Wow! The new Stampin' Blends premier alcohol markers are outstanding! The demonstrator pre purchase opportunity began on Sunday, mine arrived yesterday and I did not have a chance to play with them until today - it was killing me! They are anticipating the markers will be available for customers to purchase before the end of the year. Want them now?! Simply join the Stampin' Up! family and save big by getting them in your starter kit!
I was so impressed with the quality of these markers. I felt like an artist and was thrilled with the results! Each marker comes in a light and dark shade with the exception of the Ivory, Bronze, and Color Lifter which are all single markers. The light and darks give you some pretty amazing shading results, and because the markers are alcohol based you can blend the lights and darks together to get rid of any lines.
Coloring is my happy place!! So much fun playing and creating! The image was stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black on Thick Whisper White card stock. I used Daffodil Delight (light) and both of the Calypso Coral markers (light and dark) to give my mermaid auburn hair.
For the tail I used the Pool Party and Bermuda Bay sets of markers (both light and dark). I was so intent on coloring that I missed a text from my husband. He asked why I did not respond, I said I was busy "working" - love my job!! After I was done coloring I applied Wink of Stella to the tail - so sparkly!
I used Old Olive Stampin' Blends (light and dark) for the ferns. I also added some color around the edges of the card with the light Pool Party Blend. I used the Color Lifter to erase any harsh lines.
These markers are amazing and currently only available to Stampin' Up! demonstrators through October 15th. To order yours, simply join the Stampin' Up! family by clicking here.
