Shimmering Card with Letraset Markers

I love to try out my markers on different card stock and paper and today I wanted to show you the results on a shimmer card stock, you would think you would loose the effect of a luxurious shimmer but in fact in enhances it.
I used the Christmas 5 Promarker + 1 Metallic packs of pens in Contemporary and Traditional and you will see for yourself the result.
Cool wintery colours and a silver metallic pen to add some pop.
Silk ribbon from Ribbon Carousel
and a close up to show the card still shimmers through the colour.

Next up is the Traditional Pack
Warming colours with a Metallic Gold.
Ribbon from Ribbon Carousel

Again a close up of the shimmer shining through the colour

All in All I think you'll agree it is gorgeous.
I have a set of each of these to give away, winners will be chosen from comments left, pop over to the Letraset Blog and leave a comment and you’ll have two chances of winning.

They look gorgeous, I have often wondered how promakers would turn out on shimmery card. I have some in my stash, I might try and print out some digi stamped images and see how they turn out too.

How amazing and talented you are Jak. Your work has inspired me and I aim to try the metalic Promarkers.
I also am a grandparent and like to send my grandchildren letters and drawings regularly, using the regular Promarkers, so the metalic markers will brighten up their post even more.
Many thanks and best wishes for Christmas to you and your family.
