Featured Guest Designer for Challenge #156-Monochrome


Hello once again!
 
********
 
 The Fussy and Fancy girls
are back to introduce
our very talented
Featured
Guest Designer

Silvi aka Bass Lady

 
Here is a little bit about Silvi...
 
Hi crafters!

Wow! I can’t express how honoured I am to be a guest-designer here at
“Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge”!
Dear DT-Team...you really mady my day
when I heard about this awesome news!

My name is Silvi...
I am 45 years old...
 I come from the land of “sauerkraut, schnitzel and beer”...
Germany
I am crafting more than 20 years
I started with my creative “first love”...napkin-technique...
later I became very interested in stamping-technique

My blog name is “Basslady Creations”...
a mixture of my two favourite hobbies: playing e-bass and creating cards
“Clean and simple” is my preferred style
The big shot, embossing-folders and cutting-dies are my beloved tools...
especially the combination of napkins and stamps...something I am known for

My favourite stamps are bible-verses
I love to encourage people with a hand-made card
to cheer them up
The tons of napkins (oh, yes…my collection is very big!) are also used by me
 in making decorating elements like tealights,
 plates, cork-coasters,
 canvas-boards, wooden cutting-boards
 or picture-frames...
the napkins are mainly used for altering them
into the base for them
My friends always think twice...
before they throw something away...
just in case I might need it for crafting…*lol*

The unity of crafters is something very unique and it’s GREAT to be a part of it!
The inspiration and all the helpful ideas of other crafters in blog-land are so awesome and wonderful! It very often gives you that “missing link” you were looking for.
Keep on crafting and have fun!

Hugs and kisses from Germany,
Silvi
 
Now here is the beautiful card that Silvi has created for us..
 
 
"I made my card with brushes and stamping with embossing folders for the background...
in my post I will give the complete description" says Silvi
 
How very beautiful this is Silvi
AND
such  perfect inspiration  for our
Monochrome challenge!!
 
We can't wait to see your complete description of your techniques!!!


 Thank you Silvi for joining us as our Featured Guest Designer at
Fussy and Fancy!!
 
********
 
We know that many of you are familiar with Silvi's work...for those who aren't you really need to hop on over to Silvi's blog!!
There is plenty of inspiration for us all!!!!
