Some inspirations from Mo!

At The East Wind, we have 2 challenges/contests running most of the time, this means two chances to win fabulous images from Unky!

You are here on our Blog so you will hopefully be aware that we have a Challenge starting on the 1st and 15th of every month here on the blog. The current challenge is #7 Bride of May and we want to see your Wedding themed projects!

For this I have used an alternative bride! Cos us alternative chicks want to look pretty on our wedding day too! hahaha Lucy Loo 'Blow the Skull Kiss' is the image I've used, colouring her up in Ivory and pale skin tones.
The papers I have used are from British company, Craftwork Cards and are from their 'Tea Dance' collection with soft creams and pinks to compliment the Ivory dress. I've made a bow with the same papers and the sentiment is also from Craftwork Cards. The layers are built up with some white pearlescent paper too and an X-Cut border punch creates a lace effect on one of the mats.

Now, the Challenge Blog will likely be all frilly and pretty and girly and we love that! But, I'm also a fan of the darker side of crafting and love a bit of Halloween! So, for those of you who like that too - we have a fabulous Facebook Contest going till the 17th of June with the theme 'Something Out of the Norm'!
I have used a Witchy image and coloured it with pencils, rather than my 'normal' Promarkers! I've layered her up with papers from Echo Park's Apothecary Emporium pad and lots of black pearlescent papers. I've finished it off with a Tim Holtz 'Scaredy Cat' die cut and Cheery Lynn spiderweb corner die.
As you can see, a very different card to what you would 'normally' see over at The East Wind. Now, you dont have to make a card, our other DT members have created tags and altered notebooks, you can go dark and creepy or just make something out of your own 'norm', out of your comfort zone - if it's not clear, let us know what makes it out of the norm for you!

Why not join our Facebook Group for more inspiration!

I hope you will join our two challenges and best of luck!

  1. Just adore that wedding card, Mo and of course you knew I'd love your "darker" card as well. Fab job on both of them! xxD
