Cool Xmas Blue and Purple Polka Dots with Graph'It Markers Challenge

Good Morning, It's finally Friday and time for some fun, so lets start today off with a colouring challenge over at the Graph'It Markers Colouring Challenge blog.

Our Theme this week is 'Cool Xmas Blue and Purple Polka Dots'  I'm sure you'll agree, it's a very pretty combination.

Here my creation, a pretty wall hanging calender;

My image and papers are all from the Angelberry Christmas CD from Polkadoodles.  You can also get this image as a beautiful clear stamp, she's called Angelberry Gift and comes with a lovely sentiment stamp, some snowflakes and a sprig of holly.

I used the following colours to colour my image;
Background - 7105, 7125, 7210, 0000
Skin - 4125, 4145, 4155, 4170, 5510
Hair - 3210, 3250, 3290
Fur - 6120, 6140, 6175, 9503
Coat and Hat - 9501, 9503, 0000

I printed a few of the papers from the CD and glued a sheet of purple polka dots and snowflake paper to a chipboard blank that i'd bought.  I left the paper to dry, then trimmed it with a craft knife, before sanding the edges and adding some Silver Pan Pastel.

I cut strips of some of the other papers, and created a woven effect behind my image.  My image is die cut with a Sizzix Framelits Die. I added a heart shaped doily along with some Snowflake and Star embellishments.  The calender is also on the CD, so i simply printed it off and trimmed all the pieces to size before clipping it to some background paper with a couple of lilac mini pegs.  To add a little more bling i added some dots of Petal Pink Liquid Pearls along with a few drops of Maimeri Glassy Gel Medium.  To finish it all off I added some Purple lurex ribbon.

I was amazed at how quickly this project came together, and think I might make a few more as presents, I know my Mum is going to want this one as soon as she sees it!

That's all from me for now, how about hopping over to the Graph'It Markers Colouring Challenge Blog to see the beautiful creations from the rest of our very talented DT.  You'll also find full details on how to join in our challenge, and what wicked goodies are up for grabs as this weeks prize.

Bye for now
