Dream Big...

Do you ever have an idea of exactly how something should look -just not quite sure how to achieve it?? Well that was this card for the DT at  I LOVE PROMARKERS which is sponsored by MilkCoffee Digital Stamps. I chose this image called Charlotte at Paper Ship. You can find her here

I loved this image straight away but I didn't see a boat floating on water... I saw a girl asleep dreaming and her imaginary boat on a cloud. The theme for this weeks challenge is BUGS and I really wanted to make it look like the butterflies were Fireflies glowing in the moon ... but I didn't really think how I would achieve this... and I'm not happy with the "moonlight" from the top right corner or the butterflies but I do like how Charlotte shimmers. I used a Clear Wink Of Stella pen and Stickles around the Bugs.

Card Recipe -
Back ground Paper is Doodlebug. Image was printed onto some news print paper from Pebbles "Front Porch" collection. I added a cream ribbon which was accented with a resin bow. The swirly gems are from Create and Craft Rhinestone. The letter stickers are from Doodlebug and it took me ages to decide what greeting to put on it!

The Promarkers I used are -
Boat - WarmGrey1, 3 & 5
Skin - Coral, Soft Peach, Blush, Antique white with Cocktail and baby pink on her cheeks.
Hair - Primrose, Buttercup & Pineapple Crush.
Cloud - Blue Grey 1 & 3
Dress - Lavender, Orchid, Amethyst & Purple.
