Zoe provided the inspiration for our Summer card competition with her amazing NameScape pictures. Zoe hand draws all her pictures and uses Promarkers to colour them. She personalises each picture based on the recipient's hobbies, interests and experiences.
Follow the NameScape links to see further examples of her work. Here is the very detailed picture she drew for my daughter Emma for her 13th Birthday.

For our competition we chose to work with numbers rather than names. The challenge was to personalise them using a range of stamps and embellishments and obviously incorporate some of the Promarker techniques that Zoe demonstrated for us. She shared her knowledge (20 year's worth!) of using Promarkers to create light and shade and 3D effects, as well as her passion for the purple Promarkers! Here are some photos of you all in action following the demo.
Zoe also very kindly agreed to judge the finished cards, a job which she said she found very difficult because of the standard of the cards produced. Well done to everyone who took part. See below for the finished cards and...drum roll please...photos of the winners with their cards!
And the winners were:
Penny in third place with her 61st patchwork card that perfectly coordinates with her outfit! Well done Penny!
Sue in second place with her pink and purple glittery 20th card. Well done Sue! Penny and Sue both won a grown-up colouring book!
And the winner was Carol Shenton with her purple floral 60th card which also coordinates very well with her outfit! Carol won her membership back as well as a grown-up colouring book. Well done Carol!
Well done to everyone for rising to the challenge. And thank you again to Zoe. We hope to see you at Card Club again soon!
