Digi Choosday Challenge Week 35 – Anything Goes!

Good morning everybody!  Hope all is well with you and yours?

It is Choosday which means it’s time for a new challenge over at DIGI CHOOSDAY and our theme is Anything Goes and as always we have a wonderful prize on offer for our lucky winner so check out the BLOG for details.   You could also win a Feather in Your Cap look for all the info HERE.

Don’t forget it is also DISCOUNT DAY so you need to grab the code on THE BLOG to get a MASSIVE reduction in the POLKADOODLES SHOP! It’s a limited offer so hurry!!

This week the DT have gone ‘Back to School’ and I have created a little Fish School or School of Fish (!) with Miss Meribelle in charge! She is actually doing housework (sorry…didn’t mean to swear) but I thought she looked as if she could be teaching the little minnows a spot of Maths using shells as a visual aid!! You know…as you do!

So it’s digi manipulation time again! Meribelle is matted onto a pre-coloured blackboard which in turn is matted onto a ‘fishy’ backing paper.  I also gave Miss Meribelle spectacles so that she could channel her inner Elton John!!

Oh course these aquatic ‘kids’ will be using their fish fingers to count and they are behaving themselves so nothing fishy is going on.  They are good pupils and that’s o-fish-al…..Ok I’ll stop now!

Digi Choosday Challenge Week 34 – Anything Goes!

Good morning everybody!  Hope you are OK?

It is Choosday which means it’s time for a new challenge over at DIGI CHOOSDAY and our theme is Anything Goes and as always we have a wonderful prize on offer for our lucky winner so check out the BLOG for details.   And don’t forget you could also win a Feather in Your Cap!

Don’t forget it is also DISCOUNT DAY so you need to grab the code to get a MASSIVE reduction in the POLKADOODLES SHOP! It’s a limited offer so be quick!!

The DT were challenged to use ‘Something New’ this week but I thought I would be thrifty and rebellious  and use goodies that I already had without resorting to printing out anything new. Ooops!  Therefore all the elements I have used today are from leftovers I had from previous projects made with the scrumptious LEMONADE FIZZ COLLECTION. Love the colours in this bundle!

But the thriftiness and rebellion stopped there as, to be a good girl and follow the DT brief, I used my NEW Tattered Lace border and Tuck In dies. Yipee!  Yes more new dies! Well they shouldn’t sell these things if they don’t want me to buy them should they!!


Ingredients:
All pre-coloured images, paper and sentiment: LEMONADE FIZZ COLLECTION
Dies: Tattered Lace ‘Scalloped Border’ and ‘Flower Tuck in’ – Elizabeth Crafts ‘Flourishes’
Others: Gems - Ribbon

The Pencil Case – Wk 26: Anything Goes!

Hello! Happy Saturday everyone!

We have a new challenge starting today on THE PENCIL CASE blog where the DT showcase the incredible LYRA REMBRANDT POLYCOLOR PENCILS and our theme from now on will be Anything Goes .

This time we are sponsored by the wonderful…
………who are very kindly offering a fab prize so check out THE BLOG for details.

I do love Oddball images and I was given this gorgeous young lady CASSIDEY  to play with.  I have to admit to going a little leftfield with my make (big shock) by creating a ‘Me and My Shadow’ scenario!  

I printed CASSIDEY twice, once ‘normally’ and once with very, very light lines.  I then filled in the light lined image with black.  I did have to cut off her feet though (ouch) to be able to continue the shadow across the ground which I hope wasn’t too painful!

Ingredients:
Image: CASSIDEY
Colouring paper: ULTIMATE GRAPHIC
Sentiment: Computer generated
Colouring: LYRA REMBRANDT POLYCOLOR PENCILS (Colours used listed on THE PENCIL CASE BLOG)
Dies: Memory Box ‘Village Lamppost’ – Die’sire ‘Ivy ‘– Spellbinders ‘Flowers’ – Tonic ‘Golf Set’ (grass tuft)

“It’s behind you” so dash over to THE BLOG and join in with our fab challenge, and as it is Anything Goes you have no excuse!!! :) And if you want to experience these amazing artist quality pencils for yourself you can get them HERE! And if you already have them and enjoy using them why not share your makes with us in our FACEBOOK GROUP! We would love to see you!
