Friday Sketchers - Sketch 13

This weeks sketch over on Friday Sketchers has been provided by Kimmie from Canada.
While in Hobby Craft on Thursday morning I picked up a pack of Letraset Promarkers, and this is my first ever card with them. I only have 10 colours....but have some skin tones and 6 colours on the way. I am impressed, they are easy to use, and I think the results are fab. Not sure how they compare to the well loved Copics...I thought they were way to expensive. At £1.80 per pen (http://www.sillymonkeycrafts.co.uk/) which is the cheapest I have found...even cheaper than buying from the Letraset website. I also used my fabby new Cuttlebug.....yes I succumbed and bought one. CraftsULove (http://www.craftsulove.co.uk/) had a promotion...£49.99...so even though I was going to wait until after our holiday...it was too good an offer to miss. Obviously I couldn't just buy the bug....I needed some embossing folders.....and after my holiday I want to get some Nestabilities.

Anyway, for the card I have used Basic Grey "Cupcake" papers with Bazzill cardstock embossed with the "Spots & Dots" folder. All images are Magnolia and the sentiment is by Hero Arts. The final touch was some button brads by Karen Foster which were part of an old ScrapaGoGo kit.

So all in all....I am loving the new Letraset Promarkers, and cannot wait to build my collection of colours.
