Colouring with alcohol markers - Stampin' Up! Blends

Hi everyone. It seems and has actually been a while since I was here to share projects with you.  I hope you are all well and the year has started in a good way for you. It is better for us now, but started with COVID which wasn't nice at all, but we thank our lucky stars that we weren't hospitalised and are now feeling much better. It is therefore good to be back and start to share with you again.  

This is a card I made with my Card Club ladies in one of our zoom sessions.  I send out packs with materials and the ladies use their stamps and tools to make the cards. However this was a slightly different class as I sent them a mini set of alcohol markers or Stampin' Blends as I know them.  We used them to colour in designs from the True Love DSP.  It is amazing the effects you can create with a minimum amount of colour choice and also by using the pens to blend the colours which the alcohol nature of the pens allows.  

The coloured flower layer is matted onto another pattern from the paper pack and a piece of Rich Razzleberry card.  

I show them a simple, fancy for where the front of the card base is folded back and then the design piece overlaps it to cover much of the remaining inside of the card.  

I also used a stamp set called Approaching Perfection from the Saleabration brochure for the sentiment you see on the front and the Happy Birthday that is stamped inside.  

I always find a little colouring very calming and as you focus on getting it all inside the lines, you can temporarily leave the monotony of being stuck at home.  Give it a try if you haven't already.  

More coming soon I hope as I get the mojo working again and need less recovery naps.  

Keep safe and keep stamping
