Stampin Markers... Blending Tips...

Ok... yes, you have seen this little card before... click here for the card fold details...

But 3 variants to show a quick comparison between the currently-not-available-for a few-weeks Stampin Blends... and Many Marvellous Markers (aka Stampin Markers)

First up... the original Stampin Blends version... click here for more details on the colouring...
Second up... straightforward Stampin Markers colouring... looks somewhat... flat! Lovely coral colour... but no colour variation at all...
Look in comparison to the Stampin Blends at the top... 
And lastly... after a bit of a Eureka moment in a class... the Blended Stampin Markers option...
Now isn't that better than the first marker version! Just a little bit of marker direct colouring... blended out with a Blender Pen... colour variation a go go... quicker than Blends... and nice and controllable if you do one flower/leaf at a time... and actually my preferred colouring method with the Springtime Foils papers... as they have a slight sheen to them... which allows the marker ink to be moved round brilliantly in this way...

Here are the Fully Marker (top) and Blended Marker cards side by side... what a difference...
Oh and the ribbon was also coloured using the Stampin Markers too... just had to wipe the ink off (particularly off the metallic silver edge)... and leave the ribbon to dry a bit longer... 

So grab your Blender Pens and Stampin Markers... and blend your inky heart out!

And I would love to start a new Stampin Markers Club if there is enough interest... £45 per month plus P&P for 2 months starting now (so you could get 1 Sale A Bration freebie with your March order too!!) OR £33 per month plus P&P for 3 months starting in April . So contact me by clicking here if you would be interested...

OR for anyone that can order all in one go by the end of March... so £99 now... and 2 free Sale A Brations... order direct online here... and I will refund you the £4.95 postage (by cheque) and send you a gift worth over £10 too...

OR as the best value option... you could sign up with Stampin Up! for £99... which pays for the markers... and select another £31 product... plus 2 free stamp sets (any value)  if you sign up by 31st March... Free P&P... And I would be very happy to send you that £10+ gift too... Click here for more information.... and /or Click here to join my Team...
