Have you met the new Letraset Flexmarkers yet?

Well well well what do we have here?  A brand new product from Letraset called Flexmarkers!  They differ from the promarkers in that they have a brush nib so can give really and I mean really fine detail and great ease of use.  They also contain the familiar chisel nib!

Paul from Letraset kindly gave the Passion for Promarkers team a sample pack each to try and boy were we blown away!  I think the whole team not just wants but NEEDS them ALL!

In my sample pack I received these new colours;

Antique White
Light Fawn
Pale Blossom
Celestial Blue
Cadet Blue

(NB: This is not one of the packs, this is a sample pack using half of set 1 and 3)

If you didn't manage to get hold of the sets from the recent C&C show then these will be available in sets of 6 and 12 from September and come in 72 colours with 12 brand new exclusive colours and 51 colours not available in promarkers.  I really REALLY want these!!  If you do too then Letraset are also offering a giveaway of the full set woo hoo!  Log into their facebook page and follow the instructions to take part.  If you really can't wait then they will be available very soon!

So what have I created?  Well I have just messed around just to try them out so ths is my first complete piece.  I'm loving the antique white to blend as its less harsh than the blender pen so gives a really good tone.  I used the celestial blue and cadet blue on the blouse with some french navy (promarker) and blended with the antique white.  The jeans I used the celestal blue and antique white again and the watermelon on the tiny flowers.  I've used the fawn as part of the hair to blend and add highlights, it also makes a nice skin tone too.  Image is by Make it Crafty called Zoe celebrates - quite apt as she looks how I felt when trying out the new lush pens lol!
Can't wait to start collecting these, they really are A+++++

Popping back!

Helloooooo!  Been taking a break with the kids over summer, are yours driving you nuts yet lol!  Mine aren't too bad, the first week was terrible as it was a change of routine Ethan didnt like but he's settled down now.  I still get the "Am I going to mrs parry's class today" every single morning though!  Have booked some holidays so will be going bank holiday week yay! 
Also taken up face painting this week which keeps them amused for a while but I think they're getting a bit fed up of me wanting to practice haha!  Normal service shall resume in September when I get a minute to myself hooray!

Heres a little one I made which also fits the theme for Crafts & Me this week which is Blues or Blues and Greens.  Still playing around with the simple designs so this one is only one DP with a panel from a martha stewart around the page punch.  Image is coloured with promarkers and the letrajet (*Letrajet is the airbrush to use with promarkers & aqua markers) with loads of gems around the edge.  Also on the tail I used 3d gloss and a sprinkle of glamour dust.  Image is Columbine which is a digi. 

Whilst I'm here just to let you know that Crafts & Me now have a new group on Facebook where you can pop in and chat with members of the DT and other friends, upload your work, ask us if you get stuck on anything.  You'll find us HERE!
