I absolutely love my Blends for colouring all kinds of images – but I thought you might especially want to see my video tips for detailed colouring with Stampin Up alcohol markers. After all, not all rubber stamped images have lots of coverage like this wine-inspired one right?
And if you think some of your itsy bitsy stamps are WAAY too small to colour with either of the ends of the Stampin Blends, just wait! Run and grab’em now because you’ll want to test these out lickety-split once you see my pointers.
But how about if we see our project first? It’s another fun one made with the Animal Outing stamp set. Three words for this stamp set…awesome, awesome, awesome! (OK, I know that’s technically only ONE word, but I think you get the picture! 😜)
Cute right? Did you see how small that branch is? Let’s take a closer peek so you can really see just how small I mean when I say “small”!
Pretty darn teeny! But don’t worry, I’ve got 8 quick and easy tips for detailed colouring with Stampin Up alcohol markers to share with you right now. Let’s take a gander…
If you’ve got all the colours of Blends so far (or maybe just a few), I wonder if you’ve been pretty much focussing on the brush tip for colouring? I know I was. After all, I’m usually in an all-fired hurry to get my card done (because I’m late – again!) So my bullet tips hadn’t really seen the light of day.
But that’s really not helping YOU – or me – get the best bang for our buck from our stamping supplies is it? So I played around a bit and now I think you have TONS more options of stamped images to give a try with your alcohol markers.
Do think you’ve got anything SMALLER than that branch in your stash of stamping supplies? I challenge you to stampede on down to your craft area and get busy to test out my tips!
You could even make this exact card if you want. Here’s everything I used. Just click on the image to get yours delivered right to your door. I do appreciate you shopping with me!
Detailed Colouring with Stampin Up Alcohol Markers
As a newly converted alcohol based marker junkie myself, I know you might be shying away from a-NUH-ther new tool!
So if you’re on the fence about alcohol markers, take a look at this post where I shared my favourite things about them. Or you might also like this one, where I give you my top ten tips for using the Stampin’ Blends.
Once I made the plunge, I can now say “I do LUV me my Blends”. In fact, I can hardly wait until the new colours from the 2018-19 Annual Catalogue are up for order! Only a couple days now though. Well, at least I think so.
Stampin’ Up! has said they’ll be available mid-June, and in my mind, that’s the 15th, so I suspect ANY day now, we’ll get the go-ahead. Then there’ll be no holding me back!
And once I get those baby’s in my hot little hands, I’ll be experimenting and playing. And who knows? I might even come up with more tips for detailed colouring with Stampin Up alcohol markers I can share with you!
