Something a Little Different.. UPDATED (added Flexmarker version)

Evening... So I have no card for you today but I have a little experiment I was trying yesterday when my friend Vicky from Vicky's Crafting Corner popped over to pick up some bits.  Vicky is really new to crafting (pop over and say hello) and was trying to decide which colouring medium to select...

So we were looking at the easiest and fairly cheap method for her.... firstly we looked at the Distress Markers from Tim Holtz... more pocket friendly that my huge promarker collection and fairly easy to use.  We both coloured in the same image.... the fabulous "James The Bear ...Wrapped In Tinsel" from Lili of the valley.... I love this bear!!  Here is mine.... Simply 3 distress markers....

After a little conversation re Distress markers and buying them I realised you may be able to do the same thing with Stampin Up write markers.... So tonight I coloured the same image with the markers... It was so easy I love the simple colouring... and since Vix has some of the markers already... a lot cheaper!

Here is take 2 with the markers ... Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede and Real Red...

I thought I would add the one I coloured with Flexmarkers and Prismas.... This was the one I was colouring in when Vicky arrived...

Hope you join me tomorrow for a new challenge at Passion For Promarkers.... It's my turn to host this week.  It's also the first ever sketch over at Seize the Sketch!!!

I'm hopefully going to turn these two cuties into some cards now.....
