Swaps -Blendabilities and the Bloom with Hope Hostess Stamp Set
Blendabilities, the new alcohol markers from Stampin’ Up! are so fun and so easy to use. These markers come in a set of 3 – light, medium and dark and I have found that they will blend easily. The one thing I really like about these blendabilities, is that you do not require a lot of different shades to effect the blending process. These are great for those learning to color with alcohol markers.

To color the petals, I started with the lightest shade of the Rich Razzleberry blendabilities and coloured the whole petal, taking the medium shade and blending where there would be shadow and finally taking the darkest shade and blending where the shadows would be the deepest.
Finally, I took the Color Lifter Pen and highlighted several areas in the petals. The Color Lifter pen does not eliminate the color, but moves it around to create lighter shades.
