Passion for ProMarkers Challenge

It's time for another challenge over on Passion for ProMarkers and this week there's a fab sketch for you to follow as well as a theme of a card for a man.

The challenge this week is being sponsored by Whiff of Joy Stamps and the prize is a stamp of the winner's choice.

The main image is an Isabella's Sketchbook fab image which I've cut out using Nestabilities Large Labels. I've then blended Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint Distress Ink around the edge.

The background image is from The Graphics Fairy and I've printed it off as quite a large image then cut it up into the separate pieces, distressed the outside edges and used the same Distress Inks around the edge. The stamps used for the sentiment are from a set by Impression Obsession and has been cut out with the same Nestabilities and had the same ink treatment around the edge.

The thread is the Stampin' Up linen thread (which I've almost run out of - note to self to order some more !) and then I've run around the edge with my sewing machine.

I'm also putting this card in for the following challenges :

I hope you get chance to join in with the challenge this week and look forward to visiting you !
