Have a magical day

Hello lovely peeps

 It's week 2 of the current Polkadoodles challenge 'Cream and Sugar'
(use cream/ivory, pink and coffee colours).

Here's my first inspiration card as a fully fledged member of the Design Team :D

Apart from a few buttons and a bit of mesh, everything on my card is from the Octavia Moonfly CD.
First I printed off the black & white version of the gorgeous 'Wistful' and coloured her in with alchohol markers (the pinks and greens are toned down with Graph'It marker 9400).
I also added some dots to her wings with a white pen.

There are some beautiful textured papers in this collection. I've gone with a brown linen paper for the first layer and a lovely pink check for the mats. There was no cream coloured paper so I changed the colour of a pink dotty paper using Craft Artist.  I used the colour picker to retrieve a pale brown colour from the butterfly paper and then applied it to the pink dotty paper. It came out a lovely cream colour - result!

The butterflies were all cut out from a butterfly patterned paper on the CD and I drew on the antennae with a black fineliner pen to tie in with all the lovely curly lines on the image.

My new teamies have some wonderful inspiration for you on the Polkadoodles blog so please pop over and have a look/leave some love if you get a chance. Why not have a go at the challenge this time with this lovely colour scheme -you could win a $10 voucher to the Polkadoodles shop. You don't need to use a Polkadoodles image to enter but if you do you're in with a chance of winning a Feather in your Cap.
