Passion for promarkers #99–DT card

Good morning dear friends, I hope your Monday was good and that today turns out to be even better.  I cannot believe how quickly the weeks are flying by – we’re in the second week of May already, although you wouldn’t guess by the freakish weather we’re having at the moment!  This week over at passion for promarkers challenge I had the honour of setting the theme and as it was my son’s 17th birthday on Sunday I thought it would be quite apt to have ‘for a teenager’ as our challenge this week.  You can make anything you like as long as it’s appropriate for a teenage girl or boy.  Don’t forget you must use your promarkers or aqua markers to be eligible for our prize draw.  Here is the card I made for my son:

PFP challenge 99 - for a teenager

PFP challenge 99 - for a teenager (close up)

My son plays drums in two local bands (with some friends from school) so this image from Kenny K is just perfect for him – and I’m pleased to report that it was well received!!  I distressed all the edges to within an inch of their lives and inked the image panel with a cats eye chalk ink pad.  The papers are a bit of a mish mash but the overall result is ok I think.  The music notes were bought from eBay when I first started crafting!!

Our sponsor this week is Joanna Sheen and the lucky winner will receive a £10.00 voucher to spend in her online store.
