Alcohol Marker Swap

Well, I had to make 3 cards for an Alcohol Marker swap. I used my newly bought Promarkers and coloured a dragon, Tilda and Popcorn. Here are the results. The dragon is my favourite.
The backing paper on this one wa taken from a free CD that I had with a magazine. I love the shape that the Nestabilities make but I don't have a set. So I found this template in a magazine and scanned it into my computer. From there I made 3 sizes of it. There was quite a big difference in the sizes so I just trimmed slightly larger to get a layer.

The backing paper for Popcorn was taken from the Popcorn Floral CD. I tried a slightly different method of matting and layer using a strip of card the same colour of the base card and edging it with some scalloped scissors.

Tilda was mounted onto some paper from my stash and the corners trimmed with a Fiskars corner punch. I rounded the corners on the mirri board. The 'Just for You' is a Letraset rub on.

Busy, busy, busy......

The parents of one of my youngest son's friends are getting married this weekend. I made the following card with the Forever Friends wedding stamp and yes, coloured it with Promarkers..........gotta get my money's worth, lol. You can't see it very well from this scan but I have stamped a wee flourish stamp with a Galaxy Gold Brilliance ink pad on the brown card, just to give it a little 'something'.

Birthday Cards

So, next week is a busy week with 3 birthdays all on the same day!

The first card is for my son, Lewis off his brother. It's Popcorn Bear and Sofflé fishing. Stamped with a black versafine ink pad and coloured with Promarkers.

The next card is for my niece. Again, Popcorn Bear on a present. Stamped and coloured as above.

These are my first endeavours with Promarkers.....I'm sure I'll get better!
