* Crafts Galore Encore: Winnie's Surprise Gifts


July brings another Anything Goes challenge at Crafts Galore Encore

The sponsor this month is the wonderful Polkadoodles who are offering the winner a £6.75 gift voucher(equivalent to 3 digi stamps). 

Polkadoodles kindly gave the DT some images to work with. I chose Surprise Gifts and here is my project:

Isn't this image adorable! I coloured it with Copic markers, adding some grey dots and light green ink to the background. 

I used two sets of papers for the background. The pink and green floral ones are from Trim Craft and the polkadot paper is from Anna Marie Designs. I distressed the edges of the polkadot paper and cut the rest with a Sue Wilson Stitched square die. I added a die cut bunting and some beautiful Little Birdie flowers and leaves as embellishments.

Many thanks to Niki at Polkadoodles for generously sponsoring and supporting this challenge. We hope you'll pop over to the shop to see the many products on sale.

Also, please pop over to Crafts Galore Encore to see the DTs wonderful designs. 

We'd love to see your creations.
Remember the challenge is always 'Anything Goes' and so you can create any type of project - it doesn't have to be a card.

Thanks for stopping by today!
