Less is More

I have just discovered a new challenge blog that is just right for me at the moment.  I love making fussy, highly-detailed cards, but sometimes simple cards can be good too, plus they are so much less time-consuming if you are short of time! I would recommend looking at the Less is More blog if you’d like an idea for a quick, but elegant, card. All the examples and the challenge entries that I have seen have been gorgeous.

Here is my take on the latest challenge, which is a sketch for a tall, skinny card of DL proportions.

The bunting stamp is by Molly Blooms, and coloured with Promarkers, and the sentiment disc is by Craftwork Cards.  Everything else is from my scrap box.

Thanks for visiting!

Passion for Promarkers – Girls, Girls, Girls!

We have a fab challenge for all you girlie girls at Passion for Promarkers this week!  The theme is ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’, and it’s a good excuse to go wild, and play with all your lovely pink stash – well, that was my excuse anyway! 

Our sponsors for this challenge are Letraset, who are giving a prize of a set of five Promarkers to our lucky winner.

I think that many of you will agree that it would be hard to get more girlie than the luscious Gorjuss Girls by Sugar Nellie!  I chose this gorgeous little fairy girl for my card and, of course, her dress just had to be pink. As I love to use green with pink,  I couldn’t resist adding the pink and green combo papers by Craftwork Cards to my stash.  Although they are basically Christmas papers, I think they also work well at other times of the year.  Scroll down for my Promarker recipe.

Promarkers used:

Skin: Ivory, Blush, Pastel Pink.

Hair: Chestnut, Umber.

Dress: Pale Pink, Cocktail Pink, Baby Pink.

Wings: Meadow Green, Leaf Green, with Glitter Glue.

Tights: Green and Pink combination as above.

Thanks for dropping by; I always look forward to your visit and any comments you may leave.
