Kung Hei Fat Choy 2014

Hi everyone!  How the dickens are you all?  I have something to share today - say YAY!!

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 !

** Dollie Daydream Goes East CD Collection

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)

Happy Crafting.
