New Challenge at Polkadoodles Crafting

Good morning,

Yay it's Friday, I hope you all have a sun filled weekend.

Today we have a new challenge at Polkadoodles Crafting. The team were set a challenge with the theme of 'friend', we had to combine two images together and make something which includes a pocket, but for all you fabulous crafters out there it's an 'Anything Goes' challenge and don't forget you don't have to use a Polkadoodles image to enter and to top it all there are great prizes.

So I came up with an idea of making a criss cross card, something a bit different for me, but I am quite pleased with how it turned out.

I have coloured up Hooray Winnie and the very cute Horace. In my world they are best friends. Winnie is available as a  black and white image or pre-coloured. I have put links to both at the bottom of this post. I have used distress reinkers to colour the scene. 

The papers are from Eden Paper Heaven Plain Jane 2.

The card stand was cut from a Joy Crafts die.

All the embellishments are from my own crafty stash.

The sentiment is from the Serenity Fairy Wishes set.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Top: Victorian Velvet, Hickory Smoke
Trousers: Hickory Smoke, Black Soot
Horace: Hickory Smoke, Worn Lipstick, Black Soot
Grass: Forest Moss, Shabby Shutters

The winner will receive a $10 gift voucher from the download store and each of the top 3 will receive a free digi stamp voucher to use in the store.

That's all from me.

Thank you for popping in.

Take care.
