Polkadoodles New Release - Ula Be Strong

Hello, me again!
So here is another sample I made for the launch of Nikky’s super cute new Polkadoodles character ULA!

So this is ULA BE STRONG and I decided to decorate a MDF plaque with some of the fab papers and toppers from the BELLE PAPILLON COLLECTION.

I covered the plaque with paper then added silver gilding flakes to the edges! Oh!  My!  Word!  I had forgotten how utterly unruly this medium is. I thought the Frantage and I had fallen out but this reached a whole new level!! Not too sure my neighbours had ever heard language like it!!

I think this image may be my fave of the collection; just love her! And look at her amazing ‘do’!

Colouring: Faber Castell Polychromos
Paper and pre-coloured toppers: BELLE PAPILLON COLLECTION
Others: MDF Plaque - Gilding Flakes (boooo!) – Gilding Wax - Clay Butterflies - Pearls – Tonic Nuvo Drops

So stand for no nonsense (especially from gilding flakes) and march your way over to our Facebook groups, POLKADOODLES CRAFTING, DIGI CHOOSDAY & COLOUR CRAZY where you are sure to be inspired by our amazing DT.

Thanks so much for looking and taking the time to leave such kind comments!  Enjoy your day!

See ya!
