Monochrome Challenge

Hi crafters,
There's a brand new challenge at Passion for Promarkers starting today.  It's been chosen by our lovely Kitty and the theme for this week is 'Monochrome'.
We are kindly sponsored by Ppinkydolls and they are offering the lucky winner a choice of 3 digis from the online store.  All the images there are amazing and great fun to colour in.

We were lucky enough to have an image to play with and I chose this gorgeous digi called 'Abi's Love'.  I chose to use cream as my monochrome colour which meant keeping the colouring as simple as possible.  I actually enjoyed keeping it as one main colour and will definitely use this theme again!
The papers are all from my stash and I punched some flowers out of these papers as well.  The sentiment stamp came from a magazine freebie and I used a brown ink pad to keep everything in the same tone.  I embossed the cream layer and all the edges have been inked with 'Antique Linen' Distress Ink.  Some cream organza ribbon and a couple of small wooden hearts were the finishing touches to the card as well as a few pearls here and there!!

So why not join in with this nice and easy challenge this week.  Remember, you can enter using any type of creation, it doesn't have to be a card.  To be eligible for the prize draw, you must use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products (promarkers, flex markers etc) and of course, follow the theme.  Please also say which products you have used on your creation,
I look forward to visiting your blogs to see all your lovely creations!
Hugs, Karen xx

Just add Glitter!

Hi crafters,
It's my turn to host this week's challenge at Passion for Promarkers and I've chosen a nice and easy theme - 'Just add glitter'.
We are kindly sponsored by The Paper Shelter this week and they are offering the lucky winner a $10.00 voucher to spend in their online store.
The Paper Shelter
Their images are all gorgeous and we were lucky enough to have an image to use on our cards for this challenge,

The image I've used is called 'Playing under the Sea' and I really enjoyed colouring this one.  I've used my promarkers as always and just added some glitter - of course!!
I found some shells to add to my card which I collected many years ago on my honeymoon (knew they would come in handy one day!!!)   I don't know if you can see it but I've also added some cream spider's web (I think that's what it's called) just to give some texture to the card.  Some WOC flowers and a sentiment finished off the card.
Here's a side image of my card so that you can see the glitter!

Add Pearls

Hi crafters,
We're flying through the year now aren't we and it's time for another new challenge at Passion for Promarkers.  This week's challenge has been chosen by our lovely Elaine and it's 'Add Pearls' - a nice and easy challenge!  I think I probably add pearls to every card I make!!
We are kindly sponsored by Uniko Stamps this week and they are offering the lucky winner 1 stamp set (in stock).

I've made a Graduation card for my friend's daughter and I've used this gorgeous image from Saturated Canary called 'Grad Girl'.  I decided on a simple gold and black colour scheme and added a lot of black glitter to the mortarboard hat (like you do!)!  

I embossed one of the background layers and added a scroll tied with black ribbon to match the image!  I also added a tassel which I attached with a brad to match the tassel on the mortarboard!!  I added a few pearls here and there (of course) and found some gold ribbon as the finishing touch.

So why not join in with this week's great challenge!  You can enter using any type of creation, it doesn't have to be a card.  Just remember to use your Winsor & Newton products to be eligible for the prize draw.
I look forward to seeing your lovely creations.

We were lucky enough to have an image to play with and I've used Candy Floss Crew Quentin on my card this week.  He was great to colour in and I was very brave and used black for the first time ever!! The papers are from Lisa's CD Boys2Men and they were a perfect match with the image on his jumper!!

I added some black ribbon, twine and some card candy and a die cut border.  The sentiment is also from the CD and I coloured it to match my card colours!

So why not join in with this week's challenge.  Remember you can enter using any type of creation, it doesn't have to be a card.  To be eligible for the prize, make sure you use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products and of course, follow the theme.

Their images are fab and we were lucky enough to choose an image to use on our cards this week. I've made a 50th Birthday card for my cousin and added a Welsh Happy Birthday wish! I've used Tulip Hedgie and I absolutely loved colouring this one in!  I've used my promarkers and added a little bit of white gel pen to add dots to the bow!
I then found some dotty ribbon to match and some WOC flowers in similar colours.  I hope she likes it anyway!
So why not join in with this week's challenge - we all add a sentiment to our cards and we'd love to see your creations.  Don't forget to use your Winsor & Newton products (formerly Letraset)  and follow this week's theme.

Challenge 397

Hi crafters,
There's a great new challenge today over at Passion for Promarkers and this week, our lovely Nat has chosen the theme 'Make a kinetic card'.
We are kindly sponsored by All Dressed Up stamps and they are offering the lucky winner a choice of 2 digis from their online store.
                                                 All Dressed Up stamps
They have some gorgeous images available and I've used one of them on my card this week.
It's called 'Fairy Swing' and I really enjoyed colouring this one!
 I decided to make a 'Tent Fold' card to fit the theme of a kinetic card as I thought it would be perfect for the image.  I wanted to make it look as though she was swinging happily from the branch!! I coloured her with my promarkers and added a little glitter here and there.  I embossed the top layer and added some punched flowers to the little picket fence (still love this little die!).
Here a side view of the card so that you can see the tent fold style - it folds flat so that it will fit nicely in a box.
I even added a couple of clouds to add to the little scene (I blame Lisa for this hee hee!),
So why not join in with this week's challenge and make a card with a different fold or movement.
You can enter using any type of creation - it doesn't have to be a card,  As always, you must use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products and of course follow the theme.
I look forward to seeing your entries and good luck!
Hugs, Karen xx
