Happy Friday fellow bloggers, i bet we are all looking forward to the weekend. I am because it means my Thommas will be home from his holiday on Monday :D i cant wait to see him.
Anyway on with my card.
The challenge at Passion For Promarkers this week is to make your own embellies, you can find it here . This is the 1st time i have entered a challenge on this blog, I'm so enjoying all these new challenges and finding all the wonderful blogs out there.
The flower is a digi image, sorry i cant remember where it comes from, i really must start saving them with where they come from. The purple one is coloured with Lilac, Lavender & Amethyst Promarkers. The yellow one with Vanilla, Pastel Yellow & Mustard and the blue flower with Pastel Blue, Blue Pearl & Cornflower. I am very happy with how they turned out and think i must be starting to get the hang of using my pro markers correctly.
Now the embellies that i made are the super sparkly butterflies, or flutterbies as they are called in my house. I started off by doing a quick doodle of a butterfly shape, then refined it a bit, cut 3 out of medium thick white card and set to with the pva and glitter.I left them to totally dry overnight and then added some flat backed pearls for the bodies.
I used a cream textured dl card and added a 3cm wide strip of pastel striped paper from my stash across the middle, stuck the flowers on with foam pads and added the sentiment which is from a freebie magazine set. I didn't want the butterflies to be flat so i slightly bend their wings up and stuck them to the card at a tilt with super fast tacky glue.
I am really happy with this card, and don't really know why as it looks quite plain and simple, but i really like it.
I would like to enter it into these challenges:
