Passion for Promarkers #27 - Maria's Theme - Vintage

Its week #27 over at Passion for Promarkers and our penultimate challenge for 2009. Maria has chosen "Vintage" as her theme this week and you can use ANY COLOURS of promarkers.

Now this challenge has had me worried for weeks because its so far out of my comfort zone, I have never even attempted anything vintage before. BUT, I think I like it! 

So if you fancy having a go at this challenge, remember all you need to do to qualify for the prize draw is use ANY COLOUR of promarkers AND create something "Vintage".
And this week's fabulous prize is a £10 voucher to spend at

They have a fantastic range of kids and adults crafts - some fabulous ideas to keep the kids busy and some super stocking fillers and gifts. If you do place an order with them, can I be cheeky and ask you to enter the source code: SSH10729. If you do this then our charity Extra Special Parents will receive the commission at NO EXTRA COST TO YOU. So not only will you get some super crafty bits, but you will also be supporting parents and carers of children with additional needs.

Image: Poise from Sugar Nellie, coloured with promarkers: Blush for her skin, Baby Pink for her lips, Apricot, Raw Sienna, Chestnut & Walnut for her hair, Mulberry and Plum for her dress and the flowers. I then covered the entire image with Ranger Sepia Accents for a "vintage" look.
The card base is core'dinations card which was sanded, Paper is K&Co and the edges were distressed and inked, the lace is from my stash and coloured with Caramel Promarker. The image is matted onto core'dinations card. The large flower is made from core'dinations card and the K&Co paper, retro flower punch and the petals are then punched with the Martha Stewart Deco Shell punch. The wee flowers are Prima, all the gems were coloured with Plum promarker

And here's a close-up of the lady...
