Passion for promarkers #37 – DT card

PFP challenge 37 - all creatures great and small

PFP challenge 37 - all creatures great and small (close up)

This week’s challenge over at passion for promarkers has been chosen by the lovely Sarah and she has asked for ‘all creatures great and small’, so grab your animal/insect images and get creating!  You can use any colour promarkers as long as you use the theme. 

For my card I used a yet to be released image from the greeting farm called ‘Oliver’ from the Oliver & Amelia ‘Happy Days’ stamp set.  This set is due for release on March 1st and I for one will be in the queue to get it!!  I was lucky enough to receive this image as a RAK from Tracy from Dies to Die For.  The papers are all BG from the archaic paper pad and the plain brown card is SU (chocolate chip).  The buttons are from my stash and the sentiment is penny black.  I used my rectangle nesties to cut out the image.  The promarkers I used for my card are:

3 dinosaurs – walnut, umber, marsh green and pear green

Clothes and shoes – cornflower, amber, almond, caramel

Skin – ivory, blush and pastel pink

Hair – tan, caramel and cinnamon

Outline and shading – ice grey 1 (although I originally did it with almond but didn’t like it, so went over it with the ice grey 1 lol!).

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


The rest of the team have created lots of gorgeous samples to inspire you so I hope you’ll be able to join in this week.  I look forward to visiting your blogs.  

My card also fits in with the following challenges:

Anyone for anya challenge – sketch

Basic grey challenge – animals

Thanks for stopping by today.
