Sentimental

I found this weeks DIGI CHOOSDAY Design Team brief, a little tricky as I am primarily a colourist and don't often use a sentiments on my cards, so it was hard for me make the sentiment the focus.

But of course, there are so many beautiful sentiments in the Polkadoodles collections, that it didn't take me long to find a beautiful one to use.  This one is from Winnie Sugar Sprinkles.

I had an abundance of beautiful papers to choose from as well and finally settled on papers from Lil Miss Sugar Pops 1, which I used for the background and the Butterfly.





I cut a couple of the cute unicorns which are also fromLil Miss Sugar Pops 1, coloured them with Copics and SN Sparkle pens and layered them.

We would love to see you enter our challenge which is ANYTHING THING GOES and as usual on a Tuesday, there is a lovely discount for you to use.

Outdoor Fun

The summer is nearly here and the weather has been lovely in the UK for the last couple of weeks, so at DIGI CHOOSDAY this week our DT inspiration is all about outdoor fun.

One of my favourite things when I was younger was to look in the rock pools at the beach and when I visited Hawaii for my Honeymoon, we snorkelled in the sea with wild turtles, so the image I chose to use this week is from Winnie Starfish & Sandcastles.


The papers and sentiment are all from the same collection and I used a polka doodles Cloud die along with a couple of others from my craft stash.

The image is coloured with Copics and I used a little fluffy puffy stuff on the wave breaks.

You can enter our challenge with any project and the theme is always ANYTHING GOES.

We also have a weekly discount code, which you will find on the Challenge Blog.

Vintage

It's time for a new challenge at DIGI CHOOSDAY and this week the Design Team were challenged to make a vintage style card, but as always the theme to enter is ANYTHING GOES.

Well this is sooo not my style, but having watched Nikky Hall on Hochanda recently, I took some inspiration from her use of papers and stamps.

So, here is my "vintage card"



The papers are from Winnie in Wonderland, I cut 2.5 inch squares and then edged them with distress ink and layered them onto Kraft and coral card.

I found the sentiment in the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles collection and added to a oval die in the silhouette studio, this was also edged with distress ink.

Next I stamped 2 butterflies from Daisy Days STAMP ME onto the Winnie wonderland paper and fussy cut them.

I then stamped them onto the oval and glued the fussy cut butterflies on top.

Finally I used a bubble stamp from the same collection and also some liquid pearls, round the edge of the oval.


Thanks for looking and I do hope to see your entries in the challenge this week.

Bubble Fairies

Today I had a go at making bubbles, with  home made stencil and my ink pads.

I used white, Pink and Blue inks on a black background.  I also used a white pencil around the edges and to create a shine effect.

All the stamps are by Lavinia Stamps.


I used  light blue embossing powder on the sentiment and added some glitter dots and stripes.

Sparkle and Shine


I hope you all enjoyed the gorgeous bank holiday weather here in the UK, wasn't it lovely for a change!!

At DIGI CHOOSDAY this week, we are all about sparkle and shine, so I have added both to my project.

The image I have chosen is Ruby Celebrations and she is coloured with copics.



To add my sparkle I used some silver washi tape on the pearl grey background, matted and layered my image and added a couple of glitter stars.

For shine, I added glossy accents to the balloon.

Our challenge as always is ANYTHING GOES, or you can join the design team and add some sparkle or shine.

Together

I haven't played with my Lavinia stamps in a while, but at Ally Pally a couple of weeks ago, I found the perfect stamp to create a beautiful background for them by Inkylicious.

I used Distress Oxides on the stamp, spritzed with a little water, then added some stars with a white gel pen.

Apart from the background, all other stamps are by Lavinia Stamps
