This is something I've coloured just recently.
I've used the Sweet Poppy Stencil Octopus. I've used glossy white paste throught the stencil and let it dry.
Then I've coloured over the top with Copic pens.

Thebackground is also a stencil called circles texture background and the sentiment is also from Sweet Poppy.
Finally I've added some clear dew drops over some of the citcles.

Scaredy Cat

Well it's Halloween time again at Polkadoodles. I've made an easel card this time round. The image I've used is called Oddella with bag.

I've coloured her with polychromo pencils. I decided to keep the image colours quite monochrome with just tiny bits of colour on the bag and heart. The background papers I've used to create a scene are from Halloween trick or treat papers 1


To complete the scene I've added a die cut tree, actually there are 2 overlayed and in slightly different shades to give it a bit more depth. The cats are also die cut.

I coloured 3 images in total using polychromo pencils. The decoupaged the image to give more dimension. To give some texture on the image there is some dimensional paste added to give the impression of clouds. have used 2 patterned papers in the back ground with a few co-ordination layers.
