GraphITs and their NEW Brush Nibs

I am well and truely addicted to the new graphIT pens and their replaceable brushtip nibs are ACE. I now have the FULL collection of pens that are out at the moment and about 25% of them have brush nibs instead of the broad nibs.

This shows my graphIT collection in pride of place on my crafty desk - have stacked to one side my promarkers/flexmarkers/Ciao collections, so that I can have more room to work.

Pan Pastel - Anything Goes

Well I decided to play with my brand new metallic pan pastels and I took some of the bronze and copper colour pastel and mixed it into glossy gel medium to make my own paint. After gesso-ing my frame I stamped and heat embossed some texture/sentiment/tree from one of the "Sam Poole designed Stamp sheets". I then took the homemade paint and slapped it all over the frame, I then dried it briefly with heat gun and the results are below. This was my FIRST play with my new metallic pan pastels and have deicded I will enter my make into the "ANYTHING GOES Challenge" over on the pan pastel blog.

Tiddly Inks Challenge Card - Back To School

Over at the Tiddly Inks challenge blog the current challenge is: Back To School and after a rough tme with my own health and my mum also being rushed into hospital ill (Now home), I decided I needed a distraction so set about making a card for the challenge using the loverly diggie: Stand Out In The Crowd which I though was perfect.

Now normally I would have said I used my promarkers but I am also playing with some GORGEOUS new pens called "GraphIT Markers" INFO HERE which are also an alcohol marker but are really nice pens and I am loving them and their differences to other pens.

Hope you like my entry for the challenge.

Tiddly Inks Card - Entry into the DT Call

Over on the Tiddly Inks Blog they are having a DT call for new design team members which is open throughout July 2013.

To enter you have to produce a card using your favourite diggie/stamp - I had a mega hard time chosing but decided to use Be My Sunshine which has to be a cutest image ever for me.

I colour my images with a mixture of promarkers and flexmarkers as I am a Letraset addict just as much as I am a Tiddly Inks fan. Hope you like the card folks, and best of luck to everyone entering and remember you CAN do more than one card it you want too but it isnt't a requirement.

Be My Sunshine digital stamp
used from Tiddly Inks.
