Want To Love ProMarkers? GIVEAWAY!

Well guess what! Here is your chance to see if you can love them just like me! I will be giving away a set of 12 ProMarkers donated by Letraset! I would like to thank Capadia from Capadia Designs for giving the introduction for the giveaway and I hope everyone check out her project she made and entered her giveaway.

Colors in this set include:
Henna, Ruby, Bright Orange
Canary, Sky Blue, Indigo Blue
Lime Green, Forest Green,
Amethyst, Rose Pink,
Cool Grey 4, Black
and Fine Liner

Instructions to enter are at the end of this post.


Here is a card I made using similar colors that are included in the set. The stamp set is from Inkadinkado and I got it several years ago when I was on a cupcake kick *okie thinks she probably still is*. The patterned paper is BoBunny. I used Mica Stardream to matte the image.

I couldn't believe there were 7 layers of paper when I counted when I got done. I think they all went well together though and show off the cupcakes well. The Stardream Mica does look better in person. That stuff is really hard to photograph sometimes.

I added a few heat set gems where the sprinkles were stamped on the image. They may look a little too blingy for cupcakes but ya'll know how I love my bling! I used the Imaginisce I-Rock heat set tool to adhere the gems. I get my gems on eBay from ohmymini. They are cheaper than buying in a store but be warned they literally come on a slow boat from China. But well worth the wait!

Since the set only has 12 markers and not enough colors to do the fancy shading I thought I would do a tutorial on how you can still get a nice shadow or layer effect with just using one color. I used colors that are included in this set. Remember to click the pictures if you want to see close up details.

Cupcake wrappers - Lime Green and Forest Green
Pink Cupcake - Rose Pink
Yellow Cupcake - Canary
Purple Cupcake - Amethyst
Shadow - Cool Grey 3
Accents on top of cupcakes - Mandarin, Sky Blue and Poppy

Step 1.
I colored the wrappers with lime green, leaving white in the middle. I then went around the edges with the Forest Green on each wrapper.










Step 2. I colored on top of the forest green with the lime green using a circular motion to blend the colors together. I then colored the rest of the wrapper in with the lime green.










For blending I like to use 2 similar colors for a nice layered look but as you can see you are able to get the effect with using just one color.

Step 3.
I colored each cupcake with a different color, Rose Pink, Canary and Amethyst.











Step 4.
I went back along the lines of the stamped image with the fine tip of the markers with a layer of each color accordingly.

The Canary didn't layer as well but that is okay since the pink and purple did.







Step 5.
I went finished the rest of the lines and waited a few seconds before going back over them again to get a deeper color.










Step 6.
For the shadow I drew a little area below the cupcakes with the Cool Grey 3 and then filled it in.










So ya see you can still get a good look with using one color and just layering so if you win this set you can do some great projects. If you do win these markers and decide you have to order more I order from Carpe Diem Store. They have the best prices I have found. But one thing, don't blame me if it causes a new addiction! *okie falls out of chair laughin*

So to enter what you will need to do is leave a comment on this post stating why you would like to win the markers and leave contact information so I can reach you if you are the winner. Yep, that's all you have to do. You guys know by now I don't like all the mumbo jumbo and jumping through hoops to enter so I make it easy to enter. Deadline will be Saturday January 8, 2011 at midnight. GOOD LUCK!

    No, really I would love to try them. I don't own any type of markers and pros or copics are over my budget! Thanks for this amazing giveaway. You are too kind!

It would be so nice to have a nice set of markers.

I'd love to win a set because Tuesday is my Birthday and my husband says I have my birthday present because he spent a lot on me at Christmastime and our water heater just went out, and I could go on, but I won't.

    Even if I don't win...I think I could afford to buy these! Thanks for sharing!

  118. I haven't done very much coloring because it just doesn't look good when I try. Maybe it is because I am using the wrong markers. I would like to try these to confirm it.

  124. I love to color! Just used crayons with my 4 year old yesterday. When we first got preggers years ago, my hubby and I had to have a coloring contest to see who earned the right to first teach the kids to color (he won). Now I would love to win these big-girl markers to color on all of my crafty projects!

  125. Super cute card! I love the papers and the coloring of the cupcakes. I also like the bling you added to each cupcake! I'd love to try out some of these markers (although I'm not sure I need another addiction). I love the way they blend! Thanks for sharing!

  126. I thought I had it all! We were empty nesters, I had moved my crafts into a empty room... OK that worked for about two months then DH came home telling me life as we knew it for the last 23 years was ending. They were closing his plant. They would pay us to move to Philly. Everyday for the next two weeks I gave away or sold my heart. Went from a 3 bedroom home to a 1 bedroom apartment for the next 11 months. Then he accepted a job in Dayton. But my office is empty.. These would be wonderful in the 3 boxes of craft supplies. I just got the cricut personal cutter and I'm dreaming.. Thanks Okie

  130. I would love to win these markers for many reasons. Firstly, my markers are at least 4+ years old, are not blendable, and not in the best of shape. Secondly, I've been put on a strict budget so my crafty purchases have been leashed. These just look wonderful and I love your projects and details! Hope I win! Many thanks!
