I’m never the first to jump on board a trend … so, I’m sure you’ve heard about the *new* Blendabilities by now! Back in July, Stampin’ Up! released alcohol markers called Blendabilites. Designed for colouring on Whisper White, these little gems provide smooth, blended colour that looks fabulous. Each pack contains three markers of varying shades so that you can get ‘light & depth’ within your image. Tuxedo Black Momento Ink is the recommended ink for stamping, but further testing from SU! means that there are quite a few of inks within their Classic range that also work. Each combination gives a slightly different finish.

Over the past couple of months I’ve added a few packs of my favourite colours and a couple of the stamps that are fabulous for colouring. Although super easy to use, there’s a bit of a knack to it and I’m still practicing. Stampin’ Up!’s You Tube channel has some great video tutorials.
The very first card I made with my “Blendies” used the Perfect Peacock Stamp & the Coastal Cabana and Daffodil Delight pen sets. Because of my beginner status, I used the Annual Catalogue to guide my colouring and kept the card fairly simple. Simple is often so effective and the Blendabilities certainly help to give it that ‘wow’ factor. Kelly x
