Well it's the start of a brand new week...and we have a brand new challenge for you over at POLLYCRAFT....and i'm pleased to say i'm the host for this week,i've set a colour theme of BLACK,WHITE + 1 OTHER COLOUR (your choice of 3rd colour)...this is my all time favourite colour combo,i think almost any colour works well with black and white....i've gone for it!
I've used "Fluffy" from the Critters and Cogs digi range...such a big softy :0)...i've coloured him using Copic markers and Prisma's,cut him out and raised him using Pinflair glue gel...i've given him two different sizes of wobbly eyes just to add alittle interest.
The papers are a free download from Summertime Designs "Limeade"...i just love these papers...i print onto super smooth cardstock 160 or 200gsm...this time 200gsm.
I've used Shabby Shutters Distress Ink to edge the papers and around the sentiment....the sentiment is from Waltzing Mouse Stamps from the "Rescue Remedies Additions" set.
Ribbon,button and self adhesive pearls from stash.
I'm also entering this card into the following challenges :-
SWEET SKETCH always a fabby sketch from Arlana.
CRAFT YOUR PASSION CHALLENGE..."Use two patterned papers"

Well all thats left to say is hope you will all come and join in the fun over at POLLYCRAFT and i almost forgot to mention we are sponsored this week by THE SECRET CRAFTER....the winner will get to pick 3 digi's of their choice :0)....

Have a lovely day
Take care
