Passion For Promarkers Challenge #285 - Letters of the Alphabet (Anything Goes)

Hi Crafters,
Sorry I haven't been around much this week but I have been trying to limit my internet time. I have a lot of orders to get finished and find that too many unproductive hours slip by whilst sitting in front of my screen, lol. More discipline needed I think. Normal service will be resumed shortly and I will visit soon, promise.
So on to today, I am here to share with you my DT card for Passion For Promarkers and this week we are sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps who are offering a $21 voucher as their prize.
I went with 'B' is for Birthday and here is my card.

Woodware Stamp - Huge Happy Birthday
Inky Doodles Stamp - Leafy Background
Stampin' Up Corner and Border Punch
I love this large Woodware stamp, it is so versatile. I stamped and embossed it to give a raised edge to the letters and then I masked off the words and stamped my background. I then coloured it with my Promarkers ( puzzlingly in real life the colours are more blended but somehow the camera has picked up the shade differences :/ ) added shading around the letters so that it gives a 3d illusion and used glitter to highlight the tops of the letters. It's also quite flat for posting too. 
Sister Act - #94 ATG
Creative Fingers - #68 ATG
Fussy and Fancy - #133 Tic Tac Toe
(Bottom row - Sentiment, Wet emboss, Sparkle)
Addicted To CAS - #57 Mask
Addicted To Stamps - #98 Embossing Dry or Heat
OSAAT - #231 ATG with Birthday's
Eureka Stamps - #129 Birthday Cards
Check out the rest of the DT's creations on the blog, they have done some fabulous work this week. Please come and join us in our challenge, remember you must use your Letraset markers to be in with a chance of winning the prize.
See you all soon,
