Sunday Sketch & Stamp 11: Frillie Millie BonBon

Click to enlarge picture NB Sorry for the rubbish photo - I took it when the light was fading, but I'll take another and update soon.

It's Sunday again, and time for a brand new challenge at Sunday Sketch & Stamp!

Before I jabber on, I want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who joined in with challenge 10, and for all your wonderful comments about my sketch (I'm so relieved you liked it, LOL!). Of course, I'd like to think that our record number of participants had something to do with my sketch, but I know you all wanted to try out for the Guest DT positions really, didn't you? *wink wink* LOL! The DT are busy gazing upon your fabulous creations, and we'll be making our final decision soon.

So... onto my card! We have a great sketch by Arianne this fortnight, and a prize donated by Pink Petticoat! The DT were lucky enough to be given the brand new Pink Petticoat 'Frillie Millie' range of digi stamps to play with, and I chose 'Bonbon' for my card (purely because she has a poodle, LOL!)

I confess that I'm still finding my Copics hard to use, so I've decided to give Promarkers a try instead. I already had a few (that I won in a blog candy giveaway a while ago), and so I ordered Sandstone and Blue Pearl from Joanna Sheen so I could take part (for the first time!) in the Passion for Promarkers challenge blog. These colours are so beautiful together, and I really enjoyed using the Promarkers, so I'm going to continue giving these a try for the time being!

The little 4mm pearls were originally white, but I used the Sandstone and Blue Pearl Promarkers to colour them to match the card.

So....I'm going to enter this card into this week's Passion for Promarkers Challenge (week 16)!

Thanks for visiting today, guys! I'm off out for the day at a Kite Festival with hubby and daughter!

Happy Sunday!

Hugs, Sem xx
