Passion for Promarkers #51 - Strawberries & Cream

We have a gorgeous summery theme for you this week at Passion for Promarkers - chosen by Sue - Strawberries and Cream. Now you can interpret that in a number of ways, whether its the colour strawberry and cream or more literally like I did.

The prize this week is a pack of 5 Promarkers from Letraset


Image: Shy Willow from Whiff of Joy, coloured with promarkers: Sunkissed Pink and Blush for her skin, Warm Grey 3-5, Meadow Green & Apple Green, Pear Green, Grass and Berry Red

Papers are all Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety, ribbon is Smirk, and the greeting is also from Whiff of Joy

Here's her close-up...

I wasn't entirely happy with that card, so I decided to make another, but this time I focussed more on the colour scheme of strawberry and cream, using Vanilla Cream core'dinations card as my base...

Main image: Gorjuss Girl from Sugar Nellie, strawberry stamps are from Whiff of Joy, the top greeting is Hero Arts and the bottom one is Whiff of Joy.
coloured with promarkers: Cardinal Red for her dress and the strawberries, Marsh Green for the trim on her dress and the strawberry leaves, Warm Grey 3 for the shading on her tights, Ivory, Vanilla and Sunkissed Pink for her skin, Caramel, Cinnamon and Cocoa for her hair.
The cardstock is all Vanilla Cream core'dinations (I even stamped the images and coloured them directly onto this cardstock)
Pearls are Kaisercraft.

Here's her close-up....
