From the Heart - huhtikuun kuva

Aika viimetinkaan jäi tämän söpön pooserin korttiin saaminen, mutta vielä taidan keritä osallistua From the Heart:n kuukausihaasteeseen, :=D

Paperit nappasin pöydän silppukasasta, kukat olen joskus johonkin pyöritellyt mihin eivät sitten passanneetkaan ja possu väritetty ColourSofteilla, vähän 3D efectiä pään kohdalla...

Muutamaan haasteeseen:
Cute Card Thursday - teksti
Crafty Gals - pilkkuja tai raitoja

Still time to join Oddball's Spring Challenge

Still time to join Oddball's SPRING challenge! We'd love to see you spring creations, you don't need to use Oddball image to join in, but ofcourse we love to see these cuties. Hop in and you'll have a change to win some, :=)

My card is not very spring like (since it was not made for the challenge) but I had so much fun to make it and a idea came to me when I saw these awesome bottlecap sheets Lizzy have in her Etsy store.

I've used Blue Zombie -image. I cropped both images from the sheet, then printed girl x4 and heart x6. Use my diecut to cut them out (scissors for the small hearts) and layered pieces with 3D stickers. Really like how it turned out and it was so quick to make.

Left of Center has a great theme this week: Fun Frights for the Kids and we have a gorgeous sponsor:

The images there are so delicate and gorgeous!!

The one I got to play with is Little Crow Witch and since I had some more image from ADFD I decided to print out some and colour them with Copics.

You could make a story and play with these - well, actually I did play with these and made my girls giggle... But this is what I had in my mine:

Yes - I know, not very frightening, but then again, you never know what children might consider frightening, my younger doughter saw nightmares about Mole from Frimbles, so maybe giant daffodill forest could be scary too, :=D

group of incredibly tallented DT's in LOC and this time I was inspired by unbelievably creative English Lady, she makes such a amazing stuff, so I decided to try something different too:

So, what do you think? Great way to use digis? Just printed it on "T-Shirt transfer" -sheet and ironed it and that's it, my new fav T-shirt, :=) . AND it was a step out of my confort zone and I'm happy I took that step.

Oddball is for the good cause: Canadian seals need help! You can read all about it from Lizzy's blog.

So "How can I help?", you might ask, well, Lizzy has this super cute seal line in her shop and she is giving all the income of it (yes 100%) to IFAW's Canadian Seal Campaign!

Here's something I made from these adorable cuties:

Like the sentiment? Here it is:

STAMPlorations - Sketch Challenge 31

It's early days of April and time for first STAMPlorations sketch challenge for this month. And it's such a nice sketch:

I had a little Gelly plate some time ago, and being inspired by Shery, I desided to give it a try. Must say, it is not that easy that it looks like and I was very close coming to think that this would be my first and last time I'll use it ... My acrylic paints were quite runny and all that I could make was a big MESS. Then I remembered that I also have some cheap acrylic tubes from Lidl. And they worked so much better. Not a great result, but I had fun and I'm keeping my Gellyplate, :)

I used same paint for a black and white paper with Old Rose Prints -stencil and the embossed text is from Celebrate Artsy -stamp set, then I added some bling and a festive B-day card was borned.

Go and check out what other DT's have done (we also have two great GDT joining us: Kim and Pooja ) and join in to a challenge, we'd love to see what you make.

I'd like to enter to some challenges:
Sweet Stamps - flowers

Dilly Beans - mustaa ja valkoista

Näin, että Dilly Beans on jälleen avannut haastebloginsa ja että musta/valko -teemalla mennään. Niinpä kaivelin suikaleläjästäni pöydältä kaikki mustavalkoiset suikut ja lähdin siitä työstämään, :).

Kuva on nimeltään #297 Ragdoll Ruby ja värittelin ColourSofteilla, joo - o, tais olla 5 eri sävyä käytössä ja lopputulos näyttää lähinnä lyijykynätyöltä, :=D.
Lisäksi tuikkailin vähän sydän-, teksti- ja tikkaustarroja sekä sydänstanssilla veivasin pari papersuikulaa.
