Passion for Promarkers - Perfect Pearls...

Good morning, everyone!  My, where are these days going to?  Less than a week to go before it's Sincerely Yours Papercraft@Leigh Show!...
I always get the jitters before a show and tend to flap about a bit like a headless chicken, trying to make sure I've remembered everything!  I'm hoping to make some more new samples before the weekend so that I'll have plenty of ideas and inspiration to share with you all!

But before then, it's Tuesday, which means the start of another fantastic challenge over at Passion for Promarkers!  It's the lovely Nic (aka Coops) in the chair and she has chosen the easy theme of 'Perfect Pearls'.  This week we are sponsored by the fabulous DigiStamp Boutique who are offering one lucky winner a £10 voucher to their store....yes please!
Don't forget, to be in with a chance to win the prize, you MUST use your Letraset products (i.e. Pro/Flexmarkers, Aqua markers, Tria, Metallic or Neon markers)
 ...The lovely Sally-Ann gave us the opportunity to choose an image for our DT inspiration and I chose the pretty Shopping Kate.  The background is, believe it or not, the back of a Carling lager box, embossed with Embossalicious Floral Frenzy folder and inked with Vintage Photo DI. (The lager hasn't been drunk (We'd rather have tea!) but it was essential for me to have the box for crafty purposes, so it had to find a new home!)  The daisy paper is one from a Papermania pack...Garden Party, I think and the lovely aqua paper is from Prima Divine Collection.  The die cut is Spellbinders Labels Eleven - one of my favourite die shapes at the moment and then I used the centre die from a Marianne Doily die set to create the sun and added some of my favourite obsession...clouds!  I printed the sentiment and mounted onto my latest crafty purchase - Cheery Lynn's Horizon Fishtail Banners...
...The image was, of course, coloured with my Pro/Flexmarkers and here's the colour list I used :
Skin - Blush, Soft Peach, Coral
Hair - Nutmeg, Auburn, Saddle Brown, Rosewood
Top and shoes - Cocktail Pink, Watermelon, Antique Pink, Ruby
Trousers - Soft Aqua, Cool Aqua, Duck Egg, Surf Blue
Handbag - Cappuccino, Cinnamon, Cocoa
Dog - Cool Grey 1 & 3, Blender
I paper pieced the shopping bags with the yellow flower paper from the Scarecrow set of A Year in Cards and shaded with Mustard, blended out with Lemon Chiffon
To embellish, I used some yellow grosgrain ribbon, button, diamantes and pearls and then added some Liquid Pearl dots to the banner, sun, Kate's top and shopping bags and dotted here and there.

So, there we have it, another great challenge to join in with!  I hope you can find the time to play along and look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations!  Hop on over to the Passion for Promarkers blog to see what my talented teamies have been creating and I'll see you soon!
Take care, crafty hugs,
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges :
Add a Ribbon
Twos - I have two characters, two shopping bags and two clouds
For the Girls
CAS or Fussy
(This is a hard one! I do LOVE a good CAS card but in my own crafting can't help adding lots of layers and details but not in a fussy way!  If fussy is seen as lots of layers, then that's me, but if it means froo froo then I'm a clean and simple kinda gal! )
