Passion for Promarkers Challenge 2

well its week two over at the PASSION FOR PROMARKERS challenge this week the challenge is to use the colours APPLE and PASTEL PINK and i have to say pastel pink is not a colour i use very often so it was a bit of a challenge for me too, and remember you can combine challenges this week, you should go and check out my team mates blogs cos their creations are fabulous







the image i've used is a Sarah Kay stamp (rose's garden) coloured with my promarkers ...of course !!cut with the oval and scalloped oval nesties, the paper is Brenda Pinnick, the leaves are cut with a woodware punch ,the flowers an x-cut punch and the roses wildorchidcrafts. i coloured the edges of the roses with the pastel pink promarker to colourmatch them to the card, the sentiment is whiff of joy and its cut with a spellbinders ribbon tag die, the ribbon is from my stash and the pearls are kanban, hope you can join us again this week.




the Promarker colours i've used are :



SKIN: Dusky pink, Blush, Ivory
HAIR: Vanilla, Sandstone
JEANS, FOLIAGE & HEADSCARF : Apple, Forest green,
TOP & FLOWERS: Pastel pink, Coral
GROUND: Ice grey 1-5
OUTLINE: Pastel blue
KITTEN & BASKET: Vanilla, Sandstone
PLANTPOT: Terracotta


The prize for this week has been donated by Denise and is the beautiful 'Shy Willow' from 'Whiff of joy





Thanks for popping in
