Not a card for Mum.

Good morning and happy
Today over at the Digi Choosday blog the team were challenged to make something for Mothers day that wasn't a card, and here is what I made.

It does look like a card from the front but it isn't it is a wooden standing plaque. I got this in the sale somewhere for 50p and kept it for altering and upcycling into something better. Firstly I painted it with white gesso to give it a base and to cover the wording that was on it. Then I used the script stamp for the Belle Papillon stamp set and stamped all around the edges. Then I used 2 papers from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles collection, inked around the edges and glued in place. I stamped out some foliage and the bird and butterflies from the Belle Papillon stamp set, and then die cut them with their coordinating dies. I then used the fence from the Winnie collection and watercoloured it with Kuretake Gansai Tambi pains and mounted on 3D foam. I glued the rest of the embellies in place. Then I coloured up the new Primrose digi stamp and mounted her onto 3D foam and place her on the plaque. Finally I used the sentiment from the stamp set and stamped direct on to the paper.

This shows how all of Polkadoodles collections can be used together, whether they be stamps, dies or digital download images and collections.
