Red, White and Blue at Polkadoodles

Hello, this is my first challenge post as team member over at the Polkadoodles Challenge blog, I am so excited to be part of the team and as there were a few new members who joined at the same time there is a lot of different inspiration for you now.

The challenge runs for two weeks and this is week two so get your skates on and join in with us, I have used the Dollie Daydreams cd Girl Talk which is available on the Polkadoodles website, it's full of stunning images, papers and digi's. I decided not use a main image and go for some of the accessories which as you can see are great to be used on there own, I printed off two sheets of backing paper which I then made the box with, I have seen lots of tiny boxes around but I wanted to go bigger so used the two sheets of A4 to make this. I then chose my shoes and took them into Craft Artist so I could turn some of them around so I had pairs, I printed them out and used a combination of Graph it, Promarker and Spectrum Noirs to colour the shoes. I wanted to give the impression of a shop window with all the shoes on display. (Hope I managed it) The sentiment came from the cd too, there are some really great ones on there so it really is a one stop shop, Nikky knows what we need as crafter's.  I have bought lots of pens over the years but I must say I really enjoy using the Graph it pens and I've added a link for you so you can check them out.

That's it for today, I hope you can join and also check out the other teams makes, they are a talented bunch.

Round again - recycling

Good morning it's very early on Sunday morning and the sun is shining which makes a nice change from yesterday.
This week over at CD Sunday Carol has chosen Round again or recycling, now I do use things that look like they may have a use but I am someone who throws things in the bin without thinking if they can be reused.  I thought I was going to struggle but I bought some new bedding and it came all wrapped up and tied with a ribbon.
I used the label as a mat and kept the ribbon on, I didn't think to use something  big enough to cover the wording and keep the gold border but I had two so the next one will be used that way.
The card I made is from the Card Creations + cd Crazy Cats by Linda Ravenscroft, I didn't have the right colour roses so I used an alcohol pen to colour them but the brown flowers were already that colour. The leaves are from a Tattered Lace die set and the sentiment is from a stamp set I bought recently, I've been trying to add more sentiments into my collection.
