Well , it is always fun to play around with the challenge of using white and just one other colour and that is exactly the theme over at Polkadoodles Challenge Blog this fortnight.
I used a great image from the Work and Play 10 CD- Country Life. This collection is also available as an instant download and isn't the woodgrain backing paper perfect? That can also be found in the collection along with sentiments and embellishments.
I coloured the image using my Copics:
E42, E30, E47, E84, E87
The dies I used were Spellbinders in'spire Feathers On The Wind and 
Cheery Lynn Frame Die- Chicken Wire.
All pieces were inked using Gathered Twigs Distress Ink

What do you think you will create for the Challenge?
Hoping you get some crafting time over the weekend! Jackie x
