Probably most of you know, I just don't like to color when I stamp!
It's just a rare thing.
Part of it is I feel it takes longer!
And I'm a "stamp-n-go" kind o' girl!
Another thing is when I'm demoing, I try to be quick, so I'm not BORING you!!
But one last thing is I just don't feel like I color well!
I don't have a good concept of shading and the effects of lighting.
Well, I have to say, the Stampin' Blends made me look pretty impressive!
I'm so happy!!
Look at my leaves!!!
I followed some of the techniques from the videos Stampin' Up! published.
CLICK HERE to see my original post with all these videos.
I used Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry and the Color Lifter.
2 things that helped me feel most comfortable were:
- Working with a small area at a time, cuz they blend best when wet.
- Starting with the darker shade first and covering it with the lighter and continuing blending to an UNcolored area.
OH--and DON'T FORGET you need the Memento ink pad for your base image with these markers!--AND let it dry before continuing to add color!!
In case you didn't check it out yet--and so YOU don't have to do the math--there is NO financial advantage to ordering the whole kit of markers at once.
It's EASIER ordering 1 item. But you don't save money.
Ok, so I also mentioned today's project as a little reminder of the November Paper Pumpkin Kit....
As I expected, the Buffalo Plaid was prominent in the October kit. Yay!!
And I expect the November kit to have the white version in some way.
