I’m a dreamer


The challenge at Passion for ProMarkers was to use any colours but there was a recipe to follow: 3 different shapes,2 papers and 1 ribbon.

I hope I’ve got this right as I’m not that good at sticking to cooking recipes.

To use the 2 papers by K & Co I decided to split them diagonally into triangles.The image was coloured with some new and old colours along with the Blender.White gel pen has been used to brighten the eyes.It already had a rectangular frame so I cut it out and mounted it onto some papermania Textured card.The stamp is Dreamer by Sugar Nellie.Organza ribbon has been used so that it didn’t obscure the divide between the papers.A circle ribbon brad with scaps of the same papers cut with Nestabilities behind for the third shape.The sentiment is from a large wooden boxed set  and has been stamped onto a triangle shaped tag.A large circular eyelet has been added with my Crop-a-Dile.

Apologies to the Passion for Pro Markers DT.I did mean to post this last night but I’m ashamed to say I fell asleep as I’m feeling a little under the weather.

This card was also created with several other challenges in mind.

C.R.A.F.T.Challenge:What does the photo suggest to you? 

inspiration autumn colours

For me it sums up the glorious blue skies and sunshine we’re experiencing at the moment,the last of the fading flowers,the changing in the colours of the leaves and it being a time to reflect on the the Summer just passed.Hope I’ve managed to capture that in my card.                                                                                  

By The Cute and Girly: Autumn Glory.So the colours and inspiration behind the card fall into that catagory.

Crafty Calendar Challenge : Autumn.There is an optional extra of plants and vegetation which is included in my choice of backing paper. 

Crafty Cardmakers : Ribbons and Fibres.This challenge site is aimed at newer cardmakers and bloggers so I guess I come under the latter.Still trying to get the hang of this blogging malarky!!

Caardvarks : Create a card using ribbon in a wonderful way.Having used the ribbon to tie on the tag and thread through the brad I’m hoping this is wonderful enough.

Stamp Something : Brown Plus Something.Think this counts.

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge : Autum Colours.Yes, they’re there. 

Tanda Teaser : Russet and Gold.Colours work for this one too.
