Polkadoodles challenge 8 - stashbox stamps and a recipe..

Hello and happy Friday to you...
Just a quick post , as i am typing this up before i go to work, i had a splitting head last night, and couldn't do it..
 This Friday we are starting a new feature called " Stashbox stamps" where we can get to use our stamps from other ranges to open up the endless possibilities with polkadoodles cds...

Polkadoodles Challenge-week 7 - Chocolate !

Hello and happy Friday to you..
The week has whizzed by and its time for another Polkadoodles Challenge , and the theme this week is every ones favourite              " Chocolate ! ".
So this week I used the sundaes of Seasons CD for the papers, and one of the Flutterfly Fairies " Maggie". She is stamped with my Le Plume pen in brown , I have had these ages , I guess the new Aqua markers would be just as good , if not better.I brushed the pen over the stamp and then stamped her out. Using a water brush, I dragged the colour outwards to fill in , adding shade with a touch more ink from the pen. .Matted and layered on chocolate and pink , a button to finish ..Hey Presto!

please pop over and see the rest of the dt girls' ideas, but be warned its chocolate, chocolate and even more chocolate !
Be back real soon!
