Polkadoodles @ Aud Sentiments!

Hey everyone and thanks for stopping by!

Today I bring you Challenge 58 at Aud Sentiments: Using the Word ' Friend'

Our challenge this fortnight is sponsored by Polkadoodles, below is a little bit about them:

We believe in our hearts that everyone can be creative if they have the right tools at their fingertips. We strive to provide crafters with unique, beautiful, quality digital artwork, rubber stamps and other papercrafting products produced with love and care here in the UK. Our passion for what we do will help inspire you to create stunning projects and enable you to make beautiful cards, gifts and memories for your loved ones. .......don't just print it - Polkadoodle it!


And the prize this fortnight are three digital images that our DT used in this fortnight challenge! 

As usual the DT did an amazing job at coming up with some brilliant creations, each and everyone of them very different and awesome! So get your creative hands at the ready to enter in this fortnight's challenge.

My creation is below:


I thought I would do something different this fortnight and do a hanging tag for a Special Friend.

I coloured the picture in with some Promarkers (Rose Pink, Tulip Yellow, Black, Poppy, Bright Green and Forest Green) and then cut the image down to size, distressing the edges with my Tim Holtz Distressing tool. I used Prima's Anna Lee Collection, distressing the edges also, and printed out the 'For a Special Friend' sentiment (more distressing!) on the front. Pink and White Baker's Twine finished the look, with medium thick cotton string adhered to the top so that you can this sign. There is a journaling or writing spot on the back for your special message. This was all mounted on to cream cardstock as a base.
