Passion for Promarkers - Summer Days...

...Now that's wishful thinking!?!  Summer seems to have deserted us just now in place of dreary, grey skies and drizzle!  Our May spell of nice weather seems such a long time away now...let's hope the Summer holidays is a better affair!
Well, another Tuesday has come around again...though I'm sure somebody has put us on x2 fast forward as they seem to be coming around much quicker...we have a new challenge starting over at Passion for Promarkers and the lovely Julie has given us a theme of 'Summer Days'...think maybe sunshine and beaches, and ice cream, or all three...
...This week we are being sponsored by the wonderful Digistamp Boutique, who are offering one lucky winner a £10 voucher to their store...which I'm sure you'll have no problem in spending!  The lovely Sally Ann gave us a choice of image to work with, so I went with Rosie and Ice Cream...isn't she a cutie?!...
...I decided to go with ice cream, pastel tones and paper pieced Rosie's dress too.  She was coloured with my Pro/Flexmarkers - want the colour list?  Then here it is :
Skin - Blush, Dusky Pink, Coral (my favourite skin combo)
Hair - Sandstone, Caramel, Cocoa
Hairband and trousers - Blue Pearl, Cornflower, China Blue
Dress - Gold, Mustard, Blender
Bucket - Cerise, Shocking Pink, Vermilllion (love this bright pink combo)
Shoes and spade - Meadow Green, Apple
Sand - Linen, Champagne, Tan
Of course, I HAD to add a few clouds and a pretty twine bow and button to finish off. So, that's it!  What are you waiting for?  Why not get out your Letraset pens and join in?  If we can't have Summer outside, we can surely have it in our crafting!! Don't forget to check out what my talented teamies have been cmaking for your inspiration over at the Passion for Promarkers blog and I look forward to being cheered up by all your sunny creations!
Have a terrific Tuesday, hugs,
Lisa x
