Wanted to get in quick with this week's MAMMA Challenge - as I usually work Thursday and Friday I find it very hard to join in if I don't do it in the early part of the week. In fact my main crafting days are probably Sunday and Monday so not getting the challenge till Monday is very frustrating!!
My entry for this week's theme 'Matrimony' started off as a simple churchy arch idea, but when thinking about what words I could add to make it a little amusing it seemed to grow a bit..... once again the end result is also pushing the boundaries of what might be considered the right size for an ATC but I do love dimensional stuff.
Basically we start off with the outside of the ATC. I have used some metal that I put through my cuttlebug having bought a new embossing folder (Divine swirl) at Ally Pally on Saturday (err, thanks for asking, no that was NOT the only thing I bought lololol though hubby and bank manager probably wish it was). I saw a brilliant gothic arch project on the LB Crafts stall (realised afterwards that I had been talking to Ms PA herself, doh) and I bought the blank to have a go 'cos not sure I can make the actual workshop and I WANT ONE. It has all sorts of yummy metal stuff on it so this is me practising again. Still I digress. Back to the ATC - Before we open the doors to the 'church' we pull out a 'slider' to reveal a question. "which 2 words make the longest sentence in the English language?"
Yes, you guessed, it is going to be a rude comment on matrimony. Opening the doors reveals the answer and we can see our bride and groom behind bars for the rest of their natural.
But because I am basically a big old romantic at heart and have been with my OH since I was 19 and married for 18 years, the 'prison' lifts up to reveal the happy couple, all smiles and loved up.
I really am a fan of Matrimony, lolololololol.
But, as they say, you get less for murder. (I'm JOKING!!!!!!!)
