Those of you that know me well know just how much I love color. This love affair has gone back as far as when I was a little girl and had rainbow sheets and lavender walls! (Please don't judge ;))
I adore color in my clothes, accessories, scrapbook pages and more. I can't get enough of happy rainbows of color so you can imagine how absolutely over-the-moon excited I was to be contacted by BIC and asked if I was interested in reviewing their new 36-color-set of ultra fine point permanent markers. Um, YES!
But I truly wasn't prepared for the package when it arrived just a couple of days later. First, the array of colors was just incredible. There was everything from the palest salmon pinks to the deepest plums and everything in between. I couldn't get over the variety of colors that I had never seen in a permanent marker set. When I finally got myself to open them (I love pretty packages), I was really impressed with the the opacity and fluidity of the color as well. The light colors, while very light and soft, were also considerably opaque. While I wouldn't use the lightest shades to write on dark cardstock, they were still bold enough to be seen clearly on any lighter shade you might want to use. I also tested them on textured cardstock because that's what I use most often both in scrapbooking and cardmaking. The BIC pens were much more fluid than I could have imagined for a permanent marker and because the tips are fine there was no skipping! How great, right?!
But it just gets better. As in love with this new happy rainbow of color *I* am, one of you can be as well! BIC has generously agreed to give away a set of 36 markers just like the one I have to one of my lucky readers because they know just how fabulous you are, too!
So here's how you can get in on this: Leave me a comment on what makes YOU happy as well as what pen color you'd like to see and you can be entered to win! Entries will be accepted until 11:59 PM Eastern time WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 6th! So get in on this while you can!
Have a colorful day!
