Passion for ProMarkers - week 48 challenge



This is my card for this Passion for ProMarkers challenge.
http://promarkerchallenge.blogspot.com/

The theme of this weeks challenge was 'In the garden' and what better stamp set to use for this challenge than 'In the garden' set by Little Claire Designs, www.littleclaire.co.uk



I stamped the bird house with memento ink pad. I separately stamped the watering can which was from the same set and also the wellies, which came from 'Rainy days' stamp set also by Little Claire. I coloured these in with ProMarkers. I wanted to add some interest to the main image so I decided to cut it into three pieces. Thought it would be a bit different to the normal rectangle image. I mounted the three sections to Kraft card by Stampin' Up.

Before mounting this panel onto cream card I tied linen thread, also from Stampin' Up around the card. I used this to tie my greeting tag onto. I stamped with greeting with white craft ink pad. I cut out the watering can and attached it to the image.

I decided to make an easel card. The card blank was made from one A4 piece of card. I cut in half long ways. I folded one of these piece in half and then one of the halves panels in half again. To this now quarter panel I attached a A6 piece of card. This was a quarter of the original A4 sheet.



The bottom panel was made from a rectangle of cream card which I punched with a scalloped edge punch by Stampin' Up. I attached a strip of spotty paper by My Minds Eye. To hold the top of the card up I added brads. The cream section was added the the lower section of the card. To finish I added the wellies.
