My card in this month's Papercraft Inspirations!!

Back in January the Passion for Promarkers team girls were asked if we could make some cards to support an article about colouring with Promarkers for Papercraft Inspirations magazine!!  Well, the article has now appeared in April's edition and this is my card! My first ever one in print!!!

Sadly, they mucked up the credits and have put my blog details against my teamie, Denise's card and vice versa!!  Still at least my name is against the biggest card on the page ( and the boss of PFP!!)
You can see all the fabulous cards made by the rest of the girls below!

For my card, I used one of my all time fave images from Mo Manning, The Tramp which you can find by clicking on the link.  My idea was to show the way you can create a sepia/monochrome image by using a one colour way and I'd also said this in my blurb which they didn't use!!
I used Graphic 45  Curtain Call papers to complement The Tramp and also punched all round the page with a Stampin Up journal Punch as I thougth it mirrored the film strip punched with a Tim Holtz die.

I also used a Vintage Frame stamp, I think it's a Hero Arts Cling stamp to get the old, frame effect.

Well that's my fifteen minutes seconds of fame!!!  Don't all crowd me for autographs!!

I should have commented on this when I first saw it but I was speaking with you at the time and my multi-tasking days are behind me. It is a fabulous make. Love your sentiment and your little pics of Charlie in the frames. Fab colouring too! I'll get your autograph when I next see you! Love Lesley
