Rachel - For my Challenge piece I've used a tent fold to create a bit of depth and add a 3D  effect to my card, Ive used distress inks, for the background with Little Kingdom Stamp Soup which Ive paper pieced with Blushing Blooms paper.  I've popped a step by step tutorial over on the main blog if you want to know more. I can't wait to see everyones challenge pieces.

Hi everyone, Susie here - with my very first tutorial for Polkadoodles!  I've created a lovely wall hanging featuring Birdcages...I hope you like it!...theres a full tutorial over on the Polkadoodles blog if you want to find out more...

Irre: Hello everyone. Another challenge, and for that I've made a bow card. I used papers to the bow from the Bright & Beautiful paper pack. Stamped a sentiment in the middle and added a mixture of clear gesso and flower pot stones. For the background I used stamps from the Amazing texture stamp set. 
Feel the inspiration yet?

Jane – Hello everyone hope you are keeping safe and well! Today I have a card to share that I made for my lovely sister-in-law’s birthday. 
I have added a VERY discrete ’60’ just in case she thought I had forgotten how old she will be LOL, and I have a picture tutorial on my blog.
All Polkadoodles products used:

Lou: I recently made my own junk journal and simply couldn't resist using a whole host of Weirdre Mixed Media stamps to create a double paged spread. I've stamped on to the journal pages themselves and also on to a few Gelli Plate prints. This collection of stamps really stands out on any mixed media surface.

I have also have a video on my YouTube Channel showing the pages "coming to life" HERE & on my blog, close up photos of my pages sharing greater detail,

Products used:

Nikky...I made this large A4 size project using the latest Stamp Soup sets Garden GLory and Surprise which we launched on Hochanda in May.  Can you believe this amazing face is made with the most bizarre looking stamps?
