Puppy Love

If I write just nonsense today you have to forgive me.
My fiancee and I have travelled to Oslo and back to Lofoten
again in 30 hours. In that time we spent about 5 hours in the car,
3 hours on a plane, and 2 magical hours was spent at the Muse concert!
It was my birthday gift from Tony, and it was the best gift ever!
My birthday was in January, and I spent most of December hinting
totally discrete of course ;) The concert was amazing,
and I still feel high from it, or maybe it is the fact that I have slept
about 8 hours combined the last two nights?
My pillow is calling me right now, I can hear it. ;)

First I just want to show you a card I finished today.
I had the image all inked up already. 


I have used papers from Maja Design,
my favorite ones! 




This is the Tilda that came with the Magnolia Ink,
and this is the first time I ink her up.
I thought she would be hard to color,
but actually she was not that bad.
I used Distress Reinkers,
Star Dust Stickles on some of the details,
and Liquid Pearl around her and around the swirls. 


I have used flowers and seem binding ribbon from
Wild Orchid Crafts, the pearl is from Ribbon Girl,
and I also have some buttons and smaller pearls.
I dabbed in a lot of acrylic paint to tone down the pink colors
and get a shabby look. 


I have used a Doohickey Star Die, and also
a Doohickey Swirl Die. The twine is from WOC,
and I got the bird charm from Kutt Ut. 



The card is for my sister, so I put her name in it in glittering letters.
I hardly ever use letters in their original form,
I just love the look when they are white and thick with Star Dust.
The lace is from Ribbon Girl. 



Almost all the flowers where "personalized" today.
They where just a bit big, so I removed the bottom layer
and cut them a bit flatter to make smaller roses etc,
and like I sayd, I added paint and also a bit of glitter here and there. 


The entire card was pretty much soaked in Chalkboard Glimmer Mist,
so I had to add a picture taken in the evening sun just to show of a little
hint of how it all sparkle. ;)
