It's time for another challenge at Passion for ProMarkers!  And this week, our very talented Elaine has chosen the theme: Add Pearls!

My very theme-focussed mind immediately thought of pearl formation, so I decided to head in this direction!  I have chosen a Magnolia stamp called Pisces Tilda, and coloured her with ProMarkers.  I did her little bubbles with Liquid Pearls, but once it dried, I wished I'd gone with little stick on pearls instead - they'd have been neater.  She has been cut out with a Spellbinders die.  I also used dies for the seahorse (Poppy Crafts), and bubbles (Magnolia Doohickeys).

The clam shell was cut from the Disney Princess Dreams Cricut cartridge.  I cut all the layers from white cardstock, and then coloured it with ProMarkers.  

Onto other goodies:

The pearls pouring from the shell are Tim Holtz; the rest of the sea life, shells and seaweed are Jolee's, Little B and Creative Mates dimensional stickers.  I also added Stickles, a strip of cheese cloth, and more little pearls as bubbles, as well as 3 Prima resin shells.

My paper is from the Bo Bunny Down by the Sea collection.

This is the first time I've made a card using this fold.  My sister recently did one, and I loved it so much, I thought I had to try it!  

Well, I hope I've inspired you to get crafting with your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products, and your pearls!  

This week our prize is sponsored by Uniko Stamps, who are offering our winner 1 stamp set from what they have in stock, and they have a lot to choose from!  So head on over to their shop to see what's available, then get your entry in!  Don't forget to check out what the rest of the Design Team have created to inspire you this week!
