Making backgrounds 2/2 and 3 blue cards

Toinen osa itsetehdyistä taustapapereista, nyt vuorossa siniset, mm. center step card merirosvolla.
Second part of making background papers, today I'll show the blues.
 Tässä linkki osa 1 - Here's the link to the part 1
 Center Step card; image: Sweet Pea, colouring with AquaMarkers, Sakura Clear Star, text inside: Hip hip hurraa! Pikkaisen piti varoa ettei kortti lentänyt järveen!
 60's bikini girl, free image, all papers and flower are homemade, punched with Spellbinders, a little piece of burnt text paper, gems and cheched ribbon.
The Compasses; image Glitz: vintage love compass, stamped in different Versafine blue and clear embossed,
the center is punched and raised up; gems. White and blue, the colours of Finland!

Very cool!! Love the vintage lady picture! You asked about the settings on my camera. Not really sure how to answer that...sorry. It is a Nikon D40x and I sometimes I shoot in fine mode and other times basic....either way they are the same size. I also make sure when going through blogger I select the largest size. Any thoughts?
