Little friends




   Today sees the start of a fresh Aud Sentiments challenge. It has an anything goes theme and is being sponsored by Polkadoodles.
   I have used their digi stamp called Sunshine delight - little friends and coloured it using Promarkers but using Derwent Coloursoft pencils for the sky and grass. The sentiment was computer generated. The mat and background papers were from a very old paper pad by Lili of the Valley and NitWit Collections. The decoupaged string of daisies was cut using a Tattered Lace flexi frame die and coloured using Promarkers.

Dragon with dragonfly


   This image from Lee Holland called Dragon with dragonfly was coloured using Derwent Coloursoft pencils and matted onto green card. The frame was cut using a Tattered Lace die from their South Field Picture Decoupage set.  I also used another die from this set to create the oval shaped card. The sentiment cut using a Tattered Lace die was placed on an oval cut using a Spellbinder die.
