I ♥ tree frogs!


Har alltid vært fascinert av disse fargerike og søte froskene ♥ Samlet på postkort av frosker da jeg var yngre og lagde tilogmed et maleri basert på et slikt kort! ..Som en av brødrene mine likte så godt at han 'stjal' for å ha hjemme hos seg ;)


Derfor er jeg kjempeglad å få dette flotte digistemplet fra Beccy's Place, og å vise frem dette kortet som mitt DT-bidrag hos Creative Fingers. Stemplet er egentlig med en vanlig grønn frosk, så pupillen er feil vei i forhold til at jeg har malt i fargene til en trefrosk, men det var det første jeg tenkte på! Til utfordring #108. har vi som alltid et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema :)

http://creativefingerschallengeblog.blogspot.no/


I ♥ tree frogs! Always been facinated by theese colorful & cute little frogs. I used to collect postcards with frogs on them, and even made a painting based on one of the cards! ..Which one of my brothers loved so much that he sort of nicked it from me ;)
http://www.beccysplace.com/
So I was super happy to get this sweet Beccy's Place stamp to color up as my DT-creation at Creative Fingers. This is actually not supposed to be a treefrog so the pupil/slit is the wrong way, but I just wanted to ink it like one anyway! ♥ You are welcome to join us for this fortnights challenge #108. We always have 'Anything Goes' as a theme :)

Feline Friend Birthday card


Kortet mitt idag var kjempegøy å lage bakgrunn til.. SPLÆTT! Masse risting med malepenselen og noen spruter med distress ink sprayene mine ~ men det beste er vel selve splættene, de ser så stilig ut og er veldig enkelt å lage: Ta en Tim Holtz distress stains (med sånn svamp-påførings-topp) og dunk den hardt mot papiret så blekket spruter (lurt å legge arket/kortet oppi ei pappeske eller noe først), og det blir en utrolig kul effekt! ..Jeg 'gjenoppdaget' teknikken her forleden da jeg mistet flasken på bordet.. ble en masse søl, men fikk jo et a-ha øyeblikk ;) 

Vi har to flotte sponsorer i utfordring #107. hos Creative Fingers ~ Lemon Shortbread, & Bridget's Stamps som mitt nydelige motiv er fra. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema :)

http://creativefingerschallengeblog.blogspot.no/


I had such fun creating this cards background! SPLAT! A whole lotta shaking, flicking and spraying ~ but the coolest effect was the splats! Don't they look cool? I 're-discovered' the technique when I dropped my distress stains bottle on my crafttable and made a right mess.. but it did give me an idea for my next project! So to do the same just remember to protect your work surface, like by putting the card base / paper in a cardboard box or something first, then forcibly put the dabber bottle against the paper, and the artistic cool-looking splats appears! I LOVE my Tim Holtz inks ♥
***SPLAT!***

For this fortnights challenge #107. at Creative Fingers ~ we are again so lucky to have two wonderful sponsors:
Lemon Shortbread & Bridget's Stamps who gave us lovely digis to work with ♥ And as always the theme is ~ Anything goes, and you are welcome to join! :)
