Challenge 2 on Polka Doodles




The first week on Polka Doodles was a resounding success, squillions of visitors and loads of great entries to the challenge. Another great sketch from Nikky this week, to join in go over to Polka Doodles to see what's going on......

We all used papers from the soon-to-be-released CD Sugar Birdies. I just printed out the cupcake ones that I wanted, the cupcake and cherries were coloured with copics, and glossy accents put on the cherries so they look just like those glazed cherries that my mum used to put on top of trifles at Christmastime! I followed this sketch quite faithfully, and used some more of the tiny making memories letter stickers for the sentiment, I have a bit of a love affair going on with them at the moment. The glitter is nice and even on the cup cake because I cut just the icing off another printed image and ran it through my xyron so that the front of the image was sticky, dump the glitter on top, then run it through again to make the back sticky. Perfect glitter every time.

  2. Yummy, yummy - you were posh Enfys having cherries like that on your trifle!!

    We used to have those little silver balls that you nearly broke your teeth on if you bit them too soon after sprinkling them on!!!

    Hoping I will have time for Challenge 2 this weekend.

    Love your card. So bright and cheerful.

    Love Jules xx

  8. I love your work! It is so great. I would like to share a website with you. I recently came across it as I was cruising the web for inspiration. The furniture at this site is every crafters dream. I am entered in a contest to win an EZ View desk. If I win, my purchase of the workbox is not too far behind. You can vote for my entry, #275 in the giveawaygallery if you like.

  21. Awesome card.. and what a good idea to put the glitter on, but after you put glitter on and run it BACK through the Xron, doesn't it mess up the glitter??
