Passion for promarkers #19 – DT card

PFP challenge 19 - cool aqua & apricot   flowers

PFP challenge 19 - cool aqua & apricot   flowers (close up)

Happy Tuesday and welcome to a brand new challenge over at passion for promarkers.  This week’s challenge has been set by our new guest designer Sam and the colour combo she would like you to use is cool aqua and apricot but with a twist of making your own flowers (not too difficult for most of us!).  Now I must let you into a small secret when I made my card (originally it had a boy image) Gina kindly pointed out to me that I had forgotten to add flowers (d’oh) so I had to re-do the image and girl it up a bit!!  Now for my second try I used a TGF miss anya image and coloured her with the following promarkers:

Dress, bows in hair and shoes – cool aqua & duck egg

Hair and trim on dress – apricot & honeycomb

Skin – ivory & blush

Socks – ice grey 1

outline – cool grey 1

White gel pen for highlights

The papers and ribbon are all SU and the sentiment is elusive images.  The flowers are all made with EK success retro flower punches and the adhesive pearl is kanban. 

Our sponsor this week is craft obsessions and the lucky winner will receive a gorgeous martha stewart cosmos paper punch worth £10.50.  Also I thought you might like to know that they have a special offer on promarkers at the moment at £1.50 each but only for a limited time, so why not pop over and check them out!

I’m sure we’ll see some wonderful creations this week, as we all love our flowers so much, don’t forget to use the challenge colours as well though – cool aqua and apricot.  Please check out the DT cards, as they are stunning, as usual.  I look forward to visiting all your blogs this week.  Thanks for stopping by.
