New stamps

I know it's many months to next ramadan but I bought new stamps and I wanted to try them right away. My boyfriend is a muslim so I thought it would be nice to have some stamps for muslim holidays as well as my christian ones.
So here is a card for ramadan. I masked off a part of the card and then used green distress ink over the stamped image and sentiment. I then sprayed perfect pearls gold over it to make it shimmer beautifully. It's difficult to take good photos of shimmer so I post a couple of photos. 

Ramadan is the month when the quaran started to come to Mohammed. That's why I enter the card in Less is more's challenge this week.

I love you

It's fathers day here in sweden on sunday. It will be the first one we celebrate for my dear man as he became dad to our precious son in august. I don't get much time to do cards theese days due to the little one but I have time to search the internet for inspiration. I found a cool technique with embossing folders that I wanted to try out. So when I finally got some time to create I decided to try this technique for two fathers day cards, one for my father and one for my sons father. 
The technique is to ink up a piece of watercolor paper, I used distress ink. Then spray a embossing folder with water on one side and press that side on the paper. The water will pick upp some of the ink and leave the folders pattern on the paper. 
The pink one didn't turn out the way it was supposed to but I liked it and think it makes a cool background. The sentiment says I love you.

I'm entering the following challenges:
