First of all, here's my Polkadoodles offering for this week. The design team were asked to make a bag/container for a gift. I found a little white tin, and covered it with my favourite gingham paper from the Sundae of Seasons CD. I printed out the digi stamp of the bucket and apples, and coloured them with my promarkers. The apples were given a coat of glossy accents - they look almost good enough to eat.... Quite a few of you have asked if you can use promarkers with printed digi images, I do it all the time, and have never had the printer ink smear.
a few more apples, and a bit of ribbon around the tin. I have filled it with cinnamon scented sachets, so it smells really good. Be sure to pop over to the blog to see what the rest of the team came up with, and join in the fun if you like challenges.
Next week, we have a big Polkadoodles blog hop, with some great prizes to be won at each of the blogs - I will give you some sneek peeks next week. You won't want to miss it.
and here is the chef you will see me colour in the video. Note how the subtle grey shadowing adds depth to the image, although his coat remains white
and here's the finished card. Cardstock is by core-dinations, the red gingham is DCWV, and the CHEERS letters are Thickers by American Crafts
and a white on white on white card made with this sweet little angel from Lili of the Valley. I have found that the trick to making a white card, is to use texture, inking and depth. So all the layers have been embossed with the cuttlebug, the edges inked, and each layer was lifted up with foam pads. Sentiment oval by Craftwork Cards

I'll be back tomorrow with a quick round up of some extra tips for using your promarkers, if you have any questions, email me so that I can answer all the queries at once. I will try and answer all your questions in my next post
See you then
