Sugar Nellie Challenge


Heres my card for this weeks challenge at Spoonful of Sugar which is 3 Ribbons. The rules have changed and I thought I'd take advantage just this once and used a Pink Petticoat Design which I have again coloured with Promarkers. The backing paper is K & Co and used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the background. 3 strips of different colour ribbons, a sentiment and flower and brad! I've had a chance to play with both the Promarkers and Copics this weekend as I wanted to work out if there really was any difference between the 2. IMO, they both colour the same but the Promarkers have a thinner nib compared with the Ciao Copic Markers which makes it easier when colouring detailed area's, but I do find the lids on the Promarkers can be quite difficult to get off so maybe not so good if you have a weak hand. The Copics seem to have a softer nib so all in all not alot of difference, but seem to be working more with the Promarkers mainly because of the smaller nib and the pen itself has a solid feel to it as its more chunky. Dont know if this is any help to any of you but thought I'd give my opinion. Just gonna check out this weeks challenges before going to bed, kids back at school in 3 days, cant come soon enough as mine had an extra week off as well for our holiday to Florida.
