It's also Chinese New Year today! Happy New Year to any that maybe celebrating :-)
We can finally start sharing Nikky's new Polkadoodles release with you - Dollie Daydream - Goes East. This CD is absolutely stunning! Loads of amazing papers, sentiments, embellies, digis; you name it this CD has it all. If you weren't really into Oriental, this will surely blow you away !
I'm going to show you the close up first - these digis are just so amazing. I coloured this one with pencils and Gamsol.
Isn't she just fab.
The screen template is also on the CD and I use my Silhouette Cameo to cut out two layers of the screen. Then I printed the scene onto some good quality tracing paper and sandwiched it between the two layers of screen. Makes a great decoration for today, don`t you think :-)
Because the screen is on tracing paper, I was able to put battery operated tea lights behind her, so she lights up :-)
The butterflies, flower and the scroll are all from the CD too!! I cut out the scroll, inked the edges and then rolled the ends. For the flower I layered it up a little to give it a little more depth.
Will be showing you a few more bits and bobs of the next week or so. Here she is just once again :-)
I am entering this screen decoration in the following challenges.
A Random Fan - Challenge #1: It's Digi Time (closes 8 Feb)
