challenge 6

Last challenge of the year, here is what Sharon has to say over on the blog!!!

Challenge 6..we want some guest designers

Well done to all of you finalists, we should soon have a winner chosen by Letraset themselves.

We do have a bit of exciting news!...every month we look through all your blogs at all the stunning entries you all have. We thought it a good idea to offer the opportunity of a monthly guest design team place to each monthly winner running for 1 month only...a great way to showcase some of your stunning colouring!

So..this challenge is a little different from the last few!!..we want to see how creative you can be so...there's NO SKETCH to follow simply a few guidelines:

We want to see some spots and stripes on your cards..these can be the main focus of the card or a simple accent, the decision is yours.

This will be the last challenge before Christmas, we re-start again on the 13th January, our finalists from this challenge will be announced on the 12th Jan so can all entries be on here by the 11th Jan.

Of course..another fab prize of a set of Promarkers and bleed proof pad.! (colours may differ to those in the photograph)

I ♥ ProMarkers sketch #5

Hello everyone, here for you this month is another brilliant sketch to follow and as always you are allowed to use any colours to colour your cards.
This month we could also use any colours we wanted.

Ok I have used
Skin= satin and sun kissed pink
hair= apricot honeycomb and terracotta
dress= ruby red, and to get my shading I went over the areas i wanted darker.
books= marsh green and olive green
and a white highlighter pen.
Basic grey papers and a peel-off from my stash and a lovely whiff of joy image.
Thanks for stopping by my blog check out the rest of the design teams cards.

I ♥ ProMarkers #4

Welcome to another challenge at I love Promarkers, we have another fabulous sketch to play with and remember you can use any colours to colour your image with.

Here is a close up of the sugar nellie stamp, since getting the new colours i have changed my skin tones to Satin and Sun Kissed Pink.

Here are the pens i have used, i did not have maroon so made a sub with plum....all the pens before the white highlighter pen are the extra ones i have used for shading, skin and shoes.

And last but not least is the fabby sketch for you to play with.
