PASSION FOR PROMARKERS CHALLENGE #397: MAKE A KINETIC CARD


Its time for another exciting challenge at Passion for ProMarkers, and this week, our talented Nat has chosen the theme: Make a Kinetic Card!  Be sure to also check out the incredible inspiration the rest of the design team have created for you!

Here's my creation for the week:



I saw a great shed-type card on Pinterest some time ago, which I wanted to try, and I thought it would perfectly match one of the Paper Shelter stamps, called Motorcycle Mechanic, which I have coloured with ProMarkers.  I added a gear and a silver brad to the motorcycle.

To make the actual card, I used papers from the DCWV Good Wood stack, and docrafts Mr Smith's Workshop, as well as a sheet of corrugated foil.  I added tiny little brads from the Mr Smith's Workshop collection to the shed doors, and a door handle from Prima's Tiny Junkyard Findings collection.  Inside the shed, I added water pipe parts from Prima's Junkyard Findings collection, a lightbulb from Ribtex, a toolbox, hammer and spanner brads from Eyelet Outlet, and tools hanging from a shelf, from the Mr Smith's Workshop collection.  The actual shelf was cut from a small kebab stick.




And now onto the 'moving parts' of my card...


I have used 3 little Tim Holtz gears with a tiny brad through the centre of each to hold it in place, but still allowing it to spin around the brad.  They have been placed with their teeth interlocking.  I have then glued a spanner to one of the brads, so that when you twirl the spanner, all 3 gears rotate against each other.





I had a lot of fun making this card, and I can't wait to see what you come up with this week!  All Dressed Up is offering our lucky winner 2 digi images of their choice this week, so be sure to enter the challenge!

COQUETTE


I have used a Paper Shelter digi called Coquette, and coloured her with ProMarkers.  I've added tiny pearls to her choker and shoes.

My papers are all from the Stamperia Atelier pack, which is absolutely stunning!  I stitched around the edges of every piece, so I've taken a few close-up shots  - the paper is so detailed, its almost impossible to see without a close-up.

My pearl swirls are by Want 2 Scrap.  I've used an assortment of flowers, including Prima and Green Tara.  There's a pearl string, a strip of cheesecloth and odd pearls here and there.

PINK GEM CHRISTMAS



This card showcases my favourite Christmas colours, which are either pink with cream/browns, or blue with cream/browns.  I've used both pink and blue on this one.

I have used 3 Pink Gem Designs cuties, called Christmas Charlie; Christmas Kitty & Friend; and Christmas Millie.  I have coloured them with ProMarkers, with added Glossy Accents to the berries sweets and bauble.  I did a few of the tiny details with gel pens - like the tassels on the scarf.  I also cut up a few little pom poms for their hats, and used Liquid Pearls for the snow.

The frame around them is a Spellbinders die.  My papers are from 2 Maja Design packs: I Wish, and Vintage Frost Basics.  I used a Martha Stewart punch for the snowflake border.  My flowers are Petaloo.
