Marvy Permanent Markers; Kathy Racoosin


Are you ready for more inspiration using Marvy's new LePlume Permanent Markers? Kathy Racoosin, on of our 2010 Design Team members, is here with a project you will adore! You can also view Kathy's Blog for a complete tutorial.

Kathy says, "Excited" and "thrilled" was an understatement when I got the news that I was able to give the new Marvy alcohol markers a try. It didn't take long to fall in love with the colors, the selection, and the tip on these LePlume Markers. They blend so nicely and work great from tip to tip. I traveled with my new markers to Montana & to a stamp class. Everyone who colored with them was just as delighted as I was. I think everyone should start with the LePlume Markers.

Kathy used label die cuts, SRM Stickers, rubber stamps, and Marvy Permanent Markers to create a set of coordinating labels;



Kathy used her handmade labels to create storage containers for her new Marvy Markers by covering soup cans!



Lastly, here's a greeting card using the same concept;



MARVY PRIZE GIVEAWAY

Hi guys, I was so attracted to Kathy's project, just like a moth to light. I am in love with all the great colours. Fab idea to use soup cans or any cans. How often do we throw things away without seeing the potential in the 'rubbish'. Blessings Hilde, now a follower of both your and Kathy's blog.

Wow oh WOW, Kathy has done it again! These cans are FABULOUS. I agree with her view about the Marvys - if you are a beginner, invest in them and see if you like them. You can always move on to the 'big boys' of markers if you find you are in love! :)

I am excited to try these markers. The price hike has put a major damper on my Copic collection and I'd love to get some of these in lesser-used colors to widen my coloring scope. So excited!

Great job Kathy!
Very eye catching!

Katie said...
