Hello Sweet Watermelon! 🍉

Endelig er sommer'n her! 😎 Og når varmen kommer er det godt med saftig søt vannmelon.. og litt sukker drysset på! Kortet mitt er DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #166., og den søte jenta er et digi motiv fra vår sponsor Bugaboo Stamps. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :) 

Jeg fant noen dies som passet perfekt til temaet, kuttet dem ut på akvarellpapir, og malte dem og motivet med distress inks & twinks (se info nederst). 

Mye mindre 'dilldall' å male diecuts'ene enn å begynne med å kutte ut flere forskjellige farger og så klippe + paperpiece dem!

Har du sett nyeste bloggcandyen min? Mye spennende innhold i den boksen! 
Summer Add-on Blogcandy! 😊

It's been taking quite a while for summer to come all the way up north in Norway.. but at last, summer is here! 😎 And when the heat comes, it's so refreshing with some watermelon slices.. with some sprinkled sugar on top ♥ 

My DT card for this fortnights challenge #166. at Creative Fingers has a sweet main motif from our sponsor Bugaboo stamps, and as always it is an 'Anything goes theme'. You are more than welcome to join with your creations :)

I found some dies that fit the theme perfectly, cut them out on watercolor paper, and painted those and the main motif with my distress inks and twinks (see detailed photo above, and info at the bottom of the post). So much less hazzle to just paint the diescuts instead of cutting out a dozen colors and then paperpece them together!

Did you see my new blogcandy? So much fabulous goodies inside that box! Join here to find out ~
