Red, White and Blue...

..that's the theme this week at the Passion for Promarkers challenge blog.

And here's my entry:


As I mentioned in my WOYWW post, I recently followed a link to Dilly Bean's blog and her gorgeous digi stamps and fell utterly in love with them and kind of had to buy a whole bunch of them! :lol: I was eager to play with my new goodies so I used this image - Heart Fairy Framed - for my card.

She's coloured in with Promarkers, of course, and a touch of white gel pen here and there for highlights. I kept the card pretty simple as the image is so striking I felt it needed a bold, simple card design. The papers and baker's twine are freebies that came with a craft mag (can't remember which one!) recently. I inked the edges of the papers in black and doodled a border around the card to match the one around the image. To finish I hand-wrote the greeting as that seemed to fit with the doodled/hand-drawn effect borders.

Et voila!

I'm also entering this card into the "use a digi" challenge at One Stitch at a Time. :)

I printed out a whole bunch of Dilly Bean images (might as well use up a whole sheet of card rather than print one image at a time and cut the card up) so expect to see more of them on my cards in the near future! :)
