Happy New year

So much is made of Christmas cards that we forget about new year, i think for the special people in your life it is lovely to ring in their new year with a special message. 

The brand new Letraset Autumn /Winter pens are now available, yummy colours as always. 

I decided to keep the base of my case clean and white.. and just add some pops of colour. So I began by colouring some white card with Halloween and Storm Cloud. 

Of course Promarkers work on more than just card. Here I have coloured some white satin ribbon using Mustard and Pesto. This gives a two tone grungy appearance. 

I added the ribbons to the coloured card pieces. 

I stamped out these 3 poinsettia images onto watercolour paper, promarkers will spread a little more than usual on this paper, so care must be taken, but the overall effect is lovely and soft. The leaves are again Mustard and Pesto. The flowers are Hallowen, Sunset and Firebrick. 

I added my coloured strips to the white card base. 

Promarkers are perfect for colouring embeliishments such as these white pearls. 

I die cut 2 nesting shapes, colouring the larger one with Sunset. On the smaller one I used Storm Cloud on a rubber stamp to add snowflakes and then stamped my sentiment over the top. 

I used the pearls to accent the sentiment and for the centres of the flowers. 

I love these flowers, they have such depth..

I have one pack of these new colours to give away.To be in with a chance of winning you must do TWO things.
