#101 Pinks & Purples
Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - pinks & purples
Sponsor & prize this week - Digi Doodle Shops - $10 gift certificate
I have chosen to use the Digi Doodle Shop image of 'carousel' for my card this week & coloured it with Promarkers - and using the specified colour combo this week, very girly I think it looks too. I kept my variation of purples to the softer, lighter lilac variety and setting the merry-go-round horse in a circle he could almost be in a snow globe. LOL.
On the front, I have punched several of the dps corners using a Fiskars punch which also gave them an embossed finish that I thought tied in fairly well with the floral design on the carousel - it is just that photographing such intricacy is never easy! In case you are unsure which corners these are (because of the poor camera work of yours truly), I you can tell as I also dotted them with tiny 2mm gems - lilac & pink ones of course. The white die cut border peeking out behind the pink horizontal paper is actually just the very top of a Nellie Snellen border punch. The flowers, this time sporting 3mm gems in their centres, where created using a Woodware punch & layering up.
On the inside I cut circles to accommodate my Irish blessing sentiment from Raindrop Echo Designs but on the opposite side I went all arty & fiddled with the carousel image to make my row of horses go up & down. That is the trouble of having my head - prone to seeing other possibilities too!

Truly Scrumptious - something forgotten (not used this punch in ages - but rang the changes by constructing the flowers differently to how I normally do them)
