Craftorij Summer Challenge week 9 (the last batch)

I can honestly say that I really surprised myself and managed to finish the cards last weekend (even though I was pretty ill with a throat infection/flue type and could do much creative work at all last week!) The last prompts had a few tough ones for me because I couldn't come up with a lot of different stuff. But well I did my best and that is all you can do, right? So here they are, the last prompts of the CZC 2016:

CZC54-Use a selfmade stencil
The flower is a stencil I made with the MM Slice. Bakcground is made with various distress stains and designs by Rynn Texture stamps. The floral silhouette woman is from Lost coast Designs. I stamped her onto a separate paper and adhered her to the piece. Traced with a fineliner to make her more pronounced.

CZC55 - your hero/person you admire
for me that is Vincent Van Gogh.
You can read how I created this piece in my previous Mailart Monday (also do not forget the giveaway!!)

CZC56 use watercolor paint - version 1
CZC56 use watercolor paint
I used a large stamp and painted over with gouache/aqruarelle paint and stamped it on the card stock. Then I painted more/different colors to finish the piece. Version 2

CZC57 Hands
was not too inspired for this one, but LCD has some great images I wanted to use.
an ink spatted background on which I stamped carabelle and katzelkraft stamps. The hand images are from Lost Coast Designs and I stamped them on sticker paper, colored, cut and adhered them to the piece.

CZC58 Reflection
Another stencil I made with the MM Slice. The background is made with various purple distress stains and I spattered white acrylic paint over it. Then I used the stencil and dark purple memento ink and a distress tool to sponge the ink through the stencil. Looks like portraits of galaxies. This might be one of my fave pieces I have done in the challenge.

CZC59 - Use a transfer technique
I used two: the gel transfer of the image in the middle and the gelli plate packing tape transfer on the borders. I adhered it all to a marbled bookpage. stamps from VLVs and Studio Light.

Stamps from joy crafts and katzetkraft
colored with tombows, distress stains, promarkers and distress crayons.

CZC61 - make something in 15 minutes
I created with ink wash with stencils, india ink and ecoline (magic ink tutorial on youtube!)
And it's indeed time to unwind as this is the last piece of the CZC 2016 challenge!

What a ride it has been! This is what the whole stack looks like in hand (minus a few which I already mailed out):
Can't believe I did it, finished the CZC index card a day challenge. I made over 61 cards in a little over 2 months time :) #crafty #craftorijzomerchallenge #craftorij #CZC #czc2016 #indexcard #mixmediaart #mixedmedia #mixedmediaartist #challenge #craftye
