All Wrapped Up - New Polkadoodles Christmas release

Happy Monday lovely crafty friends from a rather wet and soggy south coast.  So to put us all in a lovely festive mood I am popping in with a little inspiration showcasing the new 'All Wrapped Up' image.

I've gone with a rather clean and simple design for this one so all the focus is on the image and pretty papers.

Medium:  copics
printed on to Ultimate Graphic paper

So let me show you a closer look at the image.  She has been coloured with copics to compliment the papers and I just added a few pearls for interest. 

So that is all from me today folks.  I'm off to make myself a coffee and to catch up on some colouring that I never got around to at the weekend as life got in the way as per usual lol.

Take care and happy crafting.

Happy Friday crafty peeps.  

I have another Polkadoodles new release goodness to share with you today and this little cutie pie is called 'Helping Hands'.  I have coloured her using a mixture of copics and promarkers to compliment the pretty new papers.

Medium:  copics & promarkers

This is my usual close up of the sweet image.  I've added a little Stickles for the snow and dotted around some Liquid Pearls to look like falling snow.

Okay that's all from me today.  I will be popping back tomorrow with another share from the new release.

Take care and happy crafting.

Crafteezee All Dressed Up loveliness

Good morning lovely crafty peeps, a quick pop in from me to share a little Crafteezee All Dressed Up loveliness with you.

I've had a play again with 'What to Wear and teamed her up with some beautiful LemonCraft 'Sense & Sensibility' papers.  I used the sentiment from the set but cut it up so that I could ink the edges and add it to my card at an angle.  

I also got to play with some 'Fantasy' chipboard.  This is the first time I've used this and it's just fab I love it.  All I did was use a little distress ink over it and used it behind the image and I think it just adds that little extra interest and depth to your cards.

I've taken a few piccies to hopefully try and show you lots of the items I've used.  You can see the beautiful lace in the next photo and it really does add a special touch to your card.  You can also see the Lady E Design border die I used to cut my border from kraft card.  I love this die it's going to be so useful in fact I've even kept the negative that was left over as it can be used on another card.  I've popped all of the links to the items I've used at the bottom of my post.

A little close up next of the image.  She's been coloured with copics to compliment the papers and she really was a dream to colour.  

copics used

Skin:  E000, E11, E13
Hair:  E41, E43, E47, E49
Clothes:  R000, R00, R20, R22, R27/E41, E43
Bow/bag:  YG11, G24, G28 

Okay, so that's all from me today folks.  I'm working on something a little autumnal next, so hopefully I'll be able to pop in shortly and show you. 

Take care and happy crafting.

Sharing some Polkadoodles goodness - New Challenge Wk 36

Good morning my lovelies and a big happy Friday to you.  I come to you from a very quiet house this morning.  The kiddies summer break has finally come to an end and some semblance of routine has returned.  Don't get me wrong I love having the kiddiewinkles home (you know I still call them that even though one will be 18 and the other 14 this October lol) but I do find that after the 3 to 4 week mark they've had enough.  I am pleased however that the weather has been fairly kind to us again this summer and they've managed to see friends at the beach and go out a lot rather than being stuck in doors.

Anyway, moving on.  As it's Friday there is a new challenge up over at Polkadoodles.  The theme set for the DT this time was 'thinking of you' using any image, but for all you folks it's as always an 'anything goes' theme and you don't even have to use a Polkadoodles image just enter with any make.  So here's what I went with.

I made a fairly clean and simple card as I really wanted to show off the beautiful image and papers so no fussiness to cover it all up.  I really love colouring in greys I think it is so effective, so this is what I have done with 'Octavia thinking' and literally just added a touch of pink as a highlight.  Items can be found over in the Polkadoodles store and I've popped the links to everything after the first photo.

Medium:  copics
Ribbon and flower from stash

My usual close up of the image.  Isn't she just adorable in her floaty dress?!

Copics used:

Skin:  E000, E11, E13, R20
Clothes:  C1, C3, C5, C7
Hair:  C1, C3, C5, C7, 100
Bow/necklace:  R81, R83, R85/B02, B04

Okay folks that's all from me.  I hope you all enjoy a lovely weekend and get to sneak in a little crafty 'me' time I know I'm going to do my best to lol!!

Take care and happy crafting.
