Yesterday I received my lovely new Promarkers which I won recently on the C.R.A.F.T. challenge. I decided to choose pastel colours as I tend to use pastels quite a bit. I only had the set of skin tones and was rather limited so tended not to use them much at all. Well, today I thought I would have a play with them and this card is the result. Please excuse the shading, I need a lot more practice.

Following the lovely sketch (one I shall use again and again), I first covered my base card with a floral paper. As the paper was just brown and white I coloured bits in with my pens and added glitter glue to the dots, my what a difference! I then wrapped a piece of ribbon around a piece of brown card and attached it to the bottom, adding a punched butterfly (also coloured with the pens). I then coloured my digi stamp using a combination of Promarkers and MLP pens adding glitter glue to the wings and flowers. I then double layered this using Nesties. The stamped sentiments are also double layered. Finally I coloured some flowers with the Promarkers and added pearls to the centres and also the butterfly's body. All in all I am rather pleased with how it all turned out and I think I will be using the Promarkers a lot more from now on.
