There's a great new challenge at Passion for Promarkers and this week and our lovely Lorraine has chosen a nice and easy theme - 'Something beginning with L'

The Paper Shelter

I've used Pepe L'Souris on my card and he's such a cute little image!  I've used my promarkers to colour him in and added a bit of glossy accents to his nose!  
I used a layout from a recent workshop and punched out some flowers in the same backing papers.  I've added a mixture of pearls and coloured gems as well as a cute little polka dot button!  

My card has L for a lace diecut, L for lunch and L for leaves!
So why not join in with this week's challenge and be in with a chance of winning this great prize.  Remember you can enter using any type of creation but as always to be eligible for the prize draw you must use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products.

I've made a Welsh Birthday card for my brother this week and the image has been coloured with my promarkers.
I added some glossy accents to make the bottle shine and the papers are from 'The Works'.  I added some twine and a wooden star as a finishing touch!  Because I had so many stars on the card, the film had to be 'A Star is Born'!!  The best film I've seen for a long time - absolutely fantastic!

Masculine Cards

Hi crafters,
It's time for a brand new challenge at Passion for Promarkers and our lovely Kitty has given us the fab theme of 'Masculine Cards'.
We are kindly sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps and they are offering the lucky winner a $12.00 gift code to use in their online store.  They have some amazing images and the design team have all used one of their images on their cards this week so make sure you check out their blogs!

Bugaboo

I've used one of their images called ' Giraffe Blocks' on my card and this is a birthday card I've made for my hubby!
I've created the background using some distress inks and a stencil that was a freebie in a magazine this month,  I couldn't find the right papers so I thought I'd make my own giraffy looking background!!  I did some doodling in the corners to match those on the images and heat embossed the sentiment in white.  I added a wooden heart button just to finish it off!
We all struggle with cards for the men in our lives so why not use this challenge as a good way of making some masculine cards and be in with a chance of winning this amazing prize,
I look forward to seeing some of your fab creations!
Hugs, Karen xx

Add a Sentiment

Hi crafters,
Happy New Year to you all! 
Well here we are in 2019 and it's time for a brand new challenge at Passion for Promarkers. 
I've chosen the theme this week and it's a nice and easy one to start us off in the new year - "Add a sentiment".
We are kindly sponsored by Cowling & Wilcox and they are offering the lucky winner a pack of  6 Promarkers in Pastel Tones.

Cowling & Wilcox logo

I made a Welsh Birthday card for my Mother-in-Law and added the sentiment to a banner die.  I coloured the butterfly background with my promarkers to match the papers and added a butterfly die over the top.

I used a text stamp for the circle background and used an embossing folder on the white card.  Some coordinating flowers and a button finished off the card.
I'm looking forward to getting crafty again now that the festivities are almost over and I hope that you can find time to enter this fab challenge.
I look forward to seeing some of your gorgeous creations.
Hugs, Karen xx

Their images are amazing and I've used one of their digis entitled 'Autumn Breeze'.  She's absolutely gorgeous and I've used my promarkers to colour her in. I die cut all the leaves in white card and used my distress inks to give them the autumnal colours!  I added some cones I collected on my walk last week and some glitter and pearls were the finishing touch!

It would be great if you could join in with this week's challenge.  Remember you can enter using any type of creation but as always to be eligible for the prize draw you must use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products (promarkers, flex markers, tria markers, aqua markers or metallic markers) and of course, follow the theme.
