Happy Birthday Daniel ♥

This one is for my rockstar son Daniel -Happy Birthday dude !
It is also for our Anything goes challenge at I ♥ promarkers this week .I chose this image because it reminded me of Daniel , He is in a band and plays guitar , he even looks remarkably like this character ,even down to the enlarged hole pierced in his ear ! He has the same dark eyebrows  and holey jeans - in fact the only thing different is his hair ,Daniel has his short .
I used craft artist to cut out the image digitally and then overlay it onto a musical background that I created ,specially  Then I added a digital shadow before colouring with my Pms - I was really pleased with the effect

Paper Piercing

This week's challenge at I ♥ promarkers is paper piercing, that's right there is an R in it ! it is definitely piercing and not piecing. So get those pokey tools out and get pricking . i  have made quite a few for this challenge ,as I kept mucking it up ! several attempts later and I got one that I was sort of happy with -I have used "poinsetta" from our sponsor -/digi doodle shop

An easel challenge

This week 's challenge at I ♥ promarkers  is to  make an easel card , I really like making easel cards ,but I find them quite tricky to photograph !
I have used another fab image from Mo Manning -Elf Mim .
I mad the easel from a frame designed by Einnej, I cut two  to make my easel   and used the out of the frame technique with the image to make it look as if Mim was swinging through the frame

My first stretchy card

I saw some stretchy cards being demonstrated on C and C and thought how good the style looked even though the designs used did nt really appeal so i got my thinking cap on an worked out how they were made and this is what I came up with .

I chose this image specifically to tie it in with our I ♥ promarkers challenge this week  which is -"things with wings "
I cut the words and the stars on my cricut with SCAL2 .
