Happy Bank Holiday! Is it raining where you are? We have typical BH weather - wet, grey and cold! So I have spent the day clearing and chucking-out, and a bit of cardmaking in between!
This little Tilda is one of my favourites! She looks so surprised at the butterfly that's landed on her gorgeous bow.
I used some of the new *Summer Limited Edition Promarkers, they are such pretty colours I just couldn't resist them. The challenge at A Passion for Promarkers is 'Light and Bright' - either use bright papers and soft coloured pens or vice-versa. I went for some bright papers by Raspberry Road that were free with 'Quick Cards' which are also quite shiny, though my naff camera skillz haven't really picked them up.
Following an example by the lovely Jules I used checked paper from the stack instead of plain card for matting. The swirl is a Marianne die, the cute butterflies are a Woodware punch. I coloured them with Promarkers to match the image and added tiny pearls by Whiff of Joy to the bodies. The swirl also has pearls.
The sentiment is LotV, also coloured with Promarkers.
The sketch is from Chocolate, coffee and cards but I had to turn it on its side to make room for Tilda. And I don't know if the swirl and butterflies match the sketch closely enough!
What do you think, guys?
I'm also entering the Just Magnolia Challenge which is 'Anything Goes' with an option of 'swirls and pearls.'
It was great how all these challenges fell together really nicely and kick-started old Mr Mojo, who this week hasn't been very active!
I hope you're all having a relaxing time, and my sympathies go out to those of you who are working today!
Thanks for looking!
love Mags B x
