Monkeying around part 2!

Hi all,
here is monkey number 2! I am not so keen on monkey number 2, I was disappointed with my promarkers, one had dried out and I didn't realise until I started colouring monkeys mouth hence the random line! (Hopefully you can't see too much) does anyone have any tips for dried out promarkers? Or is it a case of say bye bye and throw in the bin?

I would like to enter this card in to Pixies crafty snippets challenge as all of the papers used snippets, slowly trying to get through my pile!

I would also like to enter this card into bugaboos bingo challenge!

Thanks for looking

Found this info on split Coast Stampers:

I have just learned from the Letraset website that Tria ink refill bottles can be used to refill Promarkers as they use the same ink.
I am excited about this because I already use the ink from my pens for some inking techniques so that my colours match but being able to get bottles will make it easier and more versatile.
Don't know if it is true but worth contacting them.

Aww this one's cute too. I don't know anything about Promarkers. Copics have refills, but I have still had trouble with nibs that got dried out. Even after refilling they were impossible to use so I just bought a whole new pen. Hugs!

Hi Laura

He is one cute little monkey .. .. I wonder if Jack is the same. I have a feeling he might be LOL!!!

I'm afraid I wear my ProMarkers into the ground and then begrudgingly throw them in the bin with a heavy heart :-( But they do work very, very hard so I can't complain!

Love Jules xx

Two super cards Laura! I had my most used Pro Marker run out on me the other day - like Jules I felt it was like parting with a friend :(

Hugs, Di xx

Hi Laura . . .what a shame your pen ran out on you, that is a NUISANCE. I cannot live without Sandstone or Blossom Pink, or Ivory . . .

Still a nice card though.

Cute card, that monke is so cute. Not sure about refilling pro markers, hopefully someone wil be able to advise. I went for copics as I knew I could refill them but they do still run out on yo when you least expect it, an early warning system would be better lol. Hugs, Amanda x
