Pearly flowers and a giveaway

It's my turn to post on the Letraset blog today, click to see how I got the pearly sheen on these watercoloured flowers, and see my other card for today



Now I have a treat for one of you. An artists set of watercolour markers - you get Raspberry, Mahogany, Sunburst Yellow, Fern Green, Peacock Blue and Cranberry, plus a black fineliner pen, a tips and technique sheet, and six large sheets of watercolour paper PLUS a set of six neon watercolour markers - you get Spark Red, Electric Pink, Radiant Orange, Luminous Yellow, Glowing Green and Volt Blue, so between the two sets you will have all you need to do some great watercolouring

**Note that I have taken the Artists set out of the original packaging, which adds to the postage costs, and as I pay for the postage myself, it's a little economy that I hope you'll understand, they are, of course, brand new and unused**

All you have to do is leave your name below this post, and pop over to the Letraset blog to leave a comment. Good luck, I will, as always, post worldwide and draw a winner next Thursday 


Talking of winners, look at this lovely thank you card I received yesterday from Cheryl, who won one of the blending sets recently. She is a faithful blog friend to me, and I so appreciated this card. Thank you Cheryl x 



I'm busy packing our bags - we are off to the Lake district on Saturday for a week's break, so looking forward to it, but I'll be making a few posts over the week. See you  tomorrow x

  13. Your shimmery poppies turned out wonderful, Enfys, and I love your quick background. I recently won this artist set of Aquamarkers and have only had just a little play with them, but the colours blend beautifully, creating wonderful new colours. I also used some of these pens on this card for SYS2, where you can also see how the colours blended into a lovely purple: http://marianne-cards-n-stuff.blogspot.gr/2014/08/tms262-and-sys2-bonus-day.html
