You may have noticed the little change to the blog, just a bit of change. With winter here, I felt I needed something Spring like and bright.
If you read my previous post, HERE, then you will know I have been struggling of late. I think it maybe the time of year, with Winter and lack of sun, and the aftermath of Christmas.
Anyhow, I decided that it may help if I had lists, or a structure of what I want to do with my crafting and my blog. I want to try and share more, and be more crafty than of late.
So, I will unravel it all as I go, because I don't want to commit to something that may not happen, if you know what I mean.
To start off with, I thought I could make a Saturday, a Sketch it day. So, look for a sketch, or a challenge sketch and make something. Helps with the try to find that mojo :-)
This morning, I decided to use a sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches along with some fabulous Polkadoodles pre-coloured digis.
I love using the design sheets off the Polkadoodles CD, as they generally have all the elements you can put together. This one is from the new Polkadoodles Work & Play 9 - Love and Kisses collection. Nikky, has been busy adding lots of the new collections to the digital download section of the shop, so no more waiting for the postie. Check the thumblinky below, for other options to purchase individual digis too.
I added some foam pads to the image layer, to give the card some depth. I couldn't resist adding some Sakura Gel Pen to the papers and image and where ever seemed appropriate :-)
I inked all of the edges and then distressed them with my Tim Holtz distressing tool.
For the inside I did two simple layers and added some hearts that are cut using my Cameo and they are SVG files on the CD!
This CD is perfect for weddings, engagements, even Valentines.
That's it for today. Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.
