It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 39 - Use Something New

Hello everybody   Welcome to yet another Tuesday and another Digi Choosday post.  This week’s challenge is ‘Use Something New’.
I’m back into the swing of crafting and creating since my holiday and this week have been playing with the ever so brand new Halloween collections.  Click on the Thumb Linkies below for full details.



I’ve been getting a little bit grungy with this week’s make using distress ink and some crackle paint/glaze (which can’t really be seen on my photos)
All the papers and the sentiment and the potion bottles and the skull bunting are from both the halloween collections.
Here is my make:

Hello everybody             
Welcome to yet another Tuesday and another Digi Choosday post.
I’ve been away for a couple of weeks to sunny Majorca (Alcudia) for the last few weeks and although I’ve joined in the challenges for Digi Choosday, it is good to be back and joining in with all my team mates and catching up on all the things going on in the world of Polkadoodles.
This week’s challenge is ‘Ribbon and Lace’.
I’ve used one of the fab design sheets from the Work & Play 8 Music collection which is available as a CD collection or a download collection (Click on the Thumb Links below)

It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 37 - Monochromatic

Hello everybody             
Welcome to yet another Tuesday and another Digi Choosday post and the challenge we have set you all this week is ‘Monochromatic’.
That means having or being of one colour only….  I’ve chosen black and this has given me chance to use my love of Zentangle.  I’ve been wondering for a while whether any of Nikky’s lovely digis would look as good Zentangled as they do coloured in pens and pencils.  Well, what do you think?
As like last week I’ve used one of the digis from the Serenity collection called Serenity Princess and a sentiment from the collection too.  The paper is from the Dolly Goes East collection.  Click on the Thumb Linky below for full details from the Polkadoodles webby.
I’ve printed her out onto Ultimate Graphic paper and used my Staedtler Pigment Liner pens.  Full details of what else I’ve used can be found below.

Here is my crafty make this week:









These are the ingredients I’ve used:
Graph It Pens – 9500, 9501, 9503, 9506 Scissors for distressin…

It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 36 - Shaped Card

Hello everybody             
Welcome to yet another Tuesday (don’t they come round quickly???) and another Digi Choosday post and the challenge we have set you all this week is ‘Shaped Cards’.
My inspiration for this week’s challenge comes from the actual shape of the digi itself.  She is called Serenity Resting and is available on the Serenity collection and separately as a black and white digi on her own.  For full details click the Thumb Linky below.
I’ve printed her out onto Ultimate Graphic paper which is the best best best for colouring with Graph It markers which I’ve used this week.  I then cut her out and made a card shape the same shape as her and then the sentiment is from the full collection too which I’ve chopped up and tattered the edges with my scissors and touches of ink here and there and flitterings of Glamour Dust encapsulated within Glossy Accents.  Full details of the Graph It pens I’ve used can be found below.
Here is my crafty make this week:

It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 35 - In The Pink

Hello everybody             
Welcome to another Tuesday and another Digi Choosday post and the challenge we have set you all this week is ‘In The Pink’.
Now I won’t deny the fact that PINK PINK PINK is one of my favourite colours.  That and GREEN.  So this week’s challenge is a dream for me.  You see, I have a fabulous pink and craft room where I shut myself away for a few hours every day.  
I’ve been colouring yet again and just adore the pink range of Graph It pens and so using the Drummer Girl from Work & Play Feel The Music collection I’ve coloured her up and using three of the papers from the collection and the music clef and the word ‘MUSIC’ I’ve made this week’s card.  Click on the Thumb Linky below for full details of the collection which can be bought as a CD and a download and the drummer girl can be bought as a single black and white digi too.  Check out the jute bow I’ve put in her hair, just like the Oddella Twig digi I coloured a few weeks ago.
