Karate Spencer

Morning Folks!
This week, the new challenge at Passion for Promarkers is  


I'm not a big sports fan but I do love watching tennis in the summer, I'm looking forward to the start of Wimbledon next week when not much crafting will be done! 

This time we are generously sponsored by

who are offering a $6 voucher to our lucky winner! They also kindly supplied the DT with some fab digi images to play with. Here's my card using the very handsome Spencer in Karate , as soon as I saw this image I had an idea of the card I wanted to make - monochrome and CAS with this cute bear as the focal point:

He was great fun to colour

I watched a couple of videos to try to figure out how to tie the ribbon to resemble the karate belt. It's hard to see but it does look quite similar in real life. All the paper is from my scraps folder, the stripey one is a magazine freebie and the dotty one is from Papermania capsule collection, it actually had a die cut circle missing from the centre but fortunately there was enough border left for this card. 

Don't forget to pop over to
 to see what the rest of the design team have made!
Get creating with your Letraset / Winsor & Newton markers and join us!! Remember you can enter any type of creation, it doesn't have to be a card.
