My card today is featuring the lovely 'Flapper Twirl Girl' from our awesome sponsor Lemon Shortbread in challenge #126. over at Creative Fingers! The Theme is as always 'Anything Goes', create whatever you wish, and you are most welcome to join in! :)

She reminds me of the Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher from the tvseries with the same name, Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries. It's a fabulous series, reminiscent of Poirot and Miss Marple ~ just way more colorful, funny, sassy and romantic! 
Great cast, set in Melbourne Australia, and it's really interesting to watch the 1920's from a liberated feminist point of view, as well as getting a fairly accurate historylesson! Most series from that era are kinda frumpish... ;) See a trailer on youtube, and go bingewatch it on Netflix if you haven't seen it yet!

Cupcake Kitten


AuroraWings ~ Mitzi Sato-Wiuff ~ lager de nydeligste motiver og kjempesøte dyr ♥ Denne pusekatten har fanget noen muffins og passet perfekt til en 80 år gammel dame som er glad i katter og å bake kaker :)

Da jeg skulle diecutte rammen til motivet oppdaget jeg at alle de små bitene satt fast inni diesen. Vanligvis dytter jeg dem bare ut med min Quickstik ~ men denne gangen, siden alle sammen satt fast, fikk jeg ideen om å bruke tape og forgyllingsflak / bladgull :) Se bilder lengre ned.

AuroraWings ~ Mitzi Sato-Wiuff ~ is an artist who creates the most gorgeous images and the cutest little animals ♥ This little kittykat really loves sweet treats and has catched some yummy cupcakes! Such a perfect motif for an 80 year old lady who loves cats and baking :)

Inlaid Diecut Gilding ~ When I was diecutting the frame for this image I noticed all the little bits was still stuck inside the die. Usually I just poke them out with my Quickstik pick-up tool, but since they all were there it seemed such a waste... So I got the idea to stick them onto tape and use gilding flakes! It has probably been done before this way, but for me it was a eureka moment, that the negative diecut bits could actually be the art instead of useless scrapbits for the trash! The images below are kindof self explanatory but I added a tutorial text to make it easy if anyone wants to try it :) 

...When you got all the little bits n pieces stuck in the die...

Keep My Secret Well..


Papirplanetens utfordring #15. ~ for mars mnd. har 'Vintage og/eller Shabby Chic' som tema ♥ Vi håper du blir inspirert til å delta! 
 Det nydelige motivstemplet jeg har brukt på mitt vintage kort er fra Sweet Pea Stamps og Anna Marine, som du kan finne her hos Papirplaneten sammen med mange andre flotte SPS stempler. De lager ikke lengre stempler, så disse er sjeldne å få tak i nå! :)


'Congratulations on the day / Happy Birthday'

My vintage card today is DT inspiration for PapirPlaneten, an norwegian challengeblog and craft shoppe. The February theme is all about Vintage and/or Shabby Chic! The lovely motif stamp is from Sweet Pea Stamps and the artist Anna Marine

While I painted this girl, she reminded me of Clary from the Mortal Instruments so I made her hair red ♥ It's a book series which I'm currently reading by Cassandra Clare. (If you're a fan of the series, think City of Glass, Idris and Alicante to get the same old-world feel I was thinking of). I almost attempted to draw some runes on her also (shadowhunter tattoos), but refrained in case I messed up and ruined an already colored image ;) I absolutely love this YA fantasy series, and have already bought the Infernal devices set to read next! Magnus Bane is my favourite character so I'm hoping for more origin stories on him ♥ If you've got Netflix you might have seen the 'new' tv-series or even the movie they made with a whole other cast several years ago, which is great, but they both differs alot from the Shadowhunter novels ~ which are SO much better :)
