I ♥ Promarkers Challenge 66 Animals

We are being sponsored by Crafty Emmas with the prize being £10 to spend in her fab online store.

This week I decided to make a tissue box. I got the instructions from a Magnolia Ink magazine.
The box has been made with Kraft card. The image is a Penny Black Hedgie called 'Hot Pants'!! He has been coloured with Promarkers, and die cut. The Kraft frame is a Marianne Design Creatables die cut, to which I've added red pearls on the centres of the embossed flowers. The dp is Anna Griffin, as is the sentiment stamp. I've die cut a butterfly from Kraft and added some red and green pearls to finish.

I'm entering my tissue box into these challenges:

Paper Romance Challenge 51 - Anything but a card
Craft Us Crazy Challenge 8 - Something new/favourite embellishment -(the Penny Black stamp is new to me, as is making a tissue box and butterflies are one of my favourite embellishments)
Crafts and me Challenge 35 - Anything Goes (optional Kraft)
Alota Rubber Stamps Challenge 59 - Check it out!! - (Anna Griffin dp)
OSAAT Challenge 62 - Anything Goes
Penny's Challenge 53 - Anything Goes
Penny Black at Allsorts May Challenge - Shape Up (no squares or rectangles - I know my project has rectangles in it but once it's all put together it's a different shape, so I think it'll be included, just let me know if you think otherwise and I'll remove it from the challenge)

I ♥ Promarkers Challenge 65 - Pink & Brown!

I spent all day yesterday in bed with what felt like a stomach virus. Feeling a bit better today so I thought I'd post this week's challenge for I ♥ Promarkers, then do a little blog hopping before going back to my bed.

Our challenge is to use the colours pink and brown. The sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish with the prize being either 5 digi stamps or 4 digi stamps and a paper set of the winner's choice.

The image I've used is called 'rain, rain, go away'. She's been coloured with Promarkers. I've paper pieced the curtains and 3D'd the flowers, then added a rainbow which I cut from some free papers out of a magazine. The sentiment is from TLC Creations which I've cut to the shape of a cloud. The papers are Wild Rose Studio Girly Polka Dots and Gorgeous Ginghams layered onto pink DCWV card. Other items used are a Martha Stewart punch, the gingham bow is also Martha Stewart, and pink pearls from stash. All on a 6 x 6" white card.

I ♥ Promarkers Challenge 64 - Song Title

We have a fun challenge for you this week at I ♥ Promarkers - your card has to have a song title. Mine is 'This Old Heart' by Rod Stewart!

Our sponsor is Joanna Sheen with the prize being £10 to spend in her fab online shop.

For my card I've used a Penny Black stamp called 'Heaven Knows', coloured with Promarkers and matted onto red Bazzill which has been die cut. I've also added some Stardust Stickles to the flowers and round the edges.

The dp is a Vintage pad from QVC. The dotty paper has been faux stitched, distressed and edged with a red Promarker, and the brown swirl layer has been distressed and edged with brown Versacolour.

The brown shaped card is from QVC which I've cut down. I've added a punched border with a Martha Stewart deep edge punch. The swirl has been cut with my Cricut (which I must start using more), the red pearls are Kanban, and the lock and key brads are by Woodware. Cardstock is Kraft Bazzill 6 x 6".
