What Sets Them Apart:
- The Stampin' Up! rectangular barrel keeps your markers from rolling away!
- Flat storage helps to maintain the life of each marker.
- Each marker comes with a tip on each end: brush and fine.
- Marker tips are made of nylon, which is superior to polyester which can fray.
- Color coded caps.
- Stampin' Up! markers coordinate wonderfully with our cardstock, and can be used with transparent sheets.
Learn more about the new Blendabilities in the "How To" videos from Stampin' Up! at the bottom of today's post. But first I want to share a project I created with my Blendabilities.
I used the Blended Bloom single stamp with the Blendabilities to create this card. It's actually pretty easy to blend the dark, medium and light versions of each color to achieve even shading and create beautiful dimension with these.
I will tell you that it takes playing with these a little while to learn what works best, but once you get the hang of them, they're easy to use : ) After playing with my Blendabilities for a little while, here are some tips I'd like to share...
- Stamp the image in Memento Ink onto Whisper White Card Stock.
- Make sure to have a couple layers of Grid Paper under your card stock before you begin coloring. They are made to saturate the card stock, so be sure to protect your work surface.
- Work in small sections at a time with all three levels of color, rather than trying to color the entire image with one color at a time. Blending is easier while the colors are still moist.
- Use the bullet tip of each marker for better control.
- Begin by outlining the inside edge of the stamped image with the Dark color.
- Next add the Medium color in tiny circles right next to the dark color.
- Then use the Light color to blend the darker colors into the white space. Continue to blend all the colors together until you achieve the look you desire.
