Passion for Promarkers - Tweetmas Wishes...

Good morning, Blogger buddies and a Happy November 1st to you all!  We're getting ever closer to the end of 2016 and the big event that happens just before...maybe I should start to get myself into gear, thinking about presents and cards...or maybe not?! I have to say 2016 has not been a crafty year for me and I have struggled to find inspiration and motivation throughout, but I will persevere and hope that 2017 gives me a fresh outlook...
But for today, I DO have inspiration...it's Tuesday which means another fab challenge starts over at Passion for Promarkers! This week it's the lovely Hazel who is choosing our challenge theme and she's gone for 'Tweetmas Wishes' so we'd like to see a Christmas birdie somewhere on your creations...
We're being sponsored by All Dressed Up who are offering one lucky winner a choice of 2 digis from their online store...how cool is that?! Just remember to be in with a chance of winning you must follow the challenge theme and use your Letraset mediums (Can we also ask that you tell us where you've used your medium, for example, 'coloured with Promarkers')...
We were lucky enough to receive an image to play with and I had the cute Tra, La, La...
I decided to go with my favourite style of Clean and Simple and created a doodled frame and sentiment in Photoshop. I kept the image quite large and die cut some snowflakes from the image layer...
...I matted onto a lilac snowflake paper and coloured my image with Pro/Flexmarkers, then finished with a bit of bling...et voila! I really quite enjoyed colouring this sweet image and have been playing around with some stamps...yes, you heard right...stamps...that I bought off the lovely Mel in workshop - they're cute little Stamping Up critters and they're actually quite fun to colour! Trying to make some quick and easy cards to maybe stock in a local shop...we'll see, if all goes to plan?!
Right, off to catch up on some ironing and pray that my little man has a good day in school today...trouble with bullying again :(
Hugs,
Lisa x

Happy November dear Lisa. This is such a cute card, I love the images..so pretty and as always so expertly coloured. You have such an artistic flair...don't do yourself down, your work is beautiful. I'm so sorry to hear about your little man...growing up is really tough sometimes and children can be so very cruel. Keep strong and keep loving and all will be well. Huge hugs xx

Sorry I haven't visited sooner or more often Lisa, time has not been my friend of late although I have seen all your creations in my reading list and as always they are fabulous. You say Mr Mojo has been absent but I think you are being hard on yourself, all your designs are so beautifully thought out and presented. I love how you have die cut the snowflakes from the image layer to allow the beautiful patterned paper to peek through.
