Father`s day

Hi everyone!

Today we are celebrating father`s day here in Norway, and in that regard my hubby asked me if i could create a card for him to give to his father. Of course i couldn`t say no to my sweet guy, så here it is.

I think this must be the fastest card i have ever made, but i really am satisfied with how it turned out. My hubby needed a card with a pocket to put a lotteryticket into, so this is what i created. I have seen these types of cards online before and found out it was a perfect card to use. I had to use my own measurements though, as the ticket didn`t have the same size as a giftcard. But the principle is the same. The tutorial i found here.

To decorate the card i used a piece of watercolour paper and used distress ink with a blendingtool and spritzing water to make it blend. Then i used spray inks with perfect pearls, which i have blended myself to get the shimmery parts. Finally i distressed the edges and inked them up.
The butterfly i got in a prize pack i received so i`m not sure what company it`s from but it might be Prima. The rub-on is from Staz.

Hope the explanation was understandable. I`m not the best tutor, lol.
Anyway....thanks for visiting me today!

WSBT round 2 - Layout category

Hi there!

Just popping in to share with you my last creation for round 2 in the World Scrap Battle and Tournament. It`s a layout of my wedding and i just have to warn you that this is a picture-heavy post.

As our wedding theme were light blue i decided to use that colour for my layout. I love how the pics turned out and we had so much fun shooting them.

The paper is Parisian Anthology collection from Pink Paislee. Love the resist in the paper which you will see on a couple of pics further down. I started with Art Basics modelling paste from Prima using the burlap stencil by Tim Holtz and the moroccon lattice stencil from KaiserKraft. When dry, i used Broken china distress ink to frame the area of the photo. Next i spritzed with Blue Hawaiian blue from Lindy`Stamp Gang.

I then watered down some white and some black acrylic paint to make it thinner, and dripped it on the paper. I also dripped the blue from Lindy`s as well. The heart is Prima, Amore aqua coll. and the rose is WOC.

This Resin rose element from Prima was a bit ruined but i figured i could still use it. I painted the middle of the big flower (Meredith dove from Prima) to get rid of the "wrong" colour and gave the big rose (Arcadian coll. from Prima) some stickles diamond glitter. The memories element is also from Prima.

The Always and forever chipboard text is from Blue fern studios. I have painted it with some light blue acrylic paint and adhered it with some dimentional pillows. 

I and my amazing husband. 

Below are a couple of closeups, of the gorgeous shimmer from the sprays by Lindy`s. And you can also see the resist in the paper as i mentioned earlier. I just sprayed the mist and then used a damp cloth to dry it off, and the letters came forward as i never had sprayed them. Awesome, don`t you think?

I`m opleased with how this LO turned out. I still have lots to learn. But it is so much fun creating layouts. 

Hope you like this as much as i do. Thanks for visiting me today.

WSBT - Round 2

Hey everyone!

Ok i know....i`m late posting this. I have no other excuse than i totally forgot. Sooorrrryyyy :-) But at least you`ll get 2 creations for the price of 1, lol.

So here i am with my next creations for the World Scrap Battle and Tournament round 2. And first up is my card.

I`ve created a vintage card in white for a communion. I`m not sure but i think the image i used is from a cuttingsheet from Kort & Godt. Please don`t arrest me if i`m wrong, lol.

I`ve used several kinds of flowers. They are from Kort & Godt and Wild Orchid Crafts.

Next up is my mask for the Alter category.

This is what it looked like before i started.

And here is the end result. I just loooove how it turned out. 

This is actually a candlelight decoration i have had for ages. I found it at Nille a few years ago, thinking it was so beautiful. I didn`t have the slightest idea of what i was gonna use it for though, lol. It was just one of those things you just HAVE to have. But this project is absolutely what it was ment for. I totally see it now, lol. 

I love how the blue shimmery look turned out. It is a blend of pearlescent sky blue ink from Tsukineko and Blue Hawaian blue starburst from Lindy`s Stamp gang. Topped with gems from Marianne Design over the eyes.

The chipboard piece from Dusty Attic is covered with shabby blue embossing enamel from Stampendous and the flowers are from Prima, WOC and Papirloftet. I believe the gems are also from WOC. The feathers are from Nille as well.

If you have any questions as to how the process was, i`ll be happy to answer.

Thanks for visiting me.

World Scrap Battle and Tournament round 2

Hey everyone!

I`m so excited and happy to say that i got through to round 3 with all my creations. And the next 4 days i will show you what i created for round #2. Starting with my mixed media canvas. The theme set for this round was Monochromatic.

I started priming the canvas with gesso and glued the two heart shapes onto it. Next i glued plastic to cover the whole thing. You can stretch the plastic any way you like to create the texture you want. When i was satisfied with the way it was, i painted it with acrylic paint, making sure to get shades into it as well. I also put on some fine sand to get an extra texture. To finish it off i used my finger to just gently rub on some silver paint to make the texture pop a bit more.  

Hope you like my little canvas. Please feel free to stop by tomorrow as i`m having a new creation ready for you. 

Thanks for visiting me. Have a nice day everyone.
