Art Journey Challenge #49: Little Squares

It's been a while, but I've actually done nothing creative these last months.  As we came back from our vacation in Macedonia last week, I thought it was time for some stamping this weekend.  I've looked on Pinterest for some inspiration and I came up with this card for het Art Journey Challenge: Little Squares. I've first created a background with distress ink on my craft sheet (Chipped Sapphire, Weatered Wood, Frayed Burlap and Gathered Twigs).  After drying this I started stamping with Archival Ink (Coffee and Cobalt) and Color Box (Frost White).  Cutting out the squares, stamping the swirls, glueing everything together and this was the result.

Orange #7

For my last orange card, I've used the leftovers from my other cards and stamped flowers on them.
I was in a cheap mood and didn't spoil anything from my backgrounds :)  These flowers are from a stamping set which I bought in the Wibra and costed very little.  The lovely sentiment is from Differnt Colors ('In a year are always special moments... this is one of them').

Orange #6

I'm not so happy with this card. Because I wanted everything to go together I painted the cardstock, but it started to curl and I thought it would go away when it dried, but unfortunately it didn't :( 
The flowers are a Crafty Individuals stamp and the sentiment is from Different Colors (Every day has something, but today is special!).

Orange #5

This is a card I'm very pleased about :)  I absolutely love this La Blanche stamp, but I don't think I've used it before.  Because I didn't want it to become to busy,  I only colourd the flowers with distress markers.  The background is an Aladine stamp (mariage set),  stamped with Versamark.  The sentiment is from the Crafty Secrets set 'Glamour Girls'.

Orange #4

I have this stamp from Crafty Individuals for quite a while.  I think this must be one of the first stamps I had.  It perfectly combines 2 of my hobbies: stamping and birdwatching.  The sentiment is from a Crafty Secrets set 'Bird Lovers'.

Orange #3

My third orange card is quite simple.  I created the background with a spotted stamp from A Capella in different distress inks.  The focal stamp is from Stampers Anonymous.  Because this stamp has a border around it, I also gave the orange piece and the background a small black border with my copic marker.

Orange #2

My second orange background is sprayed with red ecoline, but I don't know if you can see it clearly on the picture.  I've combined balloon stamps from 2 different stamping companies: the background and sentiment are from Stampinback and the focal stamp is from Crafty Individuals.  I have to admit I had to do the background twice because I didn't use the correct ink first and I had black stains on it :(
