Markers to Dye for

Another technique that we practiced at the marker techniques class last night is dyeing. Stampin' write markers make it so easy to quickly create accessories that coordinate exactly with other Stampin' Up! products. Simply take a white fabric accessory, like the flowers from the pretties kit or white ribbon, and dye them with the markers to get the color you need.

On this card the flowers were dyed with the cameo coral stampin' write marker and the narrow white grosgrain ribbon was dyed with two different markers -- cameo coral on the edges and so saffron in the center (you might have to click on the card to see both of the colors). How cool is that?

If you want to find out for yourself how wonderful Stampin' Write markers are, why not join my marker club? You can spread out your marker purchases over 4 months and get a level 1 hostess set of your choice as a bonus! Contact me at stampwithdiane@comcast.net to join today!

So happy to see someone using and promoting markers, other than Copic's. Many people simply can't justify the costs of Copic's, especially when they will not 'magically' turn into coloring artists, just by using them. I have the complete set of SU markers and a few Copic's (which I wanted to experiment with). In the end, I would never trade my SU markers for anything! I'm not a SU demo, just someone addicted to stamping.
