Passion for Promarkers - Stars are the order of the day


Yes, Tuesdays are PFP day in my alternate reality!!! Today's theme of Stars has been chosen by my fabbie teamie, Lisa.  I decided to dust off a Tilda, so love this girl but haven't used her much lately, so it was lovely to colour her up.  After colouring her dress, I then decided I wanted to paper piece her dress, using this gorgeous knitted design paper from the Basic Grey Nordic pad. What I wasn't going to do was paper piece the candy cane and heart biscuits that were peeking out of her pockets!  So I improvise and punched a teeny apple and hearts instead - much more healthy!!!

The mistletoe die is a  new one from Marianne's creatables, as is the little label die from a new range of stamps and die sets by Sizzix/Hero Arts.  Love this little die as it's perfect for sentiments and almost looks like a speech bubble here!  The sentiment is from a Paula Pascal set of Christmas sentiments - just some of my purchases from my recent visit to the Glitter Pot!!  I've heat embossed my stars and the mistletoe flower with a translucent glittery powder, although not showing up very well here.

This week, our challenge is being sponsored by Crafter's Companion to the tune of a fantastic  £20 voucher to spend with them so what are you hanging about here for!!  Get cracking on those Starry creations and play along!!
Oh and do go starry-eyed over the gorgeous creations by my PFP teamies which you can see here!
