Fantasy, Tattoos & Baby Dragons!

Det er vel ingen hemmelighet at jeg er kjempefan av alt som har med alver, drager og alt som har med fantasy å gjøre.. Omtrent annenhvert stempel jeg har er fantasy relatert! 
Alle tattisene mine også :) Drager, pixie og islandsk rune fra Margit Sandemo sin 'Heksemesteren' serie. Det blir stort sett fantasy eller sci-fi når jeg leser bøker eller ser tv-serier og filmer ~ Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Grimm, Once Upon a Time, LOTR, Supernatural etc. 

Akkurat nå leser jeg InkSpell fra InkHeart trilogien av Cornelia Funke. Så filmen på nytt for en tid tilbake, og nå gikk jeg lei av å ikke vite 'hva som skjedde videre' etterpå filmen... det kommer visst ikke en oppfølger? Så jeg kjøpte bøkene InkHeart, InkSpell & InkDeath. Tror det man fargelegger blir litt farget av det man leser også! :)

Creative Fingers utfordring denne uken #42. er sponset av AuroraWings, og som alltid er det 'Lag-hva-du-vil' med et valgfritt tema som denne gangen er 'Ramme ~ for eks. ramme inn et motiv eller lag en ramme! :) 

~ You are one of my nicest thoughts... My Friend ~

It's no secret I'm a big fan of Fairies & Dragons.. or really any kind of magical fantasy creature! ♥ I luv reading and watching Fantasy & Sci-fi, like Grimm, Once Upon a Time, LOTR, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones & Supernatural etc. 

Currently I'm reading InkSpell from the InkHeart trilogy by Cornelia Funke, and I think my inking and digi choices has been colored by that :) Saw the movie again recently, and I was too curious to see how it all went ~ as it seems no sequel will follow? :( Brendan Fraser is one of my fave actors as well, like in the Mummy! ♥

Almost every other stamp of mine is a fantasy one ~ and I got a pixie tattoo, celtic seahorse dragon, chinese fire dragon (my zodiac sign), and on my wrist I even have an icelandic 'galder' (Heksemesteren by Margit Sandemo) ~ a white rune for good health among other things.. never did come true however!.. *lol* ;)

I think I prefer people to animals as I tend to put mostly people on my cards, as I see by a quick count... they look better on confirmation and wedding cards for sure, but I really do enjoy animals on cards too, and especially together with people ~ for the big cuddle factor! :)
