Polkadots at Polkadoodles!

The brief for the DT this fortnight is 'Polkadots' I created this cute little 5x5 inch card using Horace & Boo Big Kahuna Collection. I used papers, one of the design sheets & one of the sentiments. Inking everything up to make it look aged. I shaped the flowers and built them up to give dimension, adding gemstones to the centres.

Festive Hollybobs

Polkadoodles is the sponsor over at Colour Crazy Craft Challenge and I thought as it has been so warm outside recently that we could all do with a bit of a cool down so I opted to work with  the Festive Hollybobs collection. The digi used is available on it's own HERE but I used the paper's from the collection too.

I laid down an initial base colour of Graph'it marker (4125, 8240, 5210, 1210, 9100) then used my Prisma pencils to add the shading (1001, 939, 927, 928, 1018, 988, 911, 910, 923, 924, 1033, 1032, 914, 1022, 1025) I think it makes the image look less 'flat'.


Here is the finished article. I've currently left it without a sentiment as I've not yet decided who will be the recipient. I will personalise it nearer the time.

Using More Than Two Papers

Happy Friday everyone. Today I'm sharing some of the gorgeous content from Horace & Boo with you. The DT at Polkadoodles have been challenged to use 2 or more papers.


I've used three vertical strips of backing paper which I've inked and used as a background, Then within my graphics programme I added one of the sentiments to a topper and resized it to fit. Then added a few of the printed flowers & leaves for decoration.


To decorate the inside of my card I used another of the pretty backing papers and added a pre coloured digi of Horace.

Using a Die Cut

Time for a brand new challenge over at Polkadoodles. You can enter with any project but the DT were challenged to 'Use a Die Cut'. I created a 5x5 easel card from scratch, this week I used Winnie Starfish/Sandcastle Collection & printed complimentary backing papers on both sides of my card stock. I used the Bubbleicious Frame Die to cut out my digi and coloured it in with my Prisma pencils. I adhered it with foam tape & then printed the sentiment and used my inks to colour match. I used a row of shells for my stopper.
Many thanks for stopping by. Please feel free to leave me a comment. I love to read them.

Using A Design Sheet

This week I thought I'd use Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Springtime Design Sheet. I'm amazed at how much Nikky manages to cram onto one of these things. There's also plenty over for future projects. I've left the little banner plain at the moment, that way I can personalise it for my intended recipient when needed. I do hope you pop on over to the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog and join in the fun. It's always 'Anything Goes' & you never know you may just win a prize!
