Passion For Promarker - Hand Made Flowers

It's Tuesday & time to play along with us at Passion For Promarkers. My lovely D-Teamie, Michele has set the challenge this week & wants to see cards with hand made flowers. Our very own Emma is our sponsor. Have you visited her store yet? She has some gorgeous goodies.

She is very generously offering this fab pack of Aquamarkers to this week's lucky winner,

I used another of my Lil Loloita images for this card. I just love the big doe eyes! This is 60's Ivy. She is now available in the UK at Bunny Zoe's.

I used Promarkers for this challenge & my DPs are Basic Grey. My flowers were made from the same paper, with a nestabilities die. I curled the edges & added buttons. I also did a little doodling, though, quite frankly, I'm not so keen on that bit.

I also added some glossy accents to the boots belt & hairband, as the 60s retro vibe, to me, always conjures up images of patent & plastic!

My sketch is based on this month's challenge at Bunny Zoe's.

The theme this week at the Lil Lolita Boutique is 'Buttons'

And at Secret Crafters this week, 'Anything Goes'

So I would like to enter this in to those challenges as well.

Please pop on over to the PFP blog to see the fabulous creations of my team mates & show them some love!

Thanks so much for looking,
Big Hugs,
Andie xx

i Hun this is stunning just love those colours together. As for the NEC, yes I am going think I will be on LOTV Stand and Crafters Companion stand. Last year Bev and I got a good deal at the Hilton Hotel which is on the outskirts of the NEC site there were lots of crafters there, I haven't booked anywhere yet, but will most prbably stay at the same one again. I love the NEC but it is busy. I will be at Ally Pally this weekend.
