This weekend i have enjoyed the company of allmost 80 crafty chicks at Trøndersaksa in Trondheim, Norway. We had a totally exciting and amazing time together. Such a talented and amazing bunch of girls. We laughed, talked and not to mention.... crafted long into the small hours. I just really didn`t wanted it to end so soon. Thanks girls, for a fabulous time. See you again next year!!!
Allthough we had a lot of fun, we also had to do what we ultimately were there for....crafting! At this point i only have edited the photo`s of this card i`m going to show you. I had started it a couple of weeks before the convention but i have been so stuck. But as stubborn as i am, i hadn`t given it up yet. And finally i got my craft juices flowing, lol.
Lately i`ve been playing around with some mixed media. I`m so in love with the sprays from Lindy`s Stamp Gang. The colours i have used here is the August limited edition spray set. Such vibrant an lush colours. Don`t know if you can see it, but the shimmer on the red and lilac colours are just amazing! And i love how this turned out.
I used some Heavy Gesso from Prima, creating some texture using the Tim Holtz flourish and the "Art is" stencil from Crafters Workshop. Next i stamped with the Grunge Harlequin stamp from Visible Image.
The frame is embossed with powders from Lindy`s. Loved how the green shimmer appeared.
Other products i have used are chipboard from Dusty Attic, metal from Korthobby here in Norway, Bling from Prima, Bo Bunny and Marianne design. The centre piece is made by myself. I was inspired by Gabrielle Pollacco on the heart and wings. These are made from the Martha Stewart paper clay.
I have also used flowers i recieved in a kit i bought long ago, so i don`t know the manufacturer. But the wood piece is Prima.
As a final touch i finished it all off with some glass pearls and micro pearls from Prima.
I hope you liked my card. And if you have any questions just feel free to ask me. I will help in any way i can.
