 I still have  My Birthday Linky can click here  to go to the main post :) I would be so happy if you like to join with me :)


As I mention you on this post, that I make a challenge between me and  Billie Anderson from Ink On My Finger now is our WEEK #8, Billie has choosen the theme this time, we will challenge to make a Watercolored Background based idea is from this link

As I dont have Gesso also I choose water color paper to make my card. Here is the result :

This is a card from Julie Campbell that we CASE-ing or our inspiration:


How I made my card:

1.I gave the light red and yellow Kuretake G. Tambi ink on my paper  gave much water and let it flown. After dry I gave some splatter stamp in the light red color. (I am newbie at making splatter also still not good enough... LOL)
2. Stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts (2 differents) with black ink.
3. Used my goodies "tag" I have ever got from Vicki in USA (dear Vicki many thanks for those lovely tags :))
4. Adhere a bit Washi tape and some flower puncher paper in black and one heart gem stone.

Truly this is not my style I only CASE-ing the card on that link and I think I like the result...what do you think?

  1. Lovely cards, Monika! I like your watercolour background - you did a great job on the CASE! I need to try watercolour again! Your butterflies are soooo beautiful - I love butterflies! Your colours are so pretty and I like the vellum sentiment!

    I enjoyed looking at all your cards and goodies you received for your birthday! What a lovely display with them all together!

    P.S. Did you notice on my blog today - I used the red felt shapes you sent me - the stars - on my Christmas shaker tag! I think they are perfect! I mentioned your name - thank you very much! I will use the other goodies at some point and will mention you again so you will see them!

  2. Happy Birthday! Love the butterfly card. Pretty colors. Thank you for joining us at Come And Get It challenge. Bunny DT

  3. Hi friend, I love the Monika / Billie card. Mine does look a lot like yours and our inspiration card of Julies.. Mine will post at midnight tonight so cant wait to see what you say. I love yours.
    I like the butterfly card and the zig zag card also. Great colors and vellum is always nice touch with out taking away from the images. Sweet cards. Hugs.

  4. You've made some lovely cards my friend. I liked your water color challenge card but my fav was the butterflies. Simply gorgeous!

  5. What a fab card! You've made some beautiful watercoloring, no doubt!

  6. Your card is beautiful, and the butterflies are so gorgeously coloured! And you lucky thing, having such lovely creative and generous friends all over the world!

  7. eine wundervolle Schmetterlingskarte hast tdu gezaubert ... da wird sicherlich ein Lächeln im Gesicht deiner Freundin sein!
    Die Watercolorcard ist nicht meins, ich weiß nur nicht warum oder was mich stört...
    ganz tolle Goodies hast du bekommen (nicht nur von mir) ich wünsche dir auf jeden Fall viel Freude damit und beim "Verbasteln"
    LG hellerlittle

  8. Die Schmetterlingskarte ist typisch Monika!!!
    Sehr schön.
    Sie gesällt mir sehr gut.
    Die Hintergrundkarte ist nicht so mein Fall,
    ich kann allerdings auch nicht sagen warum.
    Und die vielen Geschenke, die du bekommen hast!!!
    Du hast sie verdient.
    LG Flo

  9. Lovely cards today Monika. Your watercolour background is very pretty and love your butterflies... has my card arrived? I sent it 2 weeks before your birthday!

  10. Wow you have been busy!! Seriously Monika what wonderful work you have done.. I would like to send you your birthday card so let me know your address so I can send it on its way.
    Oh what great work you so Monika! I just love it.. However I think I need to subscribe to email. I am not getting your updates... So I will make sure to keep up-to-date. Hugs from Michigan!!!

  11. I love the random look of your first card and how you avoided it looking just messy. This is random in an orderly fashion:)
    The same goes for your butterfly card. Vellum is brilliant for making place for a sentiment without covering the background too much. A good idea for me as I typically forget to plan a space for the sentiment (when will I finally learn from my mistakes??)

  12. Fantastic cards Monika..Loz

  13. Oh wow Monika!! Your watercoloring looks really stunning!! Such a wonderful take on your CASE card my friend and glad you can use the tags!! :) The colorful butterflies looks really amazing with your coloring!! Best wishes for your friend! Thanks for the inspiration today!!

    P.S. I sent you a birthday card, I sure hope you receive it soon! HUGS

  14. FAB cards, Monika! Thanks for joining us at the Waffle Flower Challenge, too! :)

  15. So pretty! Love your inky techniques. Thank you so much for playing along with us over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog this week :)

  16. The butterflies you colored are so beautiful, Monika! What a gorgeous background you created. The sentiment on vellum really sets it off perfectly>

  17. You done a pretty job today! Love your water coloring and CASED so beautifully!!! Those butterflies are very colorful and bright with a vellum sentiment!!! Enjoy your crafty goodies!

  18. I've been trying to work out what to do for the Waffle Flower Challenge. Your butterflies match the photo so perfectly, they are awesome!! Just love the watercolour background you created for your first card too, goes so well with the sentiment stamp, very pretty. So glad to see your still enjoying your birthday. What a shame all our birthdays don't last for a month!! Wouldn't that be fun??!

  19. Beautiful cards Monika! I love the butterfly one, so colorful!
