Crafting with Artesprix Sublimation Markers

 

Sublimation Tag

This month at Designer Crafts Connection we are creating with Artesprix Sublimation Markers. I have seen the products demonstrated at shows but I have never worked with them before. I have to say they were fun and easy to use.

Artesprix Blog Hop

I received a great selection of products to work with. I got to work with a variety of classic colors, pastels, and a woodsy set.  I also got two sets of tags and a set of small, zipper top bags to work with. 

Artesprix has lots of products to work with and a ton of tips on how to  use them on their website

Sublimation markers

I stamped my images using the Sublimation Ink Pad and colored in with markers from different sets. I wanted to see if I could "blend" colors with the markers, so I layered colors on the flower petals and the leaves. 

Before and After Sublimation

Here is the tag after sublimation and the design sheet I used. I was pretty surprised the original design didn't change that much during sublimation. I guess I assumed it would disappear since it was moving to the tag! Nope- it stayed put right where it was.

Sublimation Flower

 Here's a close up of the flower. As you can see I was able to blend colors in the design- but I think I need a bit more practice to make it smoother. I was pretty happy with how this turned out though. 

DIY Craft Bag

My second project was a small take along craft bag for the princess. The transfer was not as crisp on this one- but that was probably my fault. I am pretty sure I shifted the bag during pressing. 

Sublimation Ink

To create this design I used small stamps and colored the ink directly to the stamp itself. This was quite the time gobbler! 

Stamping sublimation Ink

My workspace during this process was a mess! 

Stamped background

Here is a look at my design before I pressed it. It is very random and eclectic and I think my princess with love it. She always brings art supplies when we head out somewhere- so this should be a handy place to store them for her. 

Be sure to check out the Designer Crafts Blog to see all the projects made. There are some great ones!
