Speaking of that...I've been receiving a few questions on one of 12 Weeks of Christmas newsletter projects. - the Joyful Christmas Poinsettia card.  So I thought I'd share it here today, along with some tips.



Dawn's Blender Pen Technique Tip:

  • This technique is great for a subtle watercolor look without as much work as traditional watercoloring
  • Stamp and color in "stages"
    • Stamp poinsettia image with Cherry Cobbler ink
    • Immediately use Blender Pen to "blend and move" the ink color around
      • Do not pick up ink color from the inkpad
      • Just "pull" color directly from stamped image using a circular motion with the blender pen
      • Be quick and don't over blend, as the paper will "pill" if overworked
      • Not every area needs to be completely colored in
  • Repeat for the leaves, stamping with Always Artichoke
