Paper Artsy meets Promarkers

If you've been paying attention (and even if you haven't I doubt you missed the fact) you'll know that my super crafty chum Kath had the class of a lifetime with Tim Holtz - her idol. And the naughty lady brought Anne and myself some goodies home with her, including this gorgeous stamp set from Paper Artsy. Now this arty, grungy stuff isn't normally my style at all - but I'm definitely enjoying doing something new. Now these aren't the colouring-in type of stamps, but my trusty promarkers were not going to be made redundant in a hurry, so this is what I came up with...


I used Arctic Blue, Sky Blue, Azure and French Navy promarkers to colour a panel of card, then stamped the butterfly image from the Petals Plate 6 from PaperArtsy with versamark on top of my coloured background and heat embossed in black.
The smooth kraft and black card is all SU, the corrugated card is from Simply Create, the letters are kaisercraft from Merly Impressions and I used the letrajet with an Azure promarker, and a That Special Touch mask from Angel Crafts to make the polka dots on the corrugated kraft. And I nearly forgot the very bold MS Scroll Heart deep edge punch.


I'd like to enter this card into...
Flutterby Wednesday - open
Papertake Weekly - anything goes

Extremely resourceful - I love the way you will tackle different aspects - I like to do the same & can sympathize with the arty. grungy thing not being my style either. Very impressed with that butterfly & that punch - well that is something else. Am at Artstamps Wales next Sat & I KNOW one of the exhibitors will have Hero Arts so am avidly researching....... already have a list .......

Looks amazing Debbi.I love how you've still managed to use your trusty Promarkers.

I'm having no time to do anything this week. But it's my own fault lol! I have loads of stuff to do for a big WRI show in Ellon on Saturday and I know I should have had most of it done ages ago. I never learn!!
