Polkadoodle Challenge Week 16 - Monochromatic

Another Friday already? Where did the week go! Because it is Friday it is another Polkadoodle challenge and this week the theme has been set by the lovely Nettie, who has asked for:


Which simply is shades of one colour. Now I've made these windmills which if you look closely are all shades of one colour, I've just made them in four different colours!

The papers have been printed double sided and I've used a windmill template to cut the shapes out. And the papers are from the brand new cd from Polkadoodles - All Around and Everywhere - which is launched today at 10am on Create and Craft (so you'll get to see these windmills!)

The windmills were pretty easy to make especially as the large brads holds them together.

And to keep the balance (they had a tendency to twist round) so you see the front, I've glued a button to the reverse of the windmill which also hides the stick a little too. Notice that the glue wasn't dry when I took the photo!
Hope you are able to join in with our challenge - the deadline is Sunday 2 May at 12noon GMT and you can enter your Polkadoodle creation into 9 other challenges. If you are unable to meet these 'rules' then we cannot consider your entry for a top three blinkie or as a winner of the challenge.
Good luck!
