Delicious Doodles

Hi there everyone!

I hope you enjoyed the summer holidays?
Well this week we have for you over at
 Through the Purple Haze Challenges 

a challenge sponsored by

and the theme?

Use your dies! Can be any die so long as it is a die.

I was lucky to get to play with the Friends for ever digi showing a horse and his best friend!

I coloured the image in the following copic colours 

Hair of girl YR 24,23,21
Skin R20 cheeks, E21,02,01,00
Jacket Horses body C3,2,00
Blouse YG 05,01,00
Horse mane C9,7,5,3

I distressed the digi edges in old paper pad 

I used a  DCWV paper pack in 12x12 on a ringed sketched pad in The lace and linen stack.  I then added another piece from the same stack across the middle i then carried on by adding a double layered lace border with pearl trim running thought the middle.

Then i decided to add a few finishing touches i distressed a heart die in weathered wood and then sanded Core impressions mini stack words and made a rosette in the top right corner that blended with the four different coloured ribbons and lace i tied onto the rings of the drawing pad.

It didnt quite come out as i expected it too but it isnt a bad one either but the spiral bound book opens and closes so thats an added bonus.

Anyway thanks for visiting my blog today and i hope you leave me a little love.
