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

Lady Rose

You are in for a treat today with some gorgeous new images from Aurora Wings, the two that I am showcasing today are just the type of images I love to colour, first up is 'Lady Rose'



Turquoise is my goto colour for a lot of projects and thought it teamed beautifully with the Red rose.

I like to keep a simple card layout when the images are so intricate, so just layered up some matching card, with some hearts embossed on the Turquoise.

There is loads of sparkle in real life on her wings and also the ribbons.


You can find Lady Rose 2 Here

To celebrate we have two special offers for the weekend.

The Golden Compass



It's time for some more DIGI CHOOSDAY Inspiration and this week the design team were asked to take inspiration from a movie and I chose THE GOLDEN COMPASS', such a magical movie about a young girl called Lyra who lives in an alternate universe and ends up befriending a Polar Bear called Lorek.


So the image I have used this week is from Octavia Frosted Winter and is called 'Polar Family'.


The image is coloured with Copics and I followed a past Kit & Clowder class to create the Northern lights background.

I also used a lot of clear Spectrum Noir sparkle pen on both the snow and the moon.

I mounted onto some lovely blue sparkle paper and finished with a couple of die cut Christmas Trees.

If you pop to the challenge blog today you can grab the DIGI CHOOSDAY discount code.

We love seeing your makes both in the challenge and over on Facebook and Instagram, so don't be shy, show us your fabulous makes.

Thank You

This week at DIGI CHOOSDAY we are showcasing thank you cards and who doesn't love to receive one of those?

I have chosen the beautiful Ruby Frou Frou, I really love this image, I think she is so elegant and a dream to colour.






I coloured with Copics in RV and BG and matched my ribbon, sentiment and flowers to add some pops of colour to the silver grey and white background.

Chrysanthemum Sprite

This is the second new sprite we are showcasing today at the Aurora Wings Showcase Blog.

I wanted to use an emerald Green colour and thought the purple was a lovely companion to that, then I found this lovely paper in my stash which had just the right shades to match.




I coloured my image with Copics and used a tattered lace ivy die and some pretty sue wilson flower dies.  Finally I finished each of the flowers with an irridescent gem.

Maple Sprite


We have some lovely Autumnal sprites for you today over on the Aurora Wings Showcase Blog.

First up is MAPLE SPRITE, I wanted to mix rich oranges and reds together for this one, so I created a background with ink spays and stamped some red and copper branches.

Once this was all dry, I cut a maple leaf aperture and glued over the top, placing the lovely sprite in the centre.



My sprite is coloured with Copics in bright reds and oranges and little green for contrast.



You can find another new sprite HERE.

Witch way to the Candy?

Well Halloween is on it's way, so I thought for this weeks DIGI CHOOSDAY inspiration I would make card for my son, using an image from the lovely Winnie Wednesday collection.

I have used papers and a sentiment from this collection too.




The image is coloured with Copics and I added a cheeky skull cut on my cameo to finish it off.

You can find all the papers, images and sentiments over in the Polkadoodles Store, along with the fab new Halloween stamps that have recently been released.

Necromantica

The second image I am showcasing today is 'Necromantica'.

After I coloured my image with Copics I was again undecided on what to do, after a lot of pondering I opted to fussy cut the image and also cover the wings with Clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen.

I found a layered heart in the Silhouette store and thought it would make a good backdrop for the image so cut it in shades of blue to match the roses in the image.



Finally I layered this onto some designer paper which co-ordinated with the blue and also introduced some purple to the scheme.


You can find my Skull and Roses showcase HERE.

There is also a lovely Freebie with purchases.

Skull and Roses

It's showcase time over at Aurora Wings and first up is a departure for me, but a beautiful image.

I have coloured 'Skull & Roses', with Copics.

I really want't sure how best to display this image, so I went for a paint drip background and simple frame.

Decorations Up

This one is 'Winnie Angel Decorations Up'  She has been coloured with Copics and taking inspiration from one of the Monthly Kit & Clowder markers classes, I have drawn a background in around her to create a magical evening scene.


The sentiment is from Most Wonderful Joy Polkadoodles stamps and the paper is fromWinnie Winterland.

I have added little gems to the tree for Baubles and lot of sparkle to the star and her little wings.

Shine Bright


This week we are all about Fancy Folds at DIGI CHOOSDAY, after a little search around the internet, I decided to make a Trip-Fold shutter card so I could incorporate some lovely Polkadoodles papers.

I chose a lovely turquoise patterned paper from the Helga Hippo Big Kahuna collection.  I matched this with an image from Lil Miss Sugarpops 1.



My Lil Miss Sugarpops is coloured with Copics.

I also decided it needed a little extra so I used the Polkadoodles Cherry Blosssom die for the branch, flowers and leaves.
