Sisters of Craft "Anything Goes" August Challenge

Happy August everyone !  Let's hope it heralds more of a summer than we've so far experienced, we have had so much torrential rain here, it's been more like the monsoon season ! 

The sponsor for our challenge this month is Polkadoodles. I used the "Snow White" image, and for a change I dug out my Sakura jelly roll pens.  I haven't used them for ages, and once I got some Promarkers, the Sakuras took a back seat, so it was nice to resurrect them.  I don't have loads, but am pleased to say most of the ones still worked, and I used some of the metallic ones too, which created a lovely, yet subtle, glittery effect.  It might not show so well in the picture, but her dress, some of her hair and a few flowers were coloured with these ones and I was pleased with the result. 


I also used Promarkers (Cool Grey 3 and Tan) for the tree and her skin colour (Ivory), and then I added in each corner what I think is my new favourite craft item..the Tonic Nuvo Crystal drops.  I have built up my collection and they are great for creating finishes touches in the corner and you can literally make your own pearl drops/gems, as they dry quickly and can be any size you like.  Great array of colours too.  I found some alphabet stickers with pop out flowers, which I though might suit the theme, and the backing paper behind the image is from one of my Creata paper pads. Hope you like my creation.

Don't forget, this is our sponsor for August...

 
and the prize is 2 digis from the Store.
