Passion for Promarkers - Sugar Rush

Hi bloggers, hope you are all well, another week gone by and time again for Passion for Promarkers, this week Vix has chosen the theme 'Sugar Rush', I have gone for cute & girly.

I chose to use a cute image from La La Land Crafts, Ballarina Marci, some of this adoarable range will soon be available at Stampeezee....can't wait, they have some cute images!!

I made a trinket box using the tutorial I used last year from Kirsten's blog, hubby converted it to metric for me, details on this post here

The layout is from this weeks Friday Sketchers, fab sketch by Claudia

This is the view at the back, I used a Whimsy Stamp from the handmade letter seals set, in stock here at Stampeezee, I cut the image out with nesties

Look at the sentiment I used, it is perfect for this image. It is from a set called Sweet Spring Jolinne available here at Stampeezee, I stamped it in Rich Cocoa Memento.

The nesting die set I used for the sentiment is by Die-namics from MFT also from Stampeezee and should be back in stock any day now, I had the last one...isn't it just fab?? Check out the other MFT dies Debbie has in stock, they are fantastic.

Check out the pearls in Marci's hair below, they are by Stampin Up, they are tiny, love them, they come in a pack of all different sizes, I got mine from the lovely Rach

I also decoupaged her flower and skirt.......how adorable!!

I coloured my image in the following PM's:

Cerise, Baby Pink, Pale pink, Leaf green, Blush, Dusky pink, Pastel Pink, Cinnamon, Umber, Cool grey 1 & 2 and the blender.

I used papers from the Lost & Found collection from My Minds Eye, they have the range in Stock in Hobbycraft at the moment, bit pricey though!!! The cardstock is Stampin Up Chocolate Chip, I used my last few sheets on this project!!

The ribbon I used is seam binding available in 20 colours here at Stampeezee

Not sure if you can tell from the pics but I went a bit mad with the crystal stickles!!

My card also qualifies for the DYSU challenge which is 'anything goes' and I have entered my project into the La La Land Crafts very own Gallery for March.

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