Passion for promarkers #49 – DT card

Hello and welcome to our new challenge over at passion for promarkers challenge.  Our theme this week has been chosen by Michele and she has given us a lovely sketch to use but she also wants us to make our own handmade flowers

Here is Michele’s sketch:

And here is my card:

PFP challenge 49 - sketch & handmade flowers

 PFP challenge 49 - sketch & handmade flowers (close up)

I really loved using Michele’s sketch, cos it’s got lots of layers!!  I promise you IRL the colours aren’t quite so gaudy, but once again my photography skills are useless!!  I decided to make ‘lollipop’ flowers again, as I think they look really cute. 

To colour my image I used the following promarkers:

Dress – lime green, lime zest and rose pink

Tights – lime green and bright green

Shoes and bows in hair – rose pink

Skin – ivory, blush and pastel pink

Hair – Tan and caramel

Shading – cool grey 1

White gel pen for highlights

Our sponsor this week is Letraset and one lucky winner will receive a 5 pack of promarkers.

I hope you will pop over and take a look at the rest of the DT cards, as they are stunning, as always.  I can’t wait to see what you make and look forward to visiting yours blogs. 

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:

The creative cottage challenge – going green (I used the colour green)
