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 www.jakheath.com to be in for a chance to win the set and I will pick a winner on Saturday 29th May

I am so grateful for your tutorials on how to use the Promarkers. I don't have any promarkers, though I would love to have some. Your tutorials do work for other markers I have. I would love to add your link to my blog, but I don't have one. I do mention your site to all my scrapbooking friends. Now they love it as much as I do. I check it almost every day.

Your promarker tutorials are so easy to understand and even I can now achieve professional results. My daughter who is taking GCSE Art next year has even used your promarker colouring principles with different art mediums and has got amazing results and comments from her art teacher.

Your website is a constant inspiration, keep up the good work and please please please enter me into the promarker competition. Fingers, toes etc all crossed.

I don't have a blender pen and now I must have one , fabulous tutorials Jak, I have been collecting pro marker sets so have doubled up on some colours and I gave the extra's to my 15 year old great niece, she is amazed and so taken by them that she is now buying digi's herself and has started making cards. I have shown her where your tutorials are. Thanks for the chance Jak, Hugs Elaine
