Passion for Promarkers – Michele’s Sketch

This week’s Passion for Promarkers challenge is to follow Michele’s lovely sketch with an added element, which is to make your own flowers.  Our sponsors for this challenge are Letraset, who are giving our winner a set of five Promarkers.

I used plain off-white flowers, which I painted with pearlised watercolour paints. This has the effect of stiffening the flower and giving it the look of pearly porcelain. I added a pearly brad and a silver spacer to the flower centre for further decoration. The designer papers are by Basic Grey, and the stamp is by Sugar Nellie. Please scroll down to see my Promarker colouring recipe.

Promarkers used:

Skin: Ivory, Blush, Pastel Pink.Hair: Vanilla, Tan, Caramel.

Clothes: Lime Zest, Pear Green, Pale Pink, Dusky Rose, Cardinal Red, Caramel, Cinnamon.

Butterfly and Mushrooms: Tan, Caramel, Cinnamon, Cardinal Red, Almond, Tan.
