I ♥ Promarkers #104 - with new Spring 2012 limited edition colours!


Good morning everyone, and welcome to the latest I ♥ Promarkers challenge. Thanks for all your fabulous  entries for last week's Love & Kisses Challenge .. you were all obviously loved up, so don't forget to check the main challenge blog to see if you are a winner or top 3!

This week's challenge is

Nature

and we are sponsored by Stampeezee



who are offering a £10 online store voucher :-) for one lucky randomly drawn winner.

The challenge theme has given me the perfect opportunity to showcase for all you Promarker lovers my brand new Letraset Spring 2012 Limited Edition Promarker set ... it is filled with fabulous spring colours of nature - Daffodil Bloom, March Hare, Morning MistFresh Meadow, Budding Rose and April Shower.  I bought my set  as soon as they went online and set myself the challenge of colouring my image for this week's card just using the new colours. Here's the result ...


Now I must say that the bear is not exactly the colour I would usually pick, but overall I think this image illustrates that the new set is very pretty and versatile ... the colours all have a really soft vintagey look. The only colours I used apart from the new Limited Edition set were a little Antique White flexmarker on the bear's face and tummy, a tiny bit of cool grey 1 Promarker on his specs, and the blender. I also distressed the edges of my image by smudging with a little blue ink to soften, and matting onto deckle-cut card.

Media: Promarkers, Flexmarker,
Papers: Prima "Botanicals";
