LDRS Creative – Polkadoodles: Tea-riffic

Hello everybody!  How are we all?

I’m on the LDRS CREATIVE INSPIRATION BLOG today and I am showcasing this fabulous stamp from Polkadoodles called TEA-RIFFIC.

Ok so I was clearly still in Halloween mode when I came to colour this lovely lady but I was also inspired by the fabulous palette in the gorgeous SPLENDID AZURE PAPER COLLECTION.  The ‘bubbly’ pattern reminded me of a witches brew....and of course there are some here in the UK that call a cup of tea ‘a brew’ so it all fitted together quite nicely! Or so I thought anyway.


I used lots and lots of the AWESOME LDRS DIE SETS, (check out the fabulous offers on these at the moment in the store) using the BASIC CUTTING EDGE BORDERS 1 to create a shape for one of my mats.  I even made some rather dodgy looking spiders from the bow top of one of the dies in the DOTTED WINGS DIE SET!  Hmmmm! At least they are not as terrifying as some of the ‘monsters’ I have had in my house just lately! Eeeeeeek!

Ingredients:
LDRS Rubber Stamp Set: POLKADOODLES – TEA-RIFFIC
Ink: Onyx Black Versafine Clear Embossed
Colouring: Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers
Other: Spiders Web – Tonic Nuvo Crystal Drops

So check out the LDRS Creative blog HERE where you can see all the incredible makes from the amazing DT and go to the store HERE to get all your gorgeous goodies.  We also have a YouTube channel full of education and inspiration and visit our Facebook page where we would love to see all YOUR LDRS creations! And you must sign up to the NEWSLETTER to be among the first to hear about special offers and new releases!

Thanks so much for looking and taking the time to leave such kind comments; I really do appreciate it!  Have a wonderful day!

See ya!

Hello! Hope all is well with you and yours!

It’s time for a new challenge over on THE COLOUR CRAZY CHALLENGE BLOG and our weekly theme is always ‘Anything Goes’! There is a wonderful prize on offer for our lucky winner so check out THE BLOG for details.


This time we have 2 fabulous sponsors!  Whoo hoo!



and



Another Halloween project from me today using an adorable ‘too cute to spook’ image from SCARP N DIPITY  called SCRIBBLE SALLY WITCH.


Another die purchase that I could not resist was this fabulous ‘graveyard’ from Tattered Lace and I placed everything on a background that was originally headed for the bin!! I wanted to play with the sparkle pens that came as part of my Gemini machine bundle and used some cheap watercolour card to see how they blended…well they didn’t (blame poor card not pens)! Lovely and sparkly though but they sort of worked as a sunset sky in an abstract kind of way so I kept it. I’m a crafter after all!


Ingredients:
Colouring: Skin: Linen (SN Marker) + Walnut Brown, Bistre, Cinnamon, Lt Flesh & Drk Flesh (FC Polychromos) – Hair: 99, 98, 97, 94, 26 (Lyra Polycolour Pencils) – Red: CR8 (SN) + 94, 26 (Lyra) – Black: IG4 (SN) + 99, 98, 97 (Lyra) – Yellow: 83, 84, 85 (Lyra)
Colouring Paper: ULTIMATE GRAPHIC
Background: Leonie Pujol Glitter Brush Pens – ‘Bright Lights’ on (very cheap) Watercolour Card
Dies: Tattered Lace ‘Fright Night’ – X-Cut Alphabet – Tonic ‘Grass’ – Elizabeth Crafts ‘Bat’ – Spellbinders ‘Grand Labels 1’ – Tonic ‘Nesting Circles
Others: White Gel Pen

So witch ever way you look at it you need to visit THE BLOG and join in with our fab colouring challenge, and as it is Anything Goes you have no excuse!!!  And if you love colouring why not share your makes with us in our FB GROUP! We would love to see you.

Thanks so much for looking and for your kind comments and have a wonderful weekend!
