Entry number two...................

Here is my second entry for Passion for ProMarkers. I just got the Hunky Dory Kinetic card blanks in my shop, so thought it would be good to try one out.
The theme of "Anything Goes" put me in mind of the song "In olden days a glimpse of stocking was looked on as something shocking, now heaven knows, anything goes", so that was my inspiration for this card. The backing paper was Monochromatic, but I coloured all the white flowers in with Rose Pink ProMarker to match her clothes.
These cards are a little difficult to photograph, my my husband has done his best!

I think I am going to be a bit greedy...................

Passion for ProMarkers is having a birthday this week, and have mega prizes up for grabs in the challenge, which is "Anything Goes". The first prize is a complete (yes, complete) set of ProMarkers, and I really shouldn't expect to win that, as I won it last time, but the other prizes are just as brilliant!
This is my first entry - I think I am doing two - and she is just Gorjuss!! The background paper is from My Craft Studio Walk in Wonderland, which I printed twice, once with and once without Gorjuss, and cut out the bubble with her on to decoupage. I put two strips of narrow DST following the lines on the paper, then sprinkled Glamour Dust over it. She, of course, is coloured with ProMarkers, as is the gold brad in the middle of the flower.

I've been bullied!!!!!!

I have had a set of Moon Shadow Inks for about 3 years and never used them, and just recently Vix (Vixykins), and Jill (The Stampman) have been nagging me to get them out and USE them!! So I did and this is one of the cards I made.
I made the background using cream card and Violaceous Violet Moon Shadow Ink. Then I printed the gorgeous Butterfly Swirl digi stamp onto the card with my laser printer, and foiled it using toner foil and my laminator.
Next I coloured parts of the image with my beloved ProMarkers, which I also used to colour my clear jewels. Added the flowers, and here she is!!
I have just decided (with the help of Vix) that she would qualify for the Passion for ProMarkers challenge this week, which is Fantasy/Mythology, and I also think she may be OK for Papertake Weekly challenge, which is Say it with Flowers.

I don't like strawberries, but.......................

I couldn't resist joining in the challenge on Passion for ProMarkers this week, which is Strawberries and Cream.
The image is a Strawberry Shortcake colouring page, and I have layered her on a cream mat, then a pink one, and then the background paper. Now, I know that those aren't strawberries, but roses, but the colours went so well, and I couldn't find any paper with strawberries on. I tried my Martha Stewart "Punch around the Page" punches for the first time on the background, and in the corners of the card. The card itself is actually a pale cream, although it is hard to tell from the scan. I must remember not to put lumpy things on cards that need to be scanned - can't get a good scan.
All in all though, I think she is quite cute!!

Another Day Out

Went over to Liverpool today, and went for a wander down to Albert Dock. It was quite cold and blowy, but the sun was shining and it was quite pleasant.
Went round the Dock, then onto the river side (was going to take a picture of Billy Fury's statue - love him - but he was festooned with dying flowers which had been laid on him for his 70th birthday a few weeks ago, so I will do it next time maybe), and round to the Echo Arena. They have moved the giant wheel there from the park where it was before.
Didn't expect to get a go on it (husband doesn't like to pay for things he thinks are a rip off), but it was only £5 each for pensioners (sadly the girl on the ticket booth didn't argue, just believed we were old!), so we went on it. All I can say is "WOW", fabulous, and £10 well spent. Took some pictures, although they are not as good as they could be as they are obviously taken through glass, but not bad just the same.
