Casing it.....

Good morning. It's taken me a while since Christmas to get back into my crafting so this weeks challenge over at Polkadoodles was perfect for me. I took a little trip over to my fellow teamie's blog's and found a project that I could use as inspiration. So tonight Matthew (for those of you old enough to remember that!) I'm going to be Cheremane.

I used the Guitar Girl image from the incredible new W&P 8 collection she's also available as a digi HERE. I coloured her with my Graph'it Markers (Skin, 4115, 4155, 4170, 4145, 4135, Hair, 1210, 1230, 1270, Bow, 4145, 4135, blender. Dress, 7101, 7105, 7109, blender, Boots, 9500, 9501, 9502, blender, Amp, 9500, 9501, 9502, 9503, 9504, 9505,) Laces & Guitar are coloured using wink of stella pens.

The card base is just cut from Kraft card all the backing paper, bow, embellies and sentiment are from the CD . All I've added from my own crafty stash is embossed pink card. a black glittery peel off, distress ink and a gem.

Thanks so much for stopping by I'd love it if you left me a comment x

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Tic, Tac, Toe

Happy New Year everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas?

Over at Polkadoodles this fortnight we're having a game of tic, tac, toe 

I opted for the left hand column and I chose the Dottie Goes East CD Rom. It's also available as a digital download here. I used my graphics programme to scaled down and print off two backing papers, on the main sheet I also added my sentiment from the same CD. I ran the first backing sheet through an oriental style embossing folder and inked the edges to make the design pop then matted it onto some black card stock. My top layer was pretty enough I just added a little pink glitter to the middle of the cherry blossom and again matted it onto some black card stock. To make a faux middle layer I used a die cut border which I cut into 4 pieces and attached to the rear of my topper before mounting on foam tape and sticking on my card at a slight angle.

It'd be great if you popped over and joined in the fun!
