Girls. Boys. Squares. Девчонки. Мальчишки. Квадраты.

Dear all,

with no long introduction I'd like to present two cards today. Both were created for Just for Fun Challenge. This week's theme is a Square :) For me, who just hates any type of rules and restrictions, it  is a real challenge to create something that can fit into four straight lines with 90 degrees between them (if I said it right). Therefore it is even more interesting! However, it took a while - to think, rethink, make, remake, throw away and to start all over again :) Here's the result of my brain storming :)

Доброго дня!

Без длинных предисловий хочу показать сегодня две открыточки, которые сделала по заданию от Just for Fun Challenge. Тема- квадрат :) Я вообще плохо дружу со всякими правилами и ограничениями, поэтому мне было непросто придумать что-либо на эту тему. Ну квадрат, ну 4 прямых угла... Думала, красила, терла, переделывала. Вот результат :

Кроме штампиков - все мое. 
Сеточку делала так - гафро-картон, чернила, оттиск.

Everything, except stamped images, are made by me :) 
Background - corrugated cardboard, ink, stamp on prepared surface.

Again, white primer, acrylic paints, watercolour pencils. Cars are glossy - clear embossing powder on the top of black ink.

Почти то же самое - грунтовка, акриловая краска, акварельные карандаши. Машинки - лакированные :) прозрачная пудра для эмбоссинга.

This card I wanted to show to the girls from Theme Thursday Challenge, it is about girls this week.
Thanks for stopping by. Ciao!

А эту открыточку хочу еще показать девочкам с блога Theme Thursday Challenge.
Спасибо, что заглянули. Пока-пока!


  1. Wow, I like these! There's a great rough, textured feeling to both of them which I really like. Fabulous takes on squares without being square! ;D
    Any chance you'd like to give a tutorial on making these types of backgrounds, pretty please? I suck at making backgrounds and using gesso, primers, paints, etc. but I'd like to learn :)

  2. Забавные такие,машинки очень понравились :)

  3. Wow! what a lot of work you have put into these. They are fabulous.
    Regards Florence.
