I love all of the coloring and blending that many are doing on their stamped images. They are simply gorgeous! These crafters make the images look so real and that makes them pop right off the page. I really wanted to try my hand at this but the Copic markers were just a little too expensive for me! (Ok, I know that I could’ve bought a ton of them with the $$$ that I have spent on Cricut related stuff but when I’m on a roll with something I can’t just turn and go in a different direction on a whim. That’s my story and I’m sticking with it!) Anyway, I still want to try it. With all of the stamps and stamp sets that I own it would really be a waste not to (Boy, see how easy it is to talk myself into something?) But there is another brand of markers called ProMarkers made by Letraset. They contain high quality alcohol dye based inks that are fully blendable and produce clear and vibrant color. I first saw them on two of my favorite blogs, Diane’s at Capadia Designs and Okie’s at Okie Ladybugs Scrap N’ More. Both of these talented ladies had a link to Enfys at Going Buggy. Enfys does wonderful work and has a lot of tutorials and, even better for me, videos of how she uses these great markers. Enfys also has a terrific giveaway on her blog right now. She is giving away an entire set of 148 ProMarkers! Look HERE to see their awesome marker colors! So hop on over to Going Buggy to leave a comment on her post to enter to win.
Until next time, Happy Crafting,
