I ♥ Promarkers Challenge 31 and 32

Hi everyone. Sorry I haven't been around for a while again, we had some more bad news. Hubby's dad died suddenly last week of a heart attack! It's not even 4 months since I lost my mum yet, which has made it even worse. My poor kids have just lost 2 grandparents within 3 months of each other. The funeral's on Monday, but it's going to be quite upbeat as that's what my FIL would have wanted.

Anyway, onto this week's challenge at I ♥ Promarkers. Wynneth has drawn a fab sketch for us to follow with an optional theme of 'Rip it Up'.
Our sponsor is Simon Says Stamp, with the prize being $15 to spend in their online store. They'll even pay the p&p!!

For my DT card this week, I've used a fab Sugar Nellie stamp called Rock Idol, coloured of course with Promarkers. All edges have been inked with Walnut Stain and Aged mahogany Distress Inks. The dp is BasicGrey Boxer and Kraft, as well as Creative Imaginations cream Music sheet. All have been torn, distressed and inked with BasicGrey and Tim Holtz distressing tools. The bottom sheet has also had some Gesso added. Lastly, I added some metal distressed brads (with prongs removed). All on Kraft Bazzill 6 x 6" cardstock.

I'm entering this card into these challenges:

Gingerloft Challenge 1 - Anything Goes
The ABC Challenge - D is for distressing

Now onto last week's I ♥ Promarkers challenge card that I wasn't able to post at the time.

Last week's challenge at I ♥ promarkers was Transport. (it's now finished, I just wasn't able to post my card at the time).
I've used a Kanban stamp from their Retro Cars set. I've coloured with Promarkers and then 3D'd the image, trying to make it look quite shabby and vintage. The sentiments are from the same stamp set, stamped with Black Soot Distress ink on Kraft Bazzill, punched with circle and scallop circle punches, and edged with Walnut Stain DI. The dp is by K & Co. including the fair sheet and tickets, which have all been distressed. I've added Glossy Accents onto the card windscreen and lights. The buttons and cord are from stash.

I'm entering this card into these challenges:
