Challenge #313 - Music and Dance - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, I do hope you enjoyed the Autumn/Fall colours challenge a couple of weeks ago this time its all about

Music and Dance

and I know that if you are anything like me you have loads of images, papers and designs that will cover this theme and we all look forward to seeing your projects.
But firstly you will want to know who our Sponsors are and as always our sponsers are The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website

But as always it comes with the rule that you must have used one of their products on your card or project, this could be a Image, Paper or Printable and even if you dont, they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice, so it really is a win win situation dont you think.
And for my own card this is the result, hope you like it


 and this young man is "The Saxophonist" and you will find him here, I printed him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him, afterwards I used a oval die to cut him out and then cut a larger one out of brown card for the mount. The sentiment is one I found on the internet and printed it and mounted this also onto a piece of the same brown card as the image.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of brown card, the backing paper I also used from "The Saxophonist" and you will find it here. I then placed some sheets of actual music score on top of this first mount and used some brown ink to tone it down and age it, I also used the same brown ink of the image and sentiment.
To finish of I have used several music embellishments and placed them all around my mounted image.
I hope that now youve seen my card you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented design team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "Music and Dance" themed Challenge.

Challenge #202 - Use Kraft Paper - Pink Gem Designs

Good Morning Crafters, over on the Pink Gem Challenge Blogspot its the turn of the Pinks Team to create a card and our host this time is Lisa and she has chosen for us to

Use Kraft Paper

and Ive got to be honest I find that its quite difficult to colour on it so I chose to use Kraft paper as a backing paper and I hope that it does'nt upset the balance of my card.
But before I show you what I have been up to, but firstly I must let you know who is sponsoring us and that is Janet Roberts of Pink Gem Designs go and visit the Pink Gem Designs website and see for yourself

 
what beautiful and stunning images and papers that she creates for you to play with and create cards with.
And here is the Card I created for this theme


This gorgeous image is titled "The Ark" and I printed a coloured image then cut it out completely ready to place it on my background you will find it here. 
The base card is again a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of blue card, the backing papers are from my stash I believe they are from Sweetshoppe Designs, and because of the water theme I have used three of them, the first a bubble one which I placed on top of my first mount, then I cut a smaller mount out of blue card and then layered up firstly the kraft paper which stood for my sky, then used a scalloped edge cutter and made two wave layers and tucked the cut out image behind the last one to make it look as if its sailing along in the water. To finish of I used some glaze over the portholes. The sentiment is one from my stash and was mounted up and placed in the top right hand corner and to finish of I have used several fish related embellishments and placed them down the left hand side.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Pink Gem Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "Use Kraft" Challenge.
