One card three challenges!

Well I've finally done it, made a card that combines three challenges! As I've recently brought some promarkers I thought I'd give them a go. First impressions are that they are great but I need some practice. But not too bad for a first attempt, I'll have to check out some of the tutorials out there. So I'm entering my card for the passion for promarkers challenge. The colours to use were pastel pink and cool aqua, there is also a great sketch to follow. I'll also enter this for the Just magnolia and simon says challenges as I've used distressing on my card and that's the required element for those challenges!

Image - Magnolia
Sentiment - Stampin' up oval all set
Cardstock - SU, DP - DCVW
Colouring medium - promarkers and white gel pen
Flowers - Hobby craft (accented with shimmer paints)
Tools - leaf punch (woodware), nesties, Stampin' up oval and scallop oval punches, SU distressing tool, piercing tool
Ribbon - Stampeezee
Pin - ebay

I've had some new stash over the past week or so and got another SU order on the way! (Plus a few other little things in the post too!). I've had to be good for a while with moving in and decorating our cottage, holiday and my dad's 50th, most my spare pocket money has gone on these things. So now we are more settled and a few other things are out of the way I've got a little extra pocket money for all things crafty again!!!

So I suppose I better get using some of it! Can't wait to use my Swiss Pixies stamps-Love 'em!
I've also been trying to organise my craft supplies and I'm in the process of creating some stamp storage files.

Thank you for taking the time to visit!

hugs and smiles,

Wonderful card! I have one (yes, I repeat, ONE) Promarker, so I can't really join any challenges yet :D I just wanted to try one out, and picked a skin tone, so I can do faces and hands.

Hi Katrina, your card is gorgeous. Your colouring looks great! I think I might have to buy a promarker or two! Looks like you will be doing plenty of crafting with these goodies.
I hope you had a lovely weekend. Can't wait for the SU order to arrive.
