Welcome to our new weekly challenge blog for those who have a passion for ProMarkers. Our first challenge will be on 26th May and will run every Tuesday thereafter. For each challenge we will give you specific colours to use, but feel free to use more if required, but the challenge colours must be used.

Before we begin, it seems a bit lonely here so we are looking for 4 other ProMarker lovers to join us on the Design Team.

If you would like to be considered there are a few rules:

  • You must of course own a lot of ProMarkers!!

  • You must be able to make a card a week with the challenge colours.

  • You must have an active blog and post at least weekly.

If you are interested in joining our DT please drop us an email (to Gina or Denise) with a brief reason why you would like to be considered along with some information about yourself and a few examples of your work. Applications need to be submitted by 18th May and our new DT will be announced on 20th May. Good luck - we look forward to hearing from you.

Can't wait to start on these challenges. I absolutely love using my Promarkers and use then on virtually every card. Was wondering what happens if a colour appears in the challenges that I don't have - I have a few missing ones (have about 60 colours which do me fine). Would we be allowed to substitute colours for a similar shade?
Looking forward to seeing your work

Great idea, can't wait for the challenges to start. I own about half of the promarker colours and I am adding gradually to them. I will be interested to see some blending as this is something I have not tried yet.
Just seen the colour list, I will have to get myself an Apple colour abit quick but I am alright for the second challenge lol.
Good luck.

Good luck with your challenge blog. I have just ordered 3 sets of Promarkers to see what all the fuss is about and am eagerly waiting for them to drop through the door, hopefully I have some of the colours so I can enter your challenges.
Would love you to add some tips etc on your blog so I can learn how to get the best out of them.
I have put a post on my blog with the photo and a link to your blog which can be found hereHugs Julie x

I have just e-mailed you Gina, I hope it reaches you in one piece as I have been having some issues with e-mail connections.

I'm looking forward to watching the blog as well.

Terhi said...

Cant wait to see your first challenge. I use my promarkers quite a lot and love them....but still learning to do shadows etc...and its good to see, which color you need in challenge, so you can get missing ones, if needed..

Sam said...

Looking forward to the first challenge. Just received some more PMs today, well a girl has to treat herself now and then!! Got about 35 now, so still a way to go, really enjoy using them, have just started trying to blend and shade, not always successfully but I guess practice makes perfect!! Would love to become a member of your DT, so will drop you an email soon.

Wow, about time that promarkers got some attention for a change instead of copics, I have them all apart from gold and silver, I love them and use them all the time.

I would love to be considered for your DT but I can't access your e-mail as my computer asks for a registration key for the e-mail thingy????

My blog is, you are welcome to come & have a look at my pro-marker creations.

Wellllll...(a hole in the ground) I own one permanent (magenta)promaker and a set of aqua, which I bought for my dad's birthday a last year...he gave them back to me this year (minus the water brush!) I think he'd forgotten I was the one who'd given them to him! Yippee for me!

((Lyn)) Good luck for your hunt for your DT!
