Naomi - Hello everyone! This week’s challenge is one of my favourites – it’s a colour challenge! For my card, I picked the Gil Rabbit Gardening digi stamp. As for the sentiment, I picked a matching sentiment from the Spring Gnome sentiments. This cute little Rabbit is coloured using my Ohuhu markers.Please follow My Instagram here...
I used the following colours: Rabbit: E400, E380 WG01, CGII00, R18, R19, Rabbit’s shorts BR2 E240 E210, Rabbit’s Shirt: BG4, BG5, BG68, Pot: Y4 YR2 YR2, Leaves: G7 G5 G9, Pumpkin: Y4 YR3 YR190

Pam - For the Fall theme with our color pallet challenge, I've selected Careful - Winnie Special Moments. They are colored with Copic markers then I added the Polkadoodles Stencil, Heavenly circles with Cracked Pistachio Distressed Oxides in the background. I've mounted them on papers from the In love with Autumn paper pack and finished the card with the sentiment and a sunflower wax seal.

Merja - On my card I used the pumpkins from Scary Boo Stamp Set and Grab Your Broomstick Stamp Set. I coloured them with alcohol markers and added some white gel pen. The background paper is from Halloween/Autumn Printable Papers and I mixed it with a black cardboard to create this fun card base full of stars. The text is from Scary Boo Stamp Set and I heat embossed it.

Nunzia: Autumn is coming and I enjoyed to colour lady bug on her leaf with autumnal shades. I glued the panel with double foam tape onto a background made up of a dot paper and a scalloped frame cut from Love Always printable Papers and Cute Lily Ladybug paper bundles respectively. The sentiment is part of Cute Lily Ladybug Ladybird themed messages.

Irre - Hi, sharing today a tag that I created for Polkadoodles with the digital stamp called Verocia from the Little Monsters collection. I colored the stamp with Copics. For the background of the tag, I used distress ink and stamped it with several stamps from the stamp set Doodle dragonfly. I also did some edge stamping. I added the Verocia stamp and added white splatters with gesso. Finally, I added a green ribbon to the tag.

Wendy - Hi Everyone! Who's ready for Fall? I know I am. We're playing with Fall colors on the blog today. I used Country Road Scene Background and colored it in amazing Fall colors and then added this adorable Autumn Wheelbarrow Halloween Gnome to complete the scene. I colored everything with Copic markers. One of my favorite things about Fall is all of the beautiful colors and I love bringing cards to life with them. I can't wait to see what you create!

Rachael - Hello crafting friends. Rachael here with more inspiration. It's now September which means those rich browns, reds, and oranges can be used in our card making. I used this die called Foxy fun paired with a gorgeous teal for a pop of colour on a stenciled background. The stencil is called leafy craft. A tip to bring our critters to life is to use a bit of distress ink around the edges to add dimension. Enjoy!

Wow!! Lots of gorgeous inspiration for you this week to use - we hope you'll share what you make with your Polkadoodles products on our Social Media! Share in our Facebook group here
