Passion for promarkers #119–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  I hope you are looking forward to the mini heat-wave they’re predicting for the rest of this week – won’t it make such a difference to have some dry and sunny days after all the rain we’ve had over the last few weeks.  It’s a shame it will only be for a few days though! 

I’m here this morning with my DT card for this week’s passion for promarkers challenge and this week the lovely Tracy has set the theme and she has chosen “planes, trains and automobiles”.  Quite a straight forward theme this week, just include one of those modes of transport on your cards.  Don’t forget to be eligible for our prize draw you must use your promarkers, aqua markers, tria markers or flex markers. 

I decided to make an easel card this week, as I don’t seem to have made one for such a long time.  However when it came time to photograph it I realised why lol!!  Why are they so difficult to get a good photo of?  Anyway here is my card:

PFP challenge 119 - planes, trains and automobiles

I have used a cute image from DigiStamp Boutique called “Zoe driving” and coloured her with a mix of promarkers and flex markers.  The papers are first edition from the ‘summer breeze’ paper pad and the gorgeous flowers were a pressie from my lovely crafty friend Donna

Our sponsor this week is Letraset and the lucky winner will receive one of their promarker stamping kits.

On the subject of Letraset, we have been asked to inform you that the lighter flex markers may appear to be faulty (and seem to have no colour ) but they need to be primed before use so that the colour flows through to the nib.  You can read all about it on the Letraset site here.

The rest of the design team have created amazing samples to inspire you, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.  We really appreciate the lovely comments you leave for us.
