It's Tuesday again and another challenge at Passion for Promarkers. This weeks challenge is set by the lovely Natalie and the challenge is the colour combo Cocoa and Rose Pink

This weeks prize is a £10 gift voucher to spend on any of the craft supplies and childrens crafts at Baker Ross

For this card i got myself in a right old tizz and tried distressing !!! dont know who was more distressed me or the paper lol i have enough trouble cutting some of my papers and the thought of tearing it well that brings me out in a cold sweat !!! any how here it is
The image is an anya by the greeting farm coloured with promarkers, for a change i didn't use my nesties to cut out the image i used the nesties to cut the appeture into the design paper. i dont know the name of the papers they were from my stash, the border is martha stewart doily the paper edges are distressed with a tim holtz distressing tool, the gems are coloured with the rose pink promarker. the dotty ribbon is from stash the flower cut with the retro punch and x-cut punch and the rose is coloured with my promarkers too.

The promarker colours i've used are :

SKIN: Dusky pink, Blush, Ivory
HAIR: Henna, Raw Sienna, Mustard
CLOTHES: Blossom, Dusky Pink, Cocoa & Cinnamon.

Thanks for popping in

It's lovely, Helen. I love these images, they are great to colour in, lots of big areas. I know exactly what you mean about tearing paper. There is something quite different about tearing - I much prefer cutting and punching. It's a great card, anyway.
