MAWTT challenge 69 - Use Promarkers - Christmas Tag

As you can see the theme this week is to use Promarkers and is hosted by the lovely Lisa. I have collected a few Promarkers this year, and certainly do not have them all, but I love to experiment with overlaying different colours, which is what I have done on my tag this week, especially the girl's red suit.

We are being sponsored by Letraset, who make Promarkers. They are giving away a set of SPRING coloured pens as the prize this week which has the colours Powder Blue, Pink Carnation, Buttercup, Leaf Green and Orchid. There are also 2 fineliners in 0.1 and 0.3.

If you enter, to ensure you are in with a chance of winning, you must put a link to Letraset on your blog, saying that they are sponsoring the MAWTT challenge this week.

This is a tag I made using a vintage image from The Graphics Fairy and using my Promarkers to colour it in.

I used 4 colours and the blender pen on the red suit - Cardinal Red, Crimson, Caramel and Magenta. Now who would have thought that they would mix, but by adding the brown, I think I've got more of a vintage red colour, which I really like.

I added some flower soft to the fluffy bits around the collar and sleeves of the girl. The edges were inked with DIs on all 3 papers and the tag itself.

The Poinsettia is made from glitter card using a creative flowers die from CREAlies.

I added a hole reinforcer, and some ribbon and eh voila.

I shall keep this to put on someones gift at Christmas.

It would be lovely if you took part in this challenge, I love going and looking to see how other people interpret the challenges.

Enjoy your Thursday and the weekend.

Allsorts - Let's play Bingo - love this one, choose one of the lines from their bingo card. I chose the bottom line ribbon, tag and punch, but I have used a die rather than a punch so I hope this counts.

So many great elements. My favourite is the doubles up ribbon. The contrast in colour and the difference in a soft, wide ribbon and a thread like ribbon. Love it! Thanks for playing with Stampin' Royalty!

Fabulous! I love the way you've managed to mix those colours - it's definitely a 'vintagey' red. Beautifully embellished too.

Thanks for joining us at Crafty Cardmakers this time.
