Add a die............

Hello there everyone!

It is Digi Choosday Challenge time again and this week we are adding a die. Before we get onto that though, there are things that I want to tell you about.

Firstly, do not forget Nikky is on Create & Craft on April 13th so if you want to see the BRAND NEW COLLECTION  you need to be there - trust me, you WANT to see it, it is ADORABLE!

Secondly, there is a NEW Work & Play out, this is W&P 10 Country Life and it is FAB. I have used it today but to see the whole thing, check out the link:

Thirdly; Lisa R where are you????? I am waiting patiently for you to contact me for you to get your prize from my giveaway. Come on girly, time is running out to claim - I will redraw it if you don't claim soon!

Ok - now business is out of the way, let's get on to the FUN! Yes this week is add a die and I don't need His Nibs to tell me, I have tons and tons of them. Boxes of them. So this should be easy for me yes? No. You see, I wanted to use the NEW Work & Play Collection and there is SO much in this new collection that I didn't actually need to use a die! However, a challenge is a challenge and I am never one to turn down a challenge! I just know His Nibs is rolling his eyes as he reads this.................there he goes again!

I opted to use 'Foraging for Mushrooms' and yes, I know I made them toadstools but I put some mushrooms in the basket..........................kind of! I made a 7x7 card and chose 3 papers from the new collection, a sentiment and some embellies. The birdhouse HAD to be used and hey, what's a card without a butterfly, I layered mine up to give dimension.

I coloured the image with my Graph'It Markers:

The markers I used are:
Skin: 4125, 4155, 3210, 4145, 4135
Hair: 1210, 1230, 1270
Hat, Gilet, Trousers, Gloves & Boots: 7101, 9100, 9102, 9103
Shirt and Tights & Flowers: 5110, 5130 
Grass: 8140, 8160
 Toadstools: 5210, 5220, 5240, 1270, 3140

The flowers are a Tattered Lace die and I think they compliment the card well. I love the papers Nikky has out in this collection and remember you can now buy the collections in 'parcels' if you don't want the whole thing......................but, WHY would you not want all of it!!!

All I needed to add of my own was the gems, I loved how this turned out.
