Passion for Promarkers #6

I got my first Promarkers at Newbury Art Stamps at the weekend and decided to give them a go. I've had trouble getting to grips with Copics and though it was worth trying a different brand. I've found them easier to colour with as they don't seem so "juicy", maybe if I use my Copics more they will work better. But I took to the Promarkers from the word go and decided to enter Passion for Promarkers Challenge, even though I only have one of the colours in the combination of poppy and moss :). I follow Debbi's blog, one of the Passion for Promarkers Design Team, she does wonderful tutorials that I've found very helpful, thanks! Of course when I finished the card I noticed that it must also include something tasty. I'm going to ask you to use your imagination a little here :). Inside the box that the Sugar Nellie girl is holding, she has chocolates and, of course, what could be more tasty :)

The image is "A gift for you" from Sugar Nellie, kindly sent to me by my blogging Sistah Vanja
who has made some awesome cards with her. I've coloured her with poppy, meadow green and pastel yellow for her hair, with gold on the ribbon of her chocolates. The flowers and the organza ribbon are all coloured with Promarkers to match. The background papers are Artylicious, from my Graphicus Guild membership pack. I've not put a sentiment on it yet; I think the colours look quite Christmassy and I'm thinking about making it a Christmas card (yes I know it's only July, these things creep up on you!).


  1. Hi Anne, what a bonny card - am glad you're liking the promarkers. Remember to check PfP every Friday for more tutorials, hints and tips

  2. Hi Anne fab card, your colouring is great, love the blonde hair, thanks for playing along at PFP.



  3. Hi Anne, what an adorable card. You've definitely taken to promarkers - you're colouring is fab. Love your imagination (chocs in the box lol). Thanks for joining us at PFP this week. Hugs, Denise x

  4. This is darling! I have to ask what the difference is between the Copics and the Promarkers besides "juiciness?" Great job on this card though. As I said, she's darling. And yes, there ARE chocolates in there! I can smell them from here!

  6. Oh what a fabulous card, love the image you've used. Thanks for joining us this week at PFP. Hugs Michele x

  7. Hi Anne, it's really interesting to hear what you've said about Copics and Promarkers, 'cos I'm currently sitting on the fence wondering which to buy. Promarkers seem easier to achieve a shaded look with, they look less flat on images, and you've done a great job here as a newbie. Her hair looks really good I notice, so you are swaying me. There are some great tutorials out there in Blogland too aren't there for Promarkers. Judith x

  8. Gorgeous card - very well done with your first go with PMs. Thanks for joining us at PFP.
