Use 3 patterned papers

Hi crafters,
I'm on holiday this week so I hope Mr Blogger is behaving today!

It's time for a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers and our lovely Jacky has chosen the theme 'Use 3 patterned papers'.  We are kindly sponsored by Digital Stamp Boutique and they are offering the lucky winner a £10.00 voucher to use in their online store.  I love all their images and so this is a wonderful prize to win so make sure you join us for this challenge.


I was lucky enough to use one of their fab images called 'Harry and Beer' and this is a Birthday card I've made for my brother.

I've coloured Harry with my promarkers and all the patterned papers are from Lisa's CD's. - all Lisa's papers are fab and they all co-ordinate perfectly!
I made some bunting with the same papers and inked the edges with some Tim Holtz distress inks, Some banners and matching buttons (always handy for the men cards!!) and the card was done!

So why not join in with this nice and easy challenge and remember, you can enter any type of creation - it doesn't have to be a card.  To be eligible for the draw. just make sure you use your Winsor and Newton products and of course, follow the theme.  
I look forward to visiting your lovely blogs and seeing all your gorgeous creations!  Thanks for dropping by,
hugs, Karen xx

Add Pearls

Hi crafters,
We're flying through the year now aren't we and it's time for another new challenge at Passion for Promarkers.  This week's challenge has been chosen by our lovely Elaine and it's 'Add Pearls' - a nice and easy challenge!  I think I probably add pearls to every card I make!!
We are kindly sponsored by Uniko Stamps this week and they are offering the lucky winner 1 stamp set (in stock).

I've made a Graduation card for my friend's daughter and I've used this gorgeous image from Saturated Canary called 'Grad Girl'.  I decided on a simple gold and black colour scheme and added a lot of black glitter to the mortarboard hat (like you do!)!  

I embossed one of the background layers and added a scroll tied with black ribbon to match the image!  I also added a tassel which I attached with a brad to match the tassel on the mortarboard!!  I added a few pearls here and there (of course) and found some gold ribbon as the finishing touch.

So why not join in with this week's great challenge!  You can enter using any type of creation, it doesn't have to be a card.  Just remember to use your Winsor & Newton products to be eligible for the prize draw.
I look forward to seeing your lovely creations.  
Thanks for dropping by,
hugs, Karen xx
