Video - Prismacolor Blending Options

Hi there:) I'm back again today to share another MFT Beary Special Birthday card + video tutorial.

This time I've played with my Prismacolor Pencils and instead of blending with Gamsol I've used the Blender Pen and Colourless Blending Pencil.

Must say I enjoyed working with them both and am happy with the results...

Bright blended butterflies

I am back today for Scrapbook Boutique to share another card created with Echo Park's Butterfly stencil.

You know I love my ink blending so had a tonne of fun with these sweet colours...

Echo Park Butterfly Stencil

Hi there - Linda here today on this fab Friday (leading into a long weekend - yahoooo) and I've been playing with Echo Park's Butterflies Stencil.

There are so many things you can do with stencils - very versatile tools to have in your stash.

For today's card I firstly chose a pretty paper from Echo Park's Spring Paper Pad.

I then lay my stencil over the paper and squashed Versa Mark ink all over it. The ink was then sprinkled with clear embossing powder and when heat embossed you can see the pattern through the butterflies. It's then time to choose an ink colour (mine is Distress Ink - Picked Raspberry) and you blend that all over the panel. The embossing resists the ink but the patterned paper is covered. I love the look it gives. See what I mean...
