Well my week has got a lot better, I've finally left All Dressed Up DT after months of bitching from a very jealous vindictive Coordinator!
Feel very relieved! Blogging and crafting is meant to be a happy thing! Some people just have nothing better to do and try to bring the happy positive people like myself down to make themselfs feel better!!
So a fresh start for me was well overdue!!
Makes me appreciate all the lovely ladies like you a whole lot more!! <3

Tinkerbelle - Whisper a Wish (Faery Ink)

Image
Hello!
I made this card for the Facebook Challenge at Faery Ink - Take height. They want you to add height to your image, so I coloured & fussy cut her out 3 times (took forever!!) and layered each one with 1.5mm foam pads (that took forever too!!)
The top layer doesn't have wings so that she looks 3D I also put foam pads under the patterned paper & sentiment, so this really does stick out!!

I used:
Tinkerbelle - Faery Ink Promarkers LOTV papers Ribbon, heart sparkler, gems from stash Star sequins - Lucys cards Glitter medium paste on her wings Pink glitter glue over the sentiment and in dots around the stars




Thanks for visiting! Have a lovely day!

Hello!
I'm struggling to get motivated at the moment! Been very poorly and lacking mojo!
I saw this pretty freebie in kit & Clowder Facebook group, it's by yampuff who created it to look like Alyce (who runs K&C) and her cat!
So thought I'd have a play along with them in the group to cheer myself up!

I used:
Yampuff Digi Promarkers & Flexmarkers LOTV paper WOC flowers Dew drops Stampin up Sentiment stamp



I tried to colour ditsy print on her dress to look like the paper but I think it may have ruined it lol

Monochrome at Passion For Promarkers

Image
Hi Everyone
Time for a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers This week is My Theme! I chose: Monochrome
We are sponsored by All Dressed Up

I really love monochrome and I do it so much, usually pink or lilac so thought I'd do something a bit different and have gone all Black & White!
I even took a risk of colouring the image totally grayscale - that was a real challenge to get the shading right and not lose the detail!!


I used:
Top Knot Promarkers  LOTV Mr & Mrs Papers & Sentiment Stamp Black lace - Ribbon girl Die cut corners 3mm black pearls Pattern edge scissors Heart punch  Black thin ribbon
Punched the smaller heart and made a larger heart template myself then layered both onto black card then stuck the smaller on the larger heart and added the bow, I think it looks really cute lol



Hope you can all join us for my Theme :-) get your Promarkers out girls! Hehe
