So this week we have something a little different.... you can use any colours of promarkers, so as many of you can enter as possible, and Denise has chosen a recipe for us this week - 3 shapes (not including the card base), 2 papers and 1 ribbon.
Now I must admit the 3 different shapes threw me to begin with, I thought I was going to end up with a card that looked like one of the kids collage pictures, but it was actually easier than I thought it would be.
This weeks fabby prize is another 5 pack of Promarkers kindly donated by Letraset, so its the perfect opportunity to build your PM collection - we'd love to see your creations again this week.
Remember to check out the fab cards from the other DT and GDT members this week for more inspiration.
So here's my card, and I'll explain the recipe elements in case its not clear... the 3 shapes are: squares for the patchwork background, oval for the image and circle for the greeting; there are 2 different papers for the patchwork, and the ribbon is pretty self-explanatory really ;)
Image: Miss Clause from Sugar Nellie, coloured with promarkers of course: Pink Carnation and Fuchsia for her hair and parcels, Bluebell and China Blue for her hat, coat, boots and bag, Blush for her skin. I added Papermania white glitter flock to the fluffy trim areas for some dimension.
For the background I used 2 different papers from the Trimcraft Winter Wonderland pack and cut 1 of the sheets into 1 inch squares. Then I glued the squares to the other sheet of paper so that each paper was showing alternately. Then I machine stitched a patchwork effect.
The mats are pale pink card from my stash cut with an oval scallop nestie for the image mat and a round scallop nestie for the greeting. The greeting is also from my stash. I ran a line of double sided tape near the bottom of the card and folded ribbon from Dovecraft along it to give a pleated effect. The snowflakes are all Papermania dimension stickers.Here's a couple of close-ups for you to see the colouring on the image and also to see the stitching...
