It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 47 - Winter Birthday


Hello everybody            
 
Welcome to yet another Tuesday and another Digi Choosday post. 
This week’s challenge is ‘WINTER BIRTHDAY’.

Since Nikky launched the Colour Therapy collections a few weeks ago I’ve been addicted to colouring them and have a few unfinished projects and lots of ideas in the pipeline but I’ve decided to use one of the sheets from the Florabunda Collection 1 this week for my Winter Birthday card.  When it comes to winter colours I always think of blues and purples so with this in mind have coloured one of the sheets up in shades of blues and purples and a hint of glitter.  See below for the ingredients I have used.  And click on the Thumb Linkies for the details of the collections.

Here is my make:    







These are the ingredients I have used:

Ultimate Graphic paper
Graph It pens  - 6130, 6140, 6170, 7130, 7140, 7150
Wink of Stella Clear Glitter
Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Drawing Ink – Lilac Blue, Blue Blush
8x8 white card
Blue card for matting and layering
3 faux pearl hearts coloured with Graph It Pens


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 24 hours 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 Polkadoodles Crafting and The Pencil Case and the Inky Pinkies 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 Polkadoodles 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!!!

So a few weeks ago Nikky launched the Colour Therapy collections and this week I’ve used the alphabets to make a thank you card which I’ve coloured using Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Drawing Ink (full shade details tomorrow).  I’ve made a slimline card and kept it really simple by enlarging some of the butterflies from the alphabet and printed onto acetate and glittered the backs of them.  Full ingredient details below.  Click on the Thumb Linkies to speed off to the shop to buy your collections.

Here is my make:                                          






These are the ingredients I have used:

  • White card for the slimline card
  • Ice Stickles Glitter Glue
  • Wink of Stella Clear Glitter
  • Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Drawing Ink – Cherry Glow, Cosmic Blush, Lilac Blue, Magenta Flame, Golden Glow, Scarlet Blush, Forest Green
  • Staedtler Pigment liner (for the edging)
  • Anita’s Gems in orange
  • Acetate


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 time so you’d better head off over there right now to grab it.

It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 45 - Xmas With Sparkles

Hello everybody             

Welcome to yet another Tuesday and another Digi Choosday post.  This week’s challenge is ‘Xmas With Sparkles’.

Before I get onto the challenge I just want to remind you about the brand new Colour Therapy CD’s and downloads and the brand new ColourTherapy Colouring Club too.  Have you seen them in the shop yet?  Why ever not?  If you’re into the adult colouring book phenomenon that’s sweeping the world at the moment, then why not treat yourself to something a little different.  Nikky’s collections are on CD and digital download, available in two massive collections of 70 different designs and also in sets of threes as well.  And there’s also a new monthly colouring club as well.  The difference with Nikky’s collections are that you are not restricted to how many times you can colour them, like with the books available.  You can also resize them.  So the world’s your oyster with lots of fab opportunities to print on lots of mediums and great for those of you into mixed media. 

So with sparkles in mind I’ve used a great Santa MDF shape that I picked up at Hobbycraft a few weeks ago when I picked up my MDF reindeers I used for a challenge a few weeks ago.  I made a template of the snowman to cut out and draw round the shapes onto paper from the Twiggy & Toots Festive collection papers and then used Mod Podge with hints of glitter in to coat it and then finished off with a pom pom for Santa’s hat and a ton of glitter in the Deco Art Snowtex  on his suit and boots and over the top of the paper with Glossy Accents and Deco Art Glamour Dust in Crystal and finished off the berries with some Stickles Glitter Glue in Xmas Red.  So as you can see I’ve used lots and lots and lots of sparkles.   I just can’t get enough glitter and what better time of year than Christmas!!!

Here is my make:

It's Digi Choosday - Week 44 - Reds, Oranges and/or Brown

Hello everybody            
 
Welcome to yet another Tuesday and another Digi Choosday post.  This week’s challenge is ‘Red Orange and/or Brown’.

Great colours all of them and I got so excited this week when Nikky released the Colour Therapy collections when I thought that those colours could be used on one of the colouring sheets.

Have you seen them in the shop yet?  Why ever not?  If you’re into all this adult colouring book phenomenon that’s sweeping the world at the moment, then why not treat yourself to something a little different.  Nikky’s collections are on CD and digital download, available in two massive collections called Florabunda and Inspiring Foliage both containing 70 different designs and also in sets of threes as well.  And there’s also the brand spanking new colouring club as well.  The difference with Nikky’s collections are that you are not restricted to how many times you can colour them, like with the books available.  You can also resize them.  So the world’s your oyster with lots of fab opportunities to print on lots of mediums and great for those of you into mixed media. 


Anyway onto the challenge.  I’ve used my Derwent Inktense pencils with a water brush to colour one of the images from Collection 2 and Bundle 6 onto Ultimate Graphic paper and then mounted onto red card.  You can see hints of red, orange and brown on my card and then I’ve topped it off with some black Zentangle.  Full details of my ingredients are listed below together with the Thumb Linkies that’ll take you straight to the Polkadoodles webby.

Here is my make:










These are the ingredients I’ve used:

  • 8x8 red card
  • Black Staedtler Pigment Liners
  • Ultimate Graphic paper
  • Ice Stickles Glitter Glue in Crystal Ice
  • Ribbon –brown and white spotty
  • Derwent Inktense pencils in Poppy Red, Baked Earth, Tangerine


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 time so you’d better head off over there right now to grab it.
