Passion for Promarkers - Create a Scene

Good morning, dear Blogger friends and welcome to another fabulous Challenge for Passion for Promarkers!  Our theme this week has been set by the lovely Lou and she would like us to 'Create a Scene', i.e. cloud background, etc.  For this challenge, we are sponsored by the wonderful Digi Stamp Boutique who are offering one lucky winner the chance to choose 6 digi images from their shop (thanks, Sally-Ann!), such a great prize!
Don’t forget you must use your Letraset products (i.e. promarkers, flex markers, aqua markers, tria markers, metallic markers or neon markers) and of course follow the theme.
...So, without further ado, here's what I made...
...I kept the card quite CAS, making a feature of the image and background scene.  I am enjoying playing around with my images at the moment, so this one is Saturated Canary's Jules, but with a bit missing!
...I coloured Jules with my Pro/Flexmarkers, but left out some of the image, then cut around to get this...
Here's the colours I used for all you Letraset fans :
Skin : Blush, Dusky, Sunkissed Pink
Hair : Ivory, Vanilla, Mustard, Gold, Sandstone, Caramel
Dress : Red, Crimson, Berry, Burgundy
Tights : Soft Aqua, Duck Egg, Surf Blue
Shoes : Satin, Tan, Cinnamon
Cat : Blue Grey 1, Cool Grey 3, Pastel Pink, Cocktail Pink
...I created the sky background using Glacier Blue, Dolphin Blue and Cloud Blue and added grass near the base using a selection of greens (I just kept adding strokes until I was happy with it).  I created the fence using my SB Parisian Accents border die, some thin strips of white card and the border waste.  Finally, I embellished with a touch of glitter, some small punched flowers and a satin bow for her hair.
I haven't had a go at background scenes very much, so I was quite pleased with how this turned out and am starting to gain a bit more confidence to have a go - I think creating the scene separately and adding a cut out image makes it easier to have a go as you won't ruin your coloured image if you bodge it up! (As I did the first time around!)  So go on, get your pens out and have a play around at making background scenes, you might just surprise yourself and don't forget to link it up to play along with our fab challenge this week!  Remember to hop over to the Passion for Promarkers blog to see what my wonderful teamies have been up to and grab some inspiration!
Thanks for looking and enjoy your week!  Hugs,
