Dipping my toe into the ProMarker waters
Up until now the only time I've seen these pens used has been with cutesy stamped images and thats just not my kind of thing so my challenge was to use them in a way that fit with me. I rummaged through my stamps and found this Rose Canina stamp by Funstamps which I stamped with sepia Archival Ink. I had a few trial runs with blending the pens and then just went for it. This is the result of my first attempt and I'm quite happy ! It was very easy to create this blended effect of light and shade as the pens do all the work for you. I could definitely see myself using something like this on a scrapbook layout after a bit of fussy cutting - how cool would that be!!
Just in case you are thinking about dabbling with ProMarkers too here's a little tip - HobbyCraft have sets of pens on sale right now for only £3.99!! What a great deal!!
