Passion for Promarkers - Summer Lovin'...

Good morning, lovely peeps and a happy Tuesday to you all! It's the start of a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers this morning and this week, it's my turn to host! I have chosen the theme 'Summer Lovin', so I want to see all your LOVE related cards - Weddings, Anniversaries, With Love or just to say you love someone!  We are being sponsored by Polkadoodles who are offering 2 digis as this week's prize...

Don't forget to be eligible to win the prize, you MUST use your Letraset mediums and follow the theme.

For my card I used an All Dressed Up image that was available as a free download in conjunction with Simply Cards magazine.  I coloured with my Pro/Flemarkers and decided it would be a perfect opportunity to get ahead and make hubby's Anniversary card!  My Tea Rose Flexmarker was running out and gave a bit of a watercolour effect to the blending on the heart - which I quite liked, so decided to leave it!
Hearts - Tea Rose, Dusky Rose, Antique Pink, Ruby, Burgundy
Scrolls - Linen, Champagne
Flowers - Blue Pearl, Cornflower, Amethyst, Canary, Linen, Champagne, Sandstone, Meadow Green, Leaf Green
I added some silver peel off waste dots (I tend not to use the peel off borders, peel off anything to be honest, but the dots come in rather handy!) and a touch of crystal glitter.  Sentiments, pearls and a printed insert finished the card off...
 ...I had also made this wedding card for a recent commission but thought that the soft colouring of the image didn't show very well (so quickly made up my other card!) The image was coloured with Linen, Champagne, Dove Grey, Cool Grey 3, Dusky Pink, Meadow Green and Blender, to give a very subtle hint of colour.  The card base was made using 4 Parisian Accent border die cuts  and 4 corners, attached to a 14 x 14cm card blank.  I used Embossalicious Floral Frenzy and Crafts Too dots embossing folders, inked with Antique Linen DI and my trusty Spellbinders Floral Ovals (they're still a pig to get out of the die, even with wax paper - but I love them!) WOC flowers, Martha Stewart clay frame and a lovely heart charm to embellish.  So there we are, 2 for the price of 1!
I am hoping to get some housework done now that all my design work is completed, as my poor house has been so neglected these last couple of months!  Hope you can find the time to join in with my challenge this week and I look forward to visiting you all and leaving some love!  Don't forget to have a look what my fabulous teamies have been making for your inspiration, by hopping over to the Passion for Promarkers blog.

Well these are both so gorgeous each in their own individual way, so different form each other but so lovely too. Your colouring on both is magnificent and good for you for being able to get ahead. Hope the housework goes as planned - necessary but not the most enjoyable of tasks.
