Sjoe, waar begin ek! Almal so mooi! Iets wat my dadelik opgeval het is die effek van die subtiele ge'scorde' lyne! Wys jou net hoe doeltreffend so klein detail kan wees!
Bly om jou by CTS te sien!

Nadat ik de benedenboel eens grondig had gepoetst vanmorgen eet ik nu even een broodje onder het genot van een klein blogrondje en heb inderdaad even de tijd genomen om al je prachtige kaartjes te bewonderen. Stuk voor stuk zijn het juweeltjes en oh die je hebt gemaakt voor de "cas on sunday" met de sketch, wat heb je dat prachtig verwerkt met de scorelijnen!

Fijne dag,
Groetjes Thea

Wow wat een mooie kaartjes heb je weer gemaakt. ik zag eerst alleen de bovenste met die mooie bloemetjes en dat kleurverloop, prachtig! En die van CQC is ook al zo mooi, heel eenvoudig maar daarom hou ik er zo van! Je andere kaartjes zijn ook zo mooi, wat een leuk idee voor die vlakken op je kaart en daartussen die score lijnen! Lieve groetjes, Erna

A real treat to see not one but so many beautiful flowercards! A great card for the TIME OUT challenge, so fhank you for taking some TIME OUT and join us!
Love the background sponging on the first; looks so good with those flowers, but they are all beautiful!

Becca Cruger said...

Wow girly! Look at you go! This is an amazing lineup of talent, right here! I especially loved that first card - it's absolutely stunning with its soft sponging and gorgeous coloring. You're so talented!

Hallo Petra,

Wat een plezier om weer langs te komen en jouw prachtige kaarten te zien. Graag wil ik je ook nog heel hartelijk bedanken voor je enige reacties als je mijn blog bezoekt. Ik vind het Afrikaans ook zó leuk om te lezen ook al is het niet altijd heel makkelijk hihi!!

Maar nu jouw kaarten:
Beeldig die roze bloemen tegen het gesponsde blauwe hoekje.
Die scorelijnen vind ik werkelijk fantastisch, wat geeft dat een speciaal effect!!!
De aquarelachtergrond is ook zo knap gemaakt en de onderste 2 kaartjes met de gears zijn ook weer top..........een feestje om te bekijken allemaal!!

xx Irene

This series of cards is truly inspirational.. I am not kidding just fantastic.. I don't know how you do it over and over again.. My jaw is getting tired from hitting the ground!! :). Okay here I go card by card.;) Your Spring Card: is absolutely sensational!! The delicate sponging is so well done and those pink flowers are just well... beautiful. the patterned paper with your signature black is a perfect touch for this card Petra. Your sentiment is so... you! and I love it!
The Colour Q card: I love your intereptation of the sketch. Using simple score lines is genius!! The circles with the flowers are just outstanding and your backdrop well spectacular.. Seriously I am going to end up at your front door.
Butterfly card: Was the background sponged or some other fantastic technique I don't know about. Your simplicity is what blows me away.. Your sentiment and focal image work so well together. And look at the beautiful purple color.. I don't use this word lightly but this is stunning Petra. So pretty.
CASE cards: Wait just a minute!! do you live by water too!! Oh Petra I am hopping on a plane and coming over to see you seriously. If you see a cargo box delivered to your door, open it right away because I may need some air after my long journey. But no backdrop compares to these beautiful cards. My favorite part for the blue card is the three simple stripes on the side. Again simplicity.. So well executed. Both are so pretty..
Now I am going to pick up my jaw and have some tea after all this eye candy!! So talented my friend.. I am very lucky to know you..

Awesome on each card. Your takes on the sketches always blow me away. You put your own spin on each sketch, and I like it better than your inspiration piece. Each of these has a design that is beautiful and your color choices always brighten & enhance the sketch. Always love when you add in the 'frame graphics'. So individually your own signature style, and it's lovely. TFS & Have a super week. Hugs

Petra these are stunning. I so love how you layer up your dies. Adore the soft sponging on your card for TO with the touch of DSP, love to see you in our gallery. And your last card is superb, why not enter this into CASology, isn't that a wheel/clog and that spins, right?
Anyway thanks for joining TO x

Joyce said...

Wow, Petra. The beautiful cards just kept coming and coming. All stunning. Those pink flowers on your first card are so pretty and really look and feel like spring. I love the subtle sponging of blue behind your focal point. And, the way you used the colourQ colors on your second card is fantastic. Love that you used score lines for your take on the sketch. Keeps the card so clean and really draws attention to the delicate details on your focal point. Love the cards you made for the sketch challenges as well. All so very pretty. Thanks so much for playing along at ColourQ and Time Out this week.

Jen Mitchell said...

Your creativity knows no bounds Petra! One after another I am wowed by these beautiful cards.

Lindsey said...

Petra, you are one of my absolute favorite card designer! Your cards always have something so spectacular and unexpected about them. And you are a master at awesome collage designs. Your first card is gorgeous! I love the embossed diagonal lines and the die cuts you combined on the second one...such a neat design! The background you created on your butterfly card is gorgeous, and I love everything about the card design on the last two so much that I'm so happy you made more than one!

Vicki Dutcher said...

I almost missed this fabulous eye candy post!! That would of been a loss, as these are ALL fabulous! I so do love your graphic style cards -- that clustering you do is awesome too!

I Card Everyone said...

You have bowled me over with these beauties, Petra! LOve your CTS cards - did you pounce that color, or smoosh it? =] Your butterfly is so pretty with his purple/blue background [and real flowers!!] Adding those score-lines? Genius move for the sketch - why do I never think to do this? Thanks, too, for the lovely view of the ocean!

Leigh Penner said...

All of your cards are just stunning Petra! I love the background you've created - it really sets off your fabulous butterfly. Thanks for joining us at FMS this week!

KT Fit Kitty said...

Oh Petra you have been very busy! So many cards! Distress Ink is one of my favourite products so I really enjoy looking at your sponging! I think my favourite is the first card, but I love them all! I really like your creative scoring on the second one too - caught my eye right away.

SewPaperPaint said...

Petra, the flowers with the stripes is such an amazing combo! They are colored so beautifully. I just love the watercolor background for your butterfly card too! Such an inspiration! Hugs, Autumn
