In the Spotlight!

Hello. Hope this finds you well.

Today I would like to share a card I made in response to the current Passion for Promarkers challenge which is ‘In the Spotlight’.

Now I had heard of this technique but never tried it so I was keen to give it a go. 

So this is what I made.

The papers and sentiment are LOTV as is the gorgeous image which is called ‘Wedding Couple’.

I stamped the image twice and then from one of them I cut a small section (their super cute little faces) using a Sizzix Framelits die.  I then coloured it in with Promarkers, backed it with a small edge of pink paper and then mounted it onto the complete uncoloured image, which had been cut using a larger heart die. I also drew on some faux stitching for added interest.

The pearls and lace are from my stash and I took three long pearl topped pins, coloured one with a Watermelon Flexmarker then attached on a few more beads to 'posh' them up a bit.  I then tied a bow from white Silky Crush ribbon (my absolute favourite) and stuck them into the knot.

The pink roses and buds are created from a Britannia die and the white ones are a Sizzix Bigz die. 

And there you are.  Throughout the whole process (and even now) I couldn’t stop singing “Going to the chapel and we’re going to get maaaaaaaried!” (A song by the Dixie Cups).

Just be grateful this doesn't come with a soundtrack!

See ya!

Scribbly hugs
