Passion For Promarkers Winter Blues


Don't worry it's not me feeling blue but our theme over on Passion for Promarkers this week! The challenge has been set by my gorgeous teamie Anja - Winterblue Christmas.

Our sponsor this week is the Secret Crafter and you could win a £10 voucher to spend with them!

 
 I showed some ink to this gorgeous Sweet Pea image for the first time and it's my first Christmas card of the year!!  Only another hundred odd to go!!  She's not an obviously Christmassy image but she does have holly in her hair and berry earrings!! And I know my girlies and nieces will love this style of Crimbo card.  I used my Promarkers to colour her and my papers are from a wonderful 12x12 K&Co pad that I bought last year. I embossed the white paper frame with an Inkadinkoo snowflake flourish - you can hardly see it but I know it's there!  The sentiment stamp and frame is Stampin Up and the other bits from stash. 

The sketch was a delightfully simple one to use from Friday Sketchers leaving you to bling it up as much or as little as you wanted!!  I'm entering it in there, A Spoon Full of Sugar whose theme is Christmas in August, and Totally Gorjuss who have  Aqua as their theme.  I did use my Aqua coloured promarker and as she's a Mermaid, she is obviously celebrating Christmas under the sea!!
Don't forget to hop on over to PFP later to see the winners from last week's challenge. Do check out the cards too, from my fabbie teamies - they are awesome.  See you through the week to view your cards for the challenge - thanks for stopping by!
