Passion for Promarkers...

Passion for Promarker Design Day!!!
Welcome again ladies and gents...we have a fabulous theme this week...well it was something I've never done before using my promarkers.
Let's colour on Kraft paper...try it, you will love the results. This challenge was chosen by Jen
And the prize up for grabs is from Joanna Sheen

Just remember to colour on Kraft and use your Letraset products...

Ok...i was scared out of my tree with this challenge. Something I've never done and was worried how it would turn out. Funny enough, the colour went down great and it didn't worst nightmare... I did have to layer my colour a couple time to get the look i wanted but i think she turned out great.. This is a Simply Sassy image and the creator was none other than Krista Smith...i purchased her way before her digi's came out..i just fell in love with this image. OMG!!! i said OMG!!! as i was linking up this project you can now get this in digi!!!! 

I finished it up using my new CANDI and some Trendy Twine that i love. A simple sentiment and it's all she wrote...
Many thanks for dropping by and i can't wait to see what you all come up with...oh and by the way..i did a tutorial on this one and will post soon...happy crafting...
