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

Love Paris...





I rarely use patterned paper for the background but now I gave it a try...
Here have I use Uptown Girl Casandra from Art by Miran and color
her with Polychromos. 
Bought this stamp of the Eiffel Tower, thought it fit well with this image!!
Reminds me of the trip we did in November...
Heat embossed the tower so it would seem a little more against the background.
My embellis are sentiment, swirl corner, lace, ribbon, 
pearl, stickles, leaf and flowers.

Have a lovely weekend

Out of my comfort zone.....


This is not color I use to work in but love them anyway...
I use the image Dragon from Ppinkydolls and color her with Polychromos.
Put her on a die cut which I colored with an ink pad.
The background is a paper with a lots of dotts and the edges got a shadow of white.
My embellis are leaf, flowers, pistil, Stickles and a double bow.

Have a super nice day

Time for a challenge...



Over at INKY Impressions starts a new challenge today and the theme is
"Glitter & Gloss"
I use the image Angelica Crafting and color her with Polychromos.
At the top have I use a roller stamp with crafting motives and heat embossing.
I have also used heat embossing on the foam heart and die cut.
The background paper is a shimmering and the only embellis is flowers with Stickles.
The camera has not really captured all the glitter on the card but hope that it shows a bit anyways.

Have a crafting day out  there!!
