Yo' Fave Combo at Passion for ProMarkers

I've been waiting for this challenge to go live over at Passion for ProMarkers for AY-JEZ!! One of my most favourite things ever is colour combos. Especially favourite colour combos, and that's just what we've got for ya today!! ;) We wanna see your..


This extraordinary challenge was set by our lovely Coops. She knows how to get us excited! :)

You guys might be thinking I'ma hit you with a blue and brown combo. Well let me break it to ya.. YOU'D BE WRONG! Nuh uhh. Three of my favourite colours to work with when it comes to ProMarkers are Orange, Lime Green, and Turquoise. Take a little scroll back through my blog and you'll see it popping up time and time again! ;) Trust.

SO!! I had to go for it. I decided to colour up the adorable? cheeky? chic? Geeky!! GEEKY!! Geeky Mae from Some Odd Girl. I ain't gonna lie, I wanted her to look a little like me. So brown hair and blue eyes it was. Of course, dressed in my favourite colours. Heh.

I took this as an opportunity to practice my creases, as she has a few in her t-shirt and leg warmers, or are they boots? Anywho. I know I've got a loooong waaay to go yet, but I'm getting there. Each and every time I'm a little bit happier with how my images turn out! :)

So I sorta coloured her up to match papers from a PaperMania pack called.. lemme think.. Happy Days. I bought it a while a go and this is the first time I've used it. Bad Lou!! I know. Love the bottle caps and the graphic prints. Soo cool. Good job you get three sheets of each design. LOL!

I die cut some flowers from the grey chevron paper with a PTI die and misted them with some.. wait for it.. Aegean Sea mist. I KNOW!! I then added a green and orange brad to the two smaller flowers and dotted some liquid pearls here and there. Again, in a diagonal pattern.. that's like the fourth card now. Is this turning into some sorta rut?! Anywho. I stamped a Whimsy Postmark sentiment onto Pool Party ink from SU! and die cut it using the smallest pinking circle. 

This was the effort from a late night/ early morning (depending on how you look at it) session on Saturday night. Heh. I couldn't sleep so I thought I'd stay up and colour.

Some of you who have me on FB may have already seen that photo.. and if you've visited me earlier this morning you'll have seen Wryn on her very own card!!

That's all I got for ya today. I'd like to enter this card into these challenges:
- Glitter and Sparkle - Sentimental
- The Squirrel and the Fox - Anything Goes
- CMC Copic Challenge - Fave Colour Combo

Over and OUT. Be sure to stop by the Passion for ProMarkers blog and see which colours us colour addicts like to throw together! xo
