Still inking with the Green & Blues!

Følger på med nok et blå-grønt kort! Hadde så mye flott stæsj som stod i stil med disse fargene liggende klart på scrappe-bordet, så det ble noen kort med sterke farger ja! Hvis du ruller helt ned i posten, finner du lenker til å kikke på d nye favoritt verktøyet mitt fra Tim Holtz ~ mini blending tool!!! Og så har jeg fått en sånn flink å fin spritzer! ;) ♥ 
Har forresten en BloggCandy som går tom. 30. April, om du vil være med ~ ingen regler, du trenger ikke ha egen blogg, bare legg igjen en kommentar i denne posten! :)

Vår sponsor hos Creative Fingers for ukens utfordring #33., er Milk N Coffee! Og som vanlig har vi 'Lag-hva-du-vil' med et valgfritt tema som denne gangen er 'BINGO!' Se utfordringsbloggen for tema ~ mitt kort kan vel være flere av disse linjene ~ men la oss si 'Flower, Bling & Ribbon'.  Jeg har brukt 'Charlotte and the Butterfly' ~ bare en av mange helt nydelige digis som du finner her på etsyshoppen deres;

'Happy Birthday'
I'm really on a roll with the greens and blues!!! Had rummaged through my scrap-room for hours for the previous cards I made, so my desk was full of papers and embellies in lovely bright colors, seemed a shame to put them all away before playing some more with the brighter spectrum of my T.Holtz distress inks! ;)

Creative Fingers sponsor this week on challenge #33. is Milk n Coffee ~ a fab company of wich I've inked up the cutest little digi, 'Charlotte and Butterfly' ♥ 
As always it's 'Anything Goes' as a theme, with the option this time of 'BINGO'! 
I've gone for the 'Flower, Bling & Ribbon'. Check out the challenge if u wish to play with us! There's still a DT call going on as well :)

I also have to mention that I have a super Blogcandy right now ~ until April 30th., in wich there are NO rules to enter / I ship worldwide / and u don't need to own a blog to sign up! Just sayin'... who doesn't want free stuff! ;)

AuroraWings Rose Fairy in Green & Blue!

Vanligvis er det vintage & de myke jordfargene som gir meg inspirasjon, men i det siste har jeg fått dilla på Tim's nydelige grønne og blå distress inks ~ peacock feather, mowed lawn, salty ocean, evergreen bough (fra sesong fargene). Har brukt disse og noen flere + mine twinkeling H2o's for å få litt glans ~ alle feer må jo ha litt glitter!  :) 

..Congratulations ~ enjoy your day..

Usually it is the vintage & soft earthy tones that gives me inspiration to color and craft. But lately I've been having tons of fun playing with Tim's gorgeous green & blue distress inks from the seasonal packs ~ peacock feather, mowed lawn, salty ocean, evergreen bough. 
I've used theese to ink up my image n card, as well as other distress inks & my twinkeling H2o's to add some sparkle... All fairies need some glitter right?! :)

AuroraWings designs are made by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff ~ and I adore her wonderful fairies and sprites ♥ Already got a folder full of digis yet to be inked up! *lol*

So here's some pixie-dust.. *poof* NOW it will work I'm sure *lol*

One thing I love alot is everything magic and fantasy ~ and especially elves, pixies and fairies ♥ I even have a pixie tattoo! I have a really sweet blog-candy down a post, with a couple of fairystamps up for grabs if your interested :)

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! :)

Text: 'For a tough guy/tough cookie'
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!!! :)
