Rainbow Lady's challenge #154 - Some Enchanted Evening

This week over on Rainbow Lady's challenge we would like you to share an Enchanted Evening, we as a design team were very lucky to be given some of Crafty Ann's artwork to  play with and this is what I've come up with.

I used Craft Artist Platinum to join two of the scenes together so I had a couple of trees behind the couple, I found the image of the couple in Joanna Sheens Dancing With Shadows cd, I took the image into CA and removed the background so I just had the image, I placed that in front of the scene which is coloured with chalks and Promorkers with a touch of glitter to highlight the water.  Once the whole thing was how I wanted it I printed it out only to find that the couple image wasn't sharp, I didn't want to waste my efforts and start again so went around the image with a fine black pen which helped to remove the fuzzy look but as the pen was darker than the print it stood out, once again Promarkers to the rescue, I went over the whole image with the black promarker and it now looks fine.

Crafty Ann's is sponsoring this challenge and is giving away more than one prize so pop over  to Rainbow Lady's and have a look and hopefully join in, we'd love to see you.

  2. This is just fabulous Jenny - I love how you've extended the original scene. Clever old you :o)It's all so beautifully coloured too. Promarkers have got me out of trouble a couple of times recently too and this looks perfect. I thought I recognised the silhouette couple....you've got my brain ticking over now, thank you for the inspiration!

  3. Gorgeous card Jenny, makes me think of 1950's Romantic films. Love Elizabeth xxx

  4. I love the silhouette images, Jenny. Your finished card is gorgeous, even if getting to that point was a bit difficult.

  5. Great card Jenny! Its got a very 'suumer romance' feel to it hasn't it! :o)
