Happy Birthday to Polkadoodles!
One of my favorite crafting companies Polkadoodles is celebrating there 1st birthday, to celebrate they have some fab n funky papers to download for FREE!
For this weeks extra special challenge you have to use these papers in your work, therare extra special prizes up for grabs as well, the theme for this week is dimension & texture.
I love the colour combo of blues n browns so decided to use that colourway (there are 2 to choose from), I used kraft card as my base, some c'ordinations card which I have embossed with a CB folder and lightly gone over with sandpaper, the edges of the card have been distressed, no expensive distressing tool. just the edge of a pair of scissors. I have used some craft wire, brads,leather thonging and a little dangling charm ro add even more dimension and texture, plus foam tape to add even more depth.
Happy Birthday Polkadoodles...may thenext year bring even more scrummy stuff!
