cooking it up with Katie and Mo's digital pencil challenge

WHOO HOO ! I MADE THE TOP 5 AGAIN ! My snail mail card has won me the PASSION FOR PROMARKERS passionista blinkie again !!!
Anyway thats enough own trumpet blowing for today heres my latest creation , this time i am entering it in 2 challenges because they both have a sparkly theme
. I am entering it in Bella and brontes challenge blog
and also in design team colleague Katies challenge blog "cooking it up with Katie"
The image is from Mo's digital pencil and i have coloured it with my favourite pens -Promarkers !
i love how the colours on the bauble all blended together to give it a mother of pearl effect. i have also given it a wash with a sakura glitter pen so it looks really pearly in real life . The photo just does nt do t justice at all (oops im trumpet blowing again ) - but trust me it is really pretty

Dotties world challenge

I made this this week for a colleague to give to her best friend who is going to be 60. She is off to celebrate with a safari in Kenya ( lucky devil) , anyway i remembered i had this image from charmed crafts so i printed and coloured it twice and layered it up with a hand drawn frame around it and matted onto some leopard skin effect paper. I added a little 60 ,camouflaged under a bush so that it is nt prominant on the card and my colleague was thrilled with it . Apparently this looks just like her friend !
whilst looking through my bloglist ,i saw that the latest challenge at dotties world is to make a card with a foreign theme , so this card was just perfect for it as the image is one of theirs


DUH !i just realised that i am now too late to enter this in the challenge , i was so excited about my win at i love promarkers that i forgot to upload this one for polkadoodles ! any way it was for a friend to give to her husband's friend for his 50 th and seeing as mens cards are so awkward to do , i thought i would show it anyway . I hand cut the car using a photo of Pauls car as the template , he loves the car more than his wife i am told ,so he should lke it !

woo hoo ! i won a challenge

i am in shock this morning as i have won a challenge !
It was the "I love promarkers challenge #4" i saw a few days ago that i was one of the finalists and i have been on tender hooks since then waiting to see who 's card letraset had chosen as the winner , now i am grinning like an idiot :)

Passion for promarkers challenge

The challenge this week over at Passion for promarkers is to use the colours canary yellow and grass , This is probably a bit out of my comfort zone as the colours are not my favourites by any means , but i thought i would give it a go anyway .
I have had this image for a while and thought it would be a good one for a "sorry i forgot your birthday" , but with the current postal issues i thought it might be good as a "sorry its late "instead
