Let's go Floral

For the new challenge over at the Polkadoodles I've gone a little floral.

The image is called Crocus from the Darling buds of May series.

I've coloured her with Polychromo pencils using some lovely pastel colours. The background papers are from winnie Sugar sprinkles paper heaven 5 and paper heaven 6.


I've completed the design with some flowers and lace.

Only a Rose

A little project completed this week using some of my favourite Sweet Poppy products.

I have made this using a new stencil called Single rose. I've used Distress  Oxides through the stencil for the rose and then coloured over the top with Polychromo pencils to add a bit of depth to the colour.

 I've made a frame for this using dies. There is 5 layers of card, it was a bit of a fiddle to get them to all line up, it makes a nice depth of frame and it's nice and firm instead of one layer of card on foam pads. I then stenciled just the leaves round the frame. Then just a greeting to complete. Perfect for a birthday for the one your love.

Bright Candles

This is my inspiration for this months challenge at the Colour Crazy Craft Challenge.

Our sponsor this month is Hetty Clare and this is one of there images called

 I've coloured him with Polychromo pencils, made his candles quite bright and cheerful. To match that I've pick bright papers from my left overs. I think it's quite satisfying when you actually use some of all the leftovers that we keep.

Reach for the Stars

Here is my inspiration for the new Polkadoodles challange.

I've used a Sparkles Unicorn called Love you to the moon and Stars.

I coloured the image with Polychromo pencils. The bright papers are from the Sparkles rainbow papers.
They are so bright and cheerful. Because the papers are quite bright I kept the background a little calmer.

 There is a punched border and cotton ribbon along the join in the background papers and a stamped sentiment.
