The challenge this week at Passion for ProMarkers is books. This can be an image of a book, a page from a book used as backing paper or a card inspired by a book. You choose ! The challenge is being sponsored by Stampeezee and the prize is £10 gift voucher.
I've used the sketch over on Card Patterns for this card. The image I've used is a Serendipity stamp which I've stamped with Memento black ink then shaded with ProMarkers. I've cut it out with Deckled Edged Nestabilities and then blended Corduroy Distress Ink around the edge and mounted onto blue textured card from Stampin' Up. I've blended Faded Jeans Distress Ink around the edge of the blue card and also tipped it with black ink. The background text page is from an old book I bought from a charity shop. I bought the book with the sole intention of using it in card projects, I still feel uncomfortable ripping a page out of it though ! I used Tea Dye Distress Ink to watercolour the page then blended Vintage Photo around the edge. I used an EK Success punch down one side of the page.
The text is also a Serendipity stamp which I've stamped onto cream shrink plastic, cut out and heated. It still fascinates me watching it curl up and then flatten out again !
The backing paper is 29th Market Street I think, I only had a small piece left but it matched the colour scheme perfectly. I've used the reverse side to make the tag piece and used linen thread through the button, adding some faux stitching for interest.
Hope you're able to join us this week, my fingers are still recovering from the amount of entries from last week !
Thanks for looking
