***Exciting Promarker News***

Just HAD to tell you before I burst .................... from next week I will have Promarkers and Tria markers available to buy from my website!!

To start with there will be a minimum order of £10 but U may well remove this in the future once I start getting regular orders. Standard P&P charge should be £1.50 for up to 5 pens and £2.50 over that.

Single Promarkers will be £1.50 and the 5 pen packs will be £7 - other sets and prices are available on request.

It's a bit like buses ......

Can't be bothered making a card for ages and then two come along at once lol!

After making the Passion for Promarkers challenge card with the Penny Black image I decided I NEEDED to use the Moss Green on this lovely Willow stamp from Whiff of Joy so I included a smattering of Poppy on the image as well and I'm really pleased with the result. It's the first time I've tried shading blue jeans and I'm quite happy with the way they've turned out.

I used
layers of Moss Green for Willow's jumper,
Poppy for the mug of hot chocolate, her socks and the decorations on her jeans
Royal Blue with Indigo Blue shading for her jeans
Ivory with Blush shading for the skin tones
and Gold, Yellow and Canary for her hair

Another challenge card

Today is the first day in a while that I've FELT like crafting, the weather has freshened a bit and I'm feeling altogether more human. The sunburn I got from the school fete on Friday is finally feeling better (tho I still look like I have leperosy or something coz I'm peeling SOOOOOOO much) and I'm on a high after I found out that the fete raised over £1500!!!

Anyway, I digress ...... I have made this card for the Papertake Weekly Challenge sketch and the Passion for Promarkers Challenge colour combination of Poppy and Moss Green.

I used a Penny Black image, and used the Moss Green and Poppy promarkers for the girls clothes, satin, cinnamon and dusky pink for the cake, cinnamon, cocoa and henna for the hair and ivory and blush for the skin. The paper and vellum came from my old stash and the ribbons were from my christmas wrappings box.
