Charm us

Morning everyone! It's my busy week with two dt-creations in a row. LoL How did it get that way? Oh well, it's fun so no complaining. Just tired and a bit sore in my back.

Challenge prize badge

This weeks theme over at the Paper Shelter is "Charm us!" which is very easy, just use a charm on your creation and you can play with us. As always we have the gift voucher worth $30 up for grabs if you play with a TPS product of any kind. Playing with another brand gives you the chance to win 3 digis of your choice.

For this card of mine have I, once again used DP's from Bildmålarna here in Sweden. The image is (of course) from the Paper Shelter. The image is called Christmas Candy fairy. Sweet as sugar isn't she? My Letraset family has been set to work once again. Still looking for a new paper to use but every one are so glossy. I want the surface of the paper to be a little rough. The colours get brighter then and to my eye that looks better. Still it needs to be able and take on all the "ink". My partner brought home some new paper yesterday for me to try. The surface is once again very glossy but the little I have tried it looks ok but a little pale in the colours. We'll see what will happen when I use it "for real". If anyone knows of a paper with a little rougher surface please let me know.

The designer papers are from last years collection of Christmas papers from Bildmålarna by the way. Lovely deep colours. The charm I have used on my card is also from them. And the flowers are from WOC. I have also used a little bow tied with some hemp string and some berry thingies in silver from WOC. My pearls are as usual from Bunny Zoe. The snow effect is once again made with Frantáge in white. My craft room floor is also covered in it and some has gotten stuck. Lucky that this room has not been renovated yet. LoL The oval die cut is from Spellbinders and the lace border is made with a die from Magnolia. My fave ever from them I think, together with the one with stars as I always tend to use that one for boy's cards. 

Love n hugs

This is beautiful. I adore the papers you're using...sigh...it's not being easy living across the pond. I love your coloring of this sweet image...her hair is awesome and her complexion is so perfect. You've mastered "red" and all it's shadings...such a hard thing to do. This card is so pretty and the flowers and diecuts give it a beautiful look. Wonderful card. --Gail

Hej Marie!!

Äntligen är det vår vecka igen (team B):-)
Det är allt lite spännande på tisdagskvällen när den nya utmaningen är nära!! ;-)
Gillar ditt kort MASSOR..och motivet är fantastiskt..har ett ex som ligger färdigmålat som bara väntar på att bli något tjusigt..kanske nästa utmaning?!!

Det där med papper att måla på är inte lätt, jag använde mest ett block med papper gjort för markerspennor, köpte det i artistbutiken här i Kalmar. Albumblad använde jag också en del men upplevde att de "blödde".. akvarellpapper har jag också testat men det suger massor med färg från pennorna..ja det är inte lätt!! Hoppas du hittar rätt tillslut..

Kram Lena :-)
