This week’s challenge over at Passion for Promarkers is to use the colours Rose Pink and Lime and was chosen by the lovely Ida and we are lucky to be sponsored by Papirloftet a craft store based in Norway. They do the most gorgeous embellishments (flowers, ribbon, lace etc) as well as papers and all the usual crafty stuff. All of the DT were sent a goodie bag with some of their products to use on our cards. I decided to use as much as I could and I only added the image (and of course promarkers to colour it), the tiny brad to hold the charm and the stamps away journalling stamp I used on the inside, everything else was provided by Papirloftet. I used an image kindly sent to me by Gina (I’m using them up lol!) and coloured it with the following promarkers:
Hair – Sandstone, cinnamon and cocoa
Jacket & boots – Rose pink and blender
Skirt, umbrella & buttons – lime green and blender
Skin – Ivory and blush
Socks – Meadow green, blender and cool grey 1
For the outline I used cool grey 1 and I added highlights to the hair with a white gel pen.
I don’t very often make gatefold cards but as one was provided I decided to use it and I’m really happy with the way it turned out – not my usual style (no patterned paper – OMG) but good nonetheless. One thing I did forget to do was cover the back of my image with a plain piece of card to cover the colouring and also the back of the brad!
Please don’t forget to check out all the DT cards as they are stunning. The lucky person chosen this week will win a gorgeous pack of goodies from Papirloftet (I’m so jealous, look at those flowers – yum!).
We hope you can find the time to enter our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing all your gorgeous creations. Thanks for stopping by today.
