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
