Pro Markers

I spotted these Pro Markers on Jo's blog and had to have some!
They are fab and so quick and easy to use.
I purchased mine from Silly Monkey Crafts.
These are a few of my first attempts. I will add some
glitter before using them - I think!
Images: Pink Petticoat

Do any users out there have any advice for using these??
I would love to hear your comments! x

Sue I've been looking at these for a while but am still not sure. Do you think they are as good as other hubbies bank balance rests on your reply! LOL!

Blimey Emma - no pressure! ;-)
Well...I have played with them all afternoon and I am hooked. You need to be careful what paper you use - I found a very smooth white card works well - if you apply them direct - and this is so quick. Not played with them like watercolours yet!
They work brilliantly with Pink Petticoat images - still messin about with stamped images as they seem to 'bleed a bit'.
Does anyone else have any advice??

Great colouring job...I think they will work perfectly for what you're using them for! I love those images...too cute!

Cathy said...

Fab images!! Looking forward to seeing the final cards.

Louise, that's me!! said...

I have no idea about hints, but I think you are dinga FABULOUS job with them!

Jo said...

Great work Sue...they're very addictive aren't they!! I use Stazon or Versafine to stamp my images and leave them to dry thoroughly overnight and the Promarkers work great on them. Sometimes have a little smudge on Magnolias faces (freckles) but nothing drastic. The beauty of them is that they blend beautifully with no streaks!

Hi Sue, hope you are well. Oh wow these are gorgeous - just ordered the Manga set myself last night and can't wait for them to arrive. You've done a fabulous job, sorry I can't give you any tips but if you visit Nikki's blog (link is on my blog roll) she designs for SIlly Monkey and may be able to give you some tips.
Have a great day :)x

Emma said...

Sue and Jo...thanks for the help and tips...oh my hubby is so gonna curse you when I hit his credit card!! LOL!

Your coloring looks great! I haven't seen these markers yet anywhere else. Your updated blog (sidebars, etc) look fantastic, too!

love the images & colouring. are they like felt tips or pencils?
omg there are so many diff colouring things out there, i just cannot have anymore lol

Samantha said...

looks like you know how to really use those markers! Great job- very cute

Becky said...

Hi Sue! Your colouring is amazing!! Brill!! I go easy round the black stamped image so it doesn't bleed, I find the big end is great for a second coat if your first layer looks a little patchy!! I like to colour in full block colours cause I'm not artistic enough to do shading lol!
Love Becky xx
