The reason i thought to give you my sticky scissor tip the other day was because i had just got some new stamps and was mounted them on some cling stuff, 4 new stamps from the whiff of joy city girl set yum yum lol
She looks like she is having a fab time, perals and gem coloured with a promarker to match.

A top tip for you!!

Now do say i never give you anything lol, but do you ever get sticky scissors?
now do not go and buy all the fancy stuff to remove it, just put some nail varnish remover on some kitchen roll and slide it up and down the blades and hey presto clean scissors.

These papers are By Basic grey and are part of a crimbo pack......but these are fine for everyday cards as not all the papers have Christmas stuff on them.
The flowers were white but i coloured them with my promarkers to match the girls top, you will notice i do that a lot lol
Hugs for now

Promarker Challenge #8

(click on image if you would like to enlarge it)
Welcome to challenge #1 as you will have seen a few changes have been made, we have some wonderful sponsors and this is now a weekly challenge.
So this week you have this lovely sketch to play with and you also need to use the colours pink and brown.......does not matter which shades you use.
We are being sponsored this week by the lovely Joanna Sheen.

On my card i used a lovely whiff of joy image called Charlotte with bird cage.
Parers and flowers etc. were from my stash and it was a left over piece of paper so i can not tell you who it is by sorry.
I have used Antique pink and sandstone for the clothes on the main image, going over areas to create the shading.
Apricot and terracotta for the hair, satin and sun kissed pink for the skin and pastel blue for the shading around the image, also used buttercup for the birdcage.

Have fun, and please check out the other design team members and show them some love!
