I Love Promarkers DT Card - Anything Goes

It's that time of the week again when we start a new challenge at I Love Promarkers, this week our theme is the ever popular "Anything Goes" and we're sponsored by Visible Image.  I was lucky enough to be sent this Elegant Emma stamp set by Visible Image, and I have to say that I has highly impressed with the quality, they're a joy to use and I really enjoyed colouring the image, which I've done with my Promarkers on Neenah Desert Storm last a kraft cardstock that doesn't bleed when coloured on with Pros.  This was the first time I'd tried it, I picked it up when I saw it in my local craft shop thinking it was worth a try.  I'm quite an "inky" colourer, layering up the colour to build intensity, which standard kraft doesn't like, but this stuff is super smooth and you can load it with ink to your heart's content.  Happy bunny!  I added a touch of white pencil to highlight the face, and I added some Glamour Dust to her jewelery.
 I used one of the smaller stamps from the set to stamp the diamond background along the top and right of the topper with Perfect Medium, I then heat embossed with clear powder and inked over with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.  The sentiment stamp is also from the same set, I heat embossed it too, onto lilac card and used the same ink round the edges.  I matted the topper and sentiment onto silver mirri, after distressing the edges with my Tim Holtz tool.
I started with a base layer of lilac card, which I outlined with a border of Milled Lavender Distress Stickles, I then added a layer of Papermania Capsule Collection paper from the Heather collection.  To embellish, I added some lace, ribbon, a large bow, a dazzler, gems, and a flower made with a Spellbinders die.
