Passion for promarkers challenge 207....Create a scene..

Afternoon peeps!!

I have just got myself up out of bed as I was working last night so this post is a squidgey bit late!! 
Its time for a new challenge over on the Passion for Promarkers challenge blog and this week is h as been set by Lou from Team 1 and she has chosen...

 create a scene” 
(i.e. a cloud background,some grass and flowers or even snow or sand on the ground etc.) 

 As long as your image has some form of a scene around it you’ll be fine.  Don’t forget, as always, to be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Letrasetproducts (i.e. promarkers, flex markers, aqua markers, tria markers, metallic markers or neon markers) and of course follow the theme.

I decided to go with a little magnolia pirate pressie for Mo. In the holidays I  always send him some little treats through the post and he LOVES pirates so I made him a little treat box.

My 'create a scene' comes in the form of a little mossy sea wall for edwin to sit on and of course a cloudy sky with seagulls! I think he looks so happy sat there!!

I stamped and coloured him and then got to work on the wall using Burnt sienna,cocoa,caramel and sandstone for the bricks on the wall. I then added some little patches of green moss using pear green,olive green and holly and then went back over the top with my sandstone. I love how it came out.

Then it was on to some super fluffy clouds using midnight blue, denim blue,pastel blue and dotting with my blender pen.The seagulls I just drew with my letraset finepoint marker.

Once I had finished the little pirate scene I had some folding fun making the cute little box....
 I used nitwits fbq Aye Aye Captain for this box and some good old black card! 
 Here he is just peeking out at you!! lol!!! and just below shows the edge I created using the negative cut from the Die-namics notched border die.

 The little waves actually form a little pocket for me to pop a little note for Mo in.....
 and the little draws are made using some blank matchboxes I bought from The Range a while ago. I am going to fill them with teeny treats before I post it to Mo!!!
ooh I almost forgot!! Edwin is coloured up in the following colours...

skin- blush, sunkissed pink, coral.
greys- cool grey 1-5,
top- pastel beige, khaki, poppy,crimson,burgundy.

I am popping this little treat box over in the Anything Goes challenge over on the Here Come the Boys challenge blog.

So that's me for today peeps! I am going to go get myself a cuppa and a bit of fruit for breakfast. I was going to take Poppy out for a womble in the meadow before picking Mo up but she just isn't liking the heat today at all so I am going to wait until the temp drops later before venturing out there with her!

Have an awesome rest of the day peeps and thank you so much for popping in on me!

huge hugs Lou xxxx
