Irre - Hello everyone. Sharing today a new project with the digital stamp Wanda fairy ballerina and I created a card with her. I colored her with Copics alcohol markers and then cut her out. For the background, I used heavenly circles stencil together with Distress ink. Then, I stamped with stamps from Doodle dragonfly and Queen for a day stamp set on the edges. I also used distress ink for that. After that, I painted the stamping with water to create a little more rough look. I added the Wanda stamp to the paper with 3D foam pillows. Finally, I added a sentiment from Winnie daisy greetings, quotes and sentiments pack that I rounded the corners on.
Tinne - Hi everyone! We are celebrating Nikky’s birthday, and this is the card I made for this occasion. I used the beautiful Flower Meadow digital stamp, and coloured it with my Copic markers. 
These are the combinations I used:
  • Top left flower: R24, R22, R20, R01 and R000
  • Top right flower: E17, R22, R20, R01, R000
  • Middle flower: YR27, YR24, YR21, YR000, E44
  • Bottom left flower: the same combination as the middle flower
  • Bottom right flower: R35, R32, R30, R00, Y38, Y32, YR24, YR21, YR000, E44
  • Greens: G46, G43, G40 and G28, G24, G21, G20 and G19, G16, G14, G12 and YG17, YG13, YG11
After I coloured everything, I cut the image to the right size and sprinkled some black paint over it. Once drie, I glued it on a white base card. Next I cut out a thin frame, using sparkling golden paper and white cardstock. I glued them on top of each other to create strength and dimesion. I white heat embossed some sentiments from my stash on black sentiment strips, put some foam tape behind them, and glued them on my card. I hope you like it!


Wendy 
- Hello everyone wishing you all a very Happy New Year! Today's card is for a January birthday and we were asked to use the colour Red and an oval. I decided to use one of the cute images from the January collection called Heart on Your Sleeve, coloured with my Promarkers. The Sentiment is from the Rebel Girl collection and the pretty polka dot papers are from the Lily bug collection...

Irre - Hello everyone. I'm back with a new project for Polkadoodles. I chose this time to create a small canvas. I created this with the digital stamp called Rebel Rebel Girl. I colored her with Copic alcohol markers. The background of the canvas I colored with ink spray and acrylic paints. I decorated the canvas with sewing thread behind the colored stamp and framed the canvas with black flower pot stones. I added some more textures with art stones and added with splatters to the canvas. Finally, I added a title from the Winnie Daisy greetings, quotes and sentiment pack.  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/scrapbyirreInstagram: @scrapbyirre

OK, over to the challenge - let's see what the team have created for you today! More great projects from the team this month!

Rachael - Hi crafting friends. This week I thought I would use one of the beautiful new releases to make a Christmas card but in non traditional colours. I know poinsettias are not blue, but that’s the great thing about craft you can make things whatever colour you like! For this I used the beautiful new poinsettia-wreath- combined with an embossed background and silver card it makes a stunning Christmas card.


Irre - Hello everyone. It's time for another project made for Polkadoodles. This time, I used Coral mermaid on the rocks to create a round canvas. I colored her with Copic alcohol markers and added her to a round canvas. I decorated it with fishnet, seashells, flowers, flower pot stones, art stones, and micro beads. Finally, I added a title from Coral mermaid quotes and messages set. My Instagram: @scrapbyirre, Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_BjwL9Z8gt1i_E1WmKmrWg

Natalia - Christmas is coming :) ... this is the most wonderful time of the year. I've prepared today a metal jar for Christmas cookies. I decorated it with coloured printable papers and dig stamps. I used the Gingerbread Bella Christmas bear - colour clipart from Bear-y Christmas collection. It's simple to make and would be a nice gift for someone!


Jane – This ‘sweet’ little fella is THEO PENGUIN CANDY STICK and I have used the FUNKY VORTEX STENCIL to make him a few extra candy sticks for later. I also used this stencil to create the background and fussy cut and coloured the sentiment from THEO PENGUIN GREETING BUNDLE.

Sabina - For this week's challenge I am sharing with you a page in mixed media technique in autumn colours. I applied rustic paint in green and orange colors to the cardboard and dried it with a heat gun. I added some texture paste using a stencil. This gorgeous stamp Birthday Cake Rebel girl is colored with Ohuhu markers and cut out with scissors. I used the paper with hearts from the set Happy Cactus Succulentprintable paper patterns 1 and a sentiment from the Winnie Daisy greetings,quotes and sentiments set. I added some red acrylic paint and black oil pastel along the edges.
