I am loving my Blendabilities Markers! They make coloring so much fun and there are so many ways to use them!!!
How many ways did I use my Blendabilities on the card above? If you guessed 4 then you are correct! I colored my ribbon, my rhinestones, my flower and created the polka dots! How fabulous is that!
For the Ribbon, I started with a piece of Whisper White Organza Ribbon and the lightest Rich Razzleberry Marker. Start coloring on the right side to about half way in, then take the darkest marker and start on the left and color to the middle where it meets the lightest color. Now take your medium marker and color the middle section overlapping over both the dark and light shades. This gives a fabulous ombre look to your ribbon! You know how I love me some ombre! 🙂
For the Rhinestones, just color one rhinestone with each of the 3 markers! It is as easy as that!
For the Flower, I stamped this one from the Flower Shop Stamp Set with my Memento Pad. Then starting with the darkest color, I started coloring the tips of all of the petals, then I grabbed the lightest color and colored the center of the flower and a little out. Finally, take your medium marker and color the middle, overlapping both the dark and lightest colors. I have also done it where I color with the darkest and lightest marker only and use the lines in the flower to color one section light, the next dark. Once I was done coloring, I took the Color Lifter and ran it along those tight lines. The Color Lifter sorta bleaches out the area so this gave a lighter look in those areas! Of course after coloring the flower, I used my Pansy Punch to punch it out!
For the Polka Dots, I adhered my flower to the Whisper White square with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then using the lightest marker start dotting all around the flower with a few farther out. Then take your medium marker and dot around the light dots and a few father out. With the darkest marker, dot randomly farther out. This will give the look that the dots fade out. I’m not the best with random so mine doesn’t really give that illusion but some come out better than others! 🙂
I put it all together with some Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry cardstock with a layer of Sweet Taffy Designer Series Paper in there! I love the bright colors and the way the flower pops! So cute! What is your favorite way to color with your Blendabilities? Leave me a comment down below!
