New Dawn, New Day a little more concentration!

 This is another entry for the Passion for Promarkers Challenge, I managed to sit and work on the idea of dawn being "a new day" to fit the New Beginnings theme.
Having rummaged through all my stamps looking for some inspiration I came up with a Judikins Cube "Africa" with a lovely sunrise, this gave me the idea and also the opportunity to use my sunray embossing folder.

Promarkers have to be used for this challenge, I wanted a water colour effect on the stamp but I only have Promarkers so I scribbled on a wax sheet, added some blending solution to the colours and painted them onto the image.  The sun and reflection were clear embossed and the image mounted onto a small square which was edged with amber promarker.  The sunray was embossed on card and coloured with promarkers in tulip yellow and amber, a greeting was printed, edged with amber, and fastened under the sunray the image was fastened with 3D sticky fixers.  I lightly coloured round the edge of the panel with pale blue chalk.  The panel was then mounted on a card which had the outside edge coloured with blue promarker.

Another dull slightly misty day here today, not ideal for photos but I think they give a fair representation of the card.
