The first challenge for 'Passion for ProMarkers' really let you 'go wild and creative' with 'ANYTHING GOES' !

Well for those that follow my blog you will see a marked improvement in my photographs (I hope!). Yes I finally got my new camera! LOVE IT! I just need to learn how to use it properly and get the best out of it, but I guess that comes with time!

Anyway.... I digress as always! ! Ha.

The card I made for the Passion for ProMarkers first challenge, which is 'Anything Goes'.

I used a sketch from Friday Sketchers, but haven't entered this card in their challenge as that was one of the stipulations on entering the first challenge. There are huge, fabaroony, delicious prizes to be won, hence the card has to be unique to this challenge!

For the front of my card I used a Tilda image very kindly given to me by Simonne (Sem See) and coloured in using ProMarkers (basically all the ones I have (well that my daughter has!) lol !. I have listed below the individual colours and where I have used them. I used my ink essentials pen for highlights.

I cut Tilda out using my Nesties but as they were not big enough to get all the image in, I decided to have her feet 'out of the frame'. To achieve this, I put a piece of folded card between her feet and the cutting edge of the Nestie. So when the image was cut, it left the feet area uncut. I think it turned out rather well ! Phew, could have been a big mess!

I inked around the edge of all the layers and the image with a colour box 'cats eye' pad in lavender, just to give it a bit more depth.

The sentiment was cut using my scalloped Nesties once again and a plain oval for the mat. The sentiment is from Elzybells and I used this one as it was the only one I had that would fit in the shape! The crystal I think just finishes it off and adds a bit of bling!

The flowers are made using Prima Flowers, punched flower in the same papers as the layers, flower spacer and chrome brad. The charm is one I made from different embellies I have bought from eBay. Ribbon is from my stash.

I used the same layout for the inside of the card as the front for uniformity (gosh I hope that;s not a rude word!). Again using my Nesties for the sentiment mat. The sentiment is another from Elzybells and I have left the diamond on the right hand side blank for a greeting to be written if needed. The flowers again are Prima with punched flowers from the same Basic Gray paper. A small spacer and chrome brad finish the flowers off.
