They Arrived!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My Promarkers (BIG smile)

I am still so exciting about winning a complete set of 148 Promarkers from Enfys at Going Buggy last week I can hardly believe it. Thank you thank you! :)  Well when they arrived yesterday it was amazing, now I am really overwhelmed look at this box of markers!.................
OMG, that is a lot of markers, now I have to put them all away in these handy little holders that Letraset Promarkers sent me along with my markers.
What a job, there are so so many colors and trying to get them organized into the correct color families was a feat.  Some look green but should be in the yellows, Oh my, I guess I will print up Promarker Color Chart and follow that.  If you want to see the colors click the link above.  Here are all the markers in the holders, now there are 13 holders and I have to figure out where to store them.

I kind of like the holders, they each hold 12 markers so when you are working on reds you can just grab your red holder.  Now let's face it, it may be kind of hard to have ALL 148 markers on your desk at one time YIKES!  They even sent me 8 extra markers, they were duplicates of some of the colors, I will have to contact them and see if that was an error and if I need to send them back.  Talk about sending, wow what fast service from the UK.  I won on Monday 11/15, they shipped them on Tuesday 11/16 and I received them Friday 11/19 that is impressive!  So if you want to order some you will know what kind of service you will get from Letraset.  You can also order them from Carpe Diem  that has them for $1.49 each.
Now keep this in mind that I need a lot of practice with coloring using alcohol markers but here is my first coloring job, it is not finished and I will put it on a card but wanted to show you the vibrant colors these markers have.  I love these markers they go on smooth and quick, now they are not refillable like Copics but with the price of $1.49 it is far cheaper to just buy another marker then to buy a bottle of refill.  Also when you get a new marker that means a fresh nib/tip every time.  Makes a lot of sense to me.  Without further ado...
Enfys at Going Buggy has some videos on coloring with the Promarkers, it appears may be I should watch them again and again.  LOL
If you are in the market for Copics, check out these markers, they are fabulous and a lot more inexpensive, you can get 3 of these markers for the price of 1 Copic, that means more colors in your collection :).
Would love to hear your comments and/or tips on coloring with these.
Thanks for stopping by.

That poppy looks fabulous to me Donna, you shaded the leaves perfectly, it looks great. Have fun with your new toys. If you search around on the web, different folk have posted great storage ideas (don't forget you can store them vertically or horizontally. I know someone posted about using a CD tower from Ikea, it looked fantastic the way she did it. Have a look on the passion for PM blog (link on my blog), I think they have some storage ideas as well.
Once again, glad you are happy,
hugs

Donna, Congratulations on winning the Promarkers. I love mine. My daughter, Donna, & I also entered the contest. Her son, Jacob, prayed his Mommy would win. When we found out you won Donna said, "Mom, I guess we just need to be more specific which Donna." We are so happy someone we "Know" won them. Enjoy them. Enfys videos are very helpful.
