Shades of Grey at the Passion for Promarkers Challenge

Good Morning to you all my wonderful crafty friends.
I do hope all is well with you and you are having a good week so far.
A warm welcome to my new followers too, thank you so much for joining me.

I have 2 posts today so I'd better get straight down to business.
Today is the start of a new Passion for Promarkers Challenge
This week our fun theme is 
Shades of Grey 
 (monochromatic grey colouring)

Our sponsor is the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps
Prize for the lucky winner is 7 digi stamps of the winners choice.

I recently purchased this wonderful image from Pollycraft (which has now sadly closed.) so when I saw the theme I knew he would be ideal. I made the faux screws with Card Candi coloured with Promarkers and a pencil line down the centre.

Items Used:
Digi Stamp - Pollycraft (now closed) coloured with Promarkers
Sentiment - Big Sentiments by Paula Pascual
Papers - Dovecraft Monochrome
Embossing Folders - Stars Crafts Too
- Chevrons Crafter's Companion.
Card Candi

If your pop over to the Passion for Promarkers Challenge you will see the wonderful creations made by the rest of this week's design team

I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:

Pan Pastels - Shades of Grey
Created With Love Challenges - Anything Goes
Tammy's Scrappin Corner - Anything Goes
Scribble and Scrap - Anything Goes

Thank you for taking the time to stop and look at my blog this morning, I really do appreciate it and love to read any comments you may wish to make.
I'll be back a bit later with my GDT card for Papertake Weekly
Bye for now.

My goodness Sue, only you could work this type of magic with monochromatic grey! The robot is adorable (and perfectly colored). Your card design is nothing short of spectacular. The way you turned the Candi into faux screws is brilliant. All of the embossing is marvelous, too. You're something else, my talented friend! Fantastic card, as always. :o)

Wow, Sue!! What a fabulous monochromatic creation!! I love this Pollycraft cutie!!! I have to say, I was so super sad to hear they were closing as I had just found them a few weeks prior & love all of the images!!! I purchased the giant bundle before the shop closed, but I'm just truly saddened that there won't be any new designs in the future. :((

Ok, back you your card... Which is awsome !! Love the robot!!
Spot on coloring !! & great faux screws!!! Xo
