This week, we could use any image we liked for the Polkadoodle challenge as long as we coloured it in ourselves, rather than using one of the many already coloured images on the CD's. I used the Halloween download (so did quite a few of the others on the design team), that purple background paper is so cute with all the little dangling spiders with the big eyes. If I think spiders are so cute, why did I rush to get a can of lethal spray to dispatch one that was sitting on my doorstep when we arrived home tonight. It was the size of a horse - well, that might be a slight exaggeration, but it was big, and is hopefully now very dead, I am too scared to go and see in case it is mad with me and runs into the house.........
Back to the card, all the images, and sentiment are from the download. Polly is coloured with copic markers, the edge of the mat was punched with the famous Martha Stewart drippy goo border punch. Love the way the cat has his little mask and cloak on, all ready to go trick and treating.
To join in and see all the other samples, go to Polkadoodles - Ruth has done two great tutorials on colouring for you this week as well
I have done two commissions for the November issue of Creativity magazine, a new magazine for me, and I had an email asking for a mug shot. The one on the blog wouldn't do, too small (the smaller the better as far as I am concerned). So I got Anne to take a few, she assures me this is a good photo. Good grief, do I really look like this? I look like someone who has escaped from an asylum and is grinning maniacally, and what's the matter with my eyes, are they always that squinty? Why is this image nothing like the image I have in my head? Anyway, as I was under pressure to send it in, this is the one that will be printed (hopefully in postage stamp size) in the next edition. I know you would all rather see the cards, but that will have to wait - for now
