Working In The Garden

It feels like spring has come to London today, it is sunny and bright and I have a sunny and bright card for you today. This sweet gardener from Sugar Nellie was a real joy to colour with my promarkers.

Right, got to get on and do some more cards, catch you later.


Edit: As requested here is a list of the promarkers I have used:

Skin – Ivory; Blush; Pastel Pink
Green details – Meadow Green; Lime Green
Hat, socks, pot – Mustard; Henna; Umber
Top – Orange; Apricot
Pink Details – Pastel Pink; Magenta; Ice Grey 2
Hair – Mustard; Cocoa; Henna
Trousers – Cinnamon; Umber
Other bits – Ice grey 2; Black; Burnt Umber; Umber

There is a fab tip I picked up from the lovely blog of Jenn Muraoka – well worth a peek.

Materials:
Stamp – Elizabeth Bell Planting some love from Sugar Nellie
Ink – VersaFine Onyx Black
Colouring – Letroset Promarkers
Papers – Me and My Big Ideas
Usual suspects – Silicone glue; Paper trimmer
Other – Buttons

    What a lovely, vibrant card Kim and those little stamps are so sweet!
    I wish it was bright here, it’s been a really dull and gloomy day in Hampshire today.

    Hi Kim what a wonderful and bright card, it makes you feel like your in the sun. Just love the stamp too, I must invest in some stamps next time in the UK as stamps are very limited here.
