0 5 Comments

Today’s handmade card has been created for the new challenge at I Love Promarkers Challenge #508.
The theme for this challenge is Anything Goes with the option of paper piecing.

You must use either promarkers, flexmarkers, aquamarkers or trias on your work.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Digi Doodles Studios.

For my card I have used one of their digital images called Dahlia’s Blooms.

Here is a tutorial on how I created this card.

Choose two coloured cards, two pattern papers and two sentiments.

Layer one:
Cut a piece from the first coloured card measuring 14.5 cms by 20.5 cms.
Cut a piece from the first paper measuring 14 cms by 20 cms.
Matt and layer together and attach to the card base.

Layer two:
Using the large corners dies from volume I, cut two from the second paper.
Attach one to the top left and one to the bottom right corner of the card base.

Next cut out a couple of flowers from the printed paper image.
Paper piece these onto the coloured image.

Matt and layer together and attach to the card base using foam pads.

    Loving the paper piecing on the flowers, that paper works really well with the rest of the colours you have used. I also love the additional butterflies!
