Copic Markers and Silk Flowers

Mar 17, 2010

These two make a won­der­ful com­bi­na­tion. I picked up a bunch of cheap super pale yel­low silk flow­ers at JoAnns sev­er­al months ago. I fig­ured I would use them for some project as their size was per­fect. Well over the week­end while I was putting away, throw­ing out and orga­niz­ing my scrap­room I start­ed think­ing about dye­ing them dif­fer­ent col­ors but want­ed a super fast and easy way. Well just then I had my cop­ic mark­ers in my hand and made a note to myself to give it a try once I was fin­ished with my scrap­room.

Sup­plies Used: Martha Stew­art Crys­tal Coarse Glit­ter, Col­lage Pauge Instant Decoupage — Glossy, Cop­ic Ciao Mark­er R22 — Light Prawn, Silk Flower, Paint­brush, Tweez­ers

All I did was col­or the entire flower using the Super Brush end of my Cop­ic Mark­er. Brushed on some Instant Decoupage with a paint­brush then hold­ing the stem of the flower with my tweez­ers I dipped the wet flower into the con­tain­er of glit­ter, shook it around a bit to get it com­plete­ly cov­ered in glit­ter, tapped off the excess and let it dry. It is that easy and only took about 5 min. to make from start to fin­ish.

Now you can have per­fect­ly matched flow­ers for any of your projects. I hope you give this a try it is real­ly fun.
