Trying out something new.....

Ok, so I don't "do" digi's and it's been aaaaages since I did any decoupage, but here goes.....

My eldest son, Marc, wanted a card for his girlfriend for Valentine's Day and he wanted something a bit cute :-) This little fella is Pookiechu from the Peepos collection by Erica Martyn. He's a freebie, available here, along with the spotty paper and sentiment. He's pre-coloured although I did colour in the hearts in the top right using my promarkers. They're a freebie from Meljen's designs and I think they're so cute!

As you can see here, I've layered him up but my scissor skills aren't that great - I blame my left-handedness!
I embossed the white layer using the mini polka dot embossing folder from papermania. The gems and ribbon are from my stash, but I have to say, I'm not too keen on the ribbon anymore!

I cut the spotty paper using my nesties and followed a fab sketch from Pollycraft Monday Challenge. Hope you like it! I've also been playing with another digi image but that's for tomorrow! (Oooo, get me! How many days in a row have I posted now?!?)
