playing with promarkers.

Good evening all.i`ve been experimenting with my promarkers today after sue at crafty urchins gave me the idea that she had used blending solution with her promarkers and then having a look on youtube.
mmmmmmmm i think me will try that :D
so i have created the flower, the backing paper and my sassy`s paper pieced clothes.
i scribbled promarkers on to some acetate then i popped a bit of the blending solution in a spritzer bottle and spritzed it all over, the also spritzed with pearl mica spray.tipped the acetate a bit to get some little runs and pressed my paper into it and my tissue paper.
i am entering my card into the following challenges:
1.the sugar bowl challenge = challenge 57 = maria therese`s sketch (2nd entry)
2.papertake weekly challenge = truly dimensional.
products used are:
white card.
adirondack blending solution.
mica spray - white pearl.
tissue paper.
marianne swirl and circle.
paper studio sentiment,
simpply sassy - hippie chick.
promarkers used are:
blush,sunkissed pink,coral,rose.

for the spritzing i used the following promarkers:
lime zest,lime green,forest green.
and a close up of the tissue paper flower.

thanks so much for visiting me and for all your lovely comments on my hanglar card earlier.
have a fab evening :D
luv coops xxxx

This looks quite amazing! :) I have never experimented like that, but today I did your tip of colouring my mat card with pro-markers (card will be on blog in the week, and I will mention it) :)

this is a great take on the TSB sketch too, the paper panels really make the image pop. Your coloring of this little cutie is outstanding too ;)
