ADFD - Enkeli

Tämän kuukauden ADFD:n alekupongilla shoppasin omaksikin yllätyksekseni tämän kauniin enkelin. En tykkää lapsienkeli kuvista, mutta tämä enkeli näyttää - kauniilta enkeliltä. Kuva tuli jpg ja png formaateissa, mikä on todella kiva, asettelin png kuvan digipaperin päälle, tallensin toisen kuvan niin, että mekko oli läpinäkyvä ja laitoin kuvasta mekon osan samaa sarjaa olevan toisen digipaperin päälle. Säästyi mustetta ja paperia...

Kuvaan värittelin Promarkkereilla ja tähtiin laitoin kimallekynää. Teksti on FinStampperin ja kuvassa olevat pienet palleroiset täytin PearlMakerillä, siipiin hiukan kimalleliimaa .... taitaa olla tämän vuoden eka joulukortti. Siitä se lähtee...

SLS Lines - New release / GDT

There is six new wicked images at SLS lines June New Release.
Voodoo King to match the Queen, 

To see, what SLS's wabulously tallented DT's have done from these awesome images, hop here

And for a change to win some of SLS brilliant images, why not enter "Use Die cuts / Punches" -challenge HERE.
I used Voodoo King to make a spread on my old childrens book, and since it is a Voodoo image, I just had to buy him a doll.

I used copic to colour, some die cut feathers and digipapers - made a doll paper of my own, :). Also made a sentiment, and if you like to have it, feel free:

There is a little extra joke on this. I did say it's a spread made on old childrens book, so I left the other side as it was and it looks like this:

It says: Little patient is wrapped inside of the blanket. Who is ill? 

I'd like to enter to some challenges:

Image that I got is called Marie Antoinette, after seeing Mo's fab card (here), I knew, I had to go on different road colouring the image - can't beat Mo's purple hair, lol.

So I only used greys with touch of blue. This is not a card, it's a cover of the old childrens book that I bought from flea market (0,2€).

New month - new daaaark challenge at Dream in Darkness, where anything goes as long as it's daaaark.

We are proud and exited to have a AWESOME sponsor this month:

You really should visit Circus, it's a place full of amazing things...
I got so caried away that I made not 1, not 2 but 3 digi canvases. And to think that I had (well, I still haven't) no knowlegde of how PhotoShop works, 3 is a lot, lol.

So I played with English language (with the help of other CT members at DiD) and digital images from sets: Art Dollies and More Brains and Spray Alpha (the last image). Had some bloody fun with these, hehheheh

I'd like to enter Smudgy Antics (first pic; white, black and red) and SLS (well, this would be quite dark fantacy...)
