WOYWW!

Asproject2a1009I have n't gone mad ... I will show you my work desk in a mo ... it is just that the picture was pretty naff so I thought I would show the finished card first :0)
This is my entry for the Passion For Promarkers challenge this week where the colour challenge is Poppy red and Forest green.
Those Distress ink fans amongst you will also spot an abundance of Peeled Paint ... I have got a thing about stamping my own background papers at the moment ... I am sure just like all my other things ... this one will pass in time too :0)ASproject21009
All stamps used are by The Artistic Stamper ... the backgrounds and the Mabel Lucie Attwell chappy in his car!
The stitching is faux ... I am loving that word ... faux! I used my inkessentials white pen and my Timmy ... the man that can walk on hot coals with bare feet while making a souffle and grunge paper flowers at the same time ... ruler and pokey tool :0)
WOYWW2110 Now to the extremely bad piccy of my desk ... this card was on my desk when I entered my craft room this morning in an unfinished state ... along with my ATG gun ... that I LOVE ... and a load of other half finished embellishment things ... that will probably remain half finished until the end of time!
I am off to look at other people's desks now ... with the magic of the tinternet and if you all fancy a nosey then just visit Julia's blog ... where every one links up! And if you fancy joining in this week ... well please do ... the more ... the merrier :0)

Hi Linda, what a gorgeous card. I love the sweet image and your colouring is fab. The background looks stunning. I don't feel so bad about my desk now I've seen yours LOL! Thanks for joining us at PFP this week. Hugs, Denise x

Dan said...

I took a peek, and now I'm able
To gasp agog at your heaped table!
There, among the peel-offs and things
A gleaming, golden ATG sings!
To those who pass their time with glue
This yellow gun purrs "I love you"!
About your card, yeah sure, that's cool,
I don't like Atwell, as a rule,
But you've a knack for crafty chores,
And no one's cards are good as yours!

Kathy said...

Had another nose to screen moment before I realised I can maximise the pictures (again) Do you know what a stretch for me that is on my nice new BIG desk? Almost got my boobies in my tea I did. Anyway it was worth it to oggle that stitching - what a cool idea to prick the holes too, am so going to nick that!

Hi There,

I am looking at all the great coloring work and you state that you are using Pro markers. I have not heard of these and I am curious. From the search they are only available in U.K. What are the difference between these and copic? Is it just price! I think I need to have these. If you see this can you tell me more about these! Any suggestions?
