Digi Choosday Challenge 4 - Cool Blue

I've gone left field again with this weeks project to show the digi's aren't just suitable for cards. Using MaiMeri Gloss Gel, I've pasted small squares of blue paper to the main body of the shoe and stripy paper to the heels. Both are available in download bundles and as part of the Work & Play 8 collection, as is the guitar on the front and the bow at the back. The heels and soles are covered with glitter.

Digi Choosday Challenge 3 - Romance & Love

For this weeks challenge theme of Love & Romance, I've gone slightly off piste! Rather than the cute and sweet aspect, I've used a fantastically tongue in cheek image and sentiment.
For my door hanger I've used Sleepyhead Dollie for my image. It's fantastic value because it comes with that awesome sentiment and the little heart flower too. The backing paper on the hanger is from the lovely Daisy Papers Bundle. To finish it off, I've added a variety of buttons and pearls and some scrap hessian I found.

I've coloured Dollie with Spectrum follows:
Skin - TN1 TN2 FS1 FS7
T-Shirt - IB1 IB2 IB3
Trackies - BGR1 BGR2 BGR3 BGR4 BGR5
Rollers - PL1 PL2 PL3
