Passion for Promarkers and Sketch Saturday



All my photos come out faded - this cute Bugaboo digi Dino is lime green!

The current Passion for Promarkers Challenge is 'Prehistoric.' Well, I'm a lover of History and Time Team and Dinosaurs, so I had to go for it!

Only problem... no dino stamp. However, Bugaboo came to the rescue - I love how you can buy digis and just download them with no waiting! Though resizing and printing is a bit more of a faff than just using rubba.

The sketch from Sketch Saturday was ideal. I used Basic Grey 'Origins' papers, they seem to fit. I used a new Nestie, 'Wobbly rectangles' to die cut the image, and drew round the edge to give a narrow border. I also ran a Shabby Shutters Distress Ink pad round the edge. I did the same with the sentiment, which was a mag freebie.

I glossy accented his toes and heart, and the card candy has been coloured with Lime Green Promarker and stickled.

Even my hubby likes it! WIN!!

Thanks for looking, chaps. Only one more day to go before another holiday weekend! Huzza!!

luv, Mags x

Promarkers: Lime Green, Lime Zest, Soft Lime, Pastel Yellow, Ivory

He;s great, I really want to try promarkers!

Do you have a scanner? I often have more luck scanning my cards, but otherwise I go outside and get a fully sunny place to photograph my things, but it looks fine to me!
