Hello! Today I have a tutorial to share using a Stampavie stamp and Promarkers. You can also view it on the Letraset blog and be sure to poke around while there for lots of ideas and info. on Letraset products.
Have you ever started to create a project, only to find that you don’t have the exact color of embellishments needed to match your papers? Today I will show you how you can use your Promarkers to create custom colored embellishments for all your paper crafting projects. Promarkers can be used on many items, including adhesive pearls, gemstones, ribbon, flowers, buttons, thread, twine, dew drops, brads, eyelets, chipboard, wood, acrylic, metal pieces, and much more!
First, select the Promarkers that best match the patterned papers you are working with. I chose Black, Apricot, Oatmeal, Bright Orange, and Ivory (not pictured).
To create custom ribbons, I used the chisel tip to color half of my piece Bright Orange and the other half Ivory.
Paper flowers are easily colored with the bullet tip. Try making dots for a fun, fresh look.
Simply apply the markers directly onto gemstones and pearls and you instantly have the color you need. No more running to the store when you are out of your favorite shade! Here I colored 2 gemstones with Bright Orange and 1 pearl with Black.
Buttons are fun to color and the possibilities are endless. Try making dots, stripes, plaids, etc. Let your imagination run!
I used a few of the embellishments above to create this card. The orange gemstones were placed onto the fence and the black pearl accented one of the altered flowers. The colored ribbons border the punched fence and patterned paper. And I colored some thread black to accent my plaid button. The main image, Batty, was colored with Promarkers as well.
I hope you are inspired to create some custom colored embellishments of your own!
