Under the Sea... 🐠🐟

Har lagd en trio av kort med sommer og sjø tema ~ ganske clean & simple for min type kreasjoner, men tenkte jeg skulle prøve å legge bort distress inksene for engangs skyld.. prøve ut litt andre stilarter. Vi får se hvor lenge det varer! 😉
Kortene er DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #234. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema. Jeg er sponsor denne gangen og har både et digistempel og et clearstamp sett som premie! Velkommen skal du være


I have made a trio of cards, with a summer & sea theme as my DT inspiration for this fortnights challenge #234. at Creative Fingers. Theese are very much clean & simple for my kind of creations, thought I would try not using distressing for a change and have a go at other kinds of card styles. We'll see how long that lasts... lol 😉
As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations
. I am sponsoring with both a digistamp AND a physical clearstamps prize this time! 💗
