Hey Love Stampin Blends

Tips for Coloring the Animals with Stampin’ Blends:

  • Start by stamping your animals with Memento Black Ink if you are going to color in with Stampin’ Blends. Then let your image set for a minute before you start coloring.
  • Stamp on Stampin’ Up!’s Whisper White card stock. It’s smooth as silk and works well with the Stampin’ Blends.
  • Light – Dark – Light is how I prefer to color in images to get a nice smooth shading.
  • Act Fast! Don’t wait too long before adding more color. The ink will blend the best if you do it right away.
  • If you don’t have the Basic Black Stampin’ Blends, use the bullet point of the Dark Smoky Slate to color the skunk. Then add shading with the same marker.
  • Color in the white parts of the skunk with the Wink of Stella Glitter brush to add a little extra pizzazz
  • Oops! If you get color outside the lines you can pick it up with the Color Lifter!
