Hi Crafters,

The weeks are flying by and it's time to share my Design Team inspiration card with you for the new challenge at Passion For Promarkers.

A nice and easy challenge for you to play with this time as we would like to see...

GEMS / PEARLS

...on your project. Now it can be anything you like eg. scrapbook layout, card, gift bag, 3D project etc. as long as you use your Winsor Newton Promarkers, Flexmarkers, Tria markers, Aqua markers or Metallic markers and follow the theme. Please tell us in your post where you have used your markers to help the DT when we visit to comment thanks.

I have coloured this lovely image creating a Get Well card, I've left the front clean and simple to emphasise the pretty image. There are black dots on the image following the lines of the leaves and I have used these to add my pearls for the theme.

What a drab and dreary weekend we are having, too many grey skies and rain for my liking so lets talk about CHRISTMAS! he, he :)

It's been a busy week for me stocking up my stall leading up to two Farmers Markets/Craft Fairs this weekend so I only managed one card this time. A beautiful, traditional image though and with the sparkly gems in among the wreath it really does look pretty in real life.

Passion For Promarkers Challenge #440 - Buttons and or Bows

Hi Crafters,

Tuesday means the start of a new challenge at Passion For Promarkers.
So here I am with my DT inspiration for you.
Our theme this week is...

BUTTONS and or BOWS

I've decided to make four little notelets using a set of images from our sponsor Digi Stamp Boutique.
I found this teeny, tiny bow die in my stash and just had to use it with these cute images.


Recipe
Images - Kokeshi Dolls - Digi Stamp Boutique
Coloured with Promarkers
Tattered Lace Frame Die
Spellbinders 'Just a Note' Die
Tiny Bow - All Occasions Die

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Crafty Creations - #364 - ATG
As You Like It - Favourite Colouring Medium + Why
( I love using my Promarkers, they are the first alcohol markers I tried when I began crafting and colouring my own images. I find them very easy to blend and use. I have collected quite a lot of colours over the years and so I don't feel the need to change to another brand)
Crafty Catz - #412 ATG
Crafty Calendar Challenge - Buttons and or Bows

Come and join us on the challenge blog HERE, using your Winsor Newton markers and following the theme, any creation is welcome.

See you soon,

Lorraine

Christmas Card Club Challenge #8 Poinsettia/Christmas Greenery

Hi Crafters,

Two weeks have passed by so quickly and I'm here again to share my cards for the Christmas Card Club.
Mary has given us Poinsettias or Christmas Greenery for our theme.



I've created two very different cards this time.
The top one is using a Craft Creations decoupage sheet and some beautiful tartan paper.
The second card uses a Christmas embossing folder from Apple Blossom and TH Tattered Poinsettia Die cut and embossed using pearlescent card which really makes the embossing stand out. I finished off the poinsettia with a Creative Expressions Dazzler.

Challenges I'd like to enter:


Take a peek at the other ladies cards in our group by clicking on the links in the tab at the top of my blog. They always have some fabulous Christmas inspiration on their blogs.
I hope you've had a great weekend, the weather has been a little brighter which always helps.
See you soon,



Lorraine
