I thought this Stampin’ Up! set was so fun when I saw it! It’s Cheerful Critters from the Occasions catalogue. There’s a number of different critters and sentiments that you can mix and match, so I thought this one was good for Valentine’s Day. I coloured the image quickly with Blendabilities (OK bad shadowing job on the sign, I know, sorry) and then popped it onto some Lullaby Designer Series Paper. I added a strip of the Pool Party cardstock (easy way to add an accent if you can’t find your ribbon…) and then added a little wooden heart from the Essentials Wooden Elements.
It’s fun to spend a bit of time adding colour with Blendabilities. Don’t forget that you should use the Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad for good results. If you’d like other tips using your Blendabilities, I will be holding another Blendabilities class Thursday, March 12th at 7pm – featuring the colours Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, and Wisteria Wonder. Cost will be $80 and includes all three sets of Blendabilities markers PLUS a Colour Lifter and the stamp set “A Happy Thing” from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue. If you already have those colours, you may order other colours instead, but please bring those colours with you to class. Registration will open tomorrow and will close Sunday, February 22nd.
