Random Cards

Hi all! I just bought some new Promarkers.  I took a chance because I didn't have much success with the copics.  Maybe because they are a fortune to buy and you need at least 2-3 shades of the same family color.  It's a b-day present to myself and guess what???? I LOVE THEM! Oh first try I was in a comfort zone and I am super excited with the results.

Here is a Pollycraft digital image "Sydney with Christmas Present".  She is colored with the promarkers on the whisper white cardstock from Stampin' Up!  The gorgeous papers are from Pink Paislee.  I used my slice to cut out the trees and used the Friskers punch to cut the scalloped edge.  The flowers are from Prima.  My green gems were too light so I colored them using the promarkers.  They won't fade because they are alcohol based.  Flower soft now has White and it's absolutely gorgeous.  There is a little glitter in there so the results are so similar to a shimmery winter summer day.  I recommend this on your winter cards.
This next card is the most adorable stamps from Penny Black "Xmas Snapshots".  I used Memento Tuxedo Black on whisper white cardstock and once again used the Promarkers for coloring.  The papers are from Bo Bunny.  I absolutely love this line.  I used my slice to cut out the tree and then stickled to edges.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.  TFL!

I am entering my first card to the Pollycraft challenge - A Glittery Christmas
