'Miss Charlotte' - New Polkadoodles Crafting challenge

Happy Friday folks and what a ploppy day it is here weather wise, windy, wet and soggy, yuk!!

But, hey, what better way to brighten up your day than to partake in a little craftiness and play along with the new challenge that is live today over on the Polkadoodles Crafting challenge blog.

So, let me show you my dt make for this week's challenge.  The team are all working to the theme 'add a heart' but as always it's an 'anything goes' theme to enter the challenge for all you lovely peeps and we'd love to have you join us so we can all come see your beautiful makes.

I've used a beautiful image 'Miss Charlotte' from the Rose Budd Collection and made an easel card.  You can get her from the Polkadoodles store as both a clear stamp or in the download collection (all the links to everything I've used are under the first piccie).  The fabby papers are also from the same collection and are so so pretty.  I've printed them on to Ultimate Graphic paper and they print out beautifully and look amazing.  I actually won't print onto anything else now that I've found this.

Image:  Polkadoodles 'Miss Charlotte' clear stamp or the whole Rose Budd download collection
Medium:  copics/promarkers
Papers:  printed from Polkadoodles Rose Budd Collection onto Ultimate Graphic paper
ribbon, flowers and pearls from stash

Everything has been edged with Tim Holtz walnut stain and the little topiary trees are in the download collection I just sized them as I wanted, printed them off and cut them out.

A close up of Miss Charlotte.  She's been coloured up with a mix of copics and promarkers and I did the dotty background effect with my pens too just to soften the look a little.

copics/promarkers used

Face/Body:  E000, E13, E11
Dress:  PMs Tea Green, Grey Green + BG75 copic/RV23, RV25, RV29
Hair:  E43, E44, E47, E49
Background:  W00, W1, W3, W5

Okay, that's me done for today folks.  I have a busy couple of days coming up I have work tomorrow and then my sister's 30th birthday get together.  I'm so looking forward to it, although we don't mention the '30th' bit she's a little sensitive about that part heavens knows why considering I have 15 years on her and I can still drink and dance her under the table he he!!

Anyway, take care and have a great weekend.
