Crafting When We Can Challenges 58 - Winter

The Challenge this fortnight is sponsored by 

The theme is 

I don't want to be reminded it nearly Christmas so my project for Winter is a wedding theme.  I have made a bottle hanger?  I used the template from CraftArtist and a background from MSC Winter Wonderland as a base for my image Fae 20.  I printed out my image at A4 coloured it in using my Spectrum Noir pens.  I am trying to improve my colouring but am still working out blends of colours I like.  I went for blue to keep with the Winter theme.  I wrote "Happy Winter Wedding to the Wonderful Couple".  You can't see from the photo but I have used a sparkly gelly roll pen to highlight the clothes and twiddly bits on the wreath.

Challenge 57 - Neopolitan - red, white, brown

First I have printer problems and now blogger seems to be playing up, but I'll try and make this a quick post.

Our theme over at Crafting When We Can Challenges  is
Neopolitan - red, white, brown

Our Sponsor is

Tamara kindly gave us images to use and I chose Sirena.  I wanted to do this as a proper paper scrapbook but I was having problems with my printer and it took nearly 40 mins to just print out the line image so I decided to go digital.  I coloured my image with spectum noir pens, used Craft Artist II to make my page.  Digikits used - Season of Giving, Classic.  The white mats are made from coloured shapes punched out.

Crafting When We Can Challenges #56 - Make your own flower/s

The challenge over at Crafting When We Can Challenges is make your own flower/flowers and our wonderful sponsor is 
Lacy Sunshine

I used card and paper from my stash with a scrabby edge made with my scissors and matted onto gold card with a Craftworks sentiment.  The image was coloured with flexmarkers and the flower mat was cut with a Spellbinder die and embossed with a Tim Holtz wood embossing folder.  The flower was also made using the same die.  I coloured the flower paper with DI to give it a bit of depth.  

My image is Mitzi Gnome digi set.  

Hop over to the Challenge blog and show us your handmade flowers.
