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.

CD Sunday - Under the Weather

Good morning it's Sunday again and over on CD Sunday we want you do a little something for someone who if feeling a bit under the weather.

I have chosen an image from Cuddly Buddly and put it onto this beautiful layer cut and embossed with the new Marriane die/embossing folder. The backing paper is printed from the Joanna Sheen cd Baby Love, even if you don't do babies there are some fab backing papers on this disc.

I have used a red card to layer to bring out the red in the wellingtons and hat, I put a strip of extra strong tape down the side and pleated some ribbon, did a bow and fastened that to the top. The edges are done with the famous Martha Stewart punch.

Hope you like my offering and can come and join us, we love to see you.
