** I've been shopping around for my birthday present (either from hubby or from myself, haven't decided yet!). I've been wanting copics or similar alcohol based markers for a while now as I like the more intense colours you get with them plus they are quick and easier for when you don't want to blend with paper stumps or watercolour etc. After thinking long and hard decided I wouldn't go for copics but a cheaper UK alternative, the letraset promarkers as I think they are good enough for what I need them for. Plus this way, the money I save can go towards other craft goodies :)
So, anyway, before I bought all the colours I wanted from Silly Monkeys (only place I could find which had such a big choice at a good price) thought I'd best try some out first to make sure I'm happy with them, so popped to my local art store today and got a few to try and this is my first card made with them. It is also why it's a christmas card as the limited colours I had dictated the colour scheme of the card!
Still need practice using them but that's half the fun but happy enough for me to have ordered the rest I wanted. Just need to wait for them to come now, can't wait!Need to go and do my DT cards now. Not having made anything over the weekend has really put me behind!
