Passion for #Promarkers Mega Challenge

Well its been 6 months and now time to hand back over to team 1 at Passion for Promarkers so this is my last week until the end of the year.  Its also their 2nd Anniversary so to celebrate we are having the 2 teams posting and are creating 2's - 2 images, embellishments, flowers etc you get the gist!  There are some awesome prizes up for grabs for this one - more to win so better the chance!  Prizes are listed below...

Wowzers hey!  How fab are they?!

For this I used items from some of the sponsors - Promarkers of course by Letraset! I have also used a new digi by The Emerald Faerie Garden called Willy & Mia, I went for this as its 2 faeries and I did a reflection for another '2' along with 2 flowers and pearls. The paper I used is by Bearly Mine Designs from the designer extremes 3 cd.


Would like to enter into...

Make it colorful - Water scene
Totally Gorjuss - Water
One stop craft - Fairytales
Emerald Faeries - Anything goes




For those that asked how to do the reflection, basically if you're famliar with picture editting software like paint shop pro then do this adding new layers each time...

1. Make a copy and flip
2. Reduce the visibility of the flipped image to about 70% so it prints grey not black
3. New layer and add either a straight or draw a curved waterline
4. Print then colour same as main image using a lighter hand
5. Take blender pen and colour right over it to reduce colour
6. optional - colour over with a white coloursoft/prisma pencil
voila!
