My First Post For Polkadoodles!

Remember my sneaky peek for a week or so ago…?

Well, it’s time to share the whole card with you today!

There is such a lot of choice in the Polkadoodles digi store that I almost struggled to make a decision on which one to pick first!!  But then a gorgeous background paper caught my eye, and the rest of the card came together soooo easily!!

I chose the Lantern image from the Dollie Goes East collection.  In order to avoid having any white border showing around the fabulous Dollie, I merged her with the background paper, before printing and cutting on the Silhouette – I put a little offset border around her so that I could work out where to place her back on the image once she was coloured.  I love the way this has made her become part of the scene, whilst at the same time making her stand out against the background.

I coloured Dollie with ProMarkers, and added a light coat of clear Wink of Stella to the dress and her eye shadow – so sparkly!!

The papers and sentiment are also from the Dollie Goes East collection; it is so easy to find a co-ordinating paper from the amazing range of colours available – the hard part is narrowing it don to just one!!
