Whilst stuck in bed i have been doing a fair bit of colouring with my beloved Promarkers! I noticed a couple of weeks ago that i have been using a colour i hated, with a passion, for the majority of my life! GREEN and bright green at that! I've even started decorating my bedroom in Japanese Jade Green (which i could always stomach) but zesty lime green? no way jose!! However, this week i replaced some drying out Promarkers and bought some new ones, two zesty greens, i obviously had a couple of greens for leaves and foliage but this is called LIME GREEN and it is........
So, i have just taken a couple of pics to give you ideas of making your stash work for you! I used this lovely new bright green of mine on my favourite digital stamp designs, from Saturated Canary, this one is called...'Let it Rain'......so, i used that particular Promarker, and made my stash work for me, i coloured some light yellow flowers i had from literally 7years ago, with the bright green and, a 12mm 'normal green' pearl brad, making it the exact colour of my digi stamp because you are using the same coloured Promarker.
Because they are solvent based markers, they permanently colour things, don't forget that, they aren't just for colouring in pictures!!! make your stash work for you, hope i've given you some ideas today, Have a great weekend!!!
****TOP TIPS****think about other ideas.....ribbon, seam binding, lace, fabric, plastic/acrylic buttons, diamantees, peel offs, stickers, gems, pearls, brads, flowers, paper, foam, sequins, chipboard shapes and flourishes, diecuts & many more .......have a think, i bet you can find more things of yours, to colour, if you thought about it!!
****TOP TIP**** When colouring in ribbon, seam binding, fabric & lace, make sure you put some scrap copier paper behind the fabric whilst colouring it in and allow each layer to dry before you colour again IF you are doing more than one coat., so that you don't move layer one off before it dries........So, look out for this baby on a card very soon, Hugs&Blessings Vick xxx
