Challenge 3- Going For A Song - Mid Way Reminder

We are half way through May already!
Here is your reminder to post your creations for our current challenge of Going For A Song.
Just to remind you the challenge is to create something, anything, inspired by a song you love. We have sponsors, which means prizes are up for grabs. For full details of the challenge or to enter the challenge link your project to the challenge post before this one click HERE or scroll down.

Here are some more Design Team creations to give you inspiration:-


I have used the same Ike's Art image, Windmill, as I did in the original challenge post, but this  time the tune that inspired me is "Tulips from Amsterdam". I blew the image  right up before printing and then fussy cut to leave just the tulips, which I then coloured with Promarkers to match some of the beautiful tulips we had in the garden this year.


I have used Skully Poe from Delicious Doodles to create my reminder card.
I coloured the image with Promarkers and layered on card matching the books the head is sitting on. I layered onto a Papermania geometric base card and then added a contrsting sentiment sticker and some red diamantes. My inspiration for this card was 'Witch Doctor' by The Cartoons.

My song for this one is "I promised you a Rose Garden". I used Ike's Art Rose corner, coloured with Spectrun Noir pencils. The background and sentiment were created digitally.

Using a digi chosen from our second sponsor Delicious Doodles I have made a twist and pop card. I love doing this shape card. As soon as I saw the lovely Iris image on the Delicious Doodles site I was immediately reminded of many a day playing in my Auntie's garden when I was small. Only a small garden, but she always had lots of Iris plants underneath her lounge window. I loved them and have Iris in my garden now because of that memory. Hope you like the card.

Have Fun - The Quirky Crafts Challenge Design Team.
