Spots or Stripes with TLC

Hiya folks!

Time for a new challenge over at The Delicious Doodles Challenge Blog, and this week we have TWO prizes to give away!! As usual I am giving away FIVE of my Delicious Doodles digi's to one lucky winner, but this week we also have a Sponsor in the shape of Paulette from TLC Creations. She has donated us a voucher worth $10 to spend in her store - yeay!!

Lucky us on the DT too, as we got to play with some of her images/sentiments/papers. I chose to use a paper set named 'Once upon a Rose'. Gorgeous colours to choose from in this set! I wanted to use the reds, and I teamed them up with some spotty paper I had (right at the very back) seeing as the challenge at Delicious Doodles Challenges this week is 'Spots or Stripes' (or both). I also found some spotty ribbons in my ribbon box, so I used those too.

The image I used on this card is my Endless Love Dragon and Fairy one, and yes, she is holding a heart shaped pendant, but I put a heart shaped gem on the top of it. I kept the image as it comes and just shaded round it with a red pencil.

I found some old sticky hearts in my cupboard a few days ago, so used these too, as well as a recycled button from Christmas time, and a lovely heart charm. And yes! I finally figured out how to make a watermark for my creations!! Not a png though, don't know how to do those yet. . . Made do with a layered tif (for those who know what I'm talking about!)

I am entering this card into a few other challenges:
Macabre Monday - use pencils/charcoal/smudgy stuff
(used graphite pencil for image, watercolour pencil for shading and ink to smudge round paper edges - sorry it isn't a gorey one this time, but at least there is a Dragon and a Fairy!)
ABC - Sketch and recycle something (button/ribbon)
Creative Inspirations - Buttons and Bows
Totally Gorjuss - Hot (red colour and fire breathing dragon!)
Pile It On - Love is in the air
Crafty Creations - Heat it up (red colour plus fire breathing dragon!)
Charisma Cardz - Valentine/Love

Phew - just a couple then! LOL

Right, MUST go do some food shopping (yawn) before the kids get home and moan because there isn't anything to pick on!! Think I might cook up a stew or Shepherd's Pie for tonight as it's blooming cold today, bbbbrrrrrr!!

Catch ya later peeps!!
