Hey, that's not how you're supposed to use that!

Ok, when I saw the theme ~ Use Something NOT for its intended purpose ~ for this week's DT project at Digi Choosday, I went all out to prove you can take Polkadoodles goodies in a very different direction! 

Now, you are saying, "But if you use a digi, don't you have to color it or use a Pre-Colored digi."  I say, "Not if you think outside the arena...I mean "proverbial box" and go with the NOT intended purpose!"  😉

I started with the digi Horse Riding and turned her into a "silhouette stamp."  I used a tag cut to make a stencil for my inking.  Finally, I combined sentiments from two different sets to make the perfect sentiment for my card. 

A little oboe reed thread ~ again not for its intended use ~ and some navy seam binding from sewing stash and my rider is ready to venture off on a 'Beautiful Life!'

This is what I love about Polkadoodles Digital Crafting:  the possibilities to creativity are endless!  You can whip up a card in an instant with PRE-COLORED backgrounds, design sheets, and digis or you can print and then color, paint, ink or decoupage!  You can stay all digital or you can get out all your ribbons, gems, pearls, and fabrics.  Of course, you can combine all the above!  

You can find the beautiful Polkadoodles goodies I used by clicking the links:

'Beautiful' from Lil Miss Sugarpops Quotes/Sentiments
'Life' from Winnie Special Moments Quotes
Background: Distressed Wood
Stamp Digi:  Horse Riding
Mask cut from Winnie in Wonderland Tags

Curious how I made this happen?  Check out the video below!
