Lots of Layers at PfP

Yoohoo there, Happy Tuesday!! Here to share my Passion for ProMarkers card this morning - thank you for stopping by. :) This is a pretty special card right here, in the sense that it's HUGE. Well, not huge to you seasoned card makers, but for a girl who sticks to 4.25x5.5" cards like.. religiously.. this was HARD. You know what? I had a blast making it, and once I got over the huge space I had to cover.. I couldn't stop. :)

Okay, nothing like making a mountain out of molehill now, is there? This is only 5.75x5.75", LOL!! Relax.

This week over at Passion for ProMarkers, Denise wants to see..

Lots of Layers

Very fun! :) Do you know the best thing about this type of challenge? It makes you step up your card, and that means.. using up scraps. For me anyway. :) All of those little bits you would probably just chuck away.. you find yourself picking up and experimenting with different shapes and positions on your card to try and make it look better.. and more layered. Yum.

 Oh, and our sponsor this week is DigiStamp Boutique who are offering up 6 digi images to the winner! ;)

Here's my take on this using the ever so cute Rosie with Cake from Lili of the Valley. I'm afraid I didn't write down the colours I used this time round - my head wasn't concentrating! Sorry. :( 

I've die cut the image using a Labels Eighteen and inked the edges using Victorian Velvet DI - I've then added doodles to my die cut and the edges of my card and patterned paper using a Regal Rose SU! marker. My most fave thing. Ever. I just think it ties everything together - and it's kinda OCD on my part. HA!

I've used some delicious papers from My Minds Eye Follow Your Heart - Be Happy collection. I could just buy up the WHOLE lot from My Minds Eye. Every collection they release just rocks my socks. Unfortunately my bank balance, nor my room would appriciate it! Anyway.. A pink, grey and subtle lemon colour is the combo here. I've created a gorgeous double bow with some pink twill stripe ribbon from The Ribbon Girl using my bow-easy and tied a little natural bakers twine around the knot to secure my little bear charm.

Arguably there are NINE layers on this card. See them all? I've used my little Slice to create the scalloped hearts and the '1' - using the scraps I was talking about earlier. See. :) Anyway, you guys can see everything that's going on, right? Click on the picture to make it larger. If you've got any questions just leave me a comment and I'll do my best to get back to ya! :)
