An Award and some colouring!


Are you anything like me where you can never quite decide what your favourite colouring medium is? Copics are what I use most as I thought they were my favourite, then I'll go threw my Prisma Pencil stage and decide I like them better. Well, now I'm onto Promarkers and think they are brilliant.
Last night I didn't feel like making a card so inked up one of my many unused stamps and decided to have a little play with my Promarkers as I'd just taken delivery of some of the new colours that have just been released. (Lovin the Caramel). "Doraline" has a coloured image included with the stamp so I randomly chose some Promarkers and started to play. Now I dont like to blow my own trumpet, but I think I did a pretty good job. The image above is the my version and the one below is the one that came with the stamp. I'm not the most experienced when it comes to Promarkers but I am pretty thrilled with how mine came out. Lots of blending and I mean lots. So if I have time this evening, I'm going to use this image and make a card.

BTW, forgot to mention I'm a GDT for the Promarker Challenge during October so please come and play along with the upcoming challenges. I'd love to see you there!!
Thanks for looking and hope I haven't bored you too much...

PS: Heres and award from the lovely Penni I got a few days ago. Thankyou so very much, It means alot..
