Sweet Pea-Daisy Fairie

Hei på dere!:)
Tusen takk for alle nydelige kommentarer på kortet mitt, og Sweet Pea's 2 års jubileums-Blog Hop..(puuuh..det ble et laangt ord, hihi). Blog Hope'en fortsetter, og har du lyst til å vinne noen av disse vakre motivene fra Sweet Pea Stamp, så kan du bli med HER, og/eller på min CANDY som fortsatt går, med mange vakre motiv stempler ifra Sweet Pea♥!:)

Idag har jeg laget et kort med det nydelige motivet Daisy-Fairie, designet av SPS nye artist-Joanne Schempp! Og dette stempelet kan du finne på  Sheet 1-Plate 130.  "Vakringen" finnes både som singel, og  på plate med 3 andre nydelige motiver:).
Utrolig vakkert og sommerlig motiv, som passer perfekt til en mai-konfirmasjon♥!

Motivet er, som vanlig i disse dager;D, fargelagt med Prisma Premier Pencils, og runt henne har jeg stanset ut en ramme av 2 Spellbinders oval for å få litt mere dybde:)

Ooops..Et staffelikort!!:)) Blomstene har, også her, fått litt hvit Gesso og glitter:)
 Og litt zooom da:)). Jeg liker dette motivet veldig godt, og jeg elsker jo prestekrager så:)

Tilslutt en liten fairie charms!:)

Tusen takk for besøket, og velkommen igjen!:)
Nå er det ut å nyte solstrålene og alt som spirer og gror!!:)
Det er såå utrolig vakker måned vi går inn i nå!
Ønsker alle en knakande flott og solrik dag:).
Go'klem, Ellen

Jeg blir med på disse utfordringene:

DT Gode Minner- kort og tilhørende tag med-"Graphic45"

Håper dere alle har noen deilige vårdager, og får tid til å nyte alt som spirer, gror og den vakre grønnfargen som pynter opp i naturen nå!!:)
Her kommer jeg med et noe annerledes kort, enn dere sikker er vant til å se fra denne kanten:))
For april DT-ufordringen hos Gode Minner fikk jeg ark fra Graphic 45 "Curtain Call", og først så tenkte jeg....hodebry..;DD, men satte meg ned, og begynte på dette kortet og den tilhørende tag'en. 
Synes arkene var sååå lekre at jeg dro bort for å kjøpe noen flere, til papirsamlingen min,hihi.
Så her kommer et bilderas!:))

 Det er stort sett elementer fra design papirene jeg har brukt, men pyntet opp med Tim Holtz filmstrip's, rosett-dies og et "Kiss" charms:)
 Nydelig motiv..hmmm, er det fra "Tatt av vinden", eller er det fra "Bonnie and Clyde"?:)
Filmstativet er klippet ut, og satt på 3d puter. Den sorte fjæren har jeg hatt liggende lenge, og "Cinema-billetten" er fra arket:)
 Laget en tilhørende tag til kortet. Har rufset, og svertet alle kanter med Distress- Walnut Stain. Både på kortet og tag'en  har jeg brukt T.H. Distress-sort bazill under mønsterarkene.

 Tim H. filmstrip ribbon, og "Story" Adage ticket, som er festet med stifter:) Hull forsterkeren er også fra Tim Holtz. Hyssingen er lagt i kaffebad, så den ser gammel ut!:))

 Baksiden med plass til å skrive en liten hilsen:)
Punchet ut retro blomster og satt på svarte perler.
Stemplet "Friendship" fra Stempelglede.

Puuuh, det var alt for denne gang!:) 
Har dere følgt med helt hit, så er jeg imponert:)).
Tusen takk for alle inspirerende kommentarer, og ha en strålende vårdag!
Klem, Ellen

Skriver disse innleggene på engelsk (så godt jeg kan;DD), så slipper jeg å skrive såå veldig masse. Blir nok "mas" allikevel herifra, tenker jeg,hihi.
Dette er innlegg nr 2 idag, og klokken er bare 12.30!:)) Håper jeg kan forandret på det for senere!
Ønsker i hvertfall alle en knallgod og fredelig søndag!!:))

I love the cute look on this beautiful girl's face, and just had to make something bright and cheerful. She was the very first Sweet Pea image I colored, and at that time...I was "in love":)). This image is from the talented-
Ching-chou kuik's Fantasy Art Collection and is called 'Love is Gone', and you can find her here plate 29.
You can get her as a single stamp as well.:)
So here is my "Sweet Pea" card, soft and simple:). I want the lovely image to be the main of card:)
