I ♥ Promarkers Challenge #34 - Pearls & Swirls

Here we are again, another wednesday and the last in September already.  How the year is flying by and we are rapidly approaching October and the Halloween season.

This week Challenge #34 on I ♥ Promarkers is sponsored by Pollycraft and we have the theme of 'Pearls & Swirls'.

For my DT card this week I've used this adorable image from Pollycraft called 'Ginger Pumpkin'.  I love how her little kitty is peeking around the top of the pumpkin.

I coloured her with Promarkers and added Glossy Accents to the pumpkin before cutting her out with a nestabilities die, adding Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink while the die was still in place.  The purple background layer and the orange oval layer were embossed with Cuttlebug embossing folders and the black swirl was cut using a Tim Holtz for Sizzix bigz die.  I added a little Diamond Stickles to the Prima flower and punched the fronds from black card using a Martha Stewart punch.  The beads and pearls are from my stash and the cobweb is a Magnolia stamp.

I do hope you'll enter the challenge this week and I look forward to seeing your creations.

Til next time, Happy Crafting !

Fab card. I love the embossed pruple and yellow backing. along with the image it makes the card really modern looking. That flower is ace too, especially with the glittery bits.

Hi Wynneth,
Her I'm back again. You ask me about the papilio stamp, if it's a figi or a stamp.
This is a stamp I've bought last year. I bought it by wwww.papiliostamps.com
