Fishing Buddies - LOTV - Passion for Promarkers DT


Good morning and welcome to my new follower. Today is the start of a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers where Lou has given us a sketch to follow.
 A nice easy one.  I have made mine using 'Fishing Buddies' from LOTV.


All layers were straight cut and then rounded off with a corner punch.  The sentiment and papers are all from LOTV too.  A have a tip for anyone looking for sparkly papers where no glitter can rub off. Tesco are selling a range of sticky backed plastic (yes I remember the Blue Peter days :)) in their back to school range, I used the silver one here.  IRL it really does sparkle and is great for layering with.   The ribbon and dazzler are from my stash and the sparkly balls are from WOC.


I added Glamour dust to the falling snow, flower soft to her 'fur' and ice crystals to the snow.  Stickles to the stars, and glossy accents to the ice hole.  She is of course coloured with Triamarkers, Flexmarkers and Promarkers.


The inside does match the front of the card.


We are being sponsored this week by Digi Stamp Boutique who are offering a £10 voucher to spend in store.


We are very lucky to have a second sponsor in Letraset who are offering a prize of a set of 6 Promarkers in pastel tones

All Our Yesterdays - Fay Whittaker - Fussy and Fancy DT

Good morning. Today sees the start of a new challenge at Fussy and Fancy where Beth has chosen the theme 'Lazy Summer Days', and what better than relaxing at the seaside.  But your entry can be of anything ie picnics, bbq's sport etc.  I have used an image from Fay Whittaker that I bought ages ago but thought it was appropriate. It's called 'All Our Yesterdays' and I certainly remember lots of days at the seaside.


The background is from an Adorable's Summer CD and is decoupaged with 3 layers and was pre coloured.  The outer layer is from Nitwits. I fussy cut the lady in the deckchair and the boy.  The lighthouse, bunting and anchor are from Cheery Lynn I think :) The sentiment is a Diesire die. The ribbon is from my stash.


They are coloured with Triamarkers, Flexmarkers and Promarkers.

I cut the bunting twice, the second layer being rainbow mirror board. I also added glossy accents the the sea.

Christmas Visitors - Sheena Douglas - Winter Wonderland DT.

Good morning I am back today with a card for our month long challenge at Winter wonderland, where I am the host.  The theme is 'Christmas Carols/Songs, so that covers just about everything from traditional to modern.  I have used a Sheena Douglas stamp set called 'Christmas Visitors' and my carol is 'The Holly and the Ivy'.


The holly is part of the stamp set, and I think the ivy is from Marianne Designs.  The image is straight cut and mounted onto Tattered Lace squares, I used dark blue glimmer card, red satin card and matt silver mirror card for my layers.  The two snowflake corners are from Wild Rose Studios. Sentiment from LOTV,cut with an EK success punch and an xcut outer layer. The flowers are from WOC and ribbon and gems from my stash.


The background was made using my Ebrush and I covered the image and added snowflakes to the background using Drawing Gum.  I used glossy accents on the ivy, berries, and the birds eye and beak. Some Nuvo glitter on the leaves and finally some stardust stickles to the flowers.


The inside does match the front with the addition of a WRS frame.


As this is a month long challenge we have 4 wonderful sponsors giving very generous prizes.
