Polkadoodles Challenge!! My DT Post xx

Hiya its Friday and there it's New Polkadoodles Challenge Day!! xxx

Please check out the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog for all the info for this Challenge

Here is the Project I have made for the Challenge x

I made a pretty pot for some of my Fave pens by Upcycling a 'Crisps Tube' and using some fab Papers, Embellishments and a Sentiment from the New 'Dollie Goes East' CDrom from Polkadoodles

I covered the Crisps Tube using a Paper from the CDrom which I trimmed to size and attached using Tacky Glue. I have used Organza ribbon for a pretty edge to the top. the Crisps Tube needed to be recoloured at the top where the lid was removed so i did this using a Silver Ink Pad brushed over to match the silver of the rim. The Sentiment I trimmed and used a corner rounder punch and then same with a nice pink paper.
The Flower Embellishments I cut out 4 times the decided which bits needed to be cut down to make a decoupage the attached to the pot using Glue Gel.

I also wanted to make a pretty tag using some of the left over paper and then chose a pretty Digi, Letter Tiles, Build-a-Fleurs and some other Embellishements also from the CDrom.

I coloured the 'Dollie' Digi Image using some of my Fave Markers. The Tag I made using Kraft Card I have distressed the Edges and then inked using Tim Holtz distress inks 'Spun Sugar, Frayed Burlap'. I then trimmed a piece of the Paper to fit the front which I have inked the edges using Tim Holtz distress Inks 'Spun Sugar, Frayed Burlap'. I die cut some flourishes from the Kraft card and attached these in the corners. I coloured the Butterfly Embellishment using the same colours of markers as 'Dollie's' dress, trimmed the Butterfly and attached to the top of the Tag. The Letter Tiles I took into my graphics program to shrink their size then printed them used Glossy Accents over them and let them dry before cutting them out and attaching to the Tag along the side. I fussy cut the 'Dollie' Image and fixed to the tag. The Rolled Rose Build-a-Fleurs I cut out from the sheet I printed them on and then rolled them up using a Quilling Tool, then attached them to the Tag.

I really enjoyed colouring this 'Dollie' Image and I really love the very fresh look of the Oriental in the 'Dollie Goes East' CDrom so different from any other Oriental Collection I've ever seen xx
