Crackers!

Welcome to another Digi Choosday challenge, this week the design team were challenged with making a Chrismas decoration with the classic Red & Green colour Palette. REMEMBER our challenge is now ANYTHING GOES and of course if you pop over to the challenge blog, there will be a lovely Choosday Discount Code.

For a change I have not coloured for my project and opted to use some of the gorgeous pre-colored images from Octavia Frosted Winter.

I decided to make a start on some Crackers ready for our Christmas table.



I used a lovely sage green snowflake paper from the Octavia collection and duplicated it and colorized it to red in Silhouette Studio.  I then printed on light Pearlescent card, so it has a lovely sheen to it and cut with my trusty Cameo.

The rest was fairly simple, just using the pre-made images and holly from the collection to decorate.
I finished with some organza ribbon a little red gem for the holly berries and a tiny tree button.

Snow White

For this weeks Digi Choosday inspiration the DT were given the challenge to use ribbon and/or lace on our projects, but don't forget the challenge for you is ANYTHING GOES.

I have used one of the first Polka Doodles Images that I ever coloured the beautiful Snow White, I think she is also one of my Favorites.
I used Copics for my image, I ended up using well over 50 different colours for this image and completely lost track of my colours (again), but I am over the moon with how she turned out. I even managed to save her after a major a pen leak!!

I hand tied a lime green organza bow and cut some tattered lace corners and finished with some flowers from my stash.

I have used the sweet ''Sea Turtle Kiss' - Available here.

Back to School

Well the Summer Holidays are almost over, so for this weeks Polka Doodles Digi Choosday project I have made a card for my Son who goes into year 2, his final year of infants school - wow where has the time gone?

One of the things he loves do is make Crystals, so I thought the cute Science Geek would be the perfect image to use.  All the classes in his school are named by colour and he will be going into PINK class, hence the pink background.
I created the sentiment and the DNA strand in Silhouette Studio.



I added some Glossy accents to the Bottles and Glasses, not very visible in the photos

Copic colours used:-

Skin - E04  E11  E21 E00  E000
Hair - E18  E15  YR23  Y21
Trousers & Goggles - C7  C5  C3
Lab Coat - C1

Tie - G29  C3
Potions - RV04  R83 & YG23  YG03

Urban

Today I would like to share a card I have made for my Sisters 30th.  She is not a girly girl, so I used a fab image from Make it Crafty  Called Urban Keisha.

I started by merging her with an urban street scene also from MIC, then found a Graffiti font to add the sentiment.

I Coloured with Copics, soooo many that I lost track of what I used!!

 I kept the layout as a single layer with no embellies, as I thought the image was enough.


Thanks for stopping by.

Sparkle Frame

It's time for a new challenge at Digi Choosday and as usual now it is 'Anything Goes', so no excuse not to join in :)

I started by spraying some watercolor card with a mix of purple and blue inks and once dry some perfect pearls.

I had every intention of doing a conventional square card and then found this small frame I brought some time ago in the pound shop.

So I cut the background down and used the Summertime STAMP ME set to create a dragonfly and also stamps some flowers.  I added a few dots of Stickles around the base of the flowers and a little trail behind the dragonfly.






















It looked a little plain, so I edged the frame in flat back diamonds for lots of sparkle.
