Promarkers - my latest passion!

There's not been a lot going on with me on the crafting front this week, as I've been laid up with a real stinker of a head cold ... I have been off work sick for 4 days and had the whole days to myself but not felt up to making a card ... it must have been bad lol!!

Today though I thought I'd give it a go, and with good reason ... I mentioned last week that I had bought my first Promarkers and I had a little "dabble" insomuch as I managed to colour in Daisy the cow's hooves and horns. Since then though I have bought some more pens and a blender (naughty!!), so I at last felt up to tackling colouring in an image full on!


Lucky for me that the theme this week at Passion for Promarkers #52 is fantasy/ mythology - as I don't have a huge number if images suitable for colouring with the selction of pens I've got, but I do have this dainty LotV fairy ... and I have been eagerly watching the fab colouring tutorials on LotV's brilliant new Ideas to Inspire blog. I'm very pleased to be able to enter my first ever Promarker card into the Promarker challenge - well, it would be rude not to ;-)

I also followed the sketch from this week's Create 4 Fun Challenge #42



... and would also like to enter this card for

Flutterby Wednesday's #110 - butterfly, fairy or angel + flowers
Charisma #20 - 3D (roses)
Stamp Something - 2 of something ... I have used 2 main colours (lavender and blue), 2 papers, 2 punches, and 2 types of embellishment (flowers and pearls)
