Spring at Passion For Markers Challenge #683

 Hi Crafters,

It was the Spring equinox last week and I'm looking forward to some Spring weather, pretty blossoms, flourishing wildlife and all that goes with the onset of this glorious season. How apt then that our challenge at Passion For Markers this week is


We'd love to see all your Spring themed creations using your Markers of course.

Sunglasses at the ready... it's a bright one!

Coloured with Promarkers

I have wanted to try this shadow technique using letter dies for some time now but I always chicken out at the last minute not wanting to possibly spoil my coloured image by cutting into it with dies. So my heart was in my mouth as I fed the piece through my die cutting machine, I crossed everything and hoped for the best. I'm quite pleased although I think the letters are slightly wonky but not too bad for a first attempt.

Challenges I'd like to enter:

A gorgeous Spring card Lorraine, so bright and welcoming.

The bulbs think it's Spring, the birds and bunnies do so what happened to the weather, raining yet again.
