A Passion for Markers BlogSpot Challenge #686 - In the Garden

Hello and a happy Tuesday to you all !

I'm here today to let you know that a new challenge has started over on the Passion for Markers Blog challenge.

This weeks challenge is being sponsored by the wonderful Lili of the Valley

I've loved their rubber and photopolymer stamps for many, many years (I have lots and lots in my stash), so I was really happy to find out that we would be using one of their digital stamps for this challenge.

There are loads of lovely images in the Etsy store, so why not take a look and join in with the challenge.  Don't forget there will be a prize for the Winner of the challenge - there are more details over on the blog.

It was my turn to choose the theme for Team 2 this week and because this week is World Earth Day (Saturday 22nd April) I decided to pick 'In the Garden' as the theme for this challenge.  Gardens are so important to our environment especially when we plant bee and other insect friendly plants and where would we be without the bees. 

This is my DT inspiration for the challenge made using the digital image Magical Flute...This sweet mouse playing his flute in the garden for the insects and just look at the flowers dancing for him too!

I like to imagine that our garden here comes alive with magical little creatures like these when we aren't around to watch.

The beautiful image was coloured with my Promarkers (see below for colours used) and I added some  additional die cut wild flowers around the sides of the panel, for some extra detail. 

It's a larger 5" x 7" card and I've used Pan pastels to gently tint the background of the image, adding the design panel onto a layer of green cardstock.

The sentiment stamp is from Crafters companion and has been in my stash for ages but I thought was perfect for my card, stamped with a blue Versafine Clair ink.

I really hope that you have enjoyed my card today and will drop by again to see my next project and don't forget to join in with the challenge over on the Passion for Markers blog

Hasta luego ๐Ÿ‘‹ 

Enjoy the rest of your day !
