Racer boy

Vrrrrrroooom! This little guy loves anything with an engine, and quite a few things without one. A paper filled with cars seemed fitting.

I inked the edges green on this multicolored paper, and followed it up with green bubbles/circles and an arrow. The blue is matched up with bubbles and the tags, and so on.... His mother wanted happy colors and not just "standard" boyish theme with blue tones. I really like the outcome.

I had this skyscraper stamp in my drawer that I colored in grey made the blue background look like sky (with flying cars I guess... :)) and added some weight to the base.

The tiny cars are stickers, just the right size for the road. Arent they adorable?

After negotiations, I was allowed from my boys to glue this cutie onto here.

A yellow bike button to match the yellow cab.

Name embossed in green along the side.

Sunshine on a bottle

While waiting for some letters to dry I thought I'd share this little Easter treat with you.
I've been wanting to try the Staz-on ink pad on glass, and when I found these yellow bottles/vases at IKEA (on sale!!), the time was right. For 10 kronor I certainly can afford to fail.
I think it turned out nice though. The letters spruced up the plain vases and made them noticeable.  :) Would have been even better with some traditional swedish Easter twigs in them, as I imagined it. But with all the snow we got today, there's no way I'm gonna find that tonight.
Mr & mrs Goose will cover for the twigs on this photo... 

Now - back to finishing those letters!
