Fancy some Promarkers?




Well, long time no blog! First it was New Year, then it was painting the garage and getting rid of a battalion of spiders who were lurking in the murky corners, then it was a particularly vicious virus/cold/flu that has knocked me totally off my feet for a few days, so feeling very sorry for myself at the moment...but to cheer us all up, how would you like to win two sets of ProMarkers to start the new year off with a bang....one set of skin tones 1 - soft peach, ivory, satin, almond, putty and coral, and one set of skin tones 2 - cinnamon, tan, burnt sienna, spice, blush and dusky pink. All you have to do is leave your name under this post, and I will pick a random winner on Sunday. Your comment won't show up straightaway, I am being driven mad by spam comments, google scoops them up, but I get an email every time, so I am switching comment moderation on. You won't have to do that silly word verification though, just a delay on your comment being published... Good luck!




These skin tones aren't just for skin of course, I used them on this Saturated Canary image for skin, hair, top and boots. The balloons are covered in glossy accents, so they pop in real life....


Go over and see the great bargains on Flexmarkers at the Letraset site at the moment, they are 50% off, which means you get 6 pens for only $9.58 which works out at $1.60 per pen, makes Copics look a bit expensive..... I much prefer the brush tip of the Flexmarkers to the Copic nib, it is easier to control for fine detail, but if you have some Copics, you can use Flexmarkers alongside them, they will blend with any other alcohol ink system. No tax to pay, and free worldwide shipping...must be the bargain of the week (I'm putting the $ amount here, because all you promarker fans in the UK know what a good deal they are :)


Hopefully, spiders and other bugs permitting I will be back to my craft desk tomorrow, I have a couple of tight deadlines to meet and need to get back into the swing of things.

Cough, splutter, sneeze.....see you tomorrow x

  36. Sorry to hear about the spam, Enfys - I'm getting a lot at the moment on my business blog but not, thank goodness, on my craft blog. And I'm finding the Google spam trap isn't picking it all up and is also marking some genuine comments as spam. Very frustrating!
    Is your giveaway open worldwide? I'm in the UK and would love to join in if that's OK. Jane Willis

  78. I'm so sorry you've been sick. The flu has become an epidemic in the states now and is a really nasty strain of the virus. Of course that wasn't anything you didn't already know firsthand. Did you have a flu shot? Your card is adorable. I've always wished I could color like you do. Stay well.

  103. Hope the trip home went okay Enfys, shame you've been hit hard by the lurgy. It's going around the UK, I've just come down with the snuffles tonight, so I'm hoping it's not going to hit me too hard! Love the card you did especially using mostly colours from the two packs you're offering. I did something similar recently, where I used colours only from the 'seasons' 4 pack that was released just before Christmas. You can check out the post here if you're interested - http://craftykiwimama.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/tiets-club-and-saturated-canary.html. Hope you feel better really soon hun. Hugs, Wends x

  104. Loved the swing card made with the Cameo. Great tip on the Pro-markers. Those prices are much more reasonable than the Copic's. I've not tried coloring yet, but my first class is coming up in two weeks at the Scrapbook Expo here in Anaheim.
