Corry This time I have made a card with this lovely stamp Pip Monster Costume Onesie

For the background I have used distress ink and sprinkled it with water. After that I used delicate doodles-clear-stamp on the background and colored the Pip monster with zig markers.

The Polkadoodles products that I worked with are

Jane - I have created a card with one of the fabulous new stencils and silhouette stamps. I have used a really textured watercolour paper and inked with Distress Oxides.

Magical Corner Polymer Stamps
Textures Galore Polymer Stamps
Magical Grasses Stencil

Terry: I have created a simple card this time with lots of fabulous clearstamp sets from Polkadoodles, love the flowers and colored them with aquacolors. The flower on the bottom of the card has been curled up to give it a 3D effect. After I stamped the flowers, I stamped some hearts on the card and colored them with half the waterpaint and with the Sparkle Pen from Spectrum Noir Last but not least I placed the sentiment.

The Polkadoodles products that I worked with are:
Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens
Perfect Wishes Clear Stamp Set
Pretty Perfect Clear Stamp Set
Every Wish in the World Clear Stamp Set

Lou Sims: I have made a mini art book using lots of elements from the Creative Doodles Collection coloured with water colour acrylic inks ...

Nikky...I wanted to share with you this super cute little A6 pocket book thingy I made using products from our new Making Faces collection which is part of my new Foundations range... 
 There's a closure which is held with magnets I inserted under the front cover so it has that really satisfying magnetic snap - am I the only one who cant stop closing that kind of thing? lol, open, close, open, close, open close....
The weird shaped stripey closure arm with the flower attached is actually just one of the doodles cut straight from the cardstock sheet (bottom right) - the card is 350gsm so really nice and heavy and perfect for book making...
 I inked up the inside with a mixture of different inkpads and followed the doodle lines on the same sheet to create 2 curved pockets which I glued in. I fussy cut some of the extra bits on the sheet to make embellies and just glued those in after I inked them up a bit...
 ...and then finally I Stamped the girls face and assembled the body clothes and doodled some curly hair onto her. I adore those specs, so cool and funky! I really love this little book it only took about an hour to make but there's something about it I really love, probably the stripes because I'm a spotty stripey girl (as my wardrobe will tell you).
I used:
