Top Tip Tuesday – Blend Colouring Tips. On Saturday I shared a #Simplestamping Saturday project that included some colouring with Blends Markers and I have been asked for some tips on this. So, timing being everything, I am striking while the iron is hot to share my thoughts on this.
Some quick information on Blends first. These come in a selection of Stampin’ Up! colours, so you know that they will match your favourite Stampin’ Up! Colours. Each Blends colour comes in two shades, a light and a dark. You can order them as single colours or in a Combo pack, the price is the same either way. They are £4.25 each or £8.50 for the Combo pack.
Personally I like to use the the brush tip and use the Light colour first. I cover the whole of the area that will be in the specific colour, then I add the Dark colour before blending with the light again to get a smooth blend. In the video you will see the difference between my preferred method and using the Dark first. I also show how to use the Colour Lifter and adding a Light grey around the image to help it ‘pop’, and to cover any over colouring!!
I really hope you find these hints and tips helpful. As always, if you have anything you would like me to help you with, just let me know and I will do what I can.
