Digi Choosday Week 32

This week at DIGI CHOOSDAY the design team have been playing with the design sheets that come with many of the Polkadoodles collections.

I have used a design sheet from Works and Play 9 - Love & Kisses to create an engagement card.

I matted onto a co-ordinating heart embossed background, then edged with Gold card, to match the colour scheme of the design sheet.

Aurora Wings Elements

We have a new challenge for you today over at Aurora Wings and our theme is........


I was convinced I wanted to do Fire as my theme, but as you can see from the image below, I had a major change and went with Water - I so love colouring Mitzi's Mermaids.

Normally I go for Teal or Orange, but this time I went for a rainbow look inspired by a recent


I started by painting a watercolour background and was going to colour with Copics, until I realised they do not blend on watercolour paper, so instead I grabbed my Prisma Pencils and used a combination of purple, pink and orange to colour her beautiful tale.


Then I went a bit mad with Gold paint splatter and novo drops, but it looks really magical in real life, not sure I have truly captured it in the photos. 

 I added some coral using stamps from Inkylicious and Lavinia Stamps using adirondack inks.

Finally I mounted onto black card and added a memory box die cut.

We would love to see your element projects.

The Dancing Princess

Today I am sharing a card I have made using the image I coloured with the latest Kit & Clowder class.

The beautiful image is by Moonflower called Lilly The Dancing Princess.

I have coloured with Copics and made into a card for my niece's 18th Birthday this week.


I wanted to keep my original colouring, so I scanned it and made the card with copy.  The colour is a little duller in the scanned image, but still looks good.  

I decorated with a mix of resin and paper flowers.

This is my original coloured image.

Digi Choosday Week 31

We are still full of Christmas spirit over at DIGI CHOOSDAY.  

Unfortunately work commitments have meant I am a little behind with my DT work (oops), but wait all is not lost, with all the pre-coloured images available to me, I was able to make a really quick hanging decoration.

I took an image from Festive Hollybobs and cut around it on my Cameo.  I found a Poinsettia file I have (Sandras Scrapshop) and cut out several layers in red card stock.

I edged each petal with my clear Spectrum Noir sparkle pen and 20 minutes later a beautiful decoration for my tree.


We would love to see you enter our ANYTHING GOES challenge and of course there is a prize on offer.

To help there is also a discount code every Choosday.

Digi Choosday Week 30

It's DIGI CHOOSDAY and time for a new inspiration post, these last few weeks we have been getting a start of Christmas.

I have made a Christmas countdown Calendar using a cutting file by Samantha Walker.

I have used papers and an image from my favourite Christmas collection -  Octavia Frosted Winter.  I just love the colours and magic of this collection.

The main part and the two blocks are cut in heavy white card stock.  I printed one of the landscapes from the collection to decorate the stand and added some blue sparkle washi tape to the bottom edge.

The blocks are also covered in different papers from the collection.

I cut the main image out on my cameo and added lots of sparkle with a SN pen.  Finally adding a couple of wooden snowflakes.

Remember to go grab todays discount code HERE.

Have a great week.
