Passion for Promarkers week #14 – DT card

PFP challenge 14 - all the purples

PFP challenge 14 - all the purples (close up)

This week’s challenge over at passion for promarkers is ‘a passion for purple’ and was chosen by the lovely Sue.  Now originally we planned for you to use all the purples i.e. lilac, lavender, amethyst and aubergine, but we appreciate that some of you may not have all four colours.  So we have decided you can choose any two from the four purples to use as your predominant colours on your image (of course if you do have all four purples we would love you to use them). 

For my card I used a GG image kindly sent to me by Gina and coloured her with the following promarkers:

Hair – cinnamon, cocoa and shale

Skin – Ivory and blush

Dress – lilac and amethyst

Tights – lavender and lilac

Flowers in hair and on dress – aubergine

I added shading around the image with cool grey 1 and a white gel pen for highlights. 

The gorgeous paper is from a digital download set called ‘Milly’s happiness’ which I won some time ago as blog candy (I’ve done a quick search and found it here if you want to see it properly) and the plain cs is from the papermill shop.  I used my nesties to cut out the image and for the mat behind it and cut flowers with my medium ek success retro flower punch.  The adhesive stones are PM and the ribbon is from my stash.  The sentiment was created on the pc and I used my SU oval punches to cut it out.  A very simple layout but the paper is so gorgeous I didn’t want to hide it. 

Our sponsor this week is Letraset (how fabulous) and one lucky person will win a 5 pack of promarkers. 


I can’t wait to see all your lovely creations and look forward to visiting all your blogs.  Thanks for stopping by today.
