City Crafter 351


Good morning!

Marina has picked this week's challenge at City Crafter and the theme is
'Hygge'

" Hygge is a Danish term for creating a cozy atmosphere and enjoying the simple things in life with good people around you.
Create a project that captures the spirit of hygge, or take inspiration from the photo."

The wooden surface in this photo caught my eye and had a notion to make a card that featured a mug similar to the pottery in the photo on a wooden surface ... I didn't own a mug or cup stamp so I just drew one


...coloured it with Copics then added dimensional gloss to give it a glazed look and used a white gel pen for steam


For the wooden surface I printed one of my digital papers, cut the shape I wanted and drew some lines  then aged it by scratching my craft knife over the surface


The BG was sponged, the sentiment was computer generated and I added just a little sprig that was left over from my Christmas cards...
Sometimes my ideas work and sometimes they don't .. Thankfully it did in this case

I can't wait to see what you come up with ... I'm off to the City Crafter blog to see what the rest of our team have created for this challenge, you're welcome to join me


Have a lovely cosy day

Hygge. It's so nice that there is a single word for such a lovely notion. It sure fits my way of life. I have to say I love how you scratched up the wood and glazed your hand-drawn mug. Beautiful simplicity in your card design to fit the hygge theme. Love it, Ros!

Your beautifully created card has a wonderful cozy warmth, Ros. I love how you added textures with your craft knife scratches and glossy effects. Your Winter sprig was the perfect addition for a little more color and Winter beauty. TFS my friend. Hugs...

You drew that cup? My oh my; its stunning! Love the colouring and such a clever idea to use paptterned paper and sctach the surface. It looks amazing! That little sprig is a perfect finishing touch. ( Glad it's on my Christmas gift box too; still standing in my craftroom)
You really nailed this weeks theme. Wow!
