Challenge 86 - sketch by Ang

This week over at Crafting When We Can Challenges we have a new sponsor it is the wonderful

We were given a choice of images to use and I had Wedding Couple.  As we had a sketch to follow I used my image as the main focus and the sketch as my backgound.  I used Create and Craft glitter card that a friend gave me years ago for the background and Spectrum Noir pens to colour my image.  The yellow paper is nearer to the colour of the veil than it shows in the picture.  I have cut a bow from the paper and used a sentiment from Craftwork Cardz which I coloured the same colour as the dress.

I hope you have got some inspiration from my project.  In the spaces at the side I will put the peoples names.  When I find someone who is getting married.

Hop over to CWWCC and leave us your project based on Ang's fab sketch.

Challenge 85 - Anything but a card

I wish everyone a Happy New Year for 2015 

Over at Crafting When We Can Challenges we have the wonderful 

The winner will receive 3 images of their choice from the store.

We were kindly supplied with an image to use for this challenge and as soon as I saw this beautiful creature I knew just what I wanted to do with her.  I coloured her using Sprectrum noir pens and then scanned her into the computer so I could add her to my scrap page. I have also used my CraftArtist software and the digi kits Fantasy Medieval for the background, Fairy Garden for the ivy, Fantasy Fairies for the frame.

I have had this photograph for about 11 years and I always wanted to do a scrapbook page but could never think of anything to use with it.  This doorway is in the walled garden in Hillsborough Park in Sheffield.  When my children were young we spent a lot of happy hours in this garden along with about 15 other children and their mums.  There is a fountain with lots of snails and other creatures crawling in it.  All the seats were around the fountain and from there we could watch the children playing together like a big family.  There were never any arguments between friends (siblings yes but friends never).  It has such happy memories for me and I still love visiting whenever I can.  Hopefully our children's children can enjoy the same happy days there.  Just in case you wondered the door leads to nowhere because the other side is unsafe it is bricked up and you can't tell from the other side that the door is there.  It was always an enchanted door to another world and that is why it was overgrown to stop us getting through.

 Some of the many original photos of the walled garden.  A paradise for small children to play in.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing my project and it has given you some inspiration.  Hop over to the CWWCC and leave us your anything but a card project.
