Passion for Promarkers #16 – DT card

PFP challenge 16 - sandstone & blue pearl

PFP challenge 16 - sandstone & blue pearl (close up)

This week’s challenge at Passion for Promarkers is ‘sandstone and blue pearl’ and has been chosen by our guest designer Caroline.  We are lucky to be sponsored this week by Sally-Ann at DigiStamp Boutique and the DT were able to choose one of her fab digi images to use on our samples. 

I decided to use a new image, which has just been launched, called ‘Becky’.  There are three different images available individually as well as in a set and the set is the current ‘special offer of the month’ – check out the blog for more details.  I coloured the image with the following promarkers:

Hair and trousers – sandstone

Top, bows in hair and flowers – blue pearl

Grass and leaves – meadow green & apple

Skin – ivory, blush and pastel pink

Butterfly and flower centres – lemon

I also used a white gel pen for highlights and added stickles to the butterfly and flower centres.

The blue paper is doodlebug and the brown paper is SU.  I used my martha stewart doily lace punch on the edge of the image panel and the martha stewart embossed zigzag punch on the edge of the brown paper.   The flowers were cut with my x-cut punch and the ric-rac ribbon is from my stash.  The sentiment is craftwork cards and was cut out with my SU oval punches.  The adhesive pearls are kaisercraft.  I look forward to visiting all your blogs and can’t wait to see your gorgeous creations.  Thanks for stopping by today.

Hi Denise! I love these colours together, and the image you've chosen is really sweet! Don't worry about the card being late, you really don't have to go to any trouble. You know, there comes a point where you stop being excited for your birthday, and I've definately passed that point! Hugs, Shelly x
