Digi Choosday - Week 8

Welcome to week 8 over at DIGI CHOOSDAY, where our new ATG challenge begins and a new discount code is up on the Challenge Blog.

It's been a busy time over at Polka Doodles Towers and with all my time taken, creating for the recent Darling Buds collection, I plumped for a quick and easy card this week.

I have used 3 pre-coloured images from Darling Buds and merged them together.

I have used Dahlia, Hyacinth and Tulip, to create my girly gang of Best Friends.

The paper is from First Edition - Love Letters and a vinyl sentiment from the Silhouette store.

My image has been coloured with a mix of Copics and Spectrum Noir Pencils.

I used a wall embossing folder for the background.

I really wanted her to be looking out of a window, but I didn't have a suitable die, so I designed my own shutter window, using the Silhouette Software.

Finally adding some die cut grass & vines, pearl centred flowers and a cheeky wooden snail.

I look forward to seeing everyones beautiful colouring this week.

Darling Buds - Dahlia

Today I am here to share my forth Polka Doodles Darling Buds, she is another Cracker (aren't they all).

Coloured with Copics, here is DAHLIA.
 I started by doing a colour wash with my Kuretake Gansai Water colour paints, using Red. Orange, Yellow and a touch of Gold.

Once dry I mounted onto a pearlescent copper card base.

I added a row of pearls and some wooden dandelions.

Hopefully this photo shows a hint of the shimmer, that is all over the colour wash.

The Darling buds are available individually or as a fab 10 image package including sentiments..

Get yours HERE.

Digi Choosday Week 7

Hi everyone, Tuesday has rolled around once again, which means it is time for a new ATG challenge at DIGI CHOOSDAY.

Don't forget to grab todays discount code over on the challenge blog.

The challenge for the Design Team this week was anything but a square card.

I chose my image first 'Serenity Stardust' from the Serenity Fairy Wishes Collection and decided as she is sitting on the moon, I would make a star shaped card.

I coloured her up with Copics, using elements from a recent Kit & Clowder class to create a northern lights background for her.  Her wings are very sparkly, but alas cannot be seen in my photos.

I took some black card and sprayed with clear perfect pearls, then searched for ages for the bottom layer.  Finally I came across a sheet of card my 7 year old son had sprayed with various distress inks last summer, which was sitting at the bottom of my papers.  It made the perfect bottom layer.

I look forward to seeing all your lovely projects this week.

Darling Buds - Bluebell

Today I am sharing another new Darling Bud from Polka Doodles.

She reminds me so much of Childhood walks through the woods in springtime, when the ground was covered as far as you could see with BLUEBELLS.

Once again I have kept a fairly CAS layout, as I think these images are beautiful enough.

I have coloured her with Copics add one of the sentiments included in the Bundle.

Just adding a sweet background paper by LOTV and some ferns cut on my Cameo.

I do hope you are enjoying seeing these lovelies as much as I am enjoying bringing them to life.

I will be back on Wednesday with my next Darling Bud, but in the meantime, there is plenty of beautiful inspiration on all of the Polka Doodles pages.
