Birthday card with one of the crazy dogs

I have two favourite crazy dogs in Tim's Crazy Dog stamp set. One of them is this Vizsla because I'm Hungarian and the Vizsla is Hungarian too. The other one is the Miniature Schnauzer or at least I think that is a Schnauzer.

Canvas with a huge real shell

I was looking for the ideas how to keep our summer treasures - especially our huge (more than 12cm) seashell - where they are not hidden in a box, where we can see them in their full beauty, where they can be emphasized. 

So I made this 20x20 cm canvas.

Colour pop - black and white canvas with red umbrella

Hello everybody and happy Monday! I'm here with a black and white canvas with a splash of colour, a bold red umbrella. For this canvas, my inspiration was my previous black and white canvas with Tim's umbrella man.

And since I made two Paris cards last week, I insisted on the Paris theme too.




Although it was a primed canvas, I put one layer of gesso on the surface and when it was dry I tapped the different shades of grey onto the canvas with a sponge. 


It's quite minimalist but I like it this way, so I didn't want to ruin it with adding other cutouts or text.


And since my background is ombré, I would like to join the Simon Says Monday Challenge: Ombré
