Marvy Permanent Markers; Amy Crockett


Welcome back! Amy Crockett is here today with her projects using new Marvy LePlume Permanent Markers. Keep in mind that these markers are BRAND NEW and alcohol-based, not water-based as Marvy's previous markers. They are comparable to Copics - they blend, absorb without pilling your cardstock, and are amazing markers for only $2.99 each.



Amy says; I have always loved stamping and I just started coloring with some of the more expensive alcohol markers a year ago. I then received the new Marvy LePlume permanant markers to try and I found that their colors were beautiful, vibrant and easy to work with. They blend just as well as the more expensive markers and the ink went on very evenly to make shading and blending easy. I only use the brush tip when I color with markers, so I didn’t miss the chisel tip at all. I would highly recommend these markers to anyone who would like to try coloring with markers, or even for those who would like to add to their marker collection without paying so much.







MARVY PRIZE GIVEAWAY
A set of 24 LePlume PERMANENT Markers (your color choices!) will be given away to a random comment provider each day of our feature. Additionally, a GRAND PRIZE of $400 worth of retail Marvy product will be awarded to one lucky winner at the end of the feature. To be eligible to win the Grand Prize, you must have commented during each day's feature. Good luck! Winners will be announced here at the Blog and at our Facebook FanPage on Friday, September 23rd.
