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!).
