DT Charisma - Make your own embellishments

It's Thursday and that means Charisma time again! We've got some great sponsors with us, as always, just check these out:

Wanna have a go at one of these prizes? All you have to do is get creative with embellishments. That is making your own. Here's my take on the task:

I made the flowers myself with some (light weight) watercolor paper, a heart punch, Distress Ink (Tumbled Glass) a brad and some water. I simply inked the hearts, punched a little hole in the bottom of the hearts to attach the brad, then fanned them out and gave them a good spritz of water before I scrunched them up, folded them back out and let them dry. Really easy. :)

I used a kraft card base, tied on some Divine Twine (Aqua) that I got from lovely Elin and added a button from my stash. A simple scalloped circle from watercolor paper, inked with Distress Ink (Tumbled Glass) and a lovely sentiment from Norsk Stempelblad, stamped in Archival Ink (Coffee) that reads: "Life doesn't have to be perfect to be fantastic"! Finally I topped it all with a bunch of pearls from Storyteller and Scrapbook Memories (Panduro), I believe. And that's it for today.

Can't wait to see how you're gonna get creative with the 'bellies this week! :) Need some more inspiration? Just hop on over to the challenge blog and check out the other girls work too.

I'm back!

Jeg har hatt en lang og sårt tiltrengt ferie, men nå er jeg tilbake og har til og med laget et kort!
*I've had a long and much needed vacation but I'm back now and I even made a card!*

Arkene jeg har brukt er fra Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics kolleksjonen. Jeg skjønner ikke helt hva jeg gjør galt med bildene mine, for fargene i arkene passer mye bedre til fargene i motivet enn det ser ut til her. Satinbåndet er fra The Ribbon Retreat i fargen Mauve. Blomstene er fra Wild Orchid Crafts. Sommerfuglene er en Martha Stewart punch.
*The papers I've used are from Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics colletion. I have no idea what I do wrong with my photos because the colors in the papers matches the colors in the image a lot better than it seems here. The satin ribbon is from The Ribbon Retreat in the color Mauve. The Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch.*

Angelina's balloons fra Mo Manning passet godt til 2 åringen Mie, så jeg måtte bare bruke det. Fargelagt med Pro- og FlexMarkere denne gangen. (Se fargene jeg har brukt nedenfor.)
Rundt motivet har jeg svertet med Distress Ink Milled Lavender og stemplet i samme farge med et stempel fra KaiserCraft.
*Angelina's balloons from Mo Manning suited the 2 year old Mie perfectly, so I just had to use it. Colored with Pro- and FlexMarkers this time. (Colors I've used are posted below.)
Around the image I've inked with Distress Ink Milled Lavender and stamped in the same color with a stamp from KaiserCraft.*

Det var alt fra meg i dag, forhåpentligvis blir det ikke like lenge å vente på neste post. ;-)
