Colour Therapy 2 Inspiring Foliage - Polka Doodles - Create & Craft Samples (Part 1)


Hello there

So a couple of weeks ago Nikky from Polkadoodles was on Create & Craft TV with another one of her new Colour Therapy Collections called Inspiring Foliage which you can get HERE

I was lucky enough to be able to make some samples for the show and over the next few days I will be sharing my five makes with you that shows just what you can do with the versatile Adult Colouring book which is such a phenomenal collection of artwork

First up I'm sharing with you a butterfly card I made







I printed the 7x7 sheet out on Ultimate Graphic paper and used Graph It Pens in the following colours to colour it
8150, 8220, 9909, 7150, 6130, 8260, 6170, 2170, 5245

I then matted and layered the image onto green and orange card and used Ice Stickles Glitter Glue on the butterfly which I printed onto Acetate and coloured the back to give it a shimmery effect and make it look like the butterfly was lifting off the page.

Hope you like my make
Stayed tuned over the week for my further makes

Take care
