Alcohol Markers for Beginners Amazing Life Card

I’ve got a quick how-to video for you today with Stampin’ Blends and the Amazing Life stamp set.  Are you like me? Were you pretty new to the whole alcohol marker thing last year when Stampin’ Up! brought out the Blends?  Or were you a tried and true copic marker “user”?  

I have to say I’d shied away from Copics since there were soooo many different colours. And none matched exactly with Stampin’ Up! colours.  Plus I wasn’t too sure how to go about blending all the different ones to get the colours I really wanted.

But you know what?  Both those concerns disappeared with the Blends. I love them and can’t imagine not having them in my box of colouring tools.

Let’s take a peek at our project.

TIPS for Alcohol Markers for Beginners

Are you all set to blend away some fun time and don’t yet have any?  My suggestion is to start with a few colours to see for yourself how EASY they are to use. For example, you can select the colours I’ve used here. Or get maybe three combos in colours you absolutely love and use in ink and paper already.
