Making your images Pop with Letraset

I've always been a firm believer that you do not need to stick to one medium for your art work, mixing and matching can make your images pop off the page and add new dimension's to what would be a flat looking image.

At the moment Metallic Marks have 20% off so there couldn't be a better time to stock up on some of them.

here is how I used both ProMarker and Metallic Markers on the image. you can click on the image to enlarge it.

I think you'll agree the end result is gorgeous.

I'm giving away a set of the metallic Markers All you need to do is leave me a comment to enter and spread the word so tell all your friends.

Oh yes, if you also leave a comment on the  Letraset Blog you will have two chances of winning.

Hi Jak me again a quick question for you about a year ago I brought some of the fine nibs for pro markers and for some reason some of them are not working now do you have any idea why and what I can do to get them working again I have brought some more but would love to know what has happened they are pushed on fully but nothing comes out

This is my second comment, my first one vanished!!

You have coloured the image perfectly. At first I thought it was a printed image that you had jazzed up.
Promarkers are my colouring medium, & I would love to win a set of these.
