In the Blue and New Promarker Storage!

Good Afternoon! I have just stopped in to share my very first attempt and colouring with Distress inks with you. I am really quite pleased with the results. I had tried previously but stopped after i had done the skin as my card was awful. I got my new Fabriano pad in the post yesterday so spent the day colouring. This thought was the very first try..just shows that anyone can do it!!

My Belles n Whistles stamps called "Patches and Braids" is new too. I had a bit of a shopping spree last week! She is so she cute and is a great image for all occasions i think. Looking close at my colouring i can see bits of shading that are not that great but overall i was happy with it. Practice makes perfect and oh my god, colouring with the inks is very addictive!

Card Recipe
Image - Belles n Whistles, Patches n Braids coloured with distress inks
Papers/cardstock - MME Lost and Found, Portobello Road and blue and white Cardstock.
Dies and Punches - Various Marianne design dies and TimHoltz "On The Edge".
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Embellishments - Charm, gems ribbon from stash.
Sentiment - Personal Impressions

I also got myself a new storage system for my Promarkers while on my shopping spree. Check this out... 
It looks impressive with them all set out like that. Its so easy just to  Only thing it it only holds 60 pens and i have over 100 so for now i have some in the wicker box beside my Flexmarkers. I am going to buy another rack the same but having the two of them will take up some room so going to need to get a shelf put up for them. I didnt realise i actually had so many. I dont think i have that many Promarkers left to get but i am in love with the Flexmarkers at the moment.
EDIT - Lots of people asking where i got the storage from. It was on Ebay. They do lots of sizes. Its a lady who's husband made her it because she couldnt find a storage system she liked and because its so fab they have started to sell them. Just Fab!

Back to my card... I would to enter it into the following challenges;

  1. Hi Lynne, your card is sooo beautiful! Your colouring looks perfect!

    Ooh, now where did you get that fab storage?

  2. Yeah I'd like to know where it came from too, it looks great! Really beats rummaging for the colour you need which is inevitably right at the bottom of the drawer (where I store mine)! Love the card too, the colouring is really soft and pretty.
