Walk the Dino

Polkadoodles Sticks and bones 1

Hey everyone! This week we are doing Love and Romance over on the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog, and I decided loving a pet is still loving, even if that pet is a dinosaur right? I coloured Walk the Dinosaur Girl from the new Sticks & Bones Collection digital and CD form.

Reindeer 1

Hey everyone! I am back with my last Christmas card for this year! The current challenge over on the Polkadoodles challenge blog  is Anything Goes. So for this card I reached for the Work & Play 5 Hollybobs Collection. In this collection you will find some extra digital images aside from the main characters and that is where I found Rudy, this gem of a reindeer! You will also find all of the patterned paper I used on this card in that collection as well! It really is a fantastic holiday collection.

The image was printed out onto kraft coloured cardstock and coloured with my Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils. I didn’t write down the colours I used as this was one of the first images I coloured up with them and I wasn’t entirely sure that it would turn out (that will teach me to always write them down!)

Reindeer 2

I used two of the lovely patterned papers from this collection and layered them on kraft and white cardstock. I had this wood veneer in my stash (probably came from Micheals) and painted it white then cut my image down to fit inside of it. The twine and lace are also from my stash.

Hey everyone! Welcome back to another challenge over at Polkadoodles, the new challenge is white plus one other colour. The other colour I chose to go with was brown.

I printed off Octavia Moonfly Whistful stamp on kraft cardstock and coloured her up with my Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils. I did, however use ever single brown shade pencil in the 120 count set. I then matted her on white card and dark brown card. then I used one piece of patterned paper from the Violin Theme Paper , and then 4 wood dots finish off this card.

Merry Christmas

Octavia Merry Christmas

Hey everyone! Today I have another card for you all using the Octavia Frosted Winter Collection from Polkadoodles. Wouldn’t have guessed it would you have? Nikky puts so much into these collections aside from just the images and sometimes its fun to just play with a large sentiment on a card.

Octavia Merry Christmas 2

I started by printing the image off at 3 1/4″ inches tall then I die cut it out with a stitched boarder. The back pannel has some Peerless Watercolours spread on it so add a bit of colour. I die cut some stitched snowflakes from Lawn Fawn and coloured them with the same colours, some pink burlap from my stash and white sequins finish off the front of the card.
