Kraft plus

This is the February 19th challenge at Kraft plus.

I had to do this one,being a librarian and avid reader.

I started with a Bella Kraft paper which has words over it. Appropriate I thought.
I misted it with red but it didn't show up very well.

I then layered papers that matched the photo including diamonds and stripes. There are 2 using print,one of which is the BG packet from the Fact or Fiction flowers.
 Speaking of the flowers, I dribbled red mist over them to add colour.and added a hessian flower from D-Lish scraps to match the Kraft.

My journalling explains the book link,which is a strong one.

I added another scrap of Kraft tickets plus a red sequined butterfly.
I had to photograph my layout as it is too thick for the scanner. It is straight and not at an angle.

Speaking of D-lish scraps, they are our sponsor at Archiscraps this month. 

The Male Room

At The Male Room they want no patterned paper on the background.
I splashed around my tattered angels mist (which is now empty) to create this background.

Next I used 2 rows of washi tape to look like water for my ship.
Finally, I added the number.

For the record, I also finished up this washi tape and double sided tape on here ,so it was definitely using leftovers.

Daring Cardmakers and Sweet sketch Wednesday.

Over at Daring Cardmakers this week they have alphabet soup, meaning you need to use letters as your main decoration.
I used some small striped alphas in odd letters that I had left then put my sentiment over the top.
It looked plain so I added a small butterfly sticker.

There is lots of white space but that's ok.
Those marks are on my scanner,so my next job is to clean it.

Next is a card for Sweet sketch Wednesday

I've gone very feminine and girly with this thank you card.

Challenge #2 Feathers.

There are many ways of putting feathers on layouts.

I've opted for an easy choice, I inked a chipboard feather from Scrap FX with a cyan blue.

 I also used this sketch from Let's get sketchy.
My layout is more plain because of the busy background paper.

My background paper is part of the Anthologie range,chosen for the Counterfeit kit.

Freshly made sketches

Here is the sketch at Freshly Made sketches.
We can use any shape so long as the card resembles the original.
I've made an Easter card.

Country view challenges and Cardz4guyz

Country view challenges has a black and white plus one challenge.

I've used orange as my extra colour and kept it subtle.

The photo is from Darkroom Door from a set about New York. The sentiment is from MME.

My next creation is for Cardz4guyz
We were asked to feature wild animals.
I had some animal pictures I cut from an old picture dictionary. I chose 2 walruses.
This card is a get well card for a man and says Sick, tusk, tusk.
I couldn't fit a question mark in the little book plate but think it is implied anyway.

Moving along with the times

Moving along with the times wants shabby chic.
I've used a neutral background featuring black birdcages. I added a strip of bone ribbon plus a scrap of black lace. Two matching enamel dots were added plus my sentiment.
I think it has a shabby chic look.

Time out challenges wants retro.
I've stashed these labels/tags from Graphic 45 for too long. I made a card for a friend who turns 70 in March. This will suit her.
