Pocket Full of Posies Challenge #5

The theme for the Pocket Full of Posies theme for this fortnight is ‘Winged Things’, and our generous sponsors for this challenge are Whimsy Stamps, who are going to give our lucky winner no less than five gorgeous digital images of their choice from their online shop!

Here is my card, made, of course, with a delightful Whimsy Stamps image. She has been coloured with Promarkers, and the Designer Papers that I used are by Basic Grey.  The cute velvety butterfly is by Flora Doodles, sentiment by Hero Arts, and the rest is from my stash.

 I do hope that you’ll come and play in our latest challenge; I’m sure that you’ll agree that the prize is well worth it!

Passion for Promarkers – Michele’s Sketch

This week’s Passion for Promarkers challenge is to follow Michele’s lovely sketch with an added element, which is to make your own flowers.  Our sponsors for this challenge are Letraset, who are giving our winner a set of five Promarkers.

I used plain off-white flowers, which I painted with pearlised watercolour paints. This has the effect of stiffening the flower and giving it the look of pearly porcelain. I added a pearly brad and a silver spacer to the flower centre for further decoration. The designer papers are by Basic Grey, and the stamp is by Sugar Nellie. Please scroll down to see my Promarker colouring recipe.

Promarkers used:

Skin: Ivory, Blush, Pastel Pink.Hair: Vanilla, Tan, Caramel.

Clothes: Lime Zest, Pear Green, Pale Pink, Dusky Rose, Cardinal Red, Caramel, Cinnamon.

Butterfly and Mushrooms: Tan, Caramel, Cinnamon, Cardinal Red, Almond, Tan.

Our Passion for Promarker challenge this week is to make something for the young ones in our lives. Our sponsors for this challenge are Sugar Nellie, who are giving our winner two of their lovely stamps, ‘Come Fly With Me’ and ‘Perfect Playmates’, as a prize. These adorable stamps can be found on the Funky Kits website, where you can also purchase all the Sugar Nellie range of stamps.

I used another Sugar Nellie design on my card, this time from their ‘Home Grown’ line.  I coloured this little chap to match the  Basic Grey designer papers that I used.  The card stock is by DCWV, and the sentiment stamp is by Stampin’ Up. Please scroll down to see my Promarker colouring recipe.

Passion for Promarkers – Cocoa and Rose Pink

The challenge at Passion for Promarkers this week is to use the shades Cocoa and Rose Pink as the main colours on your chosen image.

Our sponsors this week are Yellow Moon/Baker Ross, who are offering a prize of a £10 gift voucher to spend on any of the craft supplies and children’s crafts at Baker Ross.

This is what our lovely DT member Debbi has to say about Baker Ross:

“This is a great place to buy crafty stuff for kids – ideal to keep them occupied during the duller or wetter days. I’ve bought loads from here, they also have a terrific selection of craft blanks e.g. wee gift boxes, pencil boxes bags etc. And I’m going to be really cheeky here and ask you all a favour – if any of you place an order at Yellow Moon, when you checkout there is a page that will ask you for a source code so that the commission on your order goes to a charity or group. As many of you know I’m the secretary/treasurer and co-founder of Extra Special Parents which is a support charity for parents and carers of children with special needs. Our source code is SSH10729 and I would really appreciate it if you could use that so that ESP receives the commission.”

Here is my card, and as usual the Promarker recipe is below the card.  I have used one of the fab Leanne Ellis designed stamps by Sugar Nellie, which are available from Funky Kits.  The papers are by Papermania and Basic Grey, and I’ve embossed a piece of Brown Bazzill Bling card with one of the latest Cuttlebug folders called ‘Victoria’. The sentiment, oval and scalloped oval punches are by Stampin’ Up.
