Digi Choosday Challenge - Week #17

Good morning everyone! I hope you're off to a great start. If it's not, it CAN be - it's Choosday over at Polkadoodles! That means a new Digi Choosday challenge, and a new DISCOUNT CODE for the Polkadoodles shop! Head over to the blog to grab it before your shopping spree!

Perhaps you've guessed where this is going - after several months as a GDT for this awesome company, I was asked to be a permanent DT member! Be still my heart! Of course I said YES, I love the amazing images, papers, and especially the awesome kits that Nikky has for us, so adorable and versatile and FUN to use for creating. I've joined the Digi Choosday Challenge Team, and this is my first "official" post.


So, today's challenge is, as always, Anything Goes! This week the DT has focused on Paper Piecing. Paper piecing is one of the first "techniques" I learned when I first started papercrafting over 18 years ago! Wow...now I feel old. But, it's a fun technique still, and I had a lot of fun with it today because it let me show off some extra digi papers along with my gorgeous image.


For today's project, I have used the fabulous Windy Day Winnie from the Special Moments CollectionI printed her out on Neenah white cardstock and hand-colored her hair and skin with a whole pile of Copic markers. I paper pieced her dress, shawl, handbag, and hat using papers from Work & Play 12 - Paper Heaven Set #6. The puffy cloud paper in the back is from Winnie Celebrations 3 - Paper 1 bundle.



This is such a sweet image! I loved coloring all of her flyaway hair! added a bit of color to the hat decorations and hat band with my Arteza fine tip markers.

Don't forget to head over to the blog to grab today's discount code! Then shop your heart out!




I also used a sketch today, yay. Viva la Verve (no surprise there!) for April and I'm entering it into the challenge.
