It’s Digi Friday at Passion for Promarkers!

From this Friday our Weekend Workshops will be based on colouring digital images, and each week we’ll be sponsored by a digital company, who’ll be offering a fab prize to our winner of the week, selected at random from all the comments left on the Digi Friday post on the weekend workshop blog.

This week our sponsor is Elizabeth from Soft Pencil, who is offering a prize of $15 to spend at her online shop – so what are you waiting for?!

Each week one of the Design Team will be doing a weekend workshop based on an image from that week’s sponsor, so check out this week’s workshop, where Caryn will be showing you how to colour one of Soft Pencil’s gorgeous images.

We have another colour theme, with a twist, for you this week at Passion for Promarkers.  The chosen colours are Tulip Yellow and Baby Pink, and you must add some element of sewing, whether it’s done on your machine, done by hand, or faux stitches.

Here is my card for this challenge, and as you can see I’ve been playing with my sewing machine! The background paper is by Crafty Individuals, and the image is a Gorjuss Girl, available from Funky Kits.  Scroll down for my colouring recipe.

Promarker Bargain!

A  heads up to all the Promarker fans out there.

Debbi has a complete set of brand new Promarkers, in the original 92 colours, plus 8 desktop organisers (each of which holds 12 markers) for sale. She’s looking for £125, which includes postage by special delivery to the UK. This is at least £30 – 40 less than it would be possible to get them anywhere else, so it sounds like a bargain not to be missed!

Debbi has now sold these – sorry to all who were disappointed.
