Today we are featuring Blendabilities for Technique Tuesday at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration. You will see the Blendabilities in the new Stampin' Up! catalog, but it will still be a few weeks before they are available for customer purchase. I've been having fun playing with mine, so I can't wait for you to get your hands on them too!
You will find a great tutorial at SSINK today on how to use these new markers. I've used them to color many flowers so far, but thought they would look great with Swallowtail.
I chose the Pumpkin Pie and the Daffodil Delight sets to color. Starting with the outside edges, I used the Dark Pumpkin Pie, then the Medium and the Light. I did the same with the Daffodil Delight, ending with the Light Daffodil in the middle of the butterfly. What I love most about these markers is how well they blend together, with the different shades and when switching colors.
Apparently I'm not a child anymore, and forgot how to color in the lines. I thought, "how am I going to cover this mistake up?" Then I remembered the Color Lifter Marker I bought with the Blendabilities. It worked! You can still see my mistake if you look closely, but it's so much better than it was.
I mounted the butterfly on an Old Olive base, and there we are!
