Passion for Promarkers - Week 2 - Pastel Pink and Apple

What a fabulous start to the Passion for Promarkers blog  - we had so many entries, it was almost a full time job for all of us on the DT to get round and see them all, and we're definitely not complaining. There were fabulous entries from crafters with all levels of promarker experience. We're so thrilled so many people took part in our first week and we're hoping all of you will be back for week 2. So please pop on over to Passion for Promarkers - the only rule is you have to use this weeks featured colours : Apple and Pastel Pink.

The prize this week is a gorgeous stamp from Whiff of Joy - its called Shy Willow and it is from the newly released Elisabeth Bell Summer collection. 

So, on with my DT card for this week.

Debbi 500

Image: Poise by Leanne Ellis @ Sugar Nellie

Promarkers used: Apple and Pastel Pink layered several times for depth on dress and flowers Warm Grey 1 for shadow,  Black, Warm Grey 3 & 5 for hair, Ivory and Blush for skin,

Sakura White Med Gelly Roll for highlights, papermania clear shimmer dots used on flowers in the image

image matted onto green core'dinations card

I didn't have any paper flowers that matched the colours I used so I picked out some white Papermania flowers from the black and white embellishment trio and coloured them with Apple and Pastel Pink promarkers

Flower centres are tiny paper flowers from stash and clear Papermania shimmer dots. Leaves are a fern punch from Emerald Crafts, punched from core'dinations card.

Pale pink card at the back is Doodlebug, pastel pink core'dinations card was embossed using the birds and swirls cuttlebug embossing folder and sanded

Apple green satin ribbon from the Smirk range
