It’s coloured with Pro- and FlexMarkers (see list of colours further down).

Happy Birthday @ Inky Chicks

Hi again, thanks for visiting my blog.
I'm here with my DT-project for this fortnights challenge over at
Inky Chicks
The theme for this challenge is a nice and easy one:
Happy Birthday

Sponsor for this challenge is
All Dressed Up

I have used the stamp called Fairy Magic for my project.
I wanted to make a papergiftbag, for this week challenge.
I coloured my image with ProMarkers and Glitterstickles (Glitterstickles on the butterflies and on the fairies wings).
DPs are from Pion, with inked edges (DistressInk WalnutStain). The backingpaper, behind the imagepanel, is a glittercardstock - thought it would look nice with glitteredges around the fairyimage...
On the butterflies (dies from Cheery Lynne) I used Glitterstickles.

On the back of the bag I used a greetingstamp from one of Storytellers new stampsets

Mermaids @ My Besties

Hello, and good morning to you all.
The last days have been absolutely beautiful. Sunny and warm. Hedda and I have been on a short little trip, shopping, going to cafès, I had the car controlled (nothing wrong with it, thank heaven!)
And of course I bought some new crafting "stuff", only "necessities" though...��

Today there's a new challenge over at
My Besties International
This time with the theme

You just have to visit the challengeblog, to see all the lovely Mermaidcards the rest of the DTgirls have maid! Wonderful creations, I promise!
If you join the challenge you can win lovely My Besties images too

Sherri has some wonderful mermaids in her shops, where you of course can find of her images too
Sherri’s Etsy Store
Scrapbook Stamp Society
My Besties Store
You'll find the mermaid images gathered here

I have used IMG044 for my card.
The image is coloured with ProMarkers and some Glitterstickles. On top of the image I put a ziplock bag, filled with a little blueish coloured hairgel (with some tiny stars and a little glitter in). This gives such a wonderful illusion of water, I think.
The DPs used on the card are from Graphic45, and the dies are from a Spellbinders set.
The seashells are shorefindings from many years back (washed and dried, of course), now I've only got 1 left, so it might be time for a new "seashellfindingtrip". The shells are glittered a little.
The circleshaped hole in the middle is made with Spellbinders Circles Large. Around it I used LiquidPearls to make a pearlborder. In the corners I put on halfpearls.
The seahorse"charm" is actually one of Heddas old pearls - oh, she has so much lovely pearls and stash from younger days, that Ican use almost free now �� 
Paperedges are inked with DistressInk WalnutStain.

Inside the card. DP from Graphic45 here too. The stamped greeting is from Storyteller.

On the back I used one of the cut out sheets from Graphic45 as well

Closeup of the image and the "water". What looks like orange brushstrokes are actually a kind of glitter (one of those things you buy, then never find any use of - now I've found use for it)

I hope to see your card in the
Mermaid challenge
over at
My Besties

Brown Sugar #103 - Sea & Sand
Simply Create Too #66 - For a Child

Things With Wings @ I ❤️ ProMarkers

 Good Wednesday Morning
And it seems as it can be a wonderful Wednesdayday at Røst. Yesterday, even earlier this morning, the fog was laying thick, thick, thick over the island, but now it's almost gone. The sun is shining, the wind has calmed (not completely calm, though), and the temperature is rising - lovely!
Well, I didn't come here to write a weather report...

It's time for a new challenge over at

My card is in what I like to call a kind of "shabby-vintage" style...
The paperedges are very lightly distressed before I inked them with DistressInk WalnutStain. 
The flowers were white, but I gave them a little inkbrush as well, then a little glittertouch - love a little glitter...

The imagepanel is attached to the card with 3D-tape, so there's place to tuck a little tag underneath it:
