Polka Doodles Challenge - red, white and blue....

Hello again,

Red, white and blue is the challenge this week over on Polkadoodles Challenge Blog and so here is my design to add some inspiration....

Red, white and blue immediately made me think of American TV shows and the amount of shopping they do...especially shoes!!!

So I used chose the Dollie Girl Talk CDrom from Polkadoodles (which is also available as full collection digital download!) and put together the fully coloured image of Dollie Shop with the un-coloured image of the shop (as below).  You can easily mix the pre-coloured images with the un-coloured ones, meaning that you don't have to colour everything and they print out so beautifully its almost a shame to colour your own!

Finished card is 5''x5'' square

I used my Graph'it Marker Pen's to colour the shop image (see how it easily blends with the pre-coloured printed image of Dollie herself!):
Bricks & roof: 3110, 4155, 4115, 4155, 4170 & 3110
Flowers: 5110, 5210, 5215, 8220 & 8250
Glass: 9500 & 9502

I also printed out 3 shoe icon embellishments from the Dollie Girl Talk CDrom and after colouring them punched them out with a 1'' circle punch...I then covered the shoe's with glossy accents so they shine!

Add a rushed ribbon, some flowers and the border is complete!
I also added a sentiment from the CD and punched red hearts :)

I hope you can join in the fun over at The Polkadoodles Challenge Blog and I hope this gives you some inspiration for red, white and blue!


Happy crafting
