Passion for Promarkers - Pretty Pastels...

Good morning, dear Blogger buddies! Well, I didn't know if I would be with you this week for the start of my new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers, as I had a bit of an issue with my hard drive dying! Thankfully, I have a wonderful in house technician in the form of my hubby, who is an absolute whizz with all things electrical and managed to get me back up and running again...
...So this week, it's my turn to host over at Passion for Promarkers and I've given you all a nice, easy theme of 'Pretty Pastels'...those of you who know me will know that I love pastel colours and even when I am trying to colour boldly, my creations tend to end up on the softer side, so i thought it would be quite an apt theme. We're being sponsored by Little Miss Muffet Stamps who are offering one lucky winner a $6.00 voucher to spend in their online store...
We were lucky enough to get an image to play with and I chose the super sweet Puddle Jack...
I coloured him up with my Pro/Flexmarkers and used a combination of papers from my stash including, pale green gingham from the Calla Lily set and pink polka dot from the Hibiscus set of Say it with Flowers and the Baby stripe from Another Play on Words...
I matted the image onto an XCut scalloped square and added pearls and gems around the edge for a bit of bling. The printed insert reads '...whatever the weather' to tie in with Jack and his umbrella.
Got to go and do the dreaded food shop in a bit, but I've promised the little man that we'll go out for lunch first, then I need to get my head into gear for Sincerely Yours papercraft at Leigh Show...ON SATURDAY!! Aaarghhh!!
Hope you can join in with my challenge this week and I look forward to seeing and commenting on all your lovely creations.  Have a terrific Tuesday, whatever you're doing...
Hugs,

Passion for Promarkers - Fun in the Sun...

...If only?! It seems as though the sun has forgotten how to shine at the moment and our days consist of bright spells and humdinger showers! Why does the Summer seem to end as soon as the school holidays begin?!...
Anyway, 'Fun in the Sun' is the theme of our new challenge starting at Passion for Promarkers today, which is being hosted by the lovely Julie. We're being sponsored by Sasayaki Glitter who are offering one lucky winner a digital image of their choice from their online store...
We were lucky enough to get an image to play with and I went for the ever so sweet Amy in the Garden...

I decided to be a bit ambitious and cut around the image for the front of the card - a bit of a fiddle, but worth it for the end result!...
I used the Frog cloud paper from Animal Antics in the background and added a few more clouds in die cut format...as you can never have too many?! The rainbow is an embellishment from Animal Antics and I created the sentiment in PS...
I coloured up a few copies of the image, so that I could decoupage up some of the layers and paper pieced her dress.
I hope you can join in with our challenge this week ad look forward to seeing what you have all created - don't forget to hop over to the Passion for Promarkers blog to see what my talented teamies have created for your inspiration and to be in with a chance of winning the prize, you MUST use your Letraset / Winsor & Newton mediums and follow the challenge theme.
