Challenge #5 at My Besties Norway

Hey everyone!

It`s been a while since i`ve posted anything in here and i`m really sorry about that. My life has been cramped up with a lot lately and the crafting has taken a tour into oblivion for a while. I hope you can forgive me :-)

Well i am back with my contribution for My Besties DT. I think this image is just so adorable and it is one of the new Halloween digis by Sherry Baldy. The image i have used is called IMG 043 With Kitty

I allmost mucked up my image when i was doing my card yesterday. I was going to use some black cheesecloth behind the image just to make my card a little bit spookier. The only thing is that i didn`t have any of it in black so i had to colour it myself. I found my little bottle of Black Soot distress ink and started colouring the darn thing, lol. When dried i was going to put it on my card. But as i was handling it i noticed that it still left some ink here and there. You can imagine my panic when i noticed i had some inked fingermarks on my image... Eeeek...panic!!! I was allready late with my card and i didn`t have the time to colour up my image again. Thank God that the marks only were on the sides of the image and that i could cover them with some flowers. Otherwise my hubby would have had a really bad saturday evening with a grumpy whife in the same room, hahahaha.

Oh well let get down to buisness shall we? The theme for this fortnight is.... Yeah you guessed right:

Vintage/Shabby chic over at WhoopsiDaisy

Hey peeps!

Today the new challenge has gone live over at WhoopsiDaisy  . The theme for this time is 

Vintage / Shabby chic

I went for shabby chic for my creation this time. The image is from Sheet #451.
This theme is one of my favs. I just love anything vintage and shabby looking stuff.

Papers i have used are from Maja Design, (Vintage spring basics). Dies are from Spellbinders, Magnolia and Marianne Design. I have painted the edges with white gesso blended with a little sand to get some extra texture. I have also used Frantage Embossing enamel (Shabby pink) on the edges of the image.

Colours i have used:

Skin: Vanilla, Saffron, Oatmeal, Sunkissed pink, Tan
Hair: Cocoa, Mustard, Buttercup, Saffron
Dress: Trick or Treat, Dusky rose, Pink mittens

This cluster of flowers are from several companies. Mulberry Crafts, Wild Orchid Crafts and Bi-kuben. The lace is also from WOC.

I also made a mini pebble. Ok i didn`t actually make the glass pebble, lol. But i cut out a little rose and glued it on to the back of the glass pebble to make my own finished one. I think it came out quite nice and perfect for this card.

Ok...that`s it from me today. We would very much like you to come over to WhoopsiDaisy and join in our new challenge. Hope to see you there! 
Happy Crafting everyone!
