WEEK 4 - Billie and Monika background - Flower Background and A SHE ART Card

As I mention you on this post, that I make a challenge between me and  Billie Anderson from Ink On My Finger this time is our WEEK #4, Billie has choosen the theme this time, we will challenge to make a Flower Background on our card.

I stamped the flower with pink ink, and the other one with black ink and colored with yellow Kuretake Ganzai Tambi Watercolor and other flower only with black ink. This is the stamp I used also this is from my old set Hero Arts Stamp CL266 Mix and Match Elements

Here is the result from my Background:

As I want to covered the bad area (see above, I stamped the flower in black two times...also the shape is not more perfect LOL) also I stamped and embossed with Zing pink embossing powder the sentiment Happy Birthday.

Challenges for my card are:

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #302: (sdh a. p.)

For my second card I love to join the Inkspirational Challenge the theme this time is She Art or Image of A Woman. It was not easy for me I search all Woman Image in my stamp set..hmm not found something fit...until I found the lovely Image I have ever got from Arlene (at A Bit of This and That)...dear Arlene it was long time ago you sent me this lovely Image and now I used it with proud on my card :)

For making the Background it was not my comfort Zone..... really (I am newbie at making splatter :) )...also I gave black water color on my white paper and with stencil I try to make the blue Splatter on my Card.

Thanks for looking and happy monday :)




  1. Hallo Monika,
    beide Karten gefallen mir gut, die untere mit der Dame finde ich noch etwas besser als die obere. Ich kann nicht sagen weshalb. Vielleicht liegt es daran, dass die untere nicht so "ordentlich" ist, eher genial kreativ (hihi - wenn es das gibt!!!)
    Dir eine stressfreie Woche,

  2. These are fabulous, Monika! Your floral background is so pretty! And I really love your second card - your splatters look amazing - great image too! Love the random stamping on this background!

  3. Both fabulous cards Monika..Loz

  4. Gorgoeus colour combo for your bg and I think you did a great job at using spaltters. Thanks for joining us at Uniko and Ink

  5. Two very lovely cards, Monika! Jo x

  6. I really like both of these! The colors are great in the first card and the image is awesome in the second.

  7. Monika, I am loving the background you made. Awesome look and that pop of darker pink in the sentiment is awesome touch. Beautiful..
    The other card is a great look. Nicely done..
    My water mark you asked about I paid a company years ago to make it for me.. I don't have computer smarts to do it.. Sorry.

  8. Both cards are really lovely Monika.

  9. Those neon flowers in the first card are really pretty! And that second card - WOW!!! I just love how vintage and retro it looks. Great designs!

  10. More gorgeous and yummy cards Monika.
    Love the background you've created on the ATSM one and I'm thrilled to see you've linked up at Uniko Studio too
    thanks so much

  11. Monika, your cards are beautiful, lovely background as always! and your woman card with the splotches is fabulous!! Take care, Donna

  12. Really wonderful creations here Monika!! Love how you've created your backgrounds!! :) HUGS

  13. love both of your cards, Monika! Fabulous background on your first card and a wonderful effect on your she-art card! Thanks for playing again with us at the ATSM challenge!

  14. Artistic & beautiful, Monika! My hubby was in Germany many, many years ago when he was in the service & his daughter was born there. I'd love to see it sometime--very different than when he was there, I'm sure.

  15. I really don't know how how to use my small stamps, but now I know - to create my own background... We'll see how that goes. I think your flower background looks very retro cool and the sentiment has a modern twist.
    And I'm really impressed by what you achieved on your second card. It's so different from your usual style, I wouldn't have recognized it as one of your cards, but doesn't it feel great to step out of your comfort zone when the card turns out looking this amazing!!

  16. Great cards! Thank you for joining us at Cupcake Inspirations this week.

  20. Monika, your flower background is lovely, especially with the pop of deeper pink in the sentiment. Your She Art card is marvelous. From what I see, your splatters are splendid! Thank you for sharing your creativity in the Ink gallery!

  24. Gorgeous inking Monika! I think you've captured the colours and patterns from the dress wonderfully! Thanks for playing along with the Runway Inspired Challenge ;-)

  25. Monika, I'd forgotten I'd sent that to you. It's from a CD that I don't think Hero Arts puts out anymore.

    And I do love it.

    What a wonderful collage you've made. HUGS, Arlene

  26. Awesome job on that background! Thanks for joining us on the Runway! :)
