Something Feminine at We do Doobadoo

Good morning folks, its a bit of a grey start to the weekend but that's a good excuse to leave the gardening and play in my craft room lol. My project this morning is a fun little wall hanging for our brand new challenge at We Do Doobadoo where our theme is Something 'Feminine'. You don't have to use Dutch Doobadoo products to play along and of course if you're our lucky winner you'll receive some gorgeous goodies to play with. If you can't wait for that though, here's a link to Dutch Doobadoo stockists in the UK

I've used one of the fab Shape Art Templates and grey board to create my base and used the same template to cut out the backing paper and the mats for the sentiment.

The image, sentiment, paper bows and papers are from the Polkadoodles Work and Play 6 collection, the image has been coloured with Graph'It markers and the papers have been distressed with Spun Sugar and Tea Dye distress inks. 

I've added some Laser Art Buttons and Kraft Stars, both embossed with frantage EPs. To finish of I made a little 'feather duster' using an olive stick painted with acrylic paint. I stuck some feathers to the top and added some pink braid to the top and a sparkly bead to the bottom. OMG you should have seen me by the time I'd finished, feathers everywhere lol.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
A Little Bit Crafty: distress it
Aud Sentiments: any sentiment other than birthday
Crafting by Designs: anything goes
In the Pink: buttons and bows
Paper Shelter: Stars/hearts
Wag'n'Whiskers: for the girls

Have a great day and thanks for popping by today

  1. This is a little bit different for you Claire but shows you do cute very well indeed. It would fit perfectly into our theme at Allsorts this week.

    Dull here as well so perfect excuse for crafting, well in my case not exactly crafting I'm making sugar flowers for an Anniversary cake.

    Have a lovely weekend.
