Altered Phone Case

I've found a cheep phone case from leather, but the colour is ...unamusing
I remembered a tutorial from my friend Gio in Italy, how she was altering a Leather - Purse from trash to treasure. You can take a look, when you klick on her name. She also shares a lot of her nowledge on her YouTube channel here

I also started with two layers of gesso. I then gave it a good coat of walnut distress stain and wiped it of a bit with a damp cloth for a distressed look. Let dry for 1 hour and seal it then, with Multi Medium or Mod Podge and the Distress Stain won't smear anymore and you are ready to stamp.

You can stamp directly (use StazOn or Archival), but with this small surface, i prefare to stamp on tissue. I sandet the case a bit. I sprayed the tissue with a homemade mist (using water, reinker vintage photo and copper perfect pearls) and then adhered the stamped tissue to the phone case  with Ranger Multi Matt Medium. After drytime, i applyed two coats of matt medium for sealing. I then sandet the edges and used Distress Ink for the finish look.



I used my DaVinci Stampset from Katzelkraft  and i love the worn and used look of my new phone case.

 Theme this week on Simon Says Stamp And Show One Colour..any Colour. Don't you think it fits perfect?

Card with Stripes

October is the birthday month in my family (:o) My brother was starting on 4th, my son on 12th, my mother on 23th and my father on 31th.....Boohooo.

Simon Says Stamp And Show some stripes........so i've made a card for my mom, that fit's the challenge also.


I used my new La Blanche Stamp.....i won at Melissa Samuels Blog. This stamp is very detailed. I used Tim Holtz DI in Spiced Marmelade, Fired Brick and Shabby Shutters.

I love the harvest colours. When the nature is exploding and some leaves on the trees turn into deep red...
Happy Birthday, Mum (:o)

Happy Weekend
