ProMarker Background


Good afternoon everyone. I hope you are all enjoying this lovely Thursday afternoon. So glad I have this afternoon off, been working this morning, only 3 visits this morning though so not to bad.

I came across a tutorial for backgrounds using tombow marker pens from the lovely Kara Benz at (BoHo Berry) I tried various colours until I finally settled for these colours.

ProMarker Background Flower card

What I did

  • An A4 piece of white card ( cut into 6 x 6)
  • 3 x different coloured ProMarkers
  • Using some flexible plastic (I used a polly pocket)
  • Make however many sqiggley lines across the plastic using all 3 colours or however many colours that you need.
  • Spray some water over the top of the pen marks, this makes the colours run into each other
  • then turning your polly pocket over and onto your card gently rub the plastic all over the card or on the bits of card you want to cover, I covered an A4 piece of card, then cut to the size I wanted
  • then pat dry with a piece of paper towel
  • allow your card to dry properly and then embellish as you want
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges
