Blending Technique Tuesdays

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!
