Sketch at Polkadoodles

Hi there it's time for a mid-challenge post, over at Polkadoodles it's a sketch for you to follow. I quite like using a sketch when I haven't got any ideas floating around in my head as it can focus the mind a little easier. I really like this sketch so used it as it is and have used some papers from the Winston Collection because I had already printed them out and they work so well together and I also used one of the Pretty Sweet girls which are available as both single digis and on the cd.  I coloured Piper in with a mixture of markers and am still practising to be able to get the hair as I want it but some way to go yet.  The flower is cut from the same paper as the backing and I used a Spellbinders die.

This is the sketch that I used and you will need to follow too, please come over and join in!

A Card for a Male - CD Sunday

Hello all it's that time again and another challenge over at CD Sunday, this time it's A Card for a Male and this has been chosen by Wendy.
For my card I have used a shaped card which gives a bit of interest and have used the fabulous jam packed collection from Polkadoodles which is Winston.  There are so many things on this cd that it is suitable for everyone, Winston has a friend and her name is Etty and there are so many backing papers that you really are spoilt for choice, there are the Kraft papers and then there are some beautiful pastel and pretty ones.

I chose this image because I thought it would make a great retirement card, I matted the image onto plain black and did the same for the backing paper, the two shapes are also just resized and printed from the cd, in fact apart from the buttons and the strip of Kraft card that I put through an embossing folder I haven't needed to add anything as it is all there just waiting to be printed.

I hope you like this and feel inspired to come over and join in, the winner of the top three gets a little something too.
