Metallic Highlights

Today I’m sharing another card you may have seen pop up in one of my recent Create & Craft shows…


The image (a  gorgeous digi stamp by Syvia Zet at WeeStamps) is coloured using Promarkers, I then used the Metallic Markers to highlight parts of the image, the mermaids hair and tail and the little sea snails shell, here are some close ups to show you the subtle gleam that these gorgeous pens create…

Here on her hair and tail, I highlighted with gold and red gold …

and here on the shell with silver, pink and purple…


Wait until your Promarker colouring is completely dry for the best results and just use light flicks to highlight small areas, they look absolutely gorgeous as they catch the light!

Thank you for dropping by today.

    I am new to alcohol markets but would like to get started with the Promarkers. Could you give a suggestion a to possibly an order that you would recommend me purchasing the sets. I pan to purchase sets not separate markers. Thank you
