Passion for Promarkers #47 – Make a background with Promarkers!

Well this week we have a big challenge for you, I know all the DT have been wracking their brains for ways to make a background with their promarkers, which is the fabby theme chosen by Ida this week at Passion for Promarkers. But it’s meant to be a challenge, and all of use rose to it. You need to check out all the other DT samples (links on my sidebar) to see al the different ways we’ve interpreted that theme.
I chose to colour a selection of ribbons and trims with promarkers for a real tactile effect.
This week our sponsor is Letraset– home of the Promarkers, and you could win a pack of 5 promarkers to add to your collection.

I’m really looking forward to seeing how all of you interpret the theme of making your own backgrounds – maybe you can come up with something we haven’t thought of.

Patterned paper from SU, various ribbons from stash and jute ribbon from Bunny Zoe coloured with Arctic Blue, Lime Green, Meadow Green and Cocoa promarkers, greeting from Craftwork Cards, buttons and twine from stash
