PatchWork Polly's friend Chloe'- Jayne Nestorenko Launch today

Here is Chloe' one of the friends of Polly, the new collection launching today on Create & Craft by the lovely Jayne Nestorenko.
Here I thought i'd show ho easy they are to completely change by the colours and the medium you use.

Here is Chloe' using lots of the stamps from her set and Derwent watercolour pencil and Pinflair gel to attach to the card. This is a large 8x8 sq card

For complete contrast, this is Chloe' ag
ain, but this time i used Copic pens, this makes her more ' manga' looking and a very bright and vibrant card.

An here again Chloe' is coloured with watercolour pencils but using the blue and lemon yellow gives a whole different feel to the card.
