I have made something totally different from my last projects  this time. It`s cute, its vintage – with a tagJ

I have used papers from Pion Design, the tag is Creatables from Marianne Design, the border punch is from Martha Stewart. I have used Spellbinders dies. I have used Tim Holtz distress ink ( vintage photo) on the edges, and Tattered Angels Chalkboard on the flowers and butterflies.

Lets light a candle.

It`s been a tragic weekend in Norway – with so many young people killed at Utøya and some in Oslo, but we will not be silenced or let the man who did this win. We will stand together and fight for our democratic rights and an open society. Yesterday many people light a candle in thousands of homes and in front of the Oslo Church, let it be the sign of hope and let it  shine for those who have lost their lives or lost someone close, my thoughts and compassion goes to you.
At first I didn’t think it would be right to publish something, but then I realized that this was just the thing I had to do…… so here is my project. We just have to keep on doing the things we love and show the world that we won`t be stopped.

I started out with this – and had an Idea;
I painted almost everything with black Adirondack acrylic paint from Ranger, and then went over it with a light stroke of Making Memories Gold paint to get the patinated effect. The key and the large wings are Grungeboard from Tim Holtz, colored with distress ink colors; Broken China, Peeled Paint, and Black Soot. The small key, heart, small birdcage, pen nib, sprocket gear, the metallic clock, crowns, small wings and birds are all Tim Holtz.The 2 large buttons are from Graphics45. The large Bird cage on the front is from KaiserCraft and I have painted it with black and gold. On the left side in front I have used lacework and added some 3D molding paste. I have sprayed Tattered Angels Glimmer mist an Chalkboard on the molding paste, the large butterfly, the flowers and the 2 small stars.Colors used; Juniper, Jazz Blue, Slate for the most – and on some things a little bit of Snow Queen mist and Peacock Chalkboard.

 On the backside I have painted the large star with black and gold (it was silver colored), I have also used spinners, hitch fasteners, metallic flower and leaf from Tim Holtz. I have also used a car fuse, and on the front a fluorescent tube.  The bottlecap is filled with molding paste, and 2 buttons , and is also sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer mist. Around the large key I have used regular wire that I have painted in black and gold. I have used Martha Stewart punch around the box together with a chain. The sign says”Grattis” which is “slang “ for Congratulations.

Sommerutfordring hos Heidis Hobbystuggu

Det er sommer og ekstra lang innleveringsfrist hos Heidis Hobbystuggu. Stikk over der og bli med på utfordring nr 4.
Denne gangen er tema å lage et kort til en MANN. Ikke gutt eller baby, men et "barskt" manne kort. Tema er valgfritt men en liten ekstra vri blir at kortet skal ha en tekst eller overskrift men det er ikke lov å bruke tekst stempler eller digistempler.
(digistempel motiv er lov, men teksten skal ikke være digi eller stemplet, skriv for hånd, bruk diecuts bokstaver eller andre alfabet osv)
Siden jeg har fått plass på DT til Heidis Hobbystuggu med start i september deltar jeg ikke i konkurransen, men jeg hadde så lyst å prøve meg på oppgaven allikevel, så her er mitt "bidrag":-)

Oops I forgot to translate – sorry …. Here I go;

It`s summer and you can use extra long time on the ongoing challenge at
Heidis Hobbystuggu. Pop over there and have a go on the no 4 challenge.
This time the theme is to make a card for a MAN. Not a baby or boy, but a tough mans card. The theme is optional, but you have to use a text or title that`s not a digi- or stamped image.
(f.i. use handwriting, diecuts, stickers a.s.o)
Bacause I have become a DT member at Heidis Hobbystuggu– starting in September, I`m not competing in this challenge – but I wanted to have a go at it anywayJ

The birdcage is from Kaiser Kraft – colored with TH Distress Ink Black Soot. The wings behind the clock is from My Minds Eye (if I don`t remember wrong), the clock is from a 45Graphic paper and the journaling tag on the back is from 7Gypsies.

To someone close. A friend like you is rare." The papers are from Prima and Fancy Pants and frames from Spellbinder.
