DT LOTV Challenge #60 + A Sneekpeek & My Promarker Debut

Since we decided to have a new challenge every week at Lili of the Valley's Challenge Blog, we decided to go for a theme and a sketch every other week :)
And for this Challenge #60, we have come up with a great theme for you: All 4 Seasons!!!
Since LOTV has a huge range of image stamps, it shouldn't be to difficult to find stamps to suite all 4 of the year's seasons, should it?

Lili of the Valley is soon going to releese a new collection of Christmas stamps:
 LOTV Christmas Animals!!! And today some of the DT's will show you sneekpeeks from the new collection - so don't forget to visit all of the other talented little fairies to get some peeks of the new cuties :)
Do also visit the LOTV's Ideas to Inspire Blog to get some peeks during the next days!

I have to admit, I've not exactly been a fan of animal stamps before, but when I saw the new James the Bear Christmas images, I fell in looove :) And even more, after they made my promarker colouring "finally" work :)
I've always sworn to my Distress Inks when it comes to colouring, but when I was in Leksand earlier this summer together with my friend Maya, I finally "gave in", and bought my self some Promarkers, after reciving a handfull of them as a gift from Lisa *hugs* :) During the summer I've bought some more, and now I have about 60 Promarkers (and I know I will buy several more :)
So, during my last week of Summer holliday, I finally got some time to practice with my Promarkers...
The first one ended up in the trash...so did the other one...and the third...and the fourth...and even the fift!!!
Nearly giving up, but then I decided to try out this little cutie called James the Bear "In the Snow" from LOTV, and suddenly it all fell in to places :)
So, here it is; My Promarker debut - and a sneekpeek of James the Bear "In the Snow" from Lili of the Valley's Christmas Collection II - Christmas Animals:

Recipe:
Size: 15 x 15 cm
Ink: Archival Ink - Jet Black, Distress Ink - Black Soot & Weathered Wood for inking the edges.

Tools: Spellbinders - Nesting Classic & Scalloped Squares + Classic Circles, EK Success - edge punch, Martha Stewart - snowflake punch, glue pads to get a bit of a 3D effect on the image.

I know I'll need lots of more practecing to get the light/shadows right,
but I think I'm on my way, or what? :)
I'm also entering this card in to these following challenges:

Marianne sa...

Åååå, hvor skal en begynne??? NYYYDELIG kort!!!! Et skjønt motiv, som gatantert snart blir mitt, selv om jeg også pleier å hoppe galant over bamsebjørnene:) Men dette falt jeg for!
Og så er det fargeleggingen da...himmel såååå flott...Jeg tipper det ligger masse lekkert i søpla di også Lena!
Og så fniiiser jeg litt for meg selv. Dette var jenta si som aaaldri skulle ha tusjer...hihi:)

Ha en strålende dag vennen.
Masse klemmer fra Marianne:)

Kaia sa...

Åhh, det var vel vakkert!!!!!
Nydelig fargelagt motiv, som lene, så liker jeg også veldig godt blå julekort...
Det er ikke lett å farge med promarkers altså??? jeg har så lyst å prøve noe annet enn distress, men aner ikke hva som er "best".
Du har i allefall "knekt promarkerkoden" det er nå sikkert.
Ha en super torsdag.
Klem fra Kaia

Ellen sa...

Åå, han var da søt!:)Jeg er også der, at jeg ikke er spes. glad i dyre motiver, men når de blir som denne søtingen, så kunne jeg klart det!:)).
Ser ut som du er en av de som takler det meste, innen kort og fargelegging! Skulle tro du hadde gjort dette i evigheter!
Jeg likte også veeldig godt papiret med stjerner på..men det er kanskje "gammelt"?:).
Gleder meg til å se flere Promaker-motiv:).
-skulle kanskje ha begytn å bruke noen av mine 70 stk. også!:))).
Ha en flott dag.
Klem,ellen:)

Squirrel x sa...

Oh Lena, I think I am in love! This LOTV ted is just to die for, can't wait for him to be released. Your card is stunning and your colouring is complete perfection. Brilliant. Hugs, Sxx

Jeanette Tinholt sa...

Dette synes jeg var helt nydelig fargelagt, veldig imponert over at du kun har fargelagt med Promarkere i kort tid:-) Ser ut som du har gjort det i evigheter...Og bamsen er utrolig søt, ikke noe problem å like dyremotiver når de ser ut som han:-)

Takk for at du også skriver hvilke farger du har benyttet, det hjelper oss andre som innimellom står litt fast når det gjelder fargekombinasjoner ;-)

Ha en fin dag:-)

Klem

Yvonne sa...

Ja, ja, noen har det bare. Talent for farging altså. Jeg er ikke akkurat bestevenn med mine ProMarkere, og ikke engang etter forsøk nr 106 kunne jeg fått til noe så flott som dette! Bamsen er helt nydelig farget!
Hele kortet er nydelig. Herlige farger, og skjønne detaljer med stjernene og sløyfene.
Fikk jammen lyst på denne krabaten jeg og, men så var det det med fargingen da...
Ha en super dag!
Klem

Gunilla/Nilla sa...

Det är verkligen en fröjd att kika in i din blogg.
Alltid lika välgjorda och vackra alster.
Den lilla nallen är ljuvligt söt och helt perfekt färglagd. Upplägget på kortet och alla detaljer är verkligen en fröjd för ögat.

Ha en fin dag.
Kram//Gunilla

Pysselbus sa...

Himmel!! Vad snyggt!! Du har ju lyckats såååå bra med PMna!! Och motivet är ju såååå sött! Använder du en blender till dina PM? Har testat PM med MCP-teknik men är inte nöjd... Distresserna är bättre!

Kram

Camilla sa...

Wow dette mestrer du som en proff!! Hehe litt morsomt å lese om tusjefobien din, jeg har hatt det på samme måte, men er på en rar måte blitt litt "addicted" til tusjene...!:)
Lurt å begynne med motiv som er lette å fargelegge, så tar du de andre også etterhvert! Gleder meg til å se flere PM-kort fra deg! Men tror du Distressene blir utryddet nå???:}
Ha en herlig helg i vente!!
Stor klem fra Camilla
