All things bright and beautiful ....

this is the theme for the Polka Doodles Challenge this week and I had great fun playing with loads of Polka Doodle stamps this week. Oooohhh, I have missed getting inky and creating really from scratch.

For my project I have used a selection of Studio 12 stamps and Polka Doodle stamps and have cheated a little by making the sentiment match the theme! Stamps used are Shabby Chic Roses, the heart is from "Distressed Zig and Zag" set and the sentiment was made using the "Distressed Typewriter Alphabet". The background was created using the checkerboard stamp from "Wonderland Stamp Set" and I have used this stamp on the flowers and leaves for added definition. All images and sentiment are coloured with various distress inks. Finished with some ribbon and chipboard buttons which I have covered with left over Polka Doodle papers.

Looking forward to seeing you what you create for the challenge and if you want to see more Polka Doodles lovliness, why not join us on Face Book
