LiM - Drinks

For the first time in ages I have made time to take part in the Less Is More card Challenge.  The topic for the next 2 weeks is:

"This challenge will last for two weeks over the festivities and we have decided to start our Christmas celebrations with a whizz and have chosen
as our recipe.
You can choose tea, coffee, water, sodas, alcohol of course if you wish, in fact any drink at all..."
I was not really sure what to do, but happened to find an image that I had printed from the Joanna Sheen CD 'If Flowers Could Talk'  This image features a cup of tea.
I matted the image on a piece of patterned paper and used a purple ProMarker to create the boarder.  I then decided that I want to use the 'Just a note to say...' sentiment, but I did not want to use Black ink, I wanted it to match the colour scheme (purple). 
So... I decided to try and use my ProMarker to colour the stamp.  Well I can say that it worked (but I don't think I would want to try it with a larger stamp), using the thick end of the pen I was able to colour the stamp in one swipe and it stamped OK.  The only down side is that my stamp now has a pink tinge to it. 
Does anyone know if ProMarkers can be used with stamps????


  1. Very classy card

    Happy New Year

  3. HI helen, I don't tend to use promarkers with stamps as they don't work well esp on large stamps.. the stampin up markers are great for colouring stamps and perfect if you want different coloured words..

    Thanks for joining us
    Sorry for the late visit...

  4. Lovely card, Helen - understated and stylish. I love the border, too. I don't have Pro-Markers so couldn't advise, I'm afraid. Mostly I just use my Distress Inks for stamping!

    Thanks for your visit, and your nice comment. Glad you like my spoke guards. I'm quite pleased with those flower ones but every time I look at them I think i could have done them better lol! The new set will be radically different... Off to get back on my knees again and do some more!


  5. Thanks for your lovely comment, and I'm glad you like the work-in-progress spoke guard. They are now finished and installed on the wheelchair and looking great! I had a few anxious moments, not knowing whether things would work as it's a first for me. Once I've finished editing the video I'll be posting about the project. Off to the craft show tomorrow - have art, will travel!

    Happy WOYWW,
