Passion for Promarkers - Colours of Old Photos - Challenge 77


My turn to choose the theme at PFP this week and I've gone for Colours of Old Photos- either black and white or sepia tones.  Clearly I've gone for the Black and White option!  We're being sponsored this week by The Secret Crafter and there's a £10 voucher up for grabs.

I needed to make a male card for a family member and loved this new Kenny K digi image and thought it would be perfect for the accountant recipient!!  You may recognise the layout from my Halloween card a while back but love this stair step design!! 

I've coloured him with all three families of grey Promarkers and you can see a tutorial for how I did this over on the PFP Weekend Workshop this coming Friday. I dug out a rarely used Stampin Up rollagraph for the houses and just added some shading with my PMs to give some depth!  I also stamped some tree images and added them to give a silhouette effect. The grass and flower edging punches are Martha Stewart and the urgent/overdue stickers are some unused filing labels that I thought might come in useful!!
This pic is taken from the side just to show the tree silhouettes and the dimension a bit more clearly.

Of course, as it's a Kenny K image I'm entering into the Kenny K Krafty Girlz Challenge no 18 which wants anything but a square card.

My fab buddies on the PFP have produced some stunning cards again this week which you can check  out here.  I hope you're all going to do your usual and give us lots of fab cards to look at this week!!

This is beyond brilliant, Julie! I'm sure the bean counter was thrilled and I bet Nick loved it too given the Marvel-style character. Love all your dimension and the landscape features. Stunning colourwork! Amazing design! Go girl! Love Lesley
