Hi Crafters,

The weeks are flying by and it's time to share my Design Team inspiration card with you for the new challenge at Passion For Promarkers.

A nice and easy challenge for you to play with this time as we would like to see...


...on your project. Now it can be anything you like eg. scrapbook layout, card, gift bag, 3D project etc. as long as you use your Winsor Newton Promarkers, Flexmarkers, Tria markers, Aqua markers or Metallic markers and follow the theme. Please tell us in your post where you have used your markers to help the DT when we visit to comment thanks.

I have coloured this lovely image creating a Get Well card, I've left the front clean and simple to emphasise the pretty image. There are black dots on the image following the lines of the leaves and I have used these to add my pearls for the theme.
