I ♥ Promarkers - Paper Piercing

Fingers crossed this scheduled post appears, as Mr Blogger has let me down twice in the last week. Tut.

Anyway, today sees the start of a new challenge at I ♥ Promarkers, and this week the theme is paper-piercing.  The DT were given some lovely images from Digi Doodle Shop who are sponsoring this weeks challenge, and I have used this sweet Faery image. 

I used a pricking tool to pierce the edges of the paper panels, and resisted the temptation to stitch them! :D lol.  The papers are Prima, the flowers are WOC, and the  latex leaves were an ebay bargain.

Most people would notice that I dont usually colour so much of my image, as I dont really have the confidence to potentially ruin a picture once I have coloured the main image in, but the new Flex Markers are fabulous.  I managed to colour sky and grass for the first time on the first attempt, so they get a thumbs up from me! :)

On a final note - My internet has been throttled until 1st September and its absolute pants! :(  I cant visit blogs, and cannot see pictures as they dont load.  I am so upset, as my ISP are quite harsh on this, and its not a brilliant internet speed to begin with!.. bah!  So I will endeavour to catch up and visit as soon as I can, and I hope to be back to normal asap :)

Thanks so much for looking at my blog today,

Beautiful card Alison! Love the image and the grass does look fab!! Well don you! I can't wait to get my hands on some Flexmarkers but they'll need to be able to perform miracles to bring my colouring up to scratch, lol. As usual, your papers and layers and pretty bits are all so well put together.

Ooh love this Alison!! Beautiful image and colouring. Those flowers are Gorgeous!!! and they look really good with the pink paper.
I was just thinking of having a go at paper pricking and sewing. Not done it before, so if I get time will have a go! it looks really good!
Hope you're having a good week!
Hugs Sue xx
p.s. The internet generally is pants! we got high rate for faster speed but it still has days when pages won't load etc. very frustrating!

I do like that grass - I am keeping my eyes out for when the new FlexMarkers will be available. Haven't seen where to get hold of them yet nor the price. Am saving for the Cardiff show end Sept so maybe I'll find them there. I like your scalloped bordered panel framed by that lacey punched border - very effective.

Alison, this is amazing! I love the Digi Doodle Shop's images. You selected a fabulous image and colored it so beautifully. Love the layout and the flowers. So incredibly beautiful.

Miranda said...

(little secret, have been working on the same image this week, it will be posted Sep 5th, funny isn't it, it looks so different from yours...)

Another gorgeous card Alison, love the pretty colours and gorgeous embelishments.

The sponging on my kite card was done with a small make up sponge, my mother got me a bag of about 20 from the £1 shop, and a blue out of a set of inks from WHSmiths called Ink It Up.

Hope you are having a great week, apart from the internet issues, managed to get an early finish today from work so managed to get round to do a bit of blogging :) xx

Loss of internet means more 'crafting' time!!
but then its hard to catch up - I have just lost a week somewhere - so I am doing a catch up!
This is a gorgeous card, lovely image and as usual you have finished with lots of lovely detail.
