Stamping with ProMarkers

Recessed window card number two:

This was a fun card to make. I wanted to try something new for me with ProMarkers and quite like the result. This card is for Passion for ProMarkers challenge set by Caryn and it's - 'Girly and Glittery', The Pink Elephant - 'Recipe, 1 ribbon, 2 squares and something that sparkles', Creative Card Crew - 'pink, black and white' and La-La Land Crafts - 'a bit of bling'.

You can find the tutorial link on how to make a recessed window card on my previous post here. It's my second attempt at one of these fab handmade tissue paper flowers and if you want to try it the tutorial link is here. So where are the ProMarkers you may ask? Well I stamped the flowers on the 7 layers of tissue paper with Carmine. Got the idea from the Passion for ProMarkers blog, there's a great tutorial on stamping on tissue to make a candle. It's really easy to do and the colour has come out a lot better than when I used Memento ink last time. The girly and glittery bits are the pinkness and the DCWV paper has oodles of glitter in it - honestly!

And here's what the inside looks like. I don't often do insides but this type of card deserves it.

Really enjoyed these challenges but so many more to try and fit in before the week is out!
