We're Matching at Pollycraft

I'll apologise now for the weird photos. I guess this is what happens when you take them at like half one in the morning, eh? :) I really need to get my ass into gear with regards to use of time! HAHA!!

It's Monday, Monday. Time for a new challenge over at Pollycraft. This week the theme has been set by our lovely Lynsey. She wants to see us create..


Boy oh boy, I SO wish I'd gone about this differently. LOL. I printed out two Luna Bitterfrost - Science Rocks and tried to colour them up identically. This was almost the death of me. Seriously. Miss perfectionist here nearly burst her nut tryna work this one out. But it's done. So here's what I have to share with ya..

I kept both the tag and the card pretty simple, with just a few slices of paper from My Minds Eye, some ribbon from The Ribbon Girl and some doodles. Oh, I also dug out some Stampendous? stamps and added some detailing to the kraft cardstock with some yummy lime green chalk ink. :) 

So. How identical do they look to you?! HA! I added a simple sentiment from Hero Arts to the right hand side of the image panel. I've added some doodles to both pieces using a Taken with Teal SU! marker. Something different from the usual brown. 

I've used some scraps from a My Minds Eye pad and added some punched strips and curled up the edges - I sooo love how  that looks!! I then found a little strip of twill stripe ribbon lying all unloved in my drawer and it just matched this card perfectly!! :) Scraps!! LOVE. :) Stripes, strips and scraps! LMAO!!

Head over to the Pollycraft Challenge Blog NOW!! Please join in and show us your combo sets!

Supplies. Cardstock - Bazzil; Paper - My Minds Eye; Image - Pollycraft; Sentiment - Hero Arts; Stamps - Stampendous; Ink - Colourbox Chalk Citrine; Embellishments - turquoise twill ribbon; SU! Notebook Spiral border punch; SU! taken with teal fineliner
