I ♥ ProMarkers Challenge

Oops ! I should have posted this yesterday and it clean went out of my head ! So, as the saying goes, better late than never ! It's time for another challenge over on I ♥ ProMarkers, and for me it's the last one for a while. I've got a heavy workload for the next few months so I'm having to scale my crafting back quite considerably. So onto this week's challenge which is Pearls and Swirls and is being sponsored by Pollycraft. There are 5 images up for grabs too !

The image I've used is called Shona Snow Day and has been shaded with PM's. I've then cut the image out with my new Labels 14 Nestabilities, then sponged some Weathered Wood DI around the edge. I've used a Versamark pen and white embossing powder around the edge of the larger shape. The background has been made using the Polka Dots background stamp from Stampin' Up. I've used white embossing powder and then rubbed Adirondack Stonewashed ink over the top.

The snowflakes are a Martha Stewart punch and the swirls are a Sizzlet die which I've added some stickles to.

I hope you have fun with this challenge !

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

    I'm feelin' your pain on cutting back on crafting. I'm doing that too and is it ever tough! I'm down to two weekly challenges and one bi-weekly. My DH is going to retire in the next year and we are going to try to get the house ready to put on the market. That's a lot of refurbishing, cleaning, thinning down of possessions and general upheavel. Then when we do put the house up for sale, I'll have to keep it spotless - yikes - cleaning and orderliness is not something I embrace. I'd much rather sit in my craft room and ignore the chaos outside!
