PASSION FOR PROMARKERS CHALLENGE #463: INCLUDE A NUMBER


Hi There Promarkers Lovers!


We have another super fun challenge starting at Passion for Promarkers today.  Lorraine has chosen your theme, and she would like you to include a number in your project this week.

We have TWO great prizes up for grabs this week!!

will be giving away two 6 packs of Promarkers!  One in Neutral Tones, and one in Vibrant Tones!

Normally I would lean toward a child's card for this theme, but my husband's birthday is coming up, and it seemed the perfect opportunity to use this adorable image I bought from Alicia Bel, with him in mind.  It's called With Love, and I have coloured it with the following Promarkers:

Hair: Black; Cool Greys 3-5
Skin: Blush; Sunkissed Pink; Coral; Cinnamon; Pale Pink
Eyes: China Blue; Sky Blue; Lime Green
Red: Burgundy; Cardinal Red; Ruby; Antique Pink

I have fussy cut the image and she's mounted on puffy pads, as are the sentiment and number.  I have cut the number, sentiment and heart swirl on my Cameo.  I have given the hearts on the swirl a bit of dimension with my Burgundy Promarker and white gel pen.

My paper is from one of my oldest and favourite paper packs: DCWV The Glitter Stack.

I hope you'll play along with us this week!  Remember to use your Winsor & Newton products (Promarkers, Flex markers, Aqua markers; Tria markers or Metallic markers) and follow the theme!  You don't even have to make a card!  Any project is fine.  For a few more ideas, just click on our banner above.





Looking forward to seeing what you come up with this week!!

DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY CHALLENGE #152: ANYTHING GOES + FLOWER FRENZY


Hi There Crafters!

I have a bit of mid-month inspiration for you today, and a reminder to get your entry in for a chance to win a great prize.  Our theme is ANYTHING GOES, but if you feel like playing along with our twist for the month, we'd like to see your FLOWER FRENZY!


I have two images to show you today.  Spring Fairy, and Toadstool Thicket.  

This is what Toadstool Thicket looks like on it's own:

I layered the image up 8 times to create a full fairy garden background for my fairy, and then coloured up everything with markers.  I've added a few flowers in the corners.  They're from 49 and Market, and Petaloo.

I have a few close-up shots to show you, but first, here are a few important links for you:




This was my coloured image before I trimmed it down and made the card:

PASSION FOR PROMARKERS CHALLENGE #461: YOUR FAVOURITE COLOUR COMBO


Good Morning ProMarker lovers!


We have a fantastic prize up for grabs at Passion for Promarkers this week!

will be giving our lucky winner 2 digi images of their choice!

I have chosen your theme for the week.  I'd like you to use your 
FAVOURITE COLOUR COMBO

My favourite colour is purple and one my favourite combos is purple & black.

This week I got to use a really fun image from our fantastic sponsor.  The image is called A Dunderton Abroad and I've coloured the image with Promarkers.  I also drew in the background for him.

Skin: Blush; Sunkissed Pink; Coral; Cinnamon
Moustache: Warm Greys 2 - 5
Black: Cool Greys 3 - 5; Black
Silver: Cool Greys 1 - 3
Bandanna & Shorts: Lilac; Violet; Aubergine
Purple: Orchid; Amethyst; Purple
Pink: Cocktail Pink; Carmine; Magenta
Suitcase Label: Blue Pearl; Pastel Blue
Shirt Leaves: Leaf Green; Grass; Pine
Sky: Sky Blue
Tree: Leaf Green; Grass Pine; Forest Green; Lush Green; Emerald; Holly; Sandstone; Caramel; Cocoa; Henna

So I decided to make my first Magic Slider Card.  I'm not sure I'll ever attempt another one, as it took me two full days and I'm not entirely thrilled with the results.  Here's the video tutorial I used, if you're interested.  I'm sure my frustration came from deciding I was going to have the slider come out sideways, which meant the longest side of my image.  I ended up having to add two brads to the original eyelet to pull the tag out, to keep the acetate in place.

I also needed to source acetate specifically for use with inkjet printers, which proved to be difficult and expensive!

My paper is from the Heartfelt Creations Woodsy Wonderland collection.  The sentiments are freebie clear stamps that came with a craft magazine.  The travel goodies are Little B.  I've also used a strip of dotted washi tape on the edge of the slider pocket and added some pearls.




Unfortunately I didn't take a pic of the image before I added the acetate, so these are all through the acetate.

Well, I hope you'll join us this week, showing us YOUR favourite colour combo!  

Remember to use your Winsor & Newton products (Promarkers; flex markers; tria markers; aqua markers or metallic markers) and we'd love you to mention which you've used.  

You can use the logos above to head back to the challenge to see what the rest of the team have created to inspire you this week, or to visit our generous sponsor.
