Guest Designer at CTB, THEME CHALLENGE (TRAVEL) and a Bird (Oriole) Card for DAD

Another Saturday it means we have a new challenge at Catch The Bug  this week  the theme is: THEME CHALLENGE: can join us and you will have a chance to win some lovely and cute Images from Bugaboo Store.

I made my design paper by my self using my old collection of HERO ARTS "Paris" stamp set and I embossed it with ZING Embossing powder like you see here:

Here is the result closed up,it looks like that black paper not more plain black right :) I really love the result :)

I choose this cute Image from Bugaboo named: Girlz - Car ride and I colored the Image with Kuretake G. Tambi watercolor set and the hair I colored with copic marker grey and black. The cloud, I sponged it with blue distress ink and then with wet finger I tap some part and the color was gone it get white :) easy peasy :)

As I dont want to make two post also I put this DAD card on this post too :) 

My Dad love so much bird and he has much bird cage at his home in Jakarta, also Pap, here is the card I made for you.. :)

I still learning to coloring with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi water color also on this Oriole Image from Stamplorations I choose the color Orange and yellow and blended it at the body of the bird (its not perfect but I am happy with the result). I use also the Artplorations Stencil named Retro Circles and did the background strip paper by sponging it with blue distress ink, after I masked the area that I need still white.

I use washi tape in the same color like the cloud. 

 Here is the complete Photo of my card:

  34. Great w/c Monika on the oriole bird and sponging on the background.
    Thanks for linking it up at STAMPlorations. :)

  35. WOW, these cards are stunning, Monika! I really love your embossing on the first 2 and your Dad's Day card is painted so beautifully!

  36. LOVELY masking and layers! Fun use of washi.
    Thanks for linking up at STAMPlorations:)

  37. Wow! That colorful Paris background I believe is one of my favorites! It has a random yet organized style, which I always admire when I see someone having succeeded with. My attempts usually end up looking messy. The background looks so well with the Bugaboo image.
    And I'm sure your dad lives his card, love the colors of the bird, very well done watercoloring it, the inked sky looks super and the whole layout is brilliant.

  38. Great card - love the way you've created the background.

    Thanks for joining us at Little Claire.
