Having a think this week as to whether to go into the Promarkers buying. I have a total of three at the moment – Poppy, Bright Green and Canary. Not exactly a great selection but went for basic when I chose them. I am quite pleased with them and love the effect which I have seen others produce with them. I’m just a little worried that Promarkers might be a step too far for me. I am not an artist and have only basic colouring skills. Have just about mastered the watercolour effect with my pencils and get a bit worried about all this blending lark with the Promarkers. I am sure that I will end up with a lot of ‘mud’ on my cards! I was going to be brave and send off for a set or two but have now decided that I will get another couple of similar colours locally and a blending pen and see how I go on. If I make a mess then you will never know and I won’t have wasted much money and if the results are good then I am sure you will get to see my efforts and I will be buying more.
This is a very simple Christmas card I have to share today. Red base card with a piece of gold sticky paper off set. I have stamped the parcels from the free Creativity set and coloured in with a mixture of poppy Promarker , gold pen, green Marvy and a white gel pen. I have added a few gems and some peel-offs to finish. Voila! Quick and simple.
Thanks for looking and Happy Crafting.
