My first attempt at the Blendabilities - a new product line coming in the 2014-15 catalogue.  I've dabbled very briefly with alcohol markers before, and have a few copics and kuretake markers, but because I didn't have 'enough' colours to blend with, it seemed more like standard colouring in!  And the colours didn't match the patterned papers, cardstock and embellishments I wanted to use them with.  So, like the forgotten scrapping photos, they have languished...
At the recent Inspire Create Share Convention in Melbourne,  a set of three Blendabilities markers and the Blended Bloom stamp were given away to every attendee.  I added Old Olive and Daffodil Delight marker trios to my Demonstrator Pre-order, and had a play.  I forgot to get the magical 'Color Lifter' though, so made do with another brand.  It gave a more 'rustic' look to the flower than I intended, or maybe it was the rusty applicator??  In any case, I simply built a rustic style card around it.  .  The colours are the new Mossy Meadow and Hello Honey, on a base of Naturals White.  The leaves and butterflies are from a new set called "Kinda Eclectic", which I think will be a new favourite.  As a finishing touch, I highlighted some leaves and stamens with Crystal Effects.

The greeting is from a set called "Gifts of Kindness"  Sorry about the tilta head requirement, I forgot to rotate the pic before uploading.

Kinda Fun, Kinda Versatile, Kinda Eclectic!

I love Convention for the friends, the happy chatter and gathering, the business stuff, and the stampin!  We are treated with lots of goodies from the upcoming catalogue, and while I can't show you that just yet, I can show you this card we made during one of the Make and Take sessions. It's using a new set called "Kinda Eclectic" and I think I'm in love - sort of grungy but elegant at the same time.
It also features some of the new In Colors, Mossy Meadow, Tangelo Twist, and Hello Honey
Let me know what you think :-)
