We do Doobadoo!

Good morning, ooooooh how exciting, its the first challenge at 'We do Doobadoo' today and what fun we've had playing with all the gorgeous goodies from Dutch Doobadoo. Talk about kid in a sweetshop lol. Our first challenge is all about hearts and there is a fabby prize up for grabs too so do pop over to the new challenge blog and have a little look around.

I made a little wall hanging by cutting a heart shape from grey board and priming it with Maimeri Gesso before getting busy with Maimeri Light Modelling Paste and the gorgeous a5 'Bricks' stencil from Dutch Doobadoo. Once that was dry I added some crackle paint and once that was dry I added colour with permanent red tint and burnt sienna tint PanPastels. The image is one of my favourite Polkadoodles stamps, coloured with Graph'It markers.

I've put that many embellies on you can hardly see the lovely brick effect lol:

Here are some of the gorgeous products from Dutch Doobadoo that i've used to create my little wallhanging, you can find them here:

Card/Paper laser Art A5 - Butterflies Card/Softboard laser Art A5 - Honeycomb Card/Paper laser Art A5 - Buttons Mask/Stencil Art A5 - Bricks

I've also added a doily, paper flowers (most from my stash but a couple of roses made with aTattered pine cone die), lace, ribbon, paper flowers and a sizzix die cut birdie on a branch.

I'm entering this one in the following challenges:
Alphabet Challenge: b is for buttons and bows
Creative Corner: button up
Paper Pretties: lots of layers
Penny's Paper Crafty: anything but a square
Papertake weekly: anything goes

Thanks for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
