Waste Not Wednesdays wk6

Here we are at week 6 of my little challenge to get those poor un-inked stamps and digis used... it would be lovely to see you join in using something you've not managed to use yet.  Just for fun usually, but last week I said there would be a little prize - although as usual I forgot to take a pic of it earlier!

So we need a winner, and that is....

Number 3 - Victoria

Congrats hun :o)  Can you email me your address please and I'll get your goodies out to you - here's a pic of what you've won...


I can confirm that the papers are just a bit gorgeous, because I bought a pack myself and I've used them on this week's card!




This week I've used an unused Pollycraft digi - isn't he gorgeous?  Before I got the prisma pencils I had a tendency to buy bear images and then not use them, because I find them a bit tricky to get right with promarkers.  They're so easy with prisma pencils though, I love colouring them now :o)  So the bear and the grass are coloured with pencils, the clothing, kite and sky was done with promarkers and flexmarkers.

I've used my new Papermania capsule papers - love these, every sheet is gorgeous... I bought the pink ones as well lol!  The cardstock is Stampin' Up textured kraft card.  The nestie shape is also new, it's Labels 22 and I bought them from Pink Gem here - I used the largest die to cut out the image and then used the die as a template to draw and cut out a mat for it.  Punched some holes using my cropodile and threaded some hemp twine through, the image and the card front are popped up with foam pads.  Added pearls from my stash and a Craftwork Cards sentiment tag.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
Well I hope to see lots of you joining in again, back to just for fun again this week - thanks to everyone who's been playing along, it's lovely to see your creations :o)
