This week I held my first blendabilities class and we had sooooo much fun! Have you heard of blendabilities? If not, well let me tell you a bit about them! Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers are alcohol based markers made exclusively for blending and shading. If you love coloring, you will love these markers! And even if you don’t love coloring, you will once you try these! They are amazing! The markers come in a package of 3…a light, medium and dark shade of one color. These 3 different shades allow you to put together simply stunning projects…like this one! I made this little project as a gift for my guests at this week’s blendability class.
For this project, I used the cherry cobbler blendabilities assortment. The deep, dark cherry cobbler color is perfect for blending! I love how the shading gives my flower such depth and dimension. To make this flower, I used a memento ink pad and stamped the blended bloom image onto a piece of white cardstock. Since the markers are alcohol based, you must use a memento ink pad (stazon won’t work). Once I had the image stamped, I started with the darkest shade of cherry cobbler…I simply added color in random spots on the flower. Next I took the medium shade of cherry cobbler and colored next to the dark…I blended the dark and medium together by overlapping the medium color where I ended with the darker color. Then I just repeated this process with the light colored cherry cobbler marker. Oh…and I used the daffodil delight markers to shade and color the center of the flower. It turned out gorgeous! I used it to decorate the front of one of those little fry boxes. Give a try! You will love it!
