Happy Friday! Nope, that is not a typo in today’s blog post header, Letraset is offering 65% off the Tria Marker sets of 12 Friday June 17th only! The ink in Tria Markers is the same as in Promarkers but Tria markers are refillable and you can replace the nibs but the most wonderful feature of these markers is that it has 3 nibs! You get a brush end on one end (it has a nice “spring” to it, I like it better than Copic) and the other end has a chisel tip and a fine tip snaps over the chisel tip to give you 3 nibs in one. I love them. I have the Fashion set and it is fabulous. As my Promarkers are used up (not that any of them are remotely dried out and I use them all the time!) I will be replacing them with the Tria of the same color. To get the sale price on the Letraset website use the code: SHH-0611. Letraset ships worldwide too! Now on to the cards colored with Letraset markers:
The Flower Fairy stamps are from Crafter’s Companion, love these! I hope to own all of their individual fairy stamps someday, sigh…
Here are the close-ups of the cards. I stamped the fairies on Neenah Classic crest #80 with Memento black and colored them with my Promarkers by Letraset. I started with the darkest colors on the edges and blended them inwards with a lighter shade. The only difference between Promarkers and Letra set is that you can refill/replace the nibs and ink on Trias and there are 300+ colors in Tria and only about 144 in the promarker range. I have some of both and they work beautifully together!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend! Don’t forget the Tria Marker sale at Letraset is today (June 17, 2011) only and you have to use the code: SHH-0611 when you checkout to get the 65% off!
Til next time Happy Crafting!
