Crafting When We Can Challenges #28 - Sketch by Ang

Thanks to all those that joined us for the last Challenge, your work was wonderful.  

The Challenge this fortnight is a Sketch by Ang.

Our Sponsor is the wonderful 

The image I chose is Little Mushrooms in a Row.  I coloured it with Copics and Promarkers, the papers were from a big 360 page pad from K & Co and I dusted over them with Tea Dye Distressed ink to make them a little more vintage looking and bring the  papers together.  I used a Nellie die to cut the circle out and dusted this too.

To join in this challenge just hop over here and leave your wonderful creations with the little Blue Froggy.  I'm also sure the DT would love it if you left a little love for them too.  Everyone likes a little love.  BIG HUGS :-) xx

Crafting When We Can Challenges 26 - Recipe

The challenge over at Crafting When We Can Challenges is a recipe.  You will need 

1 x large image
2 x sentiments (different or the same)
3 x colours (excluding skin/hair colour)

and the wonderful sponsor is 
and the winner will get these amazing 
Keep  Calm and Carry On ribbons

My card is a landscape DL and the paper, image and sentiments are from the MCS Walking in Winter Wonderland CD.  I have printed each piece out and layered them up again.  I printed Snow on the ribbon along the bottom and wrapped a dotty ribbon around the middle border under the image.  No colouring this time around just plenty of double sided tape and foam pads.  The images were printed onto semi-glossy paper and there are stickles around the borders and on the tree.  They don't show up at all on the scan but believe me they do in real life.  My 3 colours are red, white and blue (with a tiny bit of green because I couldn't get rid of it on her arms).
