Circe Lounging with Lion... Aslan? :)


Håper alle får en kjempefin 17 mai og grunnlovsfeiring imorgen! Og forhåpentligvis flott vær! Krysser fingre og tær for at sola kommer, men det ser litt mørkt ut.. ;)
 
Vår sponsor er AuroraWings for denne ukens utfordring #36 hos Creative Fingers ~ og som vanlig har vi 'Lag-hva-du-vil' med et valgfritt tema som denne gangen er 'Girly'! Jeg fikk dette nydelige digistemplet å vise frem ♥ 

Har forresten begyndt å merke kortene jeg lager på en litt annen måte ~ med navnet mitt på tvers over bildet/stemplet, for å beskytte produsenten først og fremst, men også for å unngå at noen 'tyvlåner' kortene mine uten å si fra og later som de er deres... o_O Det har faktisk skjedd!


I was so lucky to get this gorgeous stamp from our sponsor at Creative Fingers this week, AuroraWings. Our challenge #36, wich is always anything goes ~ with optional theme of 'Girly' this time. You're welcome to join us!

This image is named 'Circe Lounging with Lion and Flowers' and is from the greek mythology ~ but it may as well be the lion Aslan in the Chronicles of Narnia with Susan! I had a real flashback to the Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe while painting ♥ One of my favourites authors is C.S.Lewis, and I added a quote inside from one of the books;

Tomorrow is the 17th. of May wich is our (Norway) national holiday. And this year it's extra special as we're celebrating 200 years as a nation! I'm going away for the weekend ~ and really hope the weather is good! Knock on wood.. ;)

http://stampoutstamptheft.blogspot.com/By the way, I have begun adding watermarks across the stamp/images to better protect my design and mostly to protect the artists! It is a shame how much stamp-theft there's going on online.. especially on Pinterest! "..Colored images from crafters' blogs are now being pinned to Pinterest and being used by some people as clip art and printables!" quote from Stamp Out Stamp Theft Facebook page. Sad that one have to take such measures!
