Kraft Plus March challenge - Houndstooth

Sooo many cool challenges all over scrappy blogland this month, I can hardly contain my excitement. Wish I had more hours in the day!!! I've managed a few so far this month though, and today I have completed the Houndstooth challenge for March over at Kraft Plus. There was also a sketch this month:

Loved this one!!! here is my take:

I have been wanting to scrap this photo of my little sister on her Wedding day for some time. Sadly, her and her Husband are no longer together, so it made it hard for me to do. This challenge was perfect, as it didn't have to be about the day, it was just about her and how absolutely beautiful she looked and how happy she was. I journaled my thoughts and hid them behind the photo!

I just love these watercolour title words by Heidi Swapp! I sprayed so many layers of coloured inks on there to get the right colour, then went over the top with a coat of gesso and voila- the colour I needed appeared!

Other products used were: Patterned paper by Kaszazz & Webster's Pages, (The Houndstooth paper is an oldie from Kaszazz and originally ivory, so I sprayed it with Dylusions!!)
Flowers- Bella, Prima & Scrap Matrix, Brads- Teresa Collins, Wooden leaves- Merci, Script stamp- Kaszazz, Silhouette cut file and Silhouette Cameo machine, Heidi Swapp Colorshine, Tattered Angels Glimmermist, and ribbon! TFL!
