Totally Papercrafts Challenge #15 & Pollycraft Friday Freebie

Good Morning All!!

Are we all fed up with the election jargon yet here in the UK?? Deary me goodness knows what will happen next.
Anyway at least we have crafting to take us away from all the political mess, it's Friday and time for our next challenge for you at Totally Papercrafts and of course it's Friday Freebie day at Pollycraft.

Thank you to everyone who joined in with my sketch challenge last week, so many wonderful takes on it.  This week the challenge is hosted by Anne and her challenge for you is...


Real or faux it's up to you!!

We this week welcome back Nikki from Bunny Zoe Crafts as our sponsor with a gorgeous prize for our winner.

The DT have been busy with their machines, hand sewing or just plain faking it and have plenty of gorgeous inspiration for you, so please do check out my fellow teamies work.  Here's mine...

I have used this weeks Pollycraft Friday Freebie for my stitching card.  Meet Cuthbert 'FOR YOU' unlike the normal weekly freebie's this little darling is only going to be available for 24 HOURS, so don't be hanging around to get hold of him as after the 24 hours he will then join the Cuthbert & Kiki set of images due for release on Monday 10th May in the Pollycraft shop.  So to get hold of him for free now, hop on over to Tales from Pollycraft.


Digi Image - Pollycraft 'Cuthbert - For You' (Friday freebie available for 24 hours only)

Papers - Papermania

Colouring Mediums - Watercolour Pencils with Sansodor, Copics and Promarkers

Flowers - My own crochet flowers

Buttons - From stash

Sentiment - Papermania

Other Tools - Paper Pricking Tool, Whisper Markers for faux stitching and Brass Stencil for butterfly.

Some people have asked me that when I use watercolour pencils with sansodor and Copics/Promarkers which areas are coloured with which, so I will try to remember in future to include which areas are coloured with which.  For this image....

Watercolour Pencils & Sansodor - Cuthberts furry body.

Copics/Promarkers - Everywhere else.

When there is fur detail on an image I like to use the watercolour pencils blended with Sansodor as for me this gives me the shading and texture I'm happiest with to make an image look more furry/fluffy.


We do hope you will be able to join us for this weeks challenge, we can't wait to see what you come up with.

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!!
