It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 39 - Use Something New

Hello everybody  
           
Welcome to yet another Tuesday and another Digi Choosday post.  This week’s challenge is ‘Use Something New’.

I’m back into the swing of crafting and creating since my holiday and this week have been playing with the ever so brand new Halloween collections.  Click on the Thumb Linkies below for full details.




I’ve been getting a little bit grungy with this week’s make using distress ink and some crackle paint/glaze (which can’t really be seen on my photos)

All the papers and the sentiment and the potion bottles and the skull bunting are from both the halloween collections.

Here is my make:








These are the ingredients I’ve used:

Card measuring 8x8 inch
Scissors for distressing
Tim Holtz Distress Stain Tea Dye
Scissors to distress the edges of paper
Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint Clear Rock Candy
Dovecraft 3d Pearl Effects in black
Pinflair Glue Gel
Printable acetate for the potion bottles
Seed beads
Ultimate Graphic paper

I can’t wait to see your creations this week.  And remember, it’s not just for cards, you can create ANYTHING you want from home décor to cards, just remember to follow the rules listed in the blog.  And not only can you win a fabulous prize if you are in the top 3/random prize winner but you can also grab your discount code.  How fab is that? 

The discount code only lasts for a short amount of time so you’d better head off over there right now to grab it. 

Why not join in our Facebook groups as well.  Just search for Digi Choosday and Polka Doodles Crafting and ask to join the groups to join in all the fun.  It’s a great community group to join in with and show off your Polka Doodles makes.  There’s always one of the Design Team around to have a natter with and offer guidance and inspiration, so don’t be shy….head on over there right now!!!    
If you would like a Guest Design Team Position with us as well, just have a look at our blog posts and you’ll find the details.  Good luck if you’re entering!!!


Take care

It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 37 - Monochromatic


Hello everybody             

Welcome to yet another Tuesday and another Digi Choosday post and the challenge we have set you all this week is ‘Monochromatic’.

That means having or being of one colour only….  I’ve chosen black and this has given me chance to use my love of Zentangle.  I’ve been wondering for a while whether any of Nikky’s lovely digis would look as good Zentangled as they do coloured in pens and pencils.  Well, what do you think?

As like last week I’ve used one of the digis from the Serenity collection called Serenity Princess and a sentiment from the collection too.  The paper is from the Dolly Goes East collection.  Click on the Thumb Linky below for full details from the Polkadoodles webby.

I’ve printed her out onto Ultimate Graphic paper and used my Staedtler Pigment Liner pens.  Full details of what else I’ve used can be found below.


Here is my crafty make this week:










These are the ingredients I’ve used:

Graph It Pens – 9500, 9501, 9503, 9506
Scissors for distressing
Pan Pastel Ultra Soft Coarse Pearl Medium 014
8x8 card
Dovecraft 3D Pearl Effects in Black
3 white paper roses
Diamante heart
‘Love’ silver heart
Black and White striped ribbon
Lace
Pearl string
Glossy Accents
Glamour Dust

I can’t wait to see your creations this week.  And remember, it’s not just for cards, you can create ANYTHING you want from home décor to cards, just remember to follow the rules listed in the blog.  And not only can you win a fabulous prize if you are in the top 3/random prize winner but you can also grab your discount code.  How fab is that?  The discount code only lasts for a short amount of time so you’d better head off over there right now to grab it.

Hello everybody             

Welcome to yet another Tuesday (don’t they come round quickly???) and another Digi Choosday post and the challenge we have set you all this week is ‘Shaped Cards’.

My inspiration for this week’s challenge comes from the actual shape of the digi itself.  She is called Serenity Resting and is available on the Serenity collection and separately as a black and white digi on her own.  For full details click the Thumb Linky below.

I’ve printed her out onto Ultimate Graphic paper which is the best best best for colouring with Graph It markers which I’ve used this week.  I then cut her out and made a card shape the same shape as her and then the sentiment is from the full collection too which I’ve chopped up and tattered the edges with my scissors and touches of ink here and there and flitterings of Glamour Dust encapsulated within Glossy Accents.  Full details of the Graph It pens I’ve used can be found below.

Here is my crafty make this week:









These are the Graph It pens I’ve used:

Skin – 4115, 4145, 4155, 4170, 6150
Lips – 5240
Hair – 4115, 4155, 3170, 3180, 3190, 3130, 4180

Hello everybody

Now I won’t deny the fact that PINK PINK PINK is one of my favourite colours.  That and GREEN.  So this week’s challenge is a dream for me.  You see, I have a fabulous pink and craft room where I shut myself away for a few hours every day.  

I’ve been colouring yet again and just adore the pink range of Graph It pens and so using the Drummer Girl from Work & Play Feel The Music collection I’ve coloured her up and using three of the papers from the collection and the music clef and the word ‘MUSIC’ I’ve made this week’s card.  Click on the Thumb Linky below for full details of the collection which can be bought as a CD and a download and the drummer girl can be bought as a single black and white digi too.  Check out the jute bow I’ve put in her hair, just like the Oddella Twig digi I coloured a few weeks ago.

Here is my crafty make this week:






These are the Graph It pens I’ve used:

Skin – 4115, 4145, 4155, 4170, 6150
Hair – 5210, 5230, 5160, 4250
Clothing – 4135, 5160, 5170
Drum kit and bows in hair coloured with Wink of Stella pen

These are the other ingredients I have used:

Ultimate Graphic paper
Drummer girl digi from the Work & Play Feel The Music collection
Papers from the Work & Play Feel The Music collection
Musical clef and lettering from the Work & Play Feel The Music collection
Pink card for matting and layering
Pink ribbon lace.
Jute bow
Distress Ink Tattered Rose
Liquid Pearls – Magenta
8 x 8 card

I can’t wait to see your pink pink pink creations this week.  And remember, it’s not just for cards, you can create ANYTHING you want from home décor to cards, just remember to follow the rules listed in the blog.  And not only can you win a fabulous prize if you are in the top 3/random prize winner but you can also grab your discount code.  How fab is that?  The discount code only lasts for a short amount of time so you’d better head off over there right now to grab it.
