Doodle Palace Sneak Peek :-)

This fab tropical island scene and parrot will be released by the Doodle Palace on Tuesday :-) so you have to wait a few days !! :-)

I coloured the image with copics and paper toled ( new name for 3D'ing :-)) The papers are all from Funky Fairy's Papercrafts, the It's so Distressing pack. I also used a little brown/turquoise coredinations and plain brown cardstock for layering.
The sentiment was from a Simon Says Clear Stamps SENDING SUNSHINE Exclusive Set,, This is my all time fave sentiment set !

I followed the fab sketch on The Next Level Challenge

I embossed the coredinations and heat embossed the sentiment so this card qualified for the Dare U2Digi Stamp Challenge
The Cupcake Craft Challenge and the Everybody's Art Challenge have 'Summer' themes. This is my first entry for the EAC, I only found this challenge a couple of days ago. I am very sorry thet the Cupcake Craft Challenge is closing down :-( Very sad,,, this was one of my faves !

The Pink Elephant is asking is to use our fave colour combo,, well I don't have an ABSOLUTE fave cos I like purple/black and lots of others too, but brown/turquoise is one of my faves :-)

And it just so happens that the Stamp With Fun Challenge has this colour combo this week :-)

I think that's 6 challenges !!! I'don't remember entering so many with 1 card before :-)

Thanks for looking, I really appreciate your comments and feel right down in the dumps if I don't get any so please leave me one :-)

Happy 4th July for all my American visitors,, have a lovely holiday weekend :-)
