Stampin' Up! Australia - Color Coach Card #65 - Stampin' Up! Blendabilities

Strawberry Slush #1



I am skipping the Color Coach combination of Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloupe, but I promise I will come back to it. :)

Today I was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and I really loved the Color Coach Combo of Strawberry Slush, Rich Razzleberry and Sahara Sand. I wanted to put my Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities to good use on the 'I Like You' stamp set, and what a great sketch this was to use it!

The recipe at Less is More this week is 'Anything Goes'...just have fun...and I certainly did! :)

If anything, I think this card really highlights the difference between a blender pen/marker and a blendabilities pen. The Rich Razzleberry is coloured with the Blendabilities and the Strawberry Slush flower was coloured with a blender pen dipped in the ink pad and then highlighted with the marker....albeit not fantastically. You can see how smooth and blended the Rich Razzleberry flower is compared to the Strawberry Slush which is just a bit blotchy really. Oh well, I still like the overall effect. :)

Hope you like it too.
