Colouring a sepia image with Promarkers

Sepia images can make a stamp look very different, they are nice to do occasionally, and the technique is great for those ATC's and altered art type of stuff.
Here's the little image I showed in the video, I used faded vintage type paper by Papermania, and cut three scallop circles (scallop3 Lacy Labels cartridge) at 5 1/2", 5 1/4" and 5" and overlapped them. Those papers are from the same papermania stack, there is a tiny dot of gold stickles on the candle, but of course that doesn't show up in the photo. Although she is stamped onto cream cardstock, for some reason it looks whiteish in the photo. Ah well, you will just have to think cream......... I love this sentiment for a vintage look card............






Promarkers used for the sepia effect:
Satin
Pastel Beige
Sandstone
Cinnamon
Cocoa

I'll be back tomorrow with another video, I forget which one - my head is spinning with videos this week, especially since I had to redo a few of them thanks to my faulty editing. I think Quentin Tarantino's job is quite safe...............sigh

It's been quite cold here in our part of Florida for the past couple of days. I thought I would just mention that to cheer up all my UK blog friends who get a bit cheesed off at this time of year if I mention swimming pools or iced coffee. (I won't mention that the cold spell is going and it's warming up nicely for the rest of the week..... it's better not to talk about these things I think)

See you all tomorrow with the mystery video

  8. This is absolutely stunning.

    Loving the tips :) I MUST have some of those markers! Why oh why must you be such a temptress? Did you hear me thinking about investing in some new markers? O was it the smell of wood burning? Alas, whatever the case, I am impressed both with the markers and you ability to wow us with them.

  43. My niece just moved to the Tampa area from here in Buffalo, NY. Her boyfriend was posting the other day how it was getting so chilly there - about 50 degrees - so they had to get into the hot tub and warm up. OH my heart bleeds for them!!!! right now it is 44 here. Hope it warms up for you very soon.
    Very cute card! Thanks for all these tutorials!

  70. The Sepia tone is my favorite so far. I've been in the rehab center for six weeks since my two back surgeries, but when I get home I'm going to invest in some more Promarkers. Our JoAnn's carries them so I'll get some to go with the set I won from you. Bless you.
