Dreamy Fairy Anaelise


Ukens utfordring hos Creative Fingers #67. er sponset av Nikki Burnette, og som alltid er det 'Lag-hva-du-vil' ~ valgfritt tema! Unnskyld kornete bilder, fått meg ny mobil og selv om Xperia Z3 Compact er en super-mobil, så har jeg ikke funnet ut av den enda.. forhåpentligvis bedre bilder i neste bloggpost ;)

https://www.etsy.com/shop/aurella27

I'm having a bit of a quarrel with my new phone ~ Sony Xperia Z3 Compact ~ of how to get the best pics.. Not used to the settings yet! I'm just learning the ways of a smart-phone for the first time, which is prooving to be a little tricky ~ but in no time I'm find I'm addicted to the apps.. SOooo many apps! .. there's WordsWithFriends, Spotify, Instagram, Run Sackboy! Run, Minion Rush.. to name a few of my instant favourites ~ btw. my handle is Tindaloo on most stuff if u wanna look me up for a game or two ;) 
Theese were actually the best photos I took out of probably 20+... The camera on the phone is superb ~ 20.7 MP, so it's definitly my poor lighting in my scraproom that's at fault here (not my cameraskills *lol*).. I really need to make myself a shoebox-lightbox.. thanks for the tip Angelique!

Little Christmas Girl Card


Et gammelt julekort har fått nytt liv! Har brukt en ny teknikk (for meg) med Miracle tape og embossing pulver, ser nesten ut som krakelert maling etterpå! Julekrans motivet var for pent til å dekke over med nytt stæsj, så jeg rammet det isteden inn med litt pynt og dette søte digistemplet fra All Dressed Up.

http://www.etsy.com/shop/alldressedupstamps

Made a christmas card with an all new technique for me ~ miracle tape with embossing powder. Very fun, it sort of looks like crackled paint! I have altered an old plain and flat card, and given it new life with this cute Little Christmas Girl from All Dressed Up ♥ The motive with the wreath was too good to cover up, so instead I framed it better with the embossing, sweet embellishes, diecuts and sparklies! :)

The detailed image to the left shows some of the lovely shiny glitter that comes from the H2O's :) Glossy Accents on details too. Heat embossed text. The background of the image was made with a stencil and I masked the image first. Got all of the Distress Stains from Blitsy this xmas, and finally got to play with them: Dusty Concord, Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry + sponged on some Tumbled glass & Broken China. I usually HATE using pinks n pastels, but with Tim Holtz' distressed colorpalette I find that I really LOVE them ♥

Happy New Years! :)


I've made a fun SBS X-mas Bookmark today! Almost didn't make it at all as my printer settings had gone weird, and somehow green, even if I said print black? So the digi didn't stick to the paper as it should, and I had to print again ~ but NO more ink *lol* Got there in the end though, with a half hour to spare before new years and deadlines.. Yes, sitting with ink on my fingers tonight, the only difference from any other night in my scraproom is that I have a drink beside me, Mojito :) Happy New Years!!!
