Nerds Are COOL!

Can you guys rewind your memories back to the Pollycraft Blog hop last week? Can you remember the new line of Luna Bitterfrosts?! OF COURSE YOU CAN!!

Well here she is again..


I had a total field day when Paula uploaded the new images to the DT blog - seriously. Everyone has been working away behind the scenes creating gorgeousness with these, so keep your eyes peeled through the next few weeks.

Is she not brilliant?! HA! I LOVE her oversized glasses and her lab coat with all of those pockets! So fun! :) I have coloured the whole image with ProMarkers and added some Dovecraft chalk around the outside - sorta looks like a nuclear glow! LOL!! Check out her red hair! :)

I have coloured the image to coordinate with some more papers from My Minds Eye - Oh La La for Her collection. I plan on making a card with each of these Lunas using this paper collection. Gotta use it uuuup!

I created the sentiment on Word and printed it on some of the patterned paper then added some gems either side to draw attention to it. Nerds are cool. :)

I added some stamped 'splodges' in Frayed Burlap Distress Ink around the outside of the image and doodled and distressed all edges. Some Stickles around the outside of the image finishes it off! :)

As for embellishments I added some Wild Orchid Craft flowers, as well as some pink grosgrain ribbon from The Ribbon Girl on top of a misted Prima flower aaaand some gems from Kaisercraft.

Here is a shot of the inside. I added another sentiment using a Studio G alpha set. NERD. :)
