Passion for Promarkers #13 - Prussian & Pumpkin + Hallow'een

Hmmmmmm - not feeling the love for these colours I'm afraid but I like to step out of my comfort zone once in a while so I took up the challenge from this week's Passion for Promarkers to use Pumpkin and Prussian as your main colours and a Hallow'een theme to boot!!

Tilda with Pumpkin has been coloured with Promarkers and Ranger Inksentials white pen. The paper is from Crafty Individuals "Travels in Italy" book and I covered up the gondalas and left the street light. I've used a sentiment from a Serendipity Cling set, some Karen Foster brads and flowers from Wild Orchid to finish it off.

So excited about the new Promarker colours coming in a couple of weeks - it will give those of us who actually PREFER Promarkers to any other alcohol pen to now achieve the variations in colour and shading that other manufacturers offer. YEY!!

Have, have, have to share with you my new ink pad shelves that I just put up yesterday. I cannot believe that I now finally have all my ink pads in one blessed place and can now see and use them really easily. This is like the holy grail of crafting storage products!! You can see the fabbiness for yourself here - they are perfect, very reasonably priced, easy to fit AND they've got a sale on!! I know what I want for Christmas - some of their paper storage units!!

Frances said...

cute card Lynn . . always good to try something different from norm! I'm glad you Promarker fans are getting more colours as that was main reason I converted to Copics! Loving the ink storage . . saw some in mag & very tempted but not sure I have wall space for it anywhere . . hmm will have to have a little think! x

p.s is the vest still out today ;p?

Am I to take that as a hint for Christmas then am I ?? As long as it doesn't mean you need to buy more paper to fill it because I think you might have enough already ....... lol

Home soon

Hi Lynn

How organised are you with your inks, impressed. And agree, so exciting about the new promarkers, we so need more pinks and lilacs.

Pretty card as well.

Errrrrrr, what's going on here then? Are you telling me the floor/table/wherever it happened to land doesn't count as storage? Hmmmmmmm...

Fabby card - after my "Tilda Trashing" of the other day I've dug out some oldies - I was playing with this one today!

Fab card Lynn, I love the colour combo and the MS punch is perfect for a Halloween Card.
Your inkpad storage shelf is great, I have thought of getting one of these before but I quite fancy getting a paper one first now I have seen them. Have a good day
