Fantasy and Flowers



This is one of my new stamps from Crafts and Me! It's another of Ching Chou Kuik's gorgeous images and like all the others I've got, it's wonderful to colour. Naturally, I used my Promarkers. One day soon, I'll have to have a go with my Twinkling H2Os for these stamps too, but then again, the Promarkers are just so much fun! I've highlighted her jewellery and some other detail with Sakura Stardust pen.

The sentiment is also from Sweet Pea Stamps. The flowers and leaves were made using various punches, and in the case of the largest flower layer, one of my Spellbinders blossom nesties (slightly altered to separate and round the petals a little). All the layers were cut from white card and coloured with Promarkers, except the smallest layers on the larger flowers which use Sakura Stardust pen, and they were shaped with various embossing tools, and finished them all with a sticky gem.

The backing paper's another one of my current favourites - from My Mind's Eye and those colours I just love!

This card fulfills the requirements for two challenges - Passion for Promarkers which calls for fantasy/mythology and I Love Promarkers which calls for make-your-own flowers.
