Week 19 - Embellish It

Hi there!!!

Tuesday has come around fast don't you think, but this is great for one reason and that's because it is Digi Choosday Challenge time and this weeks theme is 'embellish it'. I love embellishments on cards, sometimes I can go a little bit mad but also it's important to remember that sometimes less is more!

This week I opted to make my project with pre-coloured digi images. There have been a 'few' times where I have had the intense panic of realising the night before, that the next day I needed a card for the next morning. Not everyone likes papercraft kits, I know the more experienced I become as a crafter, I have moved away from kits entirely and rely on my stamps, papers, dies and my own imagination.

So when you need that quick card, pre-coloured images are the lifesaver you are looking for. I used Cycler from the new Work & Play Collection 4, I just love the way Nikky Hall has portrayed this image, she looks so free with the wind whipping through her hair, I love her!!

Nikky also released 5 digi bundles recently for the 5 original polkadoodle girls and I used one of the papers from the Enfys digibundle - such great value for money! The flowers are from the Back to Nature digi bundle and after cutting them out, I sprayed them with iridescent glitter spray, just to give them some sparkle - I don't know if this pic does them justice to be honest.

So there you have it, a quick easy card that looks like you spent ages on it! Why not pop over to the blog and see the rest of the teams inspiration for you and join in the fun with us.

As always, thanks for popping past.
