testing action twinmarkers

So, have you ever set foot in an Action store? This may only apply to Germans. Or Europeans. Consider it a dollar store. Most likely full of goods made in China. Let's not talk about the likelihood of bad chemicals in the plastics... Or product knock-offs...

But, I stepped foot. (Actually called DH to tell him to eat leftovers without me cuz I was gonna be late for lunch due to losing myself in the craft aisle!!) And emerged with a bag of crafting goodness. Cheap. Including some Twinmarker alcohol markers at a dollar for a three pack! Now I was raised to always peruse the sale racks - remind me to tell you the popcorn story sometime. So I couldn't resist giving these markers a try. I know, I shouldn't have. But I did.

This stamp/die combo also fell into my bag BTW, so when I got home I had to give them a test drive.

 Craft Sensations stamp/die
Action Twinmarkers
Distress ink

Added a touch of DI before I arranged my bouquet. Used a little bit of foam tape to give some dimension. The sentiment is from an embossing folder/stamp set. Bought it just for that sentiment!

I'm happy with my new toys. Come back tomorrow for another test drive.

I'm playing at:
SSS Wednesday - Dies/Punches
Craft Stamper - July Take it Make it AG
Happy Little Stampers - AG with Dies
Always Fun Challenges - #68
