Mad for Markers Challenge # ONE

Good morning!! I hope that you all had a safe and Happy Easter! I would like to give a HUGE thanks to the DT and their wonderful work last week! I think they did an awesome job!! :D

I am very excited to be kicking off our first challenge here at Mad for Markers --- it is a COLOUR CHALLENGE!

*if you don't have the exact colours that's OK - subsititute something close by! :D We'd still love for you to enter! :D

To enter simply post your creation using the above colours on your blog/ online gallery (M4MC1) and then link back to your creation on this post.

Here is a card I have made for your inspiration using these colours...
Colours used: E000, E00, R00, R000, R20, R85, BG15, BG49
The blooms are roughly coloured with R00 and BG15!

Pop back during the next two weeks to see some WONDERFUL inspiration using these colours that the DT have been creating!

The PRIZE????

a pack of 10 sheets of X-Press It Blending card and a box of 36 Copic Ciao markers.

Susan Hogan said...

Well, I have entered this Challenge but have only just got my Copics and am still learning how to use them - so my images are not very well blended - love the ones on this blog though!

Barb F said...

well I am in the US but I am entering anyhow! This really was a challenge but I love the little gal I colored with it! I love color - can you tell?

MicheyMoo said...

Talk about a challenge......I started my second card for this challenge on Monday - passionate and excited and ready to go and then my MoJo just up and left and I've been living on borrowed mojo for the rest of the week. I've managed to get this card together, photographed and uploaded (albeit in an incomplete post) before the 5pm deadline!! Woot, Woot. Now to catch my breath, clean up the place and actually finish my post. :)
Good luck to all who've entered. I don't envy you Sammi and team - there are a whole bunch of talented peeps in here. xx
