Button it Up at Passion for ProMarkers

A fortnight since I posted on my blog. I'm getting a little ridiculous, am I not?! Yikes!!

Well after Monday nights stock take at work I was in no fit state to type up my post for Passion for ProMarkers. So here I am on Tuesday night, only a few hours late. You gonna let me off?!

It was my turn to pick a theme this week, and I went with


I want you to break out those buttons. I know you've got them, and if you're anything like me, you hoard them. Use them up. You'll feel better for it. I promise.. ;)

Here is the card I created using the gorgeous Wryn in the Fall from Tiddly Inks.

I've coloured her up in blacks, blues and a hint of lemon to match my papers from My Minds Eye. I created this card for my Mam for Mother's Day. She isn't a massive fan of pink and girly stuff, so I went with a more.. neutral card. She loves walking and she's always wrapped up in her coat and scarf, so this Wryn was perfect! :)

The sentiment is from a LOTV set which I have stamped onto some Bazzill Bling cardstock (although you can't tell from the photos) with some Brilliance Graphite Black ink. Crisp. ;)

As for the buttons, I've used them to create some movement across the card - kinda like a gust of wind which Wryn has been caught up in. Starting in the top right and crossing down over/under the image to the bottom left, containing the sentiment circle in the same line. I used a total of.. FIVE buttons on this card. Hell, for me, that's quite an achievement. Can ya beat me? I challenge ya! ;)
