Super Hero Boy!


Scrappers Delights er vår sponsor for denne ukens utfordring #30 hos Creative Fingers ~ som vanlig har vi 'Lag-hva-du-vil' med et valgfritt tema som denne gangen er å bruke Perler/halv-perler! Jeg fikk 'Super Hero Boy' digistempel å vise frem, kjempesøt! Og jeg har prøvd meg på et typisk guttekort... med Perler!!! Ikke helt typisk det da, og litt utfordrende... men det funket til slutt!
Vi har også en DT-Call på utfordringsbloggen ~ så om du kunne tenkte deg å være med på vårt design-team, ta en titt her! :)

Jeg har latt kreativiteten flyte fritt, og lekt meg med Gelli Arts gel printing og lagd flere bakgrunner, både på dette kortet og på flere som kommer etterhvert! Kjempemoro med stenciler og blekk og maling :) Mere info på engelsk lenger ned i tråden, med flere flotte linker til videoer på youtube! 
PSst: imorgen har jeg bursdag, så det blir nok en el. annen overraskelse her i bloggen snart! :)

Our sponsor this week at Creative Fingers is Scrappers Delights. And I have used the digistamp 'Super Hero Boy'. Isn't he sweet? ♥ If you want to join us in Challenge #30, it's always Anything Goes with an optional twist this time of 'Pearls'! 

We're also currently expanding on our design team, so if you're interested in joining us at Creative Fingers DT, take a look see at our DT CALL!
 
I really wanted to do a boy card and with this digi ~ and I struggled a bit with adding pearls to it... a bit unusual to go with a boy-theme, but at least they are blue! *lol* :)
Had some new cogs-dies too from Sissix that I wanted to play with ~ perfect for boys or steampunk cards I think.

My background paper is done with a brayer and different colored inkpads ~ on a Gelli Plate! I'm totally hooked on this new technique, after seeing this video by Lavinia Stamps on youtube 'Card creations using the Gelli Plate', I knew I just had to buy one. It arrived recently, and I've made lots of fun backgrounds ~ wich will end up on cards soon :) Gelli Arts have their own channel on youtube with tutorials on how to use the gel plate. And this lady ~ Patti Parrish ~ has some very cool techniques that I'll try out sometime (she's very entertaining too!).

And by the way.. Tomorrow is my birthday so there will be a surprise giveaway soon!!! :)
