Some recent sketches

I am drifting towards sketching, I just can't help it 😄

We had pretty tough couple of months and we needed a tiny escape vacations.
A beautiful village, population 8 people. Perfect.
Here is an actual view from the window of Bed&Breakfast we were staying. A real 12th century castle.

the doorknocker that we actually had to use as there wasn't a doorbell

and together

also a quick sketch from this afternoon - hot chilli peppers

That's all for today,

Something old, something new, something borrowed...

... and I guess nothing blue. 

I haven´t posted much of my sketches lately, a bit in Instagram but not all of them.
Why? I don't know, there's always something more urgent to do, to take a photo of or publish.
Ultimamente no publico mucho y hoy voy a ahorrarme unas publicaciones y hacerlo todo a la vez.

Anyways here are some of the drawings I made in last couple of weeks and one that I made a year ago but haven't published it until now (revived by #tbt hashtag 😂)
Estos son algunos de mis sketches hechos recientemente más uno hecho hace un año.

So let's start with something old
Y empezamos con este

made it last year and still like it!
Cumple un añito y todavía me gusta!

Something new
Uno nuevo

I love this technique, it's so simple and effective. Just blend everything in and make some details (raindrops and plants) with a white and black pen. I like playing with the light lately I believe I could grab a feeling of that bright sunshine that shows up after a rain.
Me gusta esta técnica porque es muy simple pero eficaz. Sólo mezclar colores y añadir detalles con un boli blanco (y dibujar las plantas con un boli negro). Me gusta jugar con la luz, creo que pude transmitir esa luz de después de la lluvia.

Something borrowed... well, not exactly. I was following an online streaming and drawing along. Had to leave earlier, so I finished it on my own later that day, so it isn't exactly the same dandelion. But I like it as it is
Este era un online en instagram, dibujado con la profe en tiempo real. Tenía que irme antes y acabé ese sketch más tarde así que es un poco diferente del original, pero me gusta así

and a cupcake (does it count as a 'blue'??) 
y una magdalena)))

that´s all for today
es todo por ahora

Diamond fold card with a modified Gorjuss stamp

Hello there,
Just to show you a tiny card with a hidden diamond (yeah! that's a cool name for it 😄) and a Gorjuss girl.

I drew the face and coloured the stamp with Copic markers. She is very cute!

You probably are wondering why I called it a diamond card...  It is HIDDEN 😂

... makes everything better!

Another quick entry. Just using my old stamps and dies in a new combination.
This time I made a card using a colour resist technique. Simple but effective.
I changed the stamp that said 'chocolate makes everything better', sure it does but I cut off the word 'chocolate'))) now the phrase has a totally new meaning.

Ah and I keep experimenting with those wooden panels, they are perfect as a background.

Recycled wood Layout

It was quite ambitious of me but I had to try)) to make my own wooden base for a layout.

Originally I wanted to make just a decorative piece but then going through the photos I found this one 😂

This is a full picture of the layout.
Wood planks spray painted with gesso, using a heart shaped mask...

and a bit closer

Here all the cracks and chipped paint are visible. I like how it turned out, definitely will try to make more.

Con este LO voy a presentarme al reto de KORA projects

xxx Inga.

Dark angel aka Reina

hi there,

Finally I finished this notebook, yay! Took me a while)))
I was challenged to make a project using a very peculiar colour palette proposed by Reina Akasha

It was quite a leap from my confort zone.
Anyways I had an idea straight away... but there were endless changes ... and here we go

some details: glitter, fabric, feathers, microbeads

I am very happy how it turned out, this is the back

inside there are black pages (240 gr cardstock, perfect for sketching... yes, it is black but hey! did I mention that the colours of this challenge were quite a challenge? so this is my itsy bitsy revenge)

that's it for today

Spring Basket with a digi stamp

Hey there,
Just a quick weekend project here.
It took me couple of days to take some decent photos as it was raining non-stop (yeah, rain in Spain 😛) and the light wasn't very good.
My first attempt with a lamp, na-ah the colours are a bit off...

And here it is in natural light...
I used 7dots Studio paper from old collection, I like it a lot

The handle is doubled to make it stronger (and prettier from inside as well) 
Sweet little message on the back...

And a closer look at this cute guy.
Coloured with Copic markers.
The flower is a Prima Marketing Zella Teal collection.
And I would like to enter these challenges:
