Ribbon Girl Challenge #12

The challenge on the Ribbon Girls blog is Lime and know I struggle with purple so was so challenged, why not pop over HERE and have a go..

I have used the gorgeous digi stamps from SJ at Little musings, find them here. Coloured with my Promarkers yet again, so love colouring at the mo. Papers are really old Ki Memories I think, some chipboard snowflakes from me stash, gorgeous white feather behind the image, think it gives it a floaty effect, also added bling and sparkle wouldn't be Christmas without it. The message is an old wooden stamp not sure where from but a great font.

Happy Monday

Why or why am so tired after going to bed really early.........Well I have dragged myself out of bed, and thought I would share another card while having a cuppa. But first I have join Shimelle class Pretty Paper Party, I'm hoping it will get me back into scrapbooking.......cant remember when I last did a layout (sorry cant find the link but check out her blog here )

Heres the card, I'm not sure where the image has come from as was bought in sale last winter.........the papers are from lilibee design "jingle" 6x6 pad, muted more vintage colours. Think the message is from "stampedous"
added chipboard snowflakes from an old "scrapbook nook" kit, bling and organza ribbon. I coloured behind message with my promarkers to match in with the image. 

I have list this card on ebay. Find it here

10 things

Welcome to 10 things.............I keep forgetting to post my 10 things, this month I was determined to keep up. As I have been using my Promarkers to death lately thought I would list my 10 favourite colours I use regularly.

1. blush....great for skin
2. pastel pink...use for cheeks and highlights on skin
3. ivory.....use this as a base quite often
4. cool grey 2......use this for shadows, add over colours too
5. buttercup......great base for blonde hair
6. sandstone.......great base for brown hair
7. pear green.......just love the colour
8. rose pink
9. power blue
10. duck newest addition
need to add 11. crimson using this a lot with my christmas cards

how do you store your Promarkers or pens?..........mine are just in a box but spend ages raking about looking for the colours I need. All ideas are greatly received.

I promised last week a few cards using the amzing new digi stamps from "Little Musings"...I coloured images with promarkers, added a few dies cuts and punched bits.

Heres the first.

and another one............using same colour combo

I'll post more during the week, thanks for looking.

pretty in pink.

Todays offering combines two challenges. Firstly use sketch from Saturday Sketches and the challenge from LOTV was "let it snow"  The image of course comes from LOTV cooured with promarkers, papers are from K&Co and KI memories, but are quite old, snowflakes are cuttlebug and marianne designs and a piece of velvet ribbon from my stash.......and lots of sparkle. I also hand stitched on the card and message comes from  Personal Impression.

I have been rather busy making Christmas Cards, testing the water selling them on ebay..........and making a few mistakes along the way. 

Thursday, 6 October 2011

This is my first of a few Christmas card using the Christmas angel digi stamps from Little Musings, I've used some old papers from my stash and the sketch from Saturday Sketches the images, still struggling with purple, but think it kind of works.

Also can I pick your brains "what white pens do you recommend?" I've try the sakura white jelly roll pen, but not overly which ones work for you????
