Passion for ProMarkers week #12 – Cocoa and Rose pink

This weeks challenge at Passion for ProMarkers was set by the lovely Natalie and is Cocoa and Rose pink, if you check out the rest of the DT cards you find heaps of inspiration :)

The sponsor this week is Yellow Moon and this week's prize is a £10 gift voucher to spend on any of the _craft supplies and children's crafts_ at Baker Ross/yellow moon

ym234x60

It is a great place to buy crafty stuff for kids - ideal to keep them occupied during the duller or wetter days. It also has a terrific selection of craft blanks e.g. wee gift boxes, pencil boxes bags etc. And we are going to be really cheeky here and ask you all a favour - if any of you place an order at Yellow Moon, when you checkout there is a page that will ask you for a source code so that the commission on your order goes to a charity or group. As many of you know Debbi is the secretary/treasurer and co-founder of Extra Special Parents which is a support charity for parents and carers of children with special needs. Our source code is SSH10729 and I would really appreciate it if you could use that so that ESP receives the commission, so not only will you be getting some great goodies you will also be giving to charity, what a bonus :)

Ok back to my card, I have used Penny Black image and coloured with the following ProMarkers

  • Bear – Cocoa & Cinnamon
  • Sack – Rose Pink
  • Hat – Carmine & Magenta
