I was playing with the Stampin' Blend markers and wanted to show you how they work and what result you get when you color with them.
The Stampin' Blends are alcohol based markers that truly blend together to give you great artistic results. They come in a set of 2 markers, one light and one dark, and they have 2 different tips, one fine and one broad.
Here is the finished card.
Then, I colored the center with the dark shade of the Daffodil Delight marker. Next, I highlighted the darker areas with the dark shade of the Calypso Coral marker.
Using the light shade of the Calypso Coral marker and I colored in the petals one at a time, blending the colors together.
You can see how the colors blended. I was unsure of the look, but then I waited to see what would happen as the ink dried.
So, what do you think of the Blends?
Here I played with some other colors: Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Night of Navy and Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie, Pink Pirouette, Cherry Cobbler, and Daffodil Delight.
Do you have a favorite color blend?
Keep in mind that the ink does leak through the paper, so make sure you have some paper on your crafting table. This is what the other side of the paper looks like.
This is the finished card again.
I used the "Ruffled" embossing folder in Daffodil Delight cardstock for the background and cut out "celebrate" with the framelits in Basic Black and stamped the "you" in Calypso Coral.Thank you Kim Mosher for lending me her Blends!!
And check out my previous post I posted earlier about making my first box to hold the whole collection of Blends for Kim. Here is my second box I made for Linda's Blends.
