Custom Colored Embellishments With Promarkers

Hello!  Wow…has it really been 2 weeks since I posted?  I haven’t stamped for a week or two so I hope to get back in the groove soon!  I had to shop for a new car a little unexpectedly…not what we wanted to do right now but we didn’t have much of a choice.  DH was out of town so that left it up to me.  sigh.  Hopefully this week will be back to normal!

Today I have a tutorial to share using a Stampavie stamp and Promarkers.  You can also view it on the Stampavie DT blog and the Letraset blog (be sure to poke around while there for lots of ideas and info. on Letraset products).

Have you ever started to create a project, only to find that you don’t have the exact color of embellishments needed to match your papers?  Today I will show you how you can use your Promarkers to create custom colored embellishments for all your paper crafting projects.  Promarkers can be used on many items, including adhesive pearls, gemstones, ribbon, flowers, buttons, thread, twine, dew drops, brads, eyelets, chipboard, wood, acrylic, metal pieces, and much more!

First, select the Promarkers that best match the patterned papers you are working with.  I chose Black, Apricot, Oatmeal, Bright Orange, and Ivory (not pictured).

To create custom ribbons, I used the chisel tip to color half of my piece Bright Orange and the other half Ivory.

Paper flowers are easily colored with the bullet tip.  Try making dots for a fun, fresh look.

Simply apply the markers directly onto gemstones and pearls and you instantly have the color you need.  No more running to the store when you are out of your favorite shade!  Here I colored 2 gemstones with Bright Orange and 1 pearl with Black.

Buttons are fun to color and the possibilities are endless.  Try making dots, stripes, plaids, etc.  Let your imagination run!

I used a few of the embellishments above to create this card.  The orange gemstones were placed onto the fence and the black pearl accented one of the altered flowers.  The colored ribbons border the punched fence and patterned paper.  And I colored some thread black to accent my plaid button.  The main image, Batty, was colored with Promarkers as well.

I hope you are inspired to create some custom colored embellishments of your own!

  1. OMGosh! This is so cool! I LOVE the buttons especially!

  2. NICE!!! I’m more impressed what you were able to do with the ink ie: changing the colors of the ribbon $ pearls and embellishing the buttons. This is a sure ‘$aver’ when it involves having a large assortment of embellishments available. Great Ideas. Love your card, too.

  3. This is adorable, Diane! I love that image! And I never thought to draw colored lines on buttons. You are SO creative!
