Good morning dear friends. I hope that you are all well this morning and that Monday was good to you! As I mentioned it was my son’s birthday so we had pizza delivered and we all sat together munching our food and watching a film – which was really nice. My boys are definitely not my babies anymore and there won’t be many more birthdays left like this one I don’t think *sob*.
Anyway onto the reason you are here. It’s Tuesday so that means we have a brand new challenge for you over at passion for promarkers challenge. This week the lovely Tracy has set the theme and she has chosen to give us a sketch to use. You can rotate the sketch and make minor alterations but we must recognise the original sketch. Don’t forget you must use your Letraset pens (i.e. promarkers, flex markers, tria markers or aqua markers) to qualify for our prize draw. Here is my card using Tracy’s sketch:
and here is Tracy’s fantastic sketch:
I decided to use the sketch to make a Christmas card for my youngest son and I used a freebie image from Pollycraft called ‘Casper silvermist – too cool for Christmas’ and coloured him with flex markers and promarkers. The gorgeously stunning papers are bo bunny from the “snowfall collection” and the plain card is papermania from the ‘textured cardstock’ pack. I kept the card fairly simple and just added some twine, snowflakes and pearls. The sentiment was created on the pc.
Our sponsor this week is Sugar Nellie Stamps and the prize is yet to be confirmed.
The rest of the design team have created amazing samples as always, so please pop over to the challenge blog to be inspired. We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.
