Promarkers on Canvas

Firstly I'd just like to thank all of you who have left such nice comments over the last few days, where I've been showing you some different ways to use your promarkers. Some of you have asked what I'm going to do with the different things I've produced, so over the next few days I'll be showing you what I've done with each of the techniques I've shown you.
First up is this gorgeous wee boy on canvas
Click here for the post telling you about the technique.
 Image: Number 1 Fan from Sugar Nellie, I've stamped him with Memento ink onto Claudine Hellmuth's sticky backed canvas then coloured him with the following promarkers...
skin: Sunkissed Pink, Blush and Ivory. top and eyes: Bluebell and Prussian. trousers: Mandarin, Pumpkin and Gold, Hair: Cocoa, Cinnamon and Tan. Ground: WG1 and 3

papers are all Kaisercraft - Rewind from Merly Impressions, black core'dinations cardstock and a Craftwork Cards sentiment


Next up is the flowers that I airbrushed with the Letrajet and overstamped...
Click here for the post with the technique info
 I airbrushed the sticky backed canvas with the Letrajet system and Purple, Mulberry and Orchid promarkers, then sprinkled a little blending solution over it. I then stamped Hero Arts - Stencil Flower CG194 twice with Memento ink onto the now coloured canvas. I used the Purple promarker to accent the edges of the petals and the centre of the flower - remember you need to have a very light touch or the colour bleeds like nobody's business. Then I cut out one of the flowers, and just the middle petals of the second flower. I layered up the flowers by using 3d foam tape on the outside of the flowers and just double sided tape on the centres. 
For the rest of the card I stamped Hero Arts - Thank You Definition CG268 with Versamark onto plain white card and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Then used my blending tools to colour the card with Spun Sugar and Dusty Concord Distress Inks. I inked up the Hero Arts - Fabulous Flourish S5449 with Worn Lipstick and Dusty Concord Distress Inks and stamped over the background. I added some lace and then my canvas flower. To finish off the flower I covered the centre with Glossy Accents and then covered it with pink microbeads.


I'll be back tomorrow with some more examples of how I've used the techniques I've been showing you.

Hi Debbi, what a fantastic card. I love the image and your colouring is fab. Great idea to use fabric. Thanks for joining us at PFP this week. Hugs, Denise x

Paula said...

Love both of these ideas but the second is my favourite. The frayed edges of the first work extremely well & it's such an unusual card - terrific for a chap. And the second is just a wonder - love those inked techniques & that flourish is such a beauty. I can see I shall have to target Hero Arts as I have very few of their stamps. That flower is a joy with the layering & the lace is such a lovely embellishment - stunning.
