Flowers and weddings

I love the simplicity of this Penny Black stamp. I coloured it using my promarkers, shading round the edge with faded jeans Distress ink. The papers were from my stash and the corners were embellished with a few rainbow drops (Crafty Notions).

A workmate asked me for a wedding card. She said it needed to be elegant and classy. I hope this is the sort of thing she had in mind! the Stamp was a freebie from the craft stamper many moons ago. I stuck a few flat backed pearls onto the cuttlebugged pearlised card.

Hi Sally, thanks for your lovely comment :) I agree yep we probably do have all our ideas when we dont have the time or energy to do things with them. Ahhh never mind, time will come. I love both of these cards they are both truly gorgeous. I especially like your penny black floral one its beautiful and springlike. I have no markers for colouring and was wondering which to buy when i next get some ready cash ( in june hopefully when i get birthday money lol ) anyway would you recommend these markers ? or prefer others ? It is something i have never bought before so recommendations are important
Hugs June xxx

Thanks for your lovely comments! June - It depends what you are wanting from a marker. I have a lot of Tombow ABTs, that are great for watercolouring, but I wanted some markers that were alcohol based and suitable for other surfaces. They are relatively bleed proof on smooth card and the range of colours is huge. I really like them, but I hsve never had any copics or other makes to try. These can be used on plastic and glass too. If you overlap a little when you are colouring it doesn't tend to show - makes my colouring look neater than it really is!

Thanks sally. What make are the alcohol based pens please ? they sound ideal for me. I have heard of marvey and copic but not sure about what to look for

Hi June
They are Letraset Promarkers. They come in sets or individually. Hobbycraft and Amazon sell them x
