Polkadoodles Love & Kisses

This is an image from Polkadoodles Work & Play 9 Love & Kisses. CD & you can also buy just the digi image, if you don't want the whole CD. I coloured it with Polychromo pencils & made her a little grungy as it suits the person to whom this card is going to.
The papers are Bo Bunny Ambrosia set. The lace is a huge piece I bought in Cyprus & cut out one of the layers & coloured it with a Promarker to match the colour theme.
The dies are Magnolia Vol 3 die club set & Magnolia Old Swedish Lace, again coloured with a Promarker. Flowers are from stash, ie Thailand & the sentiment is also from the above CD.

Ppinky Doll Alyce Love

Been practicing my colouring again & this time with Prisma pencils & no blending solution! I love my pencils & always have done, probably more than all my marker pens, but now I know I can get even better results than before, I have fallen in love with them again lol. In fact, I have a set of Polychromos coming my way soon for an early birthday present. Thanks Alyce, over at Kit&Clowder for the lessons.
The image is PpinkyDoll & can be bought here
The papers I have used are Michelle R Designs Whimsy Romance, which can be found here.
The lace & flowers are all from my stash, which means bought in Thailand. My friend has a son living & working there, so when she goes over to visit him, she shops in the markets & brings back heaps for us.
Lace I bought in Turkey.
The sentiment is a Paula Pascal sentiment set of clear stamps.

Gardenia by Aurora Wings

I have been practicing my colouring again & chose Gardenia by Aurora Wings. Coloured with Flexmarkers. The paper is from Trimcraft Pursuit of Happiness paper pad & the flowers are my stash, which mean they came from Thailand. I have enough flowers to last a lifetime I think lol. The pin is from an ebay purchase years ago & the leaf punch is Martha Stewart. Not much to say, oh the corners are also a Martha Stewart punch & the ribbon is silk & came from a DT package I was on a while ago.
