Boy time @ I Love Promarkers

Well, the sun is out and bright, and I am away on holiday - there is a first for everything lol. I don't really like leaving all my plants and animals though and constantly panic that something is going to go wrong - but I really am enjoying the sunshine and being able to relax a little.

However, I do need to tell you about our new challenge twist over at I Love Promarkers. The challenge is an Anything Goes but our twist is to create something for a boy.

How you interpret this is completely up to you, as long as you make sure you follow the theme and you MUST use either ProMarkers, FlexMarkers, AquaMarkers or Trias on your work, if not you entry will be deleted

The Prize for the lucky winner is
2 Digi Images

...I have used GusAnother Year for my card:

I used a black scalloped base card to make the colours pop. Promarkers used are - Cool Grey 3/Oatmeal/Slate/Soft Peach/Pink Mittens/Sunkissed Pink/Lemon/Yellow/Ruby/Blue Pearl/China Blue/Cyan.

I cut the image close to the frame edge and matted onto yellow pearlised paper, before mounting onto the card base. I stamped the sentiment, which came free with Creative Stamping magazine last year, and heat embossed with Gold Heat It Up powder. On the other side I drew a balloon using Dovecraft 3D pearls - there is obviously a gust of wind at the one side!

The border along the bottom was created with a Dovecraft sequin glitter glue. This is a new product sold in The Works, and I just had to have it. This particular one has butterfly sequins, but as it was blue I decided it would be suitable for a boy card lol. (You can see I had a slight issue at the initial application site due to having not used this product previously, but it is actually really smooth application).

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
PFP #448 Make it manly
ATSM #296 Anything Goes
C4C438 Masculine
sweet stampin' - Special Man
