Been playing

I've done a bit of colouring over the weekend as I was cooped up indoors because of the snow!
I've been playing with different colours to create red hair. Here are a couple of the coloured images I have made into cards.
I'm quite happy with how the hair has turned out on these 2 images.
Both images are from Saturated Canary and are coloured with Copics. I'm also trying to use up some of the massive pile of papers I have accumulated over the years, so these are quite old now, but still lovely.

Polka Doodles Week 4 challenge

The challenge over at Polka Doodles this week is Monochrome.  It's not often I do black and white for a monochrome challenge but thought I would this time.
The image and papers are from my fave Polka Doodles CD the Candy Doodles Collectors Edition. I've coloured the image using Copics and ProMarkers. I've made flowers using the Marianne D Creatables LR0162 die, using a circle punch and have also made my own ribbon flowers. I've also used a border punch, a bit of lace and a bow from my stash.

Polka Doodles Week 3 challenge

The challenge over at Polka Doodles this week is Stitching (real or faux)
For this weeks challenge I've used an image, sentiment and papers from the fabulous Candy Doodles Collectors edition CD. I've pierced around the edges with my pokey tool and then drawn on faux stitches. I've coloured the image using ProMarkers and added a few buttons and a ribbon. I've kept this card quite simple as I usually do with male cards.

For this card I have used the fab free image from from Emma Canning, which is coloured woth ProMarkers. The papers are from the new Cherry Blossom Lane CD. I've cut out a few more flowers from the paper and glittered and decoupaged them. I've used a punch on the bottom of the card and also decorated the inside of the card with the same papers. I've finished it off with some faux stitching.

Studio 12 make

I have some excting news to share with you today! As you know I am on the Polka Doodles design team, and I'm loving it! Well, I'll now also be joining in with the Studio 12 side of the Polka Doodles family! I'm so excited, I told you this year was going to be amazing!
This is my first make for them, although I have been using the CD's for a while! I love altering things and getting inky and messy, so it's right up my street.

Every few years I do myself a journal for keeping track of things I'm working on, my fave things and things I need to own! lol And here is the one I've made for this year. All the papers and embellishments are from the Studio 12 Picknix collection Vol 1. I've used some distress ink to age everything, then used a white pen to add faux stitching. Then I've added some odd bits of ribbon to the spine. I always save my ribbon offcuts to use on projects like these.
Don't forget there is still a 15% sale on the Polka Doodles website, so go grab yourself this fabulous CD and anything else you might need.
