PFP - Funky Hair!!


Yep, still having problems with blogger - waiting for OH to put me to the top of his list and sort out my lap top!!
This is my card for the new challenge at Passion for Promarkers, set by our lovely Lou!  She asked us to make a monochromatic card with funky coloured hair for the image.  Really not very happy with my offering, the shading looks blocky in my pics but always good to try something new! 
The image is by the gorgeous Krista at Saturated Canary, with a little bit of Fifty Shades inspiration methinks!
My papers are from the Memory Box Viola set and I stamped the scripted piece myself using a Stampin Up large stamp.  I also used this to stamp on the chipboard button at the top.  The flourishes are cut and stamped with a PTI combo - I've heat embossed the flourishes for some extra richness! The little tags at the bottom are also from the PTI Tiny Tags range.


Our  sponsor this week is Joanna Sheen who is offering one lucky winner a £10.00 voucher to spend in her online store – and with free delivery your prize will definitely go that little bit further!

Check out the stunning makes by my DT buddies at PFP here - they are awesome!! 
I think I may be waiting with my hand on my hip like this tonight, if OH still hasn't taken a look at my laptop!!!
