Digi Choosday - Animals

I love these cute bees and anything with a toadstool for me is a must, so I chose this image from the Sugarplum Daisy CD. THe backing paper is from the same collection. The sentiment I chose fits perfectly and I love the chalkboard effect of it, you can find it s part of the Work & Play 10 - Country Life collection. To accentuate the wings of both the fairy and the bees, I have added sparkly Stickles.

Digi Choosday - All about the Girl

The image I've used this week is one I've anted to use since it released, Gym girl from Work & Play 11. She normally come with a pretty ribbon on the end of her stick, but I snipped the wrong bit so replaced it with real ribbon, whoops! All four papers, the sentiment & flowers are also from the same collection.

Create and Craft Polkadoodles show

Well hopefully you caught the show today. Have to admit I'm not getting to watch until after work tonight.
Here's my contributions to todays two collections.

Polkadoodles - 2 or more patterned papers

You'd expect having to use patterned papers would make your project look quite busy, well I've gone down a different track and done a clean & simple card. All aspects of my card are from the Twiggy & Toots collection. You can also all the papers as a separate bundle here and the butterfly, which is part of the embellies bundle, can be bought here.

Join the fun at Polkadoodles and be in with a chance to win some fabby prizes.

Crafts Galore Encore - Kenny K

For this months sponsor on Crafts Galore Encore, we have Kenny K. When I saw this image was one of the optioned I jumped at the oppertunity. It was obvious to me from the start what I was going to do with it and keep it sympathetic to Wham art. I've used Spectrum Noir Markers to colour the image, I've kept the colouring very flat, the same as can be found in the Wham art movement and just used a single pen for each colour, to avoid unneccersary dimension. The card is actually for my sisters birthday this month, so I created my own sentiments using Craft Artist. To complete the card, I mounted on a bright blue card, found in my age old stash, I felt it better suited the 'Wham' ethos than a white card.
