Passion for Promarkers

The colours for this weeks Passion for Promarkers are "Pastel Pink and Cool Aqua plus a sketch". The colours work really well together and the pink is almost a salmon colour.

I have gone botanical and used my new Magenta 14315.0 from Sir Stampalot a week or so back which I promised to do samples with.......well I did manage a couple and then sort of got sidetracked with more new goodies, so thought I should give it another airing.

I guess using Promarkers this way does not offer the opportunity to blend them in the same way as on a larger area, but I quite like the effect and they colours match this My Minds Eye DP so well. After stamping with versafine back and embossing with detail clear, I cute the circles out with Nesities through the bug, stamping the smaller flower several times more to cut out and decoupage.

The sentiment is from Hero CL288........yes I used one from the set yesterday as well after rediscovering the set filed in a wrong stamp drawer. The scallop edge was made using Fiskars threading water punch, some ribbon added, pearls here and there and I also diamond glazed the large flowers. Oh nearly forgot, leaves yet again using my new L-Em punch from the same source as the stamps.
