I ♥ ProMarkers #96 - Colour Combo


Good morning everyone, and welcome to another I ♥ ProMarkers Challenge. Thanks very much to everyone who entered last week's shaped cards challenge - fab entries, and don't forget to check the main challenge blog to see if you're the winner.

This week we have a colour combo for you -

Blue & White

You can either use this for a last minute Christmas make or go in a different direction altogether ... so long as you use Promarkers, Flexmarkers, Aquamarkers or Tria pens :-)

This week's prize is a £10 online store voucher for Crafty Emma's

Lovely! ... so what are you waiting for ??

I used this colour scheme to make my mum and dad's Christmas card ... and here it is.


This really is one of my fave stamps - I always make a few Chrimbo cards using Snowy as I think he is so adorable ... but I have never used him on a card for my mum and dad before. I also took the opportunity to use a couple of the fab blue coloured sheets from my Crafter's Companion "The Snowman" paper pack, as the pack is A5 and I always like to make an A5 card for my parents.


Stamps: Penny Black "Snowy" (2521K) and "a wish..." (3502F);
Media: Promarkers (Midnight Blue, Cornflower, Pastel Blue, Rose Pink, Cool Grey 1) and Flexmarkers (Glacier Blue, Blue Grey 1, Tea Rose);
Papers: Crafter's Companion "The Snowman";
Supplies: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts; pearls and large pearl brad from The Hobby House; lace from The Ribbon Box; ribbon from my stash;
Tools: large circle and lacy circle nestabilities; Cuttlebug "Ice Crystal" die.
