Today will be all about bragging :D
I'm here to share the news with you that I'm officially the newest member of the 

I actually got an email asking me if I would like to join them.
I got headhunted, lol! 
I'm so excited!

Promarkers have been my favorite coloring medium through the years. I'm always curious about new ways to color and have tried most of them, but I keep going back to my beloved promarkers every time.

Captain Colin digital delights promarker coloring
Promarker colors used for this card.

 I like that there are 148 colors. It's quite a few, but not so overwhelming that you don't know where to start.  I have around 120 of them.
You don't need that many to get a good range of colors. What I would recommend is to start with two colors in the same shade - one darker and one lighter. For example: you can have ice grey 1 and 3. This will let you build up the colors and blend them together.
So instead of buying one pen in each color family (eg. a yellow, a pink, a red etc) I would go for two reds (one darker one lighter that work together), two greys and so on depending on your budget.
This will let you be able to work up shades.
