Marvy LePlume Markers c/o SRM

Hi there! I am so happy to share a couple of projects using new Marvy LePlume Permanent Markers on the SRM blog today. 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. Marvy was kind enough to send me a sampling of colours a month ago and I am so happy to share my results! The three samples I’m sharing today were coloured 100% by LePlume markers (with the help of my hands, of course, hahaha…)

They blend JUST LIKE Copic markers (they have a brush tip like the Sketch and Ciao markers) and they’re half the price… You can’t beat that! To do the background of this image I held the tip of the marker in front of my Copic airbrush gun and out came these cool splatters.

They have a nice selection of light colours so fading to white is a snap (with the help of the blender pen) and the dark colours are nice and vivid. (Stamps are from Whimsie Doodles - from one of her special unmounted rubber sets!)

My new love: Opaque White. It’s not alcohol based, but kind of like those old metallic markers that you shake (without the blobbing, and stink) AND it has a fine tip. The accents on the butterfly were done with the white pen and it worked so well to get into the little tiny spaces.
