Promarkers … alcohol markers challenge at Paperartsy. 

I rarely manage to join in with the challenge over at Paperartsy these days but spotted the theme was alcohol ink/markers… so I grabbed a digital stamp and coloured in using my Promarkers.  

Now I don’t profess to be a brilliant colourist…. Darcy is am amazing Promarker colourist…. but I am usually happy with the results I get using my Promarkers.  And they are perfect for colouring digital stamp printouts. 

Happy crafting!

Second page from Helen’s class kit

On Wednesday night I made a start on another page, but didn’t finish it until last night. I used the Confetti Celebrations DSP kit from Helen’s class, and this layout was the sketch I started from … But mine ended up nothing like this!

For a start Helen had designed the pages using retired papers, and we were using the new DSP for our kit. Plus as I wasn’t able to stay at the class I didn’t have the dimensions etc, or what Helen’s plans were for what papers… So I made it up, and then just merrily scrapped away until I was happy with my page!

I used papers I had already cut into for yesterday’s page rather than going for new ones. The great thing about the SU papers being double sided is that you can get a different look from just one paper, and when designs are geometric like this, the way you place them can also change them.

I ended up adding a couple of different bits and pieces… I kept with the circles theme started on the previous page. I also added a punched border in the Basic Grey cardstock across the panel of papers using a Martha Stewart punch I hadn’t used for ages. I used some of the punched out chevrons from the fab Chevron punch I had used whilst at the beginning of the class… I do love this punch! In fact I need this punch!

I kept with Helen’s idea of doodling, so there were wiggly lines added for a lot of things. I added a little bit of bunting using the pennant punch and pennant parade stamps… Again something I’ve not used for a while! I also added some stickers from the stash and the Mickey Mouse heads … Think these little Mickey heads are going to be a wonderful purchase from eBay! Love them!

So hope you like what I did … I certainly do!

Happy crafting!
