A few weeks ago I got to a Hobbycraft store and they had Promarkers on sale so I bought 2 sets (skin accents and pastels) and then I was lucky enough to win a set of the summer 2012 colours. I have always used pencil crayons but yesterday decided to have a go with these pens. As I only have a total of 15 different colours I found it a bit limiting and also I found there is a lot more colour than I'm used to, as with pencils I keep building up the colour and get a much softer finish. But I was reasonably pleased with my first attempt and so decided to make it into a card. I suppose I shall just have to buy a few more different colours and just keep practicing!!
I followed the sketch from Dies to Die For
I've used a Mo Manning image coloured with Promarkers - although I have no idea which colours I used as I just kept picking them up and trying them out.... and I finished it off by dusting the edges with blue chalk. The background papers are from Raspberry Road Designs and I used Marianne Design Creatables dies LR0201 for the border. LR0156 for the leaves, LR0111 for the flowers and Craftable CR1216 flower border. The ribbon, gold peel-off sentiment and gems in the centre of the flowers are from my stash.
I shall enter this in the following challenges
