Good morning guys. I usually start off my Passion for ProMarkers post with some boring weather craic, but knowing that the south of the country is in an absolute state due to flooding, I think I'm gonna hold my tongue on this one. I seriously couldn't believe the scenes I was witnessing on the TV last night. I knew things were bad.. but HELL! I wanna wish all of those poor families and animals my best. You're all in my thoughts.
Onwards, to happier things!!
New challenge today over at Passion for ProMarkers. This time the theme was chosen by our lovely Shelly, and she wants to see those creations with hearts!
HAVE A HEART
This is the adorable Wryn from Tiddly Inks - Close to my Heart. I have printed her out using the 'no lines' technique. This is the first no lines digi I have attempted, and I gotta say I was impressed with how it turned out. The lines were faint, but not so faint that you got blurred vision! LOL!
I decided to stick to a pastel colour palette, really test those faint lines out. I was going for a shabby chic/vintage theme. To me that means pastel colours, lots of texture and cute little embellishments like that teal heart I picked up at a button stall in Durham last year!
I wanted to add more hearts to the card, to really bring home the sentiment (from an Amy R set) so I die cut a bunch from scrap paper using some X-Cut dies. I'm starting to come to the end of a bunch of my MME paper packs - I ain't gonna lie, it feels good and it feels sad at the same time - so I'm tryna use up all the ickle pieces before cutting into my last few full sheets. Stay tuned for a couple projects using up scraps in the near future. ;)
So that's all I got for ya today. Enough of my waffling on about stuff you can clearly see for yourself from the photos! I just like to type! LOL.
