Something Old, Something New.

Nope, no one is getting married LOL!  It's Friday and we are starting a new challenge of at Polkadoodles this week.  The theme is Something Old, Something New, and you have to do what the theme says, use something old from your stash and something new.

It is also Polkadoodles 5th Anniversary and this May there will be lots of fun on the blog.  Today there is a blog hop for the month of May - with a fabulous give away.  Go check it out over at the Polkadoodles blog.

As a design team member we were asked to use an old collection and a new collection.

I decided to use a lovely image from the Love and Cherish collection and then the papers were from the new Work and Play collection 2.

I used a mixture of different pens for this image.

Hair - Copic E15, E18
Skin - Copic E000, E00, E93(for blush)
Dress - Spectrum Noir CR4, CR5, CR6
Umbrella - Spectrum Noir PP3, PP4
Hearts - CTMH Holiday Red

I love these papers and I inked all the edges of all the layers with CTMH Cotton Candy.

The little envelope is a QuicKutz Die, envelope and heart.

I raised up the image on some foam tape, just to give the card some depth.

Added a little bit of ribbon to finish off the front.  Then for the inside I used papers from the front and then stamped the centre panel with the lovely little rose.

So the collections I used for this were.

                    Work and Play Collection 2                                              Love and Cherish Collection
    ** Work & Play Collection 2             Love & Cherish CD-Rom

So, if you were paying attention, you might have noticed that I used some Copic markers to colour my image.  I have decided to come over to the Light side :-)  It is going to take a while to get a good collection, but my first order of 22 pens arrived.  I am going to order a few each month when I can.  I love the ones I have so far.

Anyways, get into your craft room and use something old and something new and go along and enter in this weeks challenge at Polkadoodles.
