Love Bug

With Valentines day fast approaching, this week at Polkadoodles DIGI CHOOSDAY we are all about love and Romance.
So I have created a Valentines card for my Hubby using the sweet Lily Bug Love Heart Balloon.




i have used one of my favourite colour combos Red and Turquoise and coloured Lily Bug with my Copics.

I used Polkadoodles stitched circles die to cut a circle from the patterned paper which is from Winnie Starfish & Sandcastles.

I added a Silhouette sentiment around the edge and some die cut hearts.

I look forward to seeing everyones projects this week on the challenge blog - where the theme is always ANYTHING GOES, so excuse not to enter and grab a chance to win a Polkadoodles prize.

Recycle


For this weeks DT inspiration at DIGI CHOOSDAY, we were asked to recycle something.

So I grabbed an empty Twiglets canister from the recycling bin and transformed it into a handy holder for my scissors, paint brushes and rulers.








I started by covering the tub in tissues paper and a couple of layers of Gesso and white paint.

Once it was all dry, I used my distress oxides in blue, pink and purple and dabbed all over until I had a good coverage, then also added a little gold gilding wax over the creases the tissue paper had made.









I coloured up the beautiful Darling Buds Bluebell with my Copics and then glued to the tub, with some little flowers from my stash and some pearl edging around the top.

Finally I tried a bit of hot foiling using my laminator to add my name to the side.

Teenager


Happy new year everyone, hope you had a great time over the festive season.

I am beginning the year with a card for my nephew and my latest DT inspiration for DIGI CHOOSDAY.

I have used papers and the 'basketball' digi image from the Little Dudes Collection




I have coloured my image with Copics, I was trying to go for a darker skin tone, but it looks a bit orangey, think I need to find a different combo for that!

I created the wording using a new crafty gadget I got for Christmas - we r memory keepers letter punch board.

I do hope you join us over at the Challenge Blog and look forward to seeing all your lovely creations.

Party Time


For this weeks DIGI CHOOSDAY inspiration I have taken a break from Christmas to create a cute Birthday card, perfect for the princess in your life.

I have used a digital image and digital papers from Winnie Celebrations 1.



I coloured my image with Copics and a little white pencil on the balloons.

The balloon strings were created using a polkadoodles  border stamp, that I bent so it wasn't straight up and down.

Don't forget all our challenges are ANYTHING GOES, with a chance to win some Polkadoodles goodies.

I look forward to seeing all your wonderful projects.

Over the Rooftops

We are getting so close to Christmas and Polkadoodles have the most fabulous digi images and clear stamps for your Christmas projects.

For this weeks  DIGI CHOOSDAY inspiration I have used paper and a digi Reindeer from Festive Christmas Soup and also part of one of the toadstool house stamps, I purchased on the Hochanda one day special and created a little over the rooftops scene.




I part stamped the toadstool house and masked off before I used inks to create the moon and sky.

I coloured the house and Reindeer with Copics and cut it out using a Polkadoodles stitched circles die.

finally adding some die cut snowflakes and a little glitter to the snow.

Arctic Snow


For this weeks DIGI CHOOSDAY inspiration I have created a little arctic scene, using my inks.

I added to this some of the sweet tree/mushroom stamps from the Showtime Magic Set.

I splattered the background with some White metallic water colour paint to create the snow and finally added my Penguin family from Winnie Winterland, which have been coloured with Copics.

Lady Rose 2

Back again with my second Aurora Wings Showcase, another stunning image from Mitzi and I really love how the colours turned out on this image.



I used a combo of BV Copics with some green and pink in 00 & 000 for the background clouds.

I got completely carried away with the liquid pearls on this image, but I think it adds to the fantasy of this image.

I finished the card off with a gem strip and a lovely silver grey bow
