Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge #45 with AquaMarkers

It's Friday & time for a new challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity! This week we want you to
1.Follow the sketch
2. Use pastel colours
3. Make a Hello card or gift.
I inked up Tilda Blowing Bubbles for this challenge. She's just gorgeous! I say that about all the Tildas don't I?!!

This is a first for me. This is my first card using the new styled Aqua Marker pens. I'm still practising, but I really like them. Obviously I need more time to get used to them, but you can get great tone & shading with them. They are much more like using Distress Inks than Promarkers.

The DPs are Magnolia Ink & the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I used Glossy Accents on the bubbles to give them a bit of reflection.
So I hope you'll head on over to the C4E blog & join us for this week's challenge. Please check out the fabulous work of my fellow D-Teamies, they have been excelling themselves yet again.
Thanks so much for looking,
Big Hugs,
Andie xx
