Passion for promarkers #122–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  I hope you are all well and keeping warm and dry in the windy, wet weather we’re having at the moment.  I got soaked last night just putting my rubbish bags/recycling bins out in readiness for collection today.  I really don’t like the winter and am wishing my life away again until Spring lol! 

Anyway enough of my waffling!!  I’m here this morning to share my DT card for this week’s passion for promarkers challenge.  This week Lisa has set the theme and she has chosen “stars”, which can be on your image, papers or even use star embellishments, we don’t mind as long as we can see one star or more.  I was asked to make a card for a friend’s dad who loves golf, so I thought this challenge would be ideal for a masculine card.  Here is my card:

PFP challenge 122 - stars

PFP challenge 122 - stars (close up)

By the way I now have ink for my printer *yippee* – that was the longest 5 days of my life, although I did enjoy using rubber stamps that I had forgotten about.  I’m back to digi today as I have used an image from DigiStamp Boutique called “golf James” and coloured him with promarkers and flex markers.  The papers are my mind’s eye from the ‘true blue’ paper pad and the kraft card is by elzybells.  I have used gold star brads as I thought they suited the paper better than my usual silver.

Our sponsor this week is Crafter’s Companion and they are offering a fantastic prize of a £20.00 gift voucher to spend in their online store.
