This week we have got the design team to show us what else they use PM’s for, but first Debbi has done a great colour chart, it will help you see which PM’s you are still in need of and once coloured in, you will be able to see which colour matches, so if you would like a copy, Debbi has put it onto PDF file for you, just email me (I will automatically email it to those who have weekly PDF tuts emailed to them)
You need to print it onto the paper/card you would normally use with your pm's to get a true representation.
Now onto what else you can do with ProMarkers :)
I have started with seven basic white ribbons 1. organza 2. gross grain 3. satin 4. cheap acrylic lace 5. paper printed 6. ric-rac 7. raffia Place your ribbon onto a piece of plain white paper securing it each end with some type of repositional glue, so that it doesn't move about to much while you are colouring When colouring your ribbons you need to use smooth even strokes all going the same way, try not to go over the same area twice unless you want the colour to be darker. You will see from the results below I have coloured the blue one slightly darker at each end so you can see the effect. I have chosen three colours, blossom,coca and pearl blue so you can see how well the pens take to all the different types of ribbons. The only ribbon which is slightly wasteful on the pen ink is the organza as you will be left with quite a bit of ink on the paper all the other ribbons absorb most if not all of the ink and you get lovely matching ribbons. Thanks Sue :o)
Here is another great use for our favourite pens. I have used some clear papermania adhesive stones and simply coloured them with my promarkers.
I have chosen three different colours to show the effect. Yellow, Poppy and Amethyst.
They dry very quickly and as you can see the colour looks great, they will now match your cards perfectly.
coming up NEXT WEEK – we have a fabulous flower Tutorial from Michele
