Blended Bloom Card

Today's card uses Stampin' Up!'s new Blendabilities - exclusive alcohol-based marker sets that come in a 3-pack of light, medium and dark shades (of the same color) and provide your projects a more saturated look with blended colors.  These markers make me feel like the artist I know that I'm not.  I used the new Daffodil Delight and Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities on the Blended Bloom stamp image.  After playing with the new Blendabilities a bit, I decided to color in most of the flower with the lightest shade of Daffodil Delight first then add the medium and dark shades where I felt they would look best.  Then, I added the Rich Razzleberry shades in the middle of the flower.  My card layout was a simple one of Whisper White layered on top of Rich Razzleberry card stock and all layered on top of a Daffodil Delight card base.  I added the "happy birthday" greeting in black, some (retired) black satin ribbon and two Rich Razzleberry Candy Dots to my card before adding the colored Blended Bloom stamped image which I hand cut and added with dimensionals.

I hope you will give these new Blendabilities markers a try today.  They will make the inner artist in you come out and you will have lots of fun!
