Passion for promarkers #126–DT card

Good morning dear friends.   I hope you all had a fantastic Monday.  Winter is definitely here – it was very chilly and it stayed really dark and dreary here all day – me not like!! 

It’s time for a brand new challenge over at passion for promarkers challenge.  The lovely Lisa has set the theme and she has chosen “white on white”.  I really love the look of these type of cards but unfortunately they are a nightmare to photograph – and you know my photography skills are not the best anyway lol!  Here is my card:

PFP challenge 126 - WOW

Sadly my husband’s auntie passed away last week so I made this card to send to his uncle and cousin.  I know it is a bit girly but I thought it would be ok as his cousin (a woman) will be receiving it too but I chose the colour blue to add a bit of “maleness” to it!  The image is from DigiStamp Boutique and is called “quirky flowers” but I don’t think it’s still available as I couldn’t find it in the shop.  I coloured the image with promarkers and used 3 different embossing folders for the background.  I went a bit mad with the stickles but I think it looks ok.  I meant to add a few pearls but I forgot after waiting what seemed like ages for the stickles to dry!!

Our sponsor this week is DigiStamp Boutique and Sally-Ann is offering our lucky winner the choice of 6 digi images from her store.

I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN! I photographed a few black and red cards lately and had a heck of a time with them.

In the end you photo is fab. I adore the embossed background. My mind thinks you must have taken scissors to your folders and cut them to bits. Just can't figure our how you did this, it doesn't look like cut strips of DP.

Thanks for joining the Little Miss Muffet Stamps - Simplicity challenge.
