Thank you card (bits and bobs)

Sono bloccata in casa a causa del maltempo, come moltissima gente italiana ed europea. :(  La neve è arrivata anche sulla spiaggia e qui non siamo abituati...!! Fa freddo!! Spero che arrivi presto la primavera...
Ma c'è una cosa positiva: ho finalmente un po' di tempo per il relax e per fare qualcosa nella mia craft room :D LOL 
Per questa card ho usato: un bellissimo fiore che molto tempo addietro una mia blog friend ;) aveva gentilmente timbrato per me; alcune fustellate tagliate con la Big Shot manuale (la cornice è Sizzix, le foglie sono unbranded dalla Cina); un avanzo di carta brand DCWV che ho vinto al Hop to Stop 2016 sul sito di Becca; un foglio di un vecchio libro su cui avevo pulito uno stencil di Gio Zara dopo averlo usato con gli spray acrilici; degli stickers molto carini (farfalle e cuori); una piccola etichetta tagliata con un punch; un timbro per il sentiment; Nuvo Drops viola e trasparente; markers e Distress Inks per colorare
...Non è bellissimo questo fiore? :) L'ho colorato con i miei Promarkers e ho messo del Nuvo Drops trasparente nel centro.
Ho tagliato le foglie da avanzi di carta verde e l'etichetta da un pezzettino di carta bianca, che ho colorato con i Distress Inks. Il sentiment è un timbro avuto con una rivista.
Mi piaceva moltissimo quel pezzo di carta di libro su cui avevo pulito lo stencil e l'avevo conservato (insieme a molti altri...! LOL :D) Ho strappato i bordi. Le farfalle stickers hanno dettagli in rilievo e le trovo molto belle, purtroppo in foto non sono riuscita a catturare bene i colori cangianti! Nuvo Drops random.... adoro usarlo! :)
La carta patterned mi sembra che richiami il fiore e il disegno dello stencil.
L'unica cosa che non mi soddisfa è l'arancione che ho usato per colorare la cornice, è un po' troppo acceso... sarà stato il desiderio di sole e di caldo?? LOL :D
Pazienza, l'importante è che mi sono goduta questo momento di craft!! :D
Con questo progetto vorrei partecipare ai seguenti challenge:

You live in a beautiful part of Italy with a gorgeous breathtaking view, even with the snow! Your card is just rich with texture and dimension and I love the pretty background and colors along with all of those great die-cut elements! The butterflies are gorgeous and so are the little hearts and nuvo drops and then there's that big, beautiful purple bloom! Well done my friend :) Stay warm!!

Hello, dear Alice! Thank you for sharing the beautiful photos of your area of the world! Such a gorgeous view of the water and the snow looks lovely! We have had an unusual winter here because normally we would have a lot of snow but not this year. It seems that each time it snows, then shortly after it turns to rain or the weather gets mild and the snow is gone in a day or so. I am happy about this - I do not like winter or snow!

I am so happy that you had some time to play with your crafts! Your card is beautiful! I love the butterflies, flowers, and die-cut leaves, and your gorgeous colour combo! I love purple! You added so many lovely details! I so enjoy seeing your creations, my friend! Enjoy your weekend! I hope all the kitties will be okay in the snow!

Hugs,
Kitty

Brrrr I bet that cold is really hard for all of you folks not used to such snow & cold weather. It's beautiful in the picture you shared however. I loved your card, and I think the orange frame works well with the cooler blue shade. The book paper is a wonderful element in the composition and that purple flower just glows. Fantastic shading in the petals too. I loved all the little details you've added to make this such a pretty card. Good use of your 'bad weather' down time! Stay warm. Hugs & TFS

BEAUTIFUL AND AMAZING photo Alice, I am in awe of what my friends are posting as here down under it is never like this unless you travel a long long way to the snow fields and some is not real snow. Love this gorgeous crafting beauty, the colours and added beautiful goods are inspirational...Glad you have time to craft a little.

Gorgeous photo Alice! We too have snow but it was the high winds that have caused the most problems with flooding near our harbour and roof tiles and bricks being blown around dangerously. Some of our streets have been closed until the roofs can be made safe. The sand on the beach in Scarborough was been washed away completely in parts too.
Your card is just fabulous! Such wonderful colours (even the orange frame), textures and embellishments. I particularly love the flower, such fantastic colouring, the butterfly and heart stickers. The leftover book page is a great addition and fits in beautifully with your gorgeous flower. Debra x

Buon giorno Alice,

Neve in Italia e Barcellona, a cosa sta arrivando il mondo. La mia amica italiana aveva la neve e non le piace il freddo quando è primavera.

Almeno la tua carta è piena di colori estivi e bellissimi fiori per alleggerire la nostra giornata. sembra bello anche in viola e in femminilità e si adatta perfettamente al nostro tema Allsorts.

Abbi cura di te e tieniti al caldo.

How beautiful Alice, the images are beautifully coloured and so much detail to it.
fabulous photo, there seems to be snow everywhere in Europe, keep cosy, Kate x

Pia S ha detto...

Your coloring work is impressive, the shading is perfect, it looks very much like a real flower would. The stenciled area I thought was a die cut. Clever way to use a stencil. There’s so much color and detail, lots to look at and the finished work is gorgeous.

cotnob ha detto...

A beautiful card, lots of fabulous details and pretty colours.
We have had lots of snow here as well which is very unusual, most of it has thawed now though.

A beautiful card with so many different elements. I really like the colours that you’ve used and your use of text in the background too. It seems very strange seeing snow on the beach in Italy and it’s been really cold here in the UK too. Let’s hope it gets warm soon x

Kathleen ha detto...

A really beautiful flower and some gorgeous elements and really lovely the way you have done the butterflies and some really lovely elements.

Wow Alice, what fabulous colours - so vibrant and Summery! A beautiful card from you - as always. You added so much lovely detail with the foliage, butterflies and that wonderful flower - and then right behind you have the printed background. Wonderful! And, W what a lovely photo of where you live as well - I can imagine that the snow came as a bit of a shock though :)

Oh my gosh, this is gorgeous! There are so many wonderful elements here that I could look at this again and again and see something new every time! Your big flower is so amazing with the glossy center. The background is bold and beautiful and has a lovely design. Beautiful butterflies, luscious foliage and just the right amount of bling! Sorry you've been stuck inside, but I'm not sorry you had time to make this stunning design! hugs :)

Gio ha detto...

Che meraviglia!! Non l'ho riconosciuto ma quello stralcio di pulizia di stencil è favoloso! Io c' ho fatto dei lavori stupendi solo con fogli dove ho pulito gli stencil. Bravissima!
