In addition to the beautiful shading and blending possibilities with Stampin’ Up! Blendabilities alcohol based markers, you can use them to color white heat embossed images, buttons, pearls, rhinestones. Are you smiling thinking about the added mileage you can get with these fabulous markers?
Here’s my 1 Minute to WOW! Video to show you how I used Blendabilities markers to color white heat embossed images on the Daffodil Delight heart frame above and row of hearts below,. So easy and fun! I want to credit Lisa Johnson for introducing me to this technique thru this video.
Don’t miss my 7 Rules (and video) for Blendabilities Markers for tips on shading and blending.
STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:
- This technique works best on color embossed line images. Solid images can show the brush marks.
- I used the darkest shades within each color group. Blendabilities come in sets of three (three shades of one Stampin’ Up! color) so experiment.
- Emboss in white on DARK cardstock. It’s very forgiving if you stray outside the lines. I like coloring with the paintbrush end of the Blendabilities markers.
- And color your bling, too! Blendabilities markers not only allow you to “emboss” in more Stampin’ Up! colors, the colors will stay put when added to buttons, pearls and rhinestones.
