Multitasking Challenges

This weeks colours on Passion For Promarkers are Pumpkin & Prussian, but there's an added theme of Halloween

I used the sketch from this weeks Sketch Saturday and the image is downloaded from Elizabeth Dulemba. I coloured some white primas with my prussian blue promarkers & the outer circle of the sentiment too

Blogging in the early hours

This weeks challenge on Passion For Promarkers is to use Cocoa & Rose Pink

I used cocoa for the hair & rose pink for the drink, chair & stool but I also used the pink to customise my paper as the flowers & circles were a very pale lilac so I coloured over them with my promarker (I've left 2 circles on the right hand side so you can see the difference - have coloured them in now I've taken the photo!

I've also used this weeks fab sketch over at Papertake Weekly

I made this last night using this weeks sketch at Sketch Saturday & the image qualifies for Penny Black's Soft & Sweet challenge.

A Template

Sue on the JB forum gave us a sketch to play with - here's my take on it

It looks a bit wonky as I tucked the lace behind the paper - it looked better when it was upright, honest!!

Pixie B'day Card

The Pollycraft Challenge 6 is Doodling!!! We would like to see Doodling on your cards, so put the flourish stamps away as it needs to be hand drawn doodles.

I bought some stamps from Pollycraft last week & stamped them up and coloured them in as soon as they arrived but the doodling really stumped me

Here's what I came up with

I used the sketch from this weeks Papertake Weekly Challenge Dawney's Sketch 6
