This week at Just Add Ink the challenge is to Just Add Blue and Bling.
I decided to use my new stamp set Bordering on Romance and try colouring it with Stampin Up markers and a blender pen on watercolour paper. I’ve never tried that technique before.
I actually don’t have many markers and I wanted 3 blues. The strange thing is that I do have my most favourite SU blues in a marker (Baja and NQN) and yet amazingly I decided to try some different blues for a change. I must have been in a daring mood that day!!!
Anyway I used bashful blue, pacific point and night of navy. I don’t think I have ever made a card with night of navy before and I’m not real sure about pacific point either actually. But the gamble paid off, I love how this card turned out.
Stamps : Bordering on Romance, Perfectly Penned
Card : night of navy, vanilla, subtles dsp stack, watercolour paper
Ink : stazon, crumb cake, markers (night of navy, bashful blue, pacific point, celery, olive)
Other : bashful blue taffeta ribbon (ret.) rhinestones, big shot, labels framelit, blender pen
These blues could never replace my favourites but I should use them more often because they’re beautiful too! I hope you’ll take a look at what the rest of the JAI team came up with this week. Join us and make a card with your favourite blues, or like me, try some blues you’ve been neglecting.
