New Challenge at Polkadoodles Crafting - Fairy Christmas

Morning everyone,

I hope you have had a good week and Happy Friday!!

We have a new challenge at Polkadoodles Crafting today. It is an 'Anything Goes' challenge for all you lovely crafters out there (you don't have to use a Polkadoodles image to enter), but the DT were given a theme of Christmassy colours, I chose to go with traditional colours.

This gorgeous image is from the Winnie Winterland collection, she goes by the name of Fairy Christmas. I have coloured her with DI reinkers. To create the white dots on the present and the white areas on the baubles, I used some pebeo drawing gum (which masks out the areas) before I started colouring, but you need to let it dry before colouring.

Some Stardust stickles has been added to her wings to give them a lovely sparkly look.

The papers are a mixture from Winnie White Christmas (papers 1) and Winnie Winterland paper heaven 3, the candy canes and holly leaves are from the big Kahuna collection (the image and Winnie White Christmas papers are also part of the Kahuna collection or are sold separately). The sentiment is a freebie in the shop.

The pine cones, beaded stamens, red berries, frosted berry and white pearl trim are from the
 Ribbon Girl.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Dress: Bundled Sage
Present and Baubles: Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany, Black Soot

The winner of this challenge will win a $10 gift voucher to use in the Polkadoodles download store and the top 3 winners will win a free digi stamp voucher.

For some reason not all the images for the products below are showing up again, but you can still click on them to take you the product (click on them twice if it doesn't open up first time).

That's all from me today.

Have a lovely weekend.

Thank you for popping in.
