Today’s handmade card has been created for the new challenge at I Love Promarkers Challenge #437
The theme for this challenge is Anything Goes with the option of Spots and/or Stripes.
You must use either promarkers, flexmarkers, aquamarkers or trias on your work.
Our sponsor for this challenge is Ike’s Art.
I have used one of their digital images called Tropical Fish as I thought the stripes on some of the tropical fish covered the brief. I also decided to make a box card for this design to add an ocean feel.
Here is a tutorial on how I created this card.
