#TGIF129 | Sketch Challenge | Introducing Stampin' Blends

Hello and welcome!! It's time again for the most awesome TGIF Challenges challenge and this week its a fabulous, my favourite, a sketch!!!

It's pretty straight forward and you can make it as is or change it up a bit to make it what you want.

Ive pulled out an older stamp set today, Birthday Blooms, because I wanted to play and have a create with the new Stampin' Blend Alcohol Markers. While these marks are only available to Stampin' Up! demonstrators at this moment I wanted to whet your appetite to show you how gorgeous they are.

These markers will be available to customers sometime later this year but right at this moment there is no definite release date. Fingers crossed it is soon.
There are 12 colour combo packs, all with a Dark and Light Marker. There will also be an Ivory and Bronze marker which are great to get those skin tones and last but by no means least there will be a colour lifter. Lots of options! 
The colours that the markers will come in are Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, Old Olive, Pink Pirouette, Pool Party, Pumpkin Pie,  Rich Razzleberry and Smoky Slate.

I've used here today the Old Olive markers and the Pink Pirouette markers. I didn't even think but because the Pink Pirouette is a light colour it makes it quite difficult to photograph, well for me anyway. I hope that you can see the graduation in colour with the Pink Pirouette as it looks beautiful on the card in real life.


Birthday Blooms is perfect to use with the Blends as it is and open line image and gives you lots of fabulous options to practice your colouring skills. The way that the image is drawn it shows your where you should make the image darker or leave it a bit lighter.


When colouring with the Stampin' Blends I like to put a little bit of the dark colour down first and then use the lighter marker to blend over the harsh lines of the dark colour and draw some of that dark colour out and so it blends. When colouring though try not to put down too much colour as the colour from the markers may bleed out of the lines of the image. Maybe when colouring don't put the colour all the way to the edge of image. This will help if there is a bit of bleeding from the colour.
 

I really enjoyed playing and practicing with the new Stampin' Blends. I'm looking forward to practicing and playing with them more. Watch this space as I'm sure I will have lots more creations using the fabulous markers. And as soon as we get a date on their release for customers you will be the first to know.
