Halloween Lollipop

Hi Everyone

Here I am sharing another inspiration for the Pink Gem Etsy Shop 



The Image I am using this time is called Spooky Chloe

I have made a Halloween Lollipop.  

I used GoKreate Circe Dies to cut the shape and edged it with White Nottingham Gathered Lace.  I added the straw and attached a Silver Spider Charm to some Twine and hand tied a bow.  To finish I added a Purple Die Cut Spider and some black Pearl Gems.

Santa's Gifts

Hi Everyone

This is my second post today showcasing another new release from Digi Doodle Studios 


I so love colouring Santa's and this one is particularly CUTE

He is called Santa's Gifts and I have coloured him with Copics, ProMarkers and a White Gelly Roll Pen.

I made this card ready for our youngest Son.  The image is just prefect for him and this card needed no frills so I printed it quite large so it would take up alot of the card front.

I added some Diamond Sparkles to the furry bits.

Witchy Shoes

Hi Everyone

Its such an exciting day for me.  Digi Doodle Studios did a new release on 6th October and the team have been showcasing them daily.  It feels like its taken forever to get around to my turn lol.  

I love all the new releases and I had trouble deciding which one to work with so I went for two (the other is in a separate post today!)  

You can find all the new releases and the other fabulous images in the store HERE 


This one is called Witchy Shoes and I fell in love with this.  I usually colour up people/animals and this was a pleasant change as there was no skin, hair or fur to colour!  I had such fun with the tights!

I used Copics to colour this up and added sparkle to the star wreath at the top using a Clear Star Gelly Roll Pen.  I hope that you can see this in the close up photo.  I used Memento Inks to go round the image this was a mix of Grey and Yellow to take off the white around the image!

The card blank is a 7" Square and I used black shimmer card and yellow bazzill as the frame layers.  The spotty paper is a digital download which I bought a few years ago on Etsy.

The "Halloween" and the bows are both Tattered Lace dies which came in the Advent calendar a couple of years ago!

I really did love colouring this one up and think its jumped up to number one on my DDS favourite list.

Unicorn with Rose

Hi Everyone

Just incase you didn't know Polkadoodles have decided to take some of the Pink Gem Images into their store and her is one that is available called Unicorn Rose.

I have coloured the image using Copics and added some Pink Memento ink around her.  The stars I have coloured with a Copic then added a Clear Star Gelly Roll pen over the top so that they sparkle.  I added some twine, a Pink Paper Rose and a Silver Heart Charm which has a Pink stone in the centre.
