LOTV DT - Bingo!!!!!

The weeks are flying by and its getting too dark for my liking. So what better way to spend than another evening huddled amongst my crafty stash. So heres a card for this weeks challenge over at the LOTV Challenge Blog. Its "Team A" and  eyes down for this week s "BINGO" challenge.

I have used one of my favourite lotv stamps Fairies on Tiptoe. Shes been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, then added Stickles to her wings and flowers. Again I've used the Fine Promarker Nibs, I'm so lovin these, gives that attention to detail with ease. I know, a bit of bleeding. This was already stamped so I dont know the cardstock but pretend its not there please. The paper is from the Prima Melody Pad, LOTV Sentiment, Assorted Flowers, Ribbon, Gems, Various Dies and lots of Pearls with Viva Pearl Pens. I've used a bandage again (lace sub, well looks lacey to me, think I got away with it - hehe).
Hoping my mojo is on the up and nawty me had to order some new stash to give me a boost so more stamps waiting to be inked (bet I dont)...
Wrap up warm, keep safe and heres a list of challenges I'm entering this card into;
I (heart) Promarkers - Aint It Cute

CES DT - Sugar Nellie Bookmark....

Hello all, managed to get back into my craftroom all set to make a card and I end up with a bookmark hehe... Sorry, its not the best of piccies.
Today we see a new challenge over at the CES Challenge Blog and this weeks theme is "Forever Autumn".
Dont use these colours much but love the combination. I have used a Sugar Nellie Stamp that I've had for years and love her (but dont know her name). Had a few packs of Promarker Fine Nibs sitting here for ages but yet to try and Wow, they are fantastic. What a transformation. Love them!! Used 3 shades of Orange Promarkers and them used the Pro Nib with the Chestnut Promarker to go over the linage. Also tried the new Flexmarkers just for the skin. Jury still out on this one. They are very pale and not a great selection of colours right now. I'm not overexcited about the nib either and feel the pen is quite chunky to hold. Personal opinion but I know I'll still get the new sets when they are released.
Anyway, heres my bookmark. Promarkers and Nibs both available from Crafty Emma's Store and an additional 20% discount for most stock. Other items used, BG scrap paper piece, flowers, glimmer mist, viva gold and orange pens, lace, chalk ink pad, prima flowers, punched leaves & butterfly brad.
As always, gorgeous cards from the rest of my teamies and I enjoyed playing with this colour combo.
Think I'll give the bookmark to my Zoe, always got a book on the go which cant be a bad thing.
Have a lovely weekend and thanks for stopping by today.
