Passion for Promarkes

Morning Peeps, wet and windy - again, so hope lots of you are using the excuse for some serious crafting activity.......or are you all counting your pennies out ready for the NEC ?

Over at Sir Stampalot central (stand H05) it's a hive of activity packing and loading ready for the big event, as it is at Stamp Addicts (stand H30) and I'm sure lots of other locations around the UK. And come next week those of us lucky enough to go to the NEC will be bursting with inspiration all rushing to show off our new goodies on our makes........but with empty purses what else will we be able to do ?

Three challenges here, a great sketch from Tina at Everybody Art Challenges, and Passion for Pormarkers who have the colour theme of 'Grass and Canary' and wow do these two colours look great together and Creative Card Crew who want to see 'Ribbons and Gems'.

On to my card, a bit of a busy one for me, but it's sort of growing on me. My image is Sarah Kay Rose Garden, stamped with versafine black and embossed with detail clear and coloured with the two required Promarkers. The DP is Doodlebug and Basic Grey and the border punch Fiskars Threading Water. I made the three roses from the same DP and for a change I added some pearl stamens which I think works quite well. Leaves are punched from my new L-Em Ashe Tree Family 2 punch which I told you about yesterday. The little birdie and butterfly are from Penny Black 30- 034 and the flowers next to the image are from the Tilda range but afraid I have no idea of the code.

  17. Gorgeous and very pretty card Brenda. I love the Sarah Kay, they take me back further than I want to say, when I used them for decoupage.
    What day will you be going to the NEC? I'm probably going on Thursday but could be subject to change.
    Love, Pat x x

  18. Oh Wow, Brenda. I see I've missed loads of fabulous posts over the past few days and as I'm busy getting ready for my hols at the end of the week I haven't time to leave a comment on them all, Tsh!

    The last few posts have some of the loveliest makes I've seen recently. I love the penguins and the white card is just gorgeous.

    This lovely Sarah Kay card is beautiful too and somehow those lovely images call out for lots of pretty embellishments don't they?
