Aqua Markers

Letraset are listening to us crafters and have brought out a new 20 colours in the Aqua range, these markers are not to be confused with the promarkers as they are water based so they work in the same way that watercolours do but the great thing abut them is they are wet and ready to use.
Letraset have kindly sent me the information sheet that gives lots of hints and tips on how to use them.
They have also kindly sent me some sets to set as prizes for my readers so I must get busy and make a sample or two to show you for when the new 20 colours are available in August.

Just click on each picture to enlarge it.

Lighter Shades with a Blender Pen

I wanted to show you a way of getting really pale shades with the Promarker as i know we often feel we need an even lighter shade in the range of colours, so for this tutorial i will be using the Pale Pink and the Blender Pen Promarkers and a Digi Stamp by Mo Manning called My Friend.

Take the Blender pen and lay down a layer of blender all over the cardigan, I've marked the area in an orange outline so you can see where i am using it, this blender solution will hepl to keep the paper wet (damp) enabling a light colour blend.

Next using the Pale Pink Promarker colour where the darkest shade would be ( creases of the cardigan, under the arm and at the edges)

Take the Blender pen and stroke the nib over the chisel end of the Pale Pink Promarker to pick up a little of the colour.

Work with the blender pen in small circular strokes over where the pale pink Promarker meets the white on the cardigan towards the centre. The pink ink on the blender pen will flush away so you will need to keep picking up the pink shade onto the blender pen as you work.

You can see that the Pale Pink and the Blender Promarker pens have worked nicely together and without the mottled effect that can happen.
The wonderful folk at Letraset have given me a Promarker Rubber stamping Set 1 to give away to a lucky person.

Leave me a comment on my home page under the Promarker Knowhow Tutorial post and add a link on your blog to to be in for a chance to win the set and I will pick a winner on Saturday 29th May
