Arabian Nights ~ Scheherazade

Mitt DT bidrag for Creative Fingers #143. som er sponset av Angelique med en kjempeflott stempelsett og die! Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema. Velkommen skal du være ♥

Designteamet fikk bruke fritt av hva vi allerede har av motiver, og jeg har brukt et nydelig Hero Arts klubb kit jeg fikk i desember ifjor med orientalske motiver. Det minner veldig om Scheherazade, fortellersken i boka 1001 natt med favoritteventyr som Aladdin, Sinbad og AliBaba og de førti røverne! :)

My DT inspiration for Creative Fingers challenge #143. wich is sponsored by our Angelique with a fab stampset and die for the lucky winner! As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations :)

The team had free choice to use any motifs we wanted on this challenge, and I have used the Hero Arts december 2017 club kit wich was
arabian nights themed, and I believe one of the most beautiful kits Hero Arts have ever made ♥ My two previous blogposts is also using this kit!

I do not know if the artist intended it so, but the girl reminds me very much of Scheherazade from 1001 Nights, or Arabian Nights as it is also named. I had a version with only some of the stories (better suited for young children I assume) and I especially loved the stories about Aladdin, AliBaba & Sinbad.
