Remarkable You with Stampin Blends

I held my Occasions Catalogue Launch Party yesterday.  It was such a damp and humid day but we all had a great catch up for our first crafting session of the year.

These cards were part of my display and demonstration for the new Stampin Blends.  The Remarkable You stamp set is great for colouring with nice open designs. I was only going to make a couple of cards but the blends are so addictive, I couldn’t stop trying out the different colours!

I am absolutely no artist but these things make me feel like one!  They are so lovely to use, I find it really relaxing to sit and colour and the more I play with them the better the results, so my advice is just to enjoy them and play!  

The blends come in 12 different colours, with a light and a dark shade in each.  There is also an Ivory, Bronze, and colour lifter.

For these cards I covered the flower with the lighter colour then used the darker shade at the base of the flower and a little up the sides of the petals.  I then went back in with the lighter marker and blended the points were the two shades met.  I find a circular motion works well to blend.  I have also used the colour lifter in a few places, just to lighten the odd patch up and add a little more interest (just playing with it really!)

It is so quick and simple and I was really happy with the results. 

You can build your blend collection one by one, in duo packs, or all the colours at once.   View Blend Colour Range
