Hot Colours at I ❤️ ProMarkers

Good Morning all crafters out there
It’s Wednedsay and time for a new challenge at
I ❤️ ProMarkers
First of all I’d like to say congratulations to the Winner and the Top 3
This weeks theme is to use
Hot Colours
- a rather tough one for me, as I most work in «paler shades», but I actually found it quite fun to use bold and bright colours 😊

I used DPs from Basic Grey and My Minds Eye on a cardbase of Bazzill Kraft cardstock. For the front of the card I cut the paper from MME into narrow strips. Then I inked the edges on them and glued them down to the BGpaper (can you imagine what my fingers looked like after inking all those tiny paperstrips!)
I used Spellbinders Scalloped circles Large to cut out the image ande the greetingpanels inside.
Around the image I put on some Shabby White- and Aged Copper Embossing Enamel.
I didn’t think I had any «Hot Coloured» flowers, but looking through my stash I found lots of them (and lots of forgotten stash… fun)
On the edge Of the cardfront I used Martha Stewarts Floral Wine deep edge punch. Looking closely you can see the pearls I put into the center of the Florals.

The stamped greeting (Norsk Stempelblad) inside is embossed with copperpowder:

Same papers on all sides of the card: 

ProMarkers used to colour the image:
Skin: Ivory, Dusky Pink, Tan, Blush
Hair: Gold, Walnut, Terracotta
Eyes: Walnut
Shirt: Spice, Honeycomb
- and a little touch of Blender
