Happy Monday Bloggers,
Debbi Glennie (Promarker Queen) for the huge box of goodies I won in her recent giveaway. As I said to Debbi, it'll keep me busy throughout the summer holidays when my teenage kids are lying in their beds for half the day! Check out Debbi's blog for great tutorials on using your Letraset markers. She's also got another giveaway at the moment too.
Okay now on to the 'experiment'. I really wanted to use the metallic markers which I received from Debbi. I did a couple of things - first I silver embossed some Hero Arts butterflies onto black paper which I then coloured in with the markers.
I then swiped the markers onto a piece of acetate which I then dabbed with a baby wipe to soften the lines. You need to set this aside to dry as the markers are water based, hence don't dry as quickly as alcohol markers.
And here is the finished card (sorry, the photo is a bit 'glarey' with all the embossing, bling, miri card and acetate!) ...
I'd like to enter it into three challenges:
Addicted to Stamps Challenge #1- "Make your Mark" ie use any kind of markers. This is a new challenge and there's still a day left to enter if you fancy!
Fashionable Stamping Challenge #24 - "Nature", and
PanPastel Challenge 24 - "Anything Goes"
Okay, must go and put on a washing and tidy up the breakfast dishes. (Well you have to get your priorities right, don't you ladies - crafting comes first!)
Thanks for stopping by.
