Thanks for looking,
Quick run to the store and pick up a giant Hershey bar! I used the "Adoring Hearts" jumbo wheel and the "Sweet Shapes" set by Stampin' Up! to create this quick gift. Using a cartridge in the wheel handle made it go even quicker. Something I don't have very many of! I used Whisper White and Bravo Burgundy card stock. The hearts were stamped on the card stock first and then lined up with the punch after. The trick to getting them centered!!! Just layers from there! It's fun and it's EXTREMELY quick!
Ok, moving on here. I stamped the image on watercolor paper using Staz-on ink. When ever you are going to use a blender pen it's best to use Staz-on ink. I prefer to use watercolor paper when I use a blender pen too. The paper is designed to allow you to work an area a bit longer than regular card stock will. And there have been times that I was able to blot out an area of color I didn't like on the watercolor paper. That would NEVER happen with card stock! I also used markers here. When I use my blender pens I take a piece of plastic, actually it's a sheet of Shrinky Dinks (cut into quarters). I scribble the pen on the plastic and I pick up the color with the blender pen. When coloring like this make sure your plastic is on a piece of white paper so you get a clear view of the color and where you have picked up color off it. Any bits of color left behind on your plastic is now mixed with the blender pen solution and is diluted.
Thanks for looking!
I'm not very fond of the way the colors came out in the scan to tomorrow I may take a photo of it and edit this post.
Ok, I just got a look at the final product here and I'm DEFINITELY taking a photo of it tomorrow. The scan is not doing it justice. Squint when you look at it for now, maybe that will help!!!!!
