And its time again for another challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers! We have cardmaking ROYALTY in the house this week. Oooooh you'll have to pop over and see who's special guesting for us but we're all really nervous, we even gave the blog a lick of paint and tidied up before she came! This is one thing I love about blogging, there are so many people willing to help out where they can and especially with our challenge blog which is designed for newer cardmakers and bloggers to find their feet and its so nice that people take the time to share :)
I was late putting my card on today which is a first because I went to upload it from my camera last night only to find my camera had gone AWOL!!! DD1 had asked me earlier on yesterday if she could borrow it for Blackpool today, I ummed and ahhed as I dont like anyone borrowing it as I'm so reliant on it so when evening came she'd disappeared along with my camera eeeek!
Anyway its here now and the challenge is Spring into Spring! I chose a green and yellow colour combo as my interpretation of spring. Judie knows what my interpretation is and is probably having a right old chuckle!
I had a delivery from Sheenie Towers on Friday as my OH had got me a voucher for mothers day so thought I'd give my newest promarkers a whirl. I also got one of the Prima wildflowers pillar packs and gosh these are LOVELY! I'm so impressed with mine :D I'm still rubbish at flower embellishments unless I'm physically looking at Tab Robinsons blog! If my flower arrangement looks quite good and is glamour dusted you can put money on I've been stood in the kitchen with Tab's blog open on my blackberry!
I followed the sketch from Passion for promarkers this week and coloured using promarkers in the following:
Skin - Ivory, blush, vanilla, saffron, pastel pink (oooh a change!) Digressing a bit here but do other peope change their usual colour choice or style depending on the brand of stamp? I tend to do magnolias a lot more pinker so go heavier with the blush....
Sorry lol! Hair, I used my new ones for this, vanilla as the light and the new tan and caramel this time with cocoa for the shade.
Clothes - Primrose, buttercup, pastel yellow and the teesiest touch of gold and I put some ice grey 3 on too.
Jeans are Soft lime, lime zest, lime green with marsh as the shadow.
The flowers in her hair are coloured with yellow and orange sakura stardust pens.
