Artisan Wednesday Wow- Blendabilities

Thanks for joining us for another week of inspiration!
This week has been a roller coaster for me & I am dedicating this post to my Grandma Mary.
I know she is in a better place but it is still heart breaking to lose someone that you loved so much. She was the best grandma ever! My heart is so sad especially for my Papa. They have been together for 65 years! Ok before the water works start again I better move on.
How about we talk about Stampin Up's new Blendabilities markers. First let me say, I am still very new to alcohol markers so I am still learning & practicing but here are the two cards I created...

They are pretty much the same card but they have completely different looks & that was achieved just by stamping in 2 different inks. For the first one I wanted to get a soft look that could work for a sympathy card so I inked my stamp with Crumb Cake & stamped off before stamping my card. Then I used the Blendabilities, light to dark, to color the flowers & went back slightly with the color lifter.

 For this one I used the Memento Tuxedo Black ink & did the same method of coloring.
Well that's all I have for now so lets hop on over to visit Alanna!
