About me

Mitt foto
I am a creative mother of two and grandmother of four wonderful kids. I like to create with the grandchildren so they learn to play without toys. Have always drew, painted and stitched. Like to reuse old things. Maybe a chair gets a new style or a few plates becomes a cookie dish. So create cards and paintings fit me. Lives in Sweden, Karlstad

I have use the image "Angel with Baby" from Delicious Doodles and color her 
with Tombows and heat emboss her hair! It´s a little vintage feeling over it!!
In the middle of the die cut have I a metal heart and the other embellis are

My DT card this week at Fitztown




 
I have made this card with Cameo 3 from the lovely Cameo Collection
and color her with Tombows. 
And I used the same water I had to the shimmering watercolors, 
for an extra shimmery effect on the image. 
The theme this time is Use a die and/or Punch, so therefore did I place her 
in a frame made with a die cut from Spellbinders. 
I spray it with a Copper Mist, just so lovely!!
My few embellishments are flowers, ribbons, heart and a metal star!!


Have a super nice day!!
