Promarkers on Plastic - Pt 2

Back again with part 2 of the promarkers on plastic - now when I chose the colours for this one I was thinking "boys card", lovely bright primary colours (yes I know green is a secondary colour) but it turned into something completely different once I got in full flow yesterday afternoon...
The butterflies are from the Hero Arts - Antique Engravings CL383 set, coloured with promarker, the swirl is a Tim Holtz Alterations die - Elegant Flourishes (which my buddy Kath cut for me from white card and I coloured it with black promarker) This was all added to the promarker on plastic panel that I made the other day (click here to see how I made it) which I stuck down onto the corrugated kraft card from Simply Create and yellow core'dinations card.


I'd like to enter it into...
Flutter By Wednesday - open
I ♥ ProMarkers - stitching
Crafty Creations - at the bottom of my garden... lives
Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight - plastic




This is so totally different to what I usually create, but I really like it - don't be shy though, tell me what you think - I won't be offended :)


Tomorrow I'll be back with a DT project for Angel Crafts - you really must get your hands on Angela's ribbon kits, they are such good value and there's loads of goodies besides ribbons.

And don't forget to enter the Promarker Blending Pairs Competition - closes on Monday

Hi Debbi. Gorgeously textural card. There's nothing wrong with trying something new and this has worked brilliantly. Thanks for joining us at I ♥ Promarkers.

What a feast for the eyes. It looks like the butterfly has landed on a glass table with raindrops on. I just sat looking & exclaiming. Love the Kraft card & all the textures. That Hero Arts set is going to have to be on my wish list. I love your colouring of the butterflies, the way that bottom one sits off the panel & breaks up the stitching, Oh & I've just seen the circles in the butterfly wings echoed in the embossed circles too, plus the way that swirl picks up the swirls in the pattern of the embossed plastic. Oh & such an encouraging post for me - nothing ever ends up how I start. Thanks again.

I think your card is fab, very different - I love the colours and the butterflies are perfect. Love the way you've used the corrugated card. I imagine this card looks even better IRL!
Love, Andrea xx
