Passion for Promarkers – Apricot and Cool Aqua

It’s the turn of one of our lovely new Guest Designers, Sam, to choose the colours for this week’s challenge at Passion for Promarkers, and she has chosen ‘Apricot and Cool Aqua’.  The other compulsory requirement is that you must make your own flowers to decorate your card.

Our sponsors this week are Craft Obsessions, who are giving a fab Martha Stewart ‘Cosmos’ punch to our lucky winner. PfP Cosmos Punch

I have used a gorgeous digital download  from Charmed Cards and Craft for my image, and I have coloured her with Promarkers in the required colours.  The colouring recipe can be found beneath the card.  The sentiment is also from the same download package. The papers that I used are by Fancy Pants, and the cardstock is ‘Cameo Coral’ by Stampin’ Up. My flowers were punched from Retro Flower punches by EK Success, in two sizes, and a paper rose was added to the centre of each flower. I added crystal glitter to the fairy’s wings and to the petals of the flowers for a touch of sparkle.

Passion for Promarkers – Marine and Emerald

Emerald and Marine are the colours to use for this week’s challenge at Passion for Promarkers, and there is an added element in that you must make anything but a card!  Our sponsors this week are Yellow Moon, who are awarding our winner a gift voucher for £10 to spend in their online shop.

I decided to make a door hanger for my project. The base is made from pre-cut chipboard, which I bought on Ebay.  I painted the sides with a dark emerald acrylic paint, and covered the front and back with papers by K & Co. My image, which is a stamp designed by the very talented Elisabeth Bell, was mounted onto a scalloped oval in Bazzill ‘Swiss Dot’ cardstock and fixed to the covered door hanger.  I then added the flowers, the swirls, which were also punched out from the same Bazzill card, and the grosgrain ribbon bow. I didn’t have brads in the right shade, so I coloured the gems in the centre of the flowers with the Marine Promarker so that they would match the image and papers.  The name was printed on the computer, and mounted onto a scalloped oval punched from a Stampin’ Up punch. Please scroll down to see my Promarker colouring recipe for the image.

Passion for Promarkers – Glitzy and Girly

This week, Caryn has given you a free choice of Promarker colours, but would like you to use the theme ‘Glittery and Girly’ for your card. So, what better excuse do you need to get out your sparkly bits and have fun with the challenge?

The Passion for Promarker Challenge is sponsored by The Secret Crafter this week, and they are offering our winner a fab prize of a set of six Promarkers.

Here is my card, and as you can see I’ve used one of the very girly Anya stamps for my image. Scroll to below the card for the colouring recipe.  The DP that I used are from Crafts-Too, the flowers are by Prima, cardstock by American Crafts, and the ribbon is from my stash.  Although it’s quite hard to see in the photo, I’ve added some glitzy sparkle to Miss Anya’s top and hairband, some on the flowers on the backing paper, and on the Prima hydrangea flowers.  The sentiment is a stamp by Elzybells.
