Passion for Promarkers - 1st Anniversary - Anything Goes

Woohooo, Passion for Promarkers is 1 year old!! and we're celebrating in style - come join the party.
The new Design Team 2 has been revealed - and we're so chuffed to have some new faces on board, what fantastically talented ladies. It's a little bittersweet though, as we're also saying a temporary cheerio to Design Team 1 - but don't worry, like Arnie, they'll be back!

We've had a fantastic first year at PfP and personally speaking, I've had a ball - I get to work with fabulously talented ladies, who are great fun and make me laugh loads. I get to play with my favourite things and I also get to share my experience - what more could a girl ask for.

Anyway, enough of the speech - lets get on and tell you about all the fabulous prizes you could be in with a chance of winning.

 £50 worth of Joanna Sheen branded stamps
Complete set of 6 Sugar Nellie Mary Hall - Fairies stamps (donated by Me)

collection of Secret Crafter Manga stamps

complete set of 148 Promarkers
 set of Olivers Orchard stamps

£10 Gift certificate

  5x Ronnie , digital images

So have we tempted you yet?
Remember, you have to be in it to win it - and it's not difficult to enter, the theme this week is.... Anything Goes, so it's entirely up to you - just so long as you use promarkers on your creation 

This week, seeing as it's a special occassion, I thought I'd try something new. It's a style of card that has been on the go for a wee while, but I've always avoided it because I thought it looked awfully fiddly and complicated. But, boy, was I surprised at just how simple these tri-fold shutter cards actually are to make.
Image: Paul from TGF's Roll Call, Wild Sprouts Collection 1, coloured with promarkers: I tried out the same colours that Michele used for her video tut on the Weekend Workshop, Burnt Orange, Coral and Blush for his skin, Caramel, Cocoa and Walnut for his clothes and hair. 
Cardstock is all core'dinations, papers are Papermania Its A Man's World except the pale blue polka dots which are Wild Rose Studio.
Raffia ribbon is from Bunny Zoe, buttons from stash, greetings from Craftwork Cards
Here's another view and Paul's close-up...

So remember to pop over and see the fabulous designs from Team 1 and Team 2 over on the PfP blog and we'll look forward to seeing all your entries

** Edited to add the tutorial that I used to make my tri-fold shutter card - from Splitcoast Stampers

Thanks so much for the tutorial. I just tried it with my WW DT card for Friday and I am so pleased with the result. I had to work out the measurements as my card wasn't 12" wide. I am going to keep a note of the measurements and try out a larger one next. Look out for my efforts on my blog if you have the time. Thanks again. Marianne x
