Passion for Promarkers

Passion for Promarkers time again and this week and Tracy has chosen the theme fantasy/mythology, I have just love that theme, the DT have some fab projects to inspire you, check them out here

I chose to use Mermaid Anya (in stock here) I have had her ages and I don't think I have ever used her before but that's not really unusual for me!!!

I coloured her in the following Promarkers, all available here:

Skin: Blush, Dusky Pink, Pastel Pink

Hair: Burnt Sienna, cocoa & caramel

Bikini top: cocktail pink, baby pink, pale pink

Tail: Bright green, meadow green

The fabulous swirl is from the Tim Holtz Elegant Flourishes Bigz Sizzix die, you get 2 swirls on the die, this is the smaller of the 2, I got mine here, Deb still has some in stock as she has just had a new delivery, be quick though they won't hang about for long!!

The fab papers I have used are Euphoria by Basic Grey, still available here and co-incidently Stampeezee have based their kit of the month on this very collection, check it out here

The border was created with an EK Success punch, the flowers are from my stash and the sentiment is from one of Amy Rysay's collections punch out with my new Stampin Up modern label punch. I just love the sentiment, I get more and more like Dori from Finding Nemo every day!!!! My memory is awful these days, I am suprised I remember my way home of an evening!!!

Anyway, have a great week peeps, I will be working and running as usual, the half marathon is now only weeks away and I am only up to 7 miles, I best get cracking eh!!! I have lost 8lb in weight since I started though so it's all worth it to me, makes me feel better about myself and elevates my mood!!

Thanks for looking, please feel free to leave a comment as I love reading them.
