Today’s tutorial is all about the new stampin’ blends. These are Stampin’ Up!’s new alcohol markers that are awesome! They are available November 1st (next Wednesday).
Here is a cute card using the blends and a picture guide on what to do. So…let’s get started.
Step 1: Stamp with Memento ink. This will allow for no smearing.
Step 2: Get out a light and dark of the same color as well as the color lifter.
Step 3: Color as desired. I started with the darker color and left a blank space for the highlight on the right side of the balloon. I used the color lifter to bring some texture and depth to the balloon.
Step 4: Finish coloring. Notice the shading.
Step 5: Attach balloon with dimensionals. (I used the technique from a few Wednesdays ago. This is the one that used the tip of the aqua painter to make the edges roll down.) Mat and finish the card by stamping an appropriate greeting.
With inky fingers,
