Good afternoon, lovely bloggers! Well, it's another beautifully sunny, but deceptively cold day here in Wales, so I hope you're all keeping warm and cosy!  I have spent the morning at my crafty table making a card to share with you all...As you may know, I am a big Promarker fan and love to sit and colour when I get the chance, so as today is a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers with the theme Prince or Princess with a crown, I decided to create a card to join in...
...I began by choosing my patterned papers for a change, which were First Edition Desert Blooms, Summer Breeze and Boho Chic. I knew that I wanted to use an image that I could do some paper piecing on (something I've been meaning to do for ages!), so chose the pretty Saturated Canary Nevaeh...
...I coloured her in with my Promarkers and paper pieced her dress with one of the small patterns from Spring Feast, then added some shading with Spice and Soft Peach pens.
Here's the colours for all you Promarker fans :
Skin - usual combo of Satin, Dusky and Sunkissed Pink
Hair - Vanilla, Mustard, Gold, Sandstone,  Caramel
Tights - Ivory, Vanilla, Mustard
Shoes - Antique White FM, Sandstone, Caramel,  Cocoa,  Umber
I tied a brown organza ribbon around her waist for the sash and added glamourdust to her petticoat. As the challenge called for a crown, I added one sourced from the net, coloured with Promarkers and blinged with tiny diamantes.  The sentiment is a Debbi Moore stamp that I borrowed from Mum and I added more diamantes to the full stops. I cut a memory box corner from silver glitter and added this cut up with some small mulberry paper flowers. I then made some diferent colour ribon loops and attached them behind the Marianne doily circle die. I finished with some more bling and pearls on the flower centres of the backing paper and a printed insert. I was really pleased with the finished result, especially that lovely SC image and hope you like it too! Thanks for dropping by, crafty hugs, Lisa x
