Friday Sketchers #13, Rainbow Lady #24 & Spoonful of Sugar #10

Combining challenges here again. This week at Friday Sketchers it's Kimmie from Canada's turn to set the sketch - and it's really fabby as usual! I have used these brilliant High Hopes stamps to fall in with the theme from A Spoonful of Sugar which is "Animal Magic" and Cynthia from Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog wants you to use Swirls and Flourishes, which this lovely paper from the K&Co 12x12 Wild Saffron pad certainly has in abundance.

This is the first card I have made using my new Promarkers and am pleasantly surprised at how easy they are to use. It will take a while before I am completely happy with the results but the shading on the foliage in the background was just so easy to do with the markers and I am especially pleased with the effect on the "wooden" sentiment. Let me know what you think - I really want pointers please from all you alcohol marker experts. Thanks for looking. Lol

Oh wow Lynn this is brilliant, just doing some colouring now but it looks nowhere near as good as this. Love the shading on the tree and the foliage, and agree with you that wooden sentiment looks just so real. Well done, its brilliant
