Sea horse ATC's

I got some happy mail and the instant I saw this 
Lost Coast Designs Sea Horse, I was in loooove.

So keeping in mind Wicked Wednesday's this weeks challenge:
Red, grey and teal I started to make some ATC's

I took my Brushos and embossing powders ... and it was total flop.
I throw my cards in the bin .. but my younger daughter saw that
and asked me why I did that ... and maybe I could do something
with them anyway. Soooo, I thought: what's there to loose and started
stamping, inking and plainly had fun with them.

And all though I quite like the misty
look I happened to create by mistake, I'm sorry that

these don't show how wonderful this stamp is, absolutely fab.

I would like to enter to some challenges:
Wicked Wednesday - Red, Grey and Teal (I hope silver goes as a grey ... )
Penny's -  AG
The Paper Shelter - Animal Magic
Tuesday Throwdown - Create your own background (Brushos, ink and black pen)

Bekkah Bloom

Tämä hauska kuva oli vastikää freebienä Bloobellin FB ryhmässä

Värittelin Inktenseillä ja PrismaColoreilla,

Warm Africa with Brushos

Yesterday I took my new Brusho powders and new 
Rubber Dance stamps and started playing.

I sprayed some water on bubble wrap and then added
Brushos and put a watercolorpaper on top.
Got several prints and really liked the result.
I used Brushos for stamping too and when I was
wiping the rest of the color of from my table with a baby wipe 
I decided to wipe my stamped images with that smeared baby wipe
- worked out pretty well, lol.
 # words are chipboards, I just added little DI on them.

For some reason this #selfie ciraf was a fav one for my kids, lol.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Lost Coast Portal to Creativity had a fab countdown
for Valentine's day. The DAY is here and here's my take on the subject.
Valentines day is more of a Friendship day in Finland.

My very first pocket letter ever ...
Had a huge stage fright to start this, 
but the thought just kept coming in my head
- so it had to be done, lol.

I took 2 piece of kraft card stock and 3 ink bads and started stamping,
this was the first point:

and then I just stamped away, lol. Using

We are all a little fragile - AJ spread

When I saw this beautiful yet sad image from
TEW I just knew it was "mine".
She is so nice to colour and so full of feeling...

Image is coloured with Inktense and PrismaColours, 
spread is covered with 3 different DI paints and strips of
pages from an old book. I used StencilGirl stencil and stamps
from Magnolia, Design by Ryn and Ranger. 
Then added touch of colour with DI markers 
on the stamped parts.

Where's the birdie? - ATC

How wicked is this Bloobel's Kitteh?
Very much so and I think it's  been a very,
very bad boy .. all the evidence points at that way...

Feathers are tape, Kitteh is coloured with Inktense and Coloursoft ---
You might wonder, why on world is there that yellow?
Well, my printer decided to draw a yellow line on my
good paper ... so I went with it and added some more.

I'd like to enter this ATC to some challenges

Apriksen ystävänpäivärinki, 4/4

Nämä kortit olisi pitänyt postata jo viikonloppuna,
mutta aina ei mene niin kuin Strömsössä...

Ringin viimoisena laitoin minä ainekset menemään
ja tälläisen setin kehittelin

Lily of the Valleyn papereita, valmiita korttikuvia ja vähän 
"hilkettä" koristellupuolelle.
Kaikki 3 muuta leidiä ovat jo saaneetkin ihanaa aikaiseksi.
Kiitos ihanasta rinkeilyseurasta!

Tein molemmista kuvista kortit

Tähän sain insppiration Sketch Saturdayn luonnoksesta ja taitaapa
teemaltaan sopia myös Morgan's Art Worldin "kukkia" haasteeseen 
sekä Crafting from the Heart "kaikki käy" haasteeseen.

Toinen korteista sai inspiraation Tuesday Morning Sketches luonnoksesta

Ja muutamaan muuhunkin haasteeseen arvelin tämän hellyttävän
kortin laittaa:
Deep Ocean - sydämiä
Moo-Mania - sydämiä
Through the Purple Haze - Jaa rakkautta
