Making backgrounds 1/2 and two red cards

Kivaa helteisen päivän askaretta, taustapaperien tekoa nurmikolla! Tässä ensimmäinen osa  - punaiset. Ja mansikkaiset kortit niistä; tri Shutter ja neliökortti.
Last week was very hot, I did some background papers in the sun, here's the reds.
 Käytin jotain sabluunoita, erilaisia siveltimiä; viinipakkauksesta revittyä aaltopahvia, tulikin hauskaa raitaa ja ruutua. Väri punainen akryylimaali, laimennettuna vedellä.
Using some masks, different brushes, corrugated cardboard (from wine box), great stripes and chechs. Colour was red acryl paint and water.
 Omat mansikatkin alkavat kypsyä. Tässä Tri shutter kortti, jossa käytetty ruutupaperia ja Basic Grey paperia. Perhosleimasin tullut lehden mukana, mansikkakuva väritetty promarkereilla ja lehdessä 3d Crystal Glazea. Mansikkakivet on maalattu Miranolilla joskus vuosia sitten, ovat ulkona kesät talvet.
 Tri Shutter Strawberry card using those papers and some Basic Grey papers too. Both butterfly and strawberry are freebies. Coloured with ProMarkers and added 3d Crystal Glaze on the leaf.
I've painted those strawberry stones many years  ago!

 Toinen kortti, jossa pohja on kuin mansikkamehua (suolaa märän maalin päällä) ja palanen ruutupaperia.
Distress Ink (walnut stain) kulmissa, erilaisia muotoja, nauhaa ja pitsiä.
Toisessa osassa siniset, jahkas saan pari mansikkalaatikkoa putsattua pakkaseen...
Another card, background is like strawberry juice (used salt on the wet paint)! Distress Ink on the corners; some shapes; lace and a ribbon, gems. There's some blue cards coming as soon as I've freezed some strawberries;-))m

Lapsi on terve kun leikkii pätee varmaan meihin vähän jo iäkkäämpiinkin lapsiin :)
Hyvin olet aikasi käyttänyt! Hienoja kortteja taiteillut noista leikin tuloksista.
Kesä on luovaa aikaa!
