This weeks card has been a bit of an uphill struggle too. The image is from Digi Doodle Shop and is called Louis, Butterflies and Buttercups and the last time I tried to use it for a challenge I just couldn't get my ProMarkers to look even on his skin, there were lines and patches all over and the more I coloured it the worse it got so I binned the picture and started with another image altogether. This time around I made the image a lot smaller to reduce blotches and it worked, I am really quite happy with the finished image.
But that's not the whole story here, oh no. I made a card (with the I ♥ ProMArkers challenge sketch in mind) and although I managed to get all the bits and pieces in the right places, the final card (which is in the bin and will NEVER see the light of day!!) was so hideous it actually scared me how bad it was! I then went into panic mode and actually came up with a fairly decent card that, as usual, I hope you like too.
The papers used were really old Papermania papers I have had for years now and the flowers are the same, they have been in my craft room since Noah was a lad, but they work so what can I say?
So onward and upward, let's hope we don't lose any more musical heroes in the next 7 days and I will see you here again next week with another creation,
