Digi Choosday Crafting Challenge

Hello and welcome back!!  It's Tuesday, which means time for a New Challenge at Digi Choosday Challenge Blog!  Make sure to check out Polkadoodles Shop - Nikky's images are such fun to color and I love how the sets include papers, sentiments, embellies, etc. - so great to be able to do one stop shopping!

As you know, Digi Choosday Challenge Blog features a New Challenge each Tuesday and you have 2 weeks to play along, so we have our new challenge beginning today and running until October 6, but you also still have another week to play in last week's Monochromatic challenge (ends September 29), so hope you will come play along with both!

Today's New Challenge is RIBBON and LACE.  Make sure you read the rules on the right sidebar at Digi Choosday Challenge Blog so that you can play along.  Also, a new DIGI CHOOSDAY DISCOUNT is available for 24 hrs. once the new challenge posts at 8am BST, so make sure you take advantage of that!!

This week, I created an altered notebook using a technique called Faux Mosaic.  I chose an image and sentiment, as well as some papers from Serenity Fairy Wishes Bundle.   Image Serenity Blossom, which I colored with Copics, can also be purchased as a single digi HERE and you may also purchase all the sentiments in the Serenity Fairy Wishes Sentimentals Bundle.    The other papers used are from the Winston Deluxe Full Collection and the butterfly embellies are from Twiggy and Toots Digital Papercraft Collection and can also be found in the Twiggy and Toots Embellies Bundle.   Butterflies are cut out with scissors and the top butterfly has a vellum piece on top of it, and I added Stickles to the butterfly's body.  

Image is cut with Frantic Stamper die and sentiment with die from my stash.  I added an acetate piece over the sentiment, printed the same as the piece underneath, so that it makes it stand out more against the background.  I also sponged Distress ink around the sides of the die cut out image.  I added ribbon and lace from my stash on the spiral binding.

I hope you will come play along with us at Digi Choosday Challenge Blog.  Don't forget also to check out all the fabulous DT projects.  

Additionally, there's fun to be had and much inspiration to be gained over at Digi Choosday Facebook Group and Polkadoodles Facebook Group, so hope you will join both places if you haven't already, and if you have, pop by for a visit and come share your Polkadoodles creations!

Enjoy your day!  Many hugs!!
