PASSION FOR PROMARKERS CHALLENGE #455: SPOTS/STRIPES


Hi There Promarker lovers!


We have a brand new challenge starting at Passion for Promarkers today, with a super prize up for grabs!!

Will be giving our winner a £15 store voucher!

To be eligible to win this awesome prize, all you need to do is use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products (Promarkers, tria, flex, aqua or metallic), and follow the theme.

Jacky has chosen your theme this week: She'd like to see spots and/or stripes on your project.  

To give you al little inspiration to get going with your creation for the week, I've made a card using a sweet little Di's Digi Stamps image, called Kitty In A Teacup, which I've coloured with Promarkers.

I've used the following colours:
Kitty: Walnut, Henna, Cocoa, Cinnamon, Caramel, Sandstone, Oatmeal, Pale Pink on the cheeks
Teacups: Pink: Maroon, Rose Pink, Baby Pink
Purple: Amethyst, Orchid, Lilac
Green: Grass, Bright Green, Leaf Green, Apple
White: Ice Greys 1-3 & blender
Blue: True Blue, Azure, Sky Blue
Yellow: Sunflower, Lemon

My striped paper is from the DCWV Bouquet De Fleur stack, and the floral & dots paper used for the teapot is from the DCWV The Glitter stack.  The teapot was cut from the Everyday Pop Up Cards Cricut cartridge.  I used Ice Grey 1 and the Promarker blender on the edges to give it a bit of dimension.  

My flowers are Little Birdie.  The sentiment is Dovecraft.  The glittery heart is Jolee's.  I've added a wide white ribbon and bow and a few pink gems.
We're all looking forward to see your creativity come to life this week!




Thanks so much for stopping by!

SNOWMAN HUGS


This adorable image is from Digi Doodle Studios.  It's called Snowman Hugs.  I have coloured the image with markers and used Liquid Pearls on their furry bits and as a border around the image.  To give a little extra dimension, I used 2 colours of Liquid Pearls: Platinum for the shadowy areas and White Opal for the brighter areas.

My papers and sentiment are from the KaiserCraft Christmas Wishes pack.  I have distressed all the edges.  I've added a thick ribbon and bow.  The larger glittery snowflake is actually a mini tree decoration, and the smaller ones are Dress It Up buttons.  I've added a few Petite Posies to finish it off.
