The sponser this time is Letreset you just couldnt ask for anything more exciting,
and the fabulous prize they are offering the winner is a set of 12 promarkers,
and here is what they say about themselves:-
ProMarkers are made by Letraset and are a twin tipped, dye based alcohol marker offering a high quality product at a great price. Avilable in 148 colours, they give incredible tonal range and can be applied to a diverse range of materials, not just paper and card. ProMarkers produce vivid, bright colours right through to the subtlest pastel shades - the translucent inks can also be overlaid and blended, even further extending the range of shades and hues on offer. ProMarker's quality nibs and inks provide flawless colour lay down with consistent coverage and no unsightly streaking.
And here is my card for this Challenge:-
The image I have used for this card is by Stampin Up and the set is called "Summer by the Sea" unfortunately the set is now discontinued and I had a bit of job getting hold of a set of stamps, this actual image was given to me by a really lovely follower of mine, (she knows who she is) and I just couldnt use it without getting hold of the actual stamps to be able to use this image again. Ive stamped it onto white card and used my promarkers to colour it, after which I cut it out with my rotatrim and mounted it onto dark blue card. The sentiment is one of the Penny Black stamps and felt it went well with the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of dark blue card, and one of two papers from the Nitwits Downloads and is a lovely blue paper with a water and wave pattern on, the two corner pieces are a beige paper with darker spots on, these were also mounted on the dark blue card. The card was created as the sketch shows, and to finish of Ive used three buttons top and bottom in the mounted corners.
