Passion for ProMarkers Challenge DT Card

Hi there everyone and thanks for stopping by today. Well it's Tuesday today so that means we have a new challenge for you over at Passion for ProMarkers where this it’s Emma’s turn and the theme she has chosen is ‘Sweet Treats’.

Our sponsor for this week is Simon Says Stamp and they are offering one lucky person a $10 gift voucher.


And this is what I came up with.

The adorable image is ‘Betty Mouse with Candy Cane’ from Whiff of Joy and I’ve coloured her using my AquaMarker pens from Letraset. I’m in the middle of finishing off a video tutorial that I’ve done showing how I coloured in the image using the AquaMarkers, so watch this space.

If you like how I’ve achieved the frame around the image, then go over to the Whiff of Joy Inspirations blog tomorrow, where I’ve done a tutorial on how I did this.

The DP that I’ve used is from DCWV Christmas Stack which I’ve had for a couple of years now. I distressed the edges and then inked them up using Frayed Burlap distress ink.

The snowflakes I created using my Spellbinders Create A Flake 1 dies and also using a punch.

Challenges that I’ll be entering this card are :-

Sketch Saturday – Sketch

Sweet Stampin Challenge – Winter Wonderland

I hope that you get the chance to join us this week.

  15. Looking forward to the AquaMarker tutorial & I DO like that idea of framing the image panel. The snowflakes are brilliant too & the papers work so well, & as for those glorious hinges at the top...... goodness there's so much here.
