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 d├ęcor 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. 

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!!!    

If you would like a Guest Design Team Position on the Digi Choosday team, just have a look at our blog posts and you’ll find the details.  Good luck if you’re entering!!!
