I ♥ Promarkers DT Card - Food & Drink

Good morning,

It's Wednesday so that means the start of another fab challenge over at I ♥ Promarkers  This week our theme is 'Food and Drink' and our sponsor is the fab Just Inklined.

I chose a fab digi from our sponsor called 'Feed The Birds', which of course has been coloured with Promarkers.  I love the retro feel to it.  I'm not sure about other parts of the UK but sadly it's been years since we stopped getting milk delivered in glass bottles, this kind of thing just wouldn't happen now with a 4 pint plastic carton from Tesco!

To be totally honest I was a little bit daunted colouring this as it's not the type of image I would normally go for but I needn't have worried as it was a joy to colour and I really enjoyed doing something out of my comfort zone.  As soon as I chose my image I knew what paper pack I would go for - Home to Nest by Lucy Cromwell, but in the end I just chose one paper from the pack and teamed it with a checked paper from a We Are Memory Keepers pad for a little added colour.  Ive matted the papers on to kraft card and also used a new kraft polka dot washi tape from Dovecraft.  It took me ages to get into washi tape but I'm converted now! I've finished off my card with a birthday sentiment from LOTV, a bird charm from the Papermania Sew Lovely range, pearls and a raffia topped button.

That's all from me for now, thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Shona xx
