Coloring with Blendabilities


When I first heard about Blendabilities, I wasn’t all that excited.  I never jumped onto the Copics bandwagon, and I didn’t do a whole lot of coloring with markers.  Frankly, it all sounded a little intimidating!  But, like the good little lemming that I am, I dutifully ordered some of the new blendies, because I NEED TO HAVE IT ALL!!!!  I did get to use them at Brian’s open house, and I’ve been reading about everyone’s experiences, and have watched some of the informational videos, so tonight I decided it was time to finally use them!

I opened my new pack of Park Lane DSP, chose my colors and stamp set and got to work.  It took awhile to color all those petals on the dahlia, but I really like how it came out.  I fussy cut the flower, and then colored the cut edges with the lightest cherry cobbler pen.  I also used the 2 way glue pen and added some dazzling diamonds to the center of the flower, because it was just crying out for some bling!  I’m wondering now if I should have used some rhinestones instead–maybe next time!  I could not find a current “Happy Birthday” stamp in my stash that fit the word window punch, so I had to use a retired one–time to add to my next order, lol!

Without further ado, here is my card:

Paper:  Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Whisper White, Park Lane DSP

I am thrilled to welcome all of you who came over here after reading  Brian’s post today!  I get so much inspiration and enjoyment reading other stamper’s blogs, and I hope that I do that for you all!
