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.
