A secret mission!

Hi there, us girlies on the PanPastel DT are soooooo lucky :-) A few weeks ago we were tasked with a secret mission, to play with a box of the most scrumptious crafty goodies  from our lovely sponsor Berni at Your Creativity Store. All we had to do was  see what we could create BUT (there's always a but isn't there lol) we had to keep it under our hats! Now you know what a chatterbox I am so this was no easy task, especially when I found that some of the new goodies were fabulous new marker pens  that nobody but us had got their mits on !!! oooooh how exciting, I've been bursting to tell lol

Graph'IT Markers aren't just ordinary markers, they are alcohol based markers that come in a nifty storage box in a really wide range of colours, nothing new there I hear you say well these markers have a very clever extra ..... the Mix'It Blending Palette. I was a bit baffled when I first got my paws on this as it looks like a little craft mat but you use it to blend your markers on and then apply them to your image with the blender pen. These pens are really juicy and blend wonderfully, the selection I received was a gorgeous mix of  colours but I was a bit flummoxed as there was nothing like a skin colour but ........ ta da!!!! With a bit of pink and orange and lots of blender Tilda has a lovely skin colour. It took a little bit of getting used to applying the colour with the blender pen but its soooooo much quicker than the usual way of colouring with alcohol markers. I found myself using the chisel tip for most of the colouring. I've always been a real promarkers fan but I think Graph'It pens are going to be my new favourites. They have a bullet tip and a chisel tip but the bullet tip is finer than with promarkers so better for detailed work,

The bps I've used for this card are from Tim's shabby papers, with some lace,flowers, pearls and seam binding from my stash.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Catered Crop: anything pink
Dream Valley : Something old, something new
Pile it on: Patterned papers
Poodles Parlour: here come the girls

Right I'd better get my skates on and go to work, don't you just love Monday mornings?? lol
Thanks for popping by
