Passion For Promarkers - hugs and kisses

Our challenge for this week at Passion For Promarkers is 'hugs & kisses'... aww, lovely theme :o)  We're sponsored by Bearly Mine Designs so there'll be a fab prize for our lucky winner.


Now, before I go any further I just have to say - I made a BOW!!!!  Have you noticed I don't often add bows to my cards?  Basically, even with a bow maker (I have the bow-easy and a Papermania one) my bows still look awful, and I've never managed to tie one 'free-hand'.  But thanks to the lovely Jan, who kindly showed me how, I've tied one... all by myself... without the aid of a safety net and all that... woo hoo, thank you Jan!!!  Although, I do think I went a bit overboard and my bow should probably be a bit smaller lol...

Moving on... I've used an image from Some Odd Girl, coloured with promarkers, with koh-i-noor pencils for the shadow and glow.  The papers are Making Memories, with dark brown cardstock from Papermill Direct and the fab gingham ribbon is from Hobbycraft (I went in to buy a paintbrush!).  The sentiment is CC Designs.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Back in a little while with something else....

Super card Lisa, I was going to ask how you tied your bow before I scrolled down and read your post!
I would love to know you're technique for grounding the images with your coloured pencils as it looks so softly done...do you have to use a blending pencil and what sort of shades do you use?
I think waiting is the best idea re having a dog, as cute as they are they're just another consideration when you want to go out or on holiday and then there's the cost of vets and kennels etc.... When the boys are older they can help more with the care
too:)

I went away for a week and you went MAD... can't comment on ALL the cards you made but take my word on it; I love them all! I think this bow is the right "big", after all the sentiment says to wish BIG! Dee
