Digital Tuesday- In The Garden

The challenge over at Digital Tuesday this week is "In The Garden" which just so happens to be the same theme as this months challenge at By The Cute and Girly, so why not combine the two challenges and enter for a chance to win double the prizes? :)

Our sponsor at Digital Tuesday this week is Spesch Stamps and the lovely owner Tracey gave the design team a digi image of their choice each to use this week.

I chose the lovely "Meadow Girl" image by Silvia at Spesch Stamps for my card and as usual coloured with Promarkers.
I don't usually colour with any of the darker or bright colours but I was brave and used some of the brighter blues and I have to say that I quite like it and will be using them more often.

I followed the sketch at Sketch Saturday, so am entering this card into their challenge.
The papers are all Fancy Pants and I used some ribbon from my stash, a pretty flower from Little Snippets Etsy Store which I added a gold spacer and pearl from my stash on and the decorative corner bit which you can hardly see in this pic (although it does show up better in real life) was done with an old McGill corner punch and I layered it onto some blue card.

Here's the Promarker colours I used for anyone who is interested.

Skin: Oatmeal, Blush, Ivory and baby Pink for cheeks.
Hair: Raw Sienna, Terracotta, Spice
Top: Baby Pink, Cocktail Pink
Trousers: Azure, Cyan, Sky Blue
Greens for leaves etc: Leaf Green, Meadow Green

I have had a few emails lately from people asking which Promarker colours I use, so I have been trying to remember to list the colours, but sometimes I just forget....sorry.
Also I have had a few emails from people wanting to know how to make some of the flowers I have used on my cards (the handmade ones obviously). I will try to get a tutorial done soon but if you have any questions in the meantime (about marker colours, flowers or anything else), please feel free to ask a question in my chat box and I will get back to you asap :)

Thanks for stopping  by
