The 'I love promarker' challenge is a great sketch... will be using it again i'm sure, especially as i must get on with christmas cards!!!
The challenge this week at 'Passion for promarkers' is to use 'Prussian and Pumpkin' with a halloeen theme.
I used my favourite 2 gorguss girls.... these 2 are my twins... one sitting sweet and quiet, the other having a strop!!! The haunted house and the pumpkin are from 'Tanda stamps' I stamped and masked the girls and house to make a scene, coloured them with promarkers, coloured the strip across the middle with prussian to match, the pumpkin was cut out and added on foam.
The promarkers used are, prussian, pumpkin, blush, pastel pink, ice grey 1/3 and 5.

The picture on the right shows the girls and house in close up so you get a better look at the detail and how the scene was made with masking.

Rainbow lady.... my guest designer week

This week at 'RAINBOWLADY'S' challenge... the link is in my side bar... i am the guest designer!!!!
I spent ages trying to think of a theme... not easy when my challenge is number 72!!! But then it hit me... DRAGONS.... or even dragonflies... just something dragonish.
I made 2 atcs... very different kinds of dragons, the one on the right is a stamp of unknown origin... sorry.... stamped onto parchment, coloured with sakura pens and highlighted with mica... cut out... what a job!!! mounted onto a piece of oriental looking card, and finished with a charm and chinese coin.
The one below is the dragon and castle from joanna sheens messy rabbit collection... hes so cute and the castle is very 'usable'... i stamped the castle on to an atc size piece of water colour paper i'd let the girls colour blue... then coloured the castle with water colour pencils, i stamped the dragon, coloured him with water colour and metallic pencils and made him a little stand so he is mounted in front of the castle... i put a ribbon round his neck with a charm on.... the charm fell off without me noticing before i took the pic.. i see!!!!
Anyhow ... thats it... please go over and have a go at doing something dragon... there is a prize this week... have fun... i did.

stampin for the weekend

The challenge at 'stampin for the weekend' this week is 'ALTER SOMETHING'.
I had this lovely little wooden box just sitting waiting for me to do something with it... and a friend staying who has nowhere to put the 'junk' out of his pockets at night so i made this.
I painted the box with ivory acrylic paint, then stamped directly on it it. I coloured the images with chalk and metallic pencils, i inked the edges and covered the sides of the lid with very thin cork as i figure this is the bit that will wear most.
The image on top and on the sides have been sprayed with matt vanish.
All the stamps used are from TANDA STAMPS.
