Hello dear Friend ♥

Disse kortene er DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #154., som er sponset av Angelique denne gang. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være ♥

Designteamet fikk bruke fritt av hva vi allerede har av motiver, og jeg har prøvd meg på clean & simple kort ~ men som vanlig endte jeg opp med noe som ikke ligner den stilen, da jeg ikke klarer å bare ha 'bittelitt' mere distress ink og detaljer på kortene ;)

~ ♥ Hello, my dear friend ♥ ~

My DT inspiration for Creative Fingers challenge #154. wich is sponsored with a great prize by our Angelique this time. 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 tried to do clean and simple looking cards... but as always I fail big in that I always just need to add that little extra distress ink and a bit more detail ;) Oh how I wish I was able to copy Jennifer McGuire! Her cards always look so cool! ♥

Techniques/Mediums:  I used misc. Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads, markers & crayons to color & distress image and papers. To heat emboss I used a Versamark inkpad, a heat gun tool & Hero Arts fine detail black embossingpowder. It's maybe difficult to see in the other photos, but there is a lot of shine on the cards, using some Cosmic Shimmer mica powder in a water spray bottle. 

Oh, and see the stray black dots? I forgot to use my anti-static tool before embossing! Darnit! One should always do that, especially with dark or black embossing powder ;)
