Just the two of us

Here is my card for the latest challenge on Cute Card Thursday. The theme is ‘The Two of Us’, and I thought the Hanglar & Stanglar couple was perfect to use for this challenge. This is also my first attempt at using my new Pro-Markers. I found the pens wonderful to use, but it does take some practice to master the blending effect. I don’t think I will totally abandon my beloved pencils for the markers, but they are an alternative if I should want a different effect, or just a change from Prismas.

Materials used:
Basic Grey Papers
Pro-Markers from Letraset
Quickutz Revolution die – Victorian Flourish

    First time I’ve visited your blog Maria, but it certainly won’t be the last.

    Love all your artwork, especially as I’m not too good at cute and whimsical.
