Passion for Promarkers #17 - Any Colour plus Polka Dots

This week's challenge at Passion for Promarkers was chosen by little me. We want to see polka dots on your cards and creations this week. You can use any colour(s) of promarkers you wish so there's no excuse for not joining in - for those of you lucky enough to have received the new colours, why not use them?
Remember you MUST use at least one promarker to qualify for the prize draw. 

This week's prize is sponsored by Letraset who have very kindly donated another 5 pack of promarkers, even more incentive to enter this week eh?
 The DT and this month's 2 guest designers have come up wih some outstanding designs so remember to check them all out at Passion for Promarkers.
Also over at the Passion for Promarkers blog is our Prize Blog Hop to celebrate the launch of 56 new colours from Letraset. Each of the DT are giving away 1 of the new promarker colours plus their blog hop card, PLUS you could also win the complete set of 56 new colours, again kindly donated by Letraset. Hurry though as the hop ends this Thursday 17th September.

I've made up a blank chart which includes all the new and old colours, the idea of this is so that you can print it onto your normal cardstock and colour it in yourself to give you a true representation of the colours, it also acts as an at-a-glance guide to the colours you have and the ones that you need. If you want a copy of this in PDF format to print off at home just email Gina, who will be only too happy to send it to you. Gina can also send you any of the PfP Tutorials in PDF format for you to print and keep. 

 Ok, so would you like to see my card this week? For those of you that have been paying attention ;) you'll notice that this is the image I used for the tutorial on Friday's weekend workshop on PfP and also right here - its #8 - image colouring, new colours.

Image: Claudia the Artist from Sugar Nellie, coloured with promarkers: new colours; Orchid, Purple, Plum, Mulberry,  Tan, Pink Carnation, Fuchsia Pink, Caramel & Walnut. old colours: Blush for her skin and Umber for the darkest parts of her hair.
Mats were cut using the new Labels 9 nesties in the cuttlebug, from core'dinations card
The polka dot papers are all CCSR, matted onto core'dinations card
The greeting is a WoJ stamp, and finally I coloured the Hero Arts pearls with Plum promarker

Here's a couple of close-ups of Claudia and of the pearls...
I'm looking forward to seeing all of your polka dot creations

Hi Debbi,
I love the lilac colouring in this card. The image is so beautifully coloured. Gorgeous.
I take it that Sarah told you that we are Cavvie people as well. They are such affectionate dogs. I'm jealous.
