As You Like It Challenge #83 Markers, Inks or Pencils and WHY

Hi Crafters,

At As You Like It  our challenge is to showcase a project using your favourite Markers, Inks or Pencils and tell us WHY.

My favourite colouring medium are Promarker pens. They are the first alcohol pens I tried when I started crafting, they just suited me and how I like to colour my images so I have kept with them. I like to try different colour combos and shading.
For my Design Team card today I am using this wonderful image Gardening Alf from DigiStamp Boutique.

Image - Gardening Alf
Medium - Pro/flexmarkers
Distress inks around the edges
MFT Stitched Square Die
Spellbinders 'Happy Birthday' Phrase Die
Spellbinders Embossing Folder

DigiStamp Boutique - ATG + DSB Image
Come & Get It  - #124 Paper Piercing
Crafting When We Can - #122 Any Occasion
Cardz 4 Guyz - #126 Clean & Simple

I know many of you have different colouring and inking mediums as your favourites so the DT look forward to seeing what you create.

Hi Lorraine, your card is brilliant and I love Alf, beautifully coloured too, I too started with Promarkers, but being somewhat fickle I've branched out to others, Kate x

A fabulous card Lorraine, brilliant colouring and great design.

Kat W said...

I'm an alcohol marker fan, as you know, because they blend so beautifully and I love the gorgeous bright colouring on your card here. This is definitely one where the coloured image needs to take centre stage so the simple embossed layering is perfect to do this and I really love that sentiment for the wish list!
Big hugs, Kat xx

Brenda said...

A local store has recently brought in Promarkers, they do blend beautifully. I was tempted, but have to much invested in my Copics. Your card is so beautifully done, the coloring is amazing and the design is so suited to this fun image.

Karen said...

Lorraine, this is lovely. Your coloring continually amazes and inspires me. The textured background is also beautiful and I love the script of the phrase die. Wonderfully done as always, my friend. Have a sparkly day. :o)

Hugs and blessings,
