Mixed media canvas

Hello everyone, today I have something special to show you. Last weekend I attended a Finnabair class in Lund, Sweden. This is something I´ve wanted to do for a long time and I can say it was absolutely FANTASTIC!!! Anna is such a delightful person, so very creative and inspiring. Loved it!

I can hardly believe that I´ve created this, lol.

This is a canvas made with embellishments, stencils, pastes, gels and paints from Finnabair. I don´t hink I can describe how I made this in Swedish even less in English, lol, so you just have to enjoy the look of it. But don´t hesitate to ask if you have a question, I will try my best to answer them :) 

Have a lovely day
Hugs Lisa

Candy Shop

Hi all!

In my second post for today I have a card to show you using one of the new backgrounds from www.kennykstamps.com. I have used Candy Shop together with Queens Cutie, one of the clearstamp sets also available in the shop. I went to the local candy shop to see if I could find any candy to use for my card and when I found a pink and an orange lollipop I knew what color to use. 

I colored her with Distress Ink re-inkers in picked raspberry and ripe persimmon, and the Candy Shop background is colored with FC Polychromos pencils. The KennyK challenge starting today have a theme of using flowers so I made this very big flower using a Tim Holtz die. I found a piece of candy to fit the center of the flower.

Welcome to join our challenge starting today at Club KennyK!

Here is my card using Fabby Farah:

I´ve made it with a photo theme using a lot of my photo related dies and embellishments. I´ve tried to make it look like an old photo, so she is colored in sepia with my Distress Ink re-inkers and then I´ve used UTEE over and around the image to make crackles and then Distress Ink Walnut Stain to color the crackles with.

Dies from Tim Holtz, Sizzix, Magnolia and Cottage Cutz
