This week our theme over at passion for promarkers challenge has been chosen by Gina and she would like us to ‘use 2 images on our projects’. I decided to make a 6x6 gatefold card, after I had seen one on Kellie Winnell’s blog (her friend Lauren had a tutorial on her blog and you can check it out here). For my card I used two new images from DigiStamp Boutique from the ‘cute japanese characters’ set and the two I have used are ‘Kishi’ and ‘Sachi’. The set is currently on special offer (for three images) so pop over to DSB to check them out. I coloured the images with the following promarkers:
Sachi (green image) – pastel green but the colour was too strong so I used the blender to ‘bleach out some of the colour and added pastel blue over the top and blended again. Marsh green for the flowers.
Kishi (yellow image) – tulip yellow but again it was too bright so blended out the colour and added meadow green over the top and blended a little more.
Skin – ivory, blush and pastel pink
I used cool grey 1 for the outline this time as my ice grey 1 is running out :)
The papers are BG from my new kioshi paper pad and the plain card is bazzill bling (gorgeous but really difficult to photograph due to the shimmer). I used my new MS border punch for the strips and the sentiment is by pink gem designs, which I cut out with my circle nesties. The ribbon is from my stash. I also added some matching paper and another Kishi image to the inside of my card and cut out the largest circle nestie to be able to write my message.
Our sponsor this week is Letraset and one lucky winner will receive a 5 pack of promarkers.
Also we have two new team members joining us today Emma and Tracy. You may remember they were GDT with us in February. I hope you will pop over and leave them a welcome comment. Emma and Tracy are also offering a prize to celebrate their arrival on the team – each will choose one winner of a Letraset rubber stamping kit – so another good reason to enter the challenge this week.
I hope you will have a chance to enter our challenge this week and look forward to seeing what you create.
My card also fits in with the following challenges:
Creative inspirations challenge – sketch
Stamptacular challenge – flower power & bright colours
Simple doodles challenge – add some layers
Quirky crafts challenge – flowers
