Another sweet pea card

I've made this card for this weeks challenge from Crafts and Me which is to use Brown, Pink and Yellow.

The image is stamped onto pearlescent card and coloured with promarkers, I then added a background with pink and yellow chalks and overstamped with a swirl and added more chalk before edging with sepia versafine. The BP is made using pink shades of glimmer mists and the 'cling film' technique (doesn't show up too well on the pic tho). The BP has been overstamped with Elusive images corner stamps using sepia versafine and embossed with clear EP. The flower is made using another Elusive images stamp, stamped onto a scrap of BP again with sepia and embossed with clear EP. The centre is a bottle cap, flattened in my cuttlebug and coloured with Espresso alcohol ink. The centre of the bottle cap is filled with brown microbeads and a little chantilly lace glitter - its really sparkly in real life.
I'm really enjoying using my new Sweet Pea stamps, the images are gorgeous and they are such good quality - I can't wait to get some more.
I'm also entering this card into the following challenges
Quixotic Challenge - Heavy Metal
Flutter by Wednesday - Open Challenge (with a butterfly, angel or fairy)
One stop Craft Challenge - Things with wings

Well I better go and make this weeks Christmas card lol

  6. Very nice card! Thanks for playing along with my flutter by challenge!

  7. Wow. Fabulous Claire. Your work blows me away! Do you do all your work with promarkers? What exactly are they and how do they compare with Copics? I know the quality of the work has much more to do with who is pushing the pencil than the pencil itself but just wondering.
