Pollycraft Teasers!!

Hi everyone, I hope you've all been enjoying the beautiful weather today, maybe we will get the Summer we were promised after all! Anyway, just to tease you, here are 2 cards made with some soon to be released Pollycraft images from the 'Sweet Dreams' collection. I must admit to becoming slightly obsessed with these images lol!!

Well, here is my first card made with 'Melody - My fairytale' and it's my entry for the Dare U 2 Digi Stamp challenge this fortnight which is 'Distressing'...

I have distressed around the edge of the image with Distress inks in Worn Lipstick and Brushed Corduroy. I then coloured the image with ProMarkers. I thought the image was quite striking so I just went for a very minimal card to hopefully show off the image.

And here is a card made with 'Evangeline - My Little Star' which I am entering into the Bee Crafty Challenge where you are asked to colour your images, and she was a real dream to colour...

My colouring medium is ProMarkers (for a change lol!!) The font I have used is called 'Tuna and Hot Dogs on Rye' and is a really great one for free don't you think?? You can download it here if you like it too!!

Well... that's it for today, I wasn't planning on doing any crafting tonight but there are a few challenges I'd like to do so I may have to have a play!!

Thanks once again for looking and for your lovely comments!!

Love Becky xx
