I ♥ ProMarkers challenge 9

It's time for another challenge over on I ♥ ProMarkers , and this week we want to see animals on your cards, dragons and butterflies are allowed too ! We're also being sponsored by Joanna Sheen and there's a £10 voucher up for grabs ! Make sure you hop over and check out the fab DT creations.

I'm also entering this card for the following challenges:

The main image is a Mo Manning image, and I have to say this little fella is one of my favourites ! He's been shaded with Pro Markers and to add a little texture to him I've used a brown Watercolour Pencil and drawn random lines over his spines. I've cut him out with Labels 5 Nestabilities and shaded Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress inks around the edge before removing the die, then after with Tea Dye. I've embossed some white card with the Stylised Flowers embossing folder then rubbed Broken China Distress ink over the top. The background paper is Wisteria by Basic Grey and I've grunged this up a little with Faded Jeans.

The flowers started life as being very pale blue but I rubbed the Broken China Distress ink pad over them followed by Tea Dye. The pearls are coloured with Pro Markers. The sentiment and the background card is printed on my PC and the colours have been matched to the Pro Markers by a very clever lady called Josephine.
Well it's been a really wet miserable day today up to about 10 minutes before I left work and now we've got glorious sunshine ! I don't mind so much when it's that way round !
Thanks for looking
