Digi Choosday Challenge – Punches/Die-cuts or Anything Goes!

Good morning everybody!  Hope all is well with you and yours?

It is Choosday which means it’s time for a new challenge over at DIGI CHOOSDAY and our theme this time is Punches/Die-cuts!  How will I cope!! lol However if you are not like me and DON’T throw a die at just about everything you make J then from now on our challenges will also be Anything Goes! So no excuse not to enter!

As always we have a wonderful prize on offer for our lucky winner so check out the BLOG for details.   And don’t forget you could also win a Feather in Your Cap! See all the details HERE.

And if that wasn’t all it is also DISCOUNT DAY so you need to grab the code to get a MASSIVE reduction in the POLKADOODLES SHOP! It’s a limited offer so be quick!!

If you have visited me just recently then you will have already seen the three projects I made for the Facebook launch of Nikky’s GORGEOUS new mermaid.   She is called Meribelle and has 10 different guises and you can get them all HERE.

Well I could not resist using another for my make this week so meet MERIBELLE SWISHY TAIL!! Isn’t she fab; although she has found herself washed up on the shore in a bottle.  Bit careless! J

I used the DRINK ME BOTTLE from the fab WINNIE IN WONDERLAND COLLECTION, making it into a png and resizing it to fit MERIBELLE inside.  And because there was no way that I could produce such a delicious underwater world I used the B/W digi that comes with a pre-coloured background.

Colours used: Skin: 90, 89, 32 + 30 – Red/Pink: 92, 26, 24, 18 – Yellow: 87, 83, 84, 85 – Brown: 76, 80, 82 – Green: 65, 67, 71 – Grey: 99, 98, 97, 96
