DU2DS Challenge ~ Blue Green and White or Cream

My this week has flown, no sooner got one DT offering sorted then it's time to do the next with very little achieved in between. I loved the challenge this week as it gave me scope to develop a little scene using an image from Sandra Dry's Bollywood collection and a freebie robot crop template from Anna who posted on UK Scrappers.



The template is fabulous and cuts like a dream, all I had to do was to add the (dare I say it) peel offs to decorate.

Saloni was produced using a little computer wizardry, I opened her in Photoshop and made the skirt and top transparent using magic eraser, then opened a lovely patterned digi paper and dragge salomi over the top of it, which left all the bits I needed to color white but created a lovely patterned fabric for the clothes, sort of digi paper piecing!

Everything else was coloured with promarkers and sakura pens, a little dolls house pot plant finished off the scene.

Thanks DU2DS, I really enjoyed this one!

There is more inspiration over on the challenge blog which is now being launched every two weeks over the summer, so pop over and have a look, I dare you not to be inspired when you see the amazing work from the DT team.

Off for a few days again now (have to placate the OH after spending hours and hours over the last two challenge DT entries) Might cost me a bottle of something nice too!!

Have a good weekend everyone
See you soon
x Michelle
