My first card is using the beautiful Just a Girl, coloured with Promarkers and Stickles Stardust. My friend, Susan, gave me a pile of cards that I'd made ages ago, for me to recycle. The Passion for Promarkers theme this week is Purple and Grey, so I saw that she fitted the theme perfectly.
Although I can clearly remember being chuffed to bits with my colouring at the time, when I saw it again, I was a little embarrassed. So I've added much more colour to everything but her skin. From looking at it now, I think it looks much better, but that I would also benefit from a lighter shade of purple too!!
Purple isn't one of my favourite colours and I originally saw the Promarker theme and thought I'd be giving it a miss this week, but as it is, I love the finished card and will try to remember that grey looks great with purple!! The papers are Papermania Capsule Collection and a colossal pad that I pretty much hate, but works ok for matting.
The second Gorjuss card is made using a new stamp, Ruby. I've coloured her with polychromo pencils and even had another go at blending. Her shoes also have some gloss on them too. The papers are First Edition Summer Bloom and the sentiment is from LOTV. I'd like to enter this card in the Crafts and Me Challenge of Use a New Image.
Bumble Bee, coloured with pencils and Stickles. This has been made for a little girl who likes pink and green and these papers, which I found in my stash and were free with something ages ago, fit the bill.
I used the very fabulous Sketch 42 from Sketch 'n' Stash. I love these sketches as they can be kept simple or dressed up to suit. As you can see, I've kept it simple - no surprise there, huh?!
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
The Crazy Challenge - Fairies
The Crafty Pad - Spring Colours
Gem of a Challenge - Fairies
Pixie Dust Studio Pixie Challenge - Girlie Girl
Phew, that's taken a while! Have a great day:0)
