I cannot believe I had the sudden urge to make a Christmas card in the Middle of a Heatwave, the heat must have fried my brain. I am still in the middle of the biggest commission I have had but am trying to make at least one card a day using an image I love. Since the LOTV Colouring Day I have had lots of requests to make some of my cards for the blog with ProMarkers, so here is one not only coloured in ProMarkers but using a colour scheme I have never used before.
“All Wrapped Up” was one of Lili of the Valleys 2010 Christmas releases, what a little darling she is. I usually colour my image and then search around for papers to match, but for thios card I had already decided I wanted to use some of the small bits of my Pion Papers left over from previous card, (this paper is just to precious to waste). The I choose the flowers and ribbon and finally coloured the image, I am so pleased with the results I may try this again, I know a lot of you make your card this way.
I stamped the music onto cream card using Lili of the Valley Clear Additions Grunge Music stamp and popped this behind the image. The Seam binding from The Ribbon Girl was distressed and glittered and a button from The Hobby House was added to the middle of the Bow.
The Flowers are a mixture from Wild Orchid Crafts and Prima and the leaves are from the Doo Hickey Mistletoe Die.
Promarkers used to colour the image:
Dress and Bow: Amber, Saffron, Vanilla, Ivory
Hat & Ribbons: Soft Green, Tea Green, Ivory
Flesh: Apricot, Saffron, Vanilla
Boots: Ice Grey1, Ice Grey 2, Ice Grey 5
Have a lovely weekend
