching the 
stone wall, it looked amazing.

And as we came closer to the town, sun started to go down ,and the light got darker.
If you click my photos, you can see more details .

This card I created for a friend, using a stampset designed 
by Donna , you can find it if clicking the link .

I wish for us all , that the new year, will send angels, to keep us under the wings ,
taking care of us, for a healthy and happy 2018 .

Have a lovely rest of the week.

Hugs and love,
