DCM - February's stone...Amethyst

How long is it since I've joined in with the challenges over at Daring Cardmakers? Absolutely ages, that's how long!! I'm really in a stamping and cardmaking mood so think I'll be trawling through my fave sketch and challenge blogs over the next few days. At Daring Cardmakers this week the challenge is to make a card inspired by Amethyst and as a bonus there's a prize of a Martha Stewart punch provided by Craft Obsessions. This card is my first using Promarkers so forgive me if the colouring isn't up to scratch!! Materials used: Papermill card, distress inks, handmade paper, HOTP paper, Provocraft paper, Crafty Individuals stamp, black Archival ink, Promarkers, alcohol ink. Metal embellishment and organza ribbon from stash.

It’s good to see you again, welcome back Jo.

I recently brought some Promarkers but really couldn’t get on with them but I think your card is beautiful and the colouring looks perfect to me.

Thanks for joining the Daring Cardmakers this week and good luck in the draw.
