Passion for ProMarkers Challenge

This week over at Passion for ProMarkers we have a fabulous sketch for you. The challenge is being sponsored by Joanna Sheen and the prizie is a £10 voucher.

This is the wonderful sketch that we're looking forward to seeing what you come up with !

For my card I used a gorgeous image from the Sketching Stamper. This little fella is exactly what I wanted for my other half's birthday next month. He's a keen amateur photographer and the kingfisher is his number one subject at the moment. I've cut the image out with a square Nestability and sponged some Broken China DI around the edge before removing the die. I've used the same ink on the background piece of card and then stamped with Paper Artsy stamps with the same ink.

The embossed panel is a Tim Holtz embossing folder and I've rubbed Broken China DI over the top of it. The circles are a PaperArtsy stamp which I've stamped onto Grunge Paper then rubbed Broken China DI over the top and cut out then added an eyelet in the centre.

The poppers are Tim Holtz Ideaology and the ribbon is from my stash. The mosaic paper is a scrap piece left over from a Cricut paper pad, how lucky was that, it was just big enough !

I'm also entering this card in the By the Cute and Girly challenge of Animal Antics.

I hope you get chance to join us this week and look forward to visiting you !
