Thank You - Aquamarkers

I have done it.....had a play with my new Aquamarkers.  They are great fun and I love the colours and how vibrant they are.  After starting this I thought that a rose is not the best image for me to try something new.  I always have a problem figuring out the shading on roses.  This image was given to me  a while is gold embossed onto Blender Paper.  I found the Aquamarkers worked very well on this paper.  I do have a lot of practising to do as I am so used to using my pencils.  I did like the fact that I could let the image dry and then come back later in the day and think that needs a little more colour or blending there and out came the blending pen and everything was wet and moving around again.

Here are the wonderful Aquamarkers that I received from Letraset....the three colours on the box are what I have used to colour the above rose.

This bag is the reason for the above Thank you card.  I volunteer at the local museum and the lady that I share the time with is 79 and a wonderful seamstress, cook, artist, person.  One day she arrived and had a cute little handbag with her.  It was a denim material with gold flourishes on it.  The strap was made from braided gold coloured thin cord.  I was asking her all about it and she had told me she had made it herself.  I told her how lovely it was.

This lady had been working on a denim skirt for herself at that stage.  Three days after our shift together I get a phone call asking if she could drop off a bag for me.  Yes, she had gone home a put all her scraps together and made this bag for me. :-) How lucky am I.

Speaking of lucky....not only Aquamarkers and bags but I am the lucky winner of Ruth's 5 Digital Images.  Yes, I have the challenge now of choosing 5 of her images over at Passion for Stamps.  

Hope your Wednesday is as good as mine.
Sunshine here as well....what more could I ask for.

    I just bought some Copic markers and love them. I was wondering if they are similar to yours. The Copics are alcohol and permanent. I love them as I can use them on my silk ribbons. They can be blended too.
