Welcome to this months Creative Inking Blog Hop featuring Creating with Color.  I am sharing Stampin’ Blends coloring with the Hedgehugs stamp set.

Don’t you love the HedgeHugs?   So adorable!   What I really want to call your attention to is the detail and coloring of the Hedgehogs.   I used our amazing Stampin’ Blends Alcohol markers.  I want to focus on a couple of Stampin’ Blends techniques today;

  • Using them with our classic ink pads
  • Simple color layering and shading technique
  • Using them to color embellishments like the metallic shapes

Stampin’ Blends are Stampin’ Up!’s version of alcohol markers.  Click here for another video that I did introducing the Stampin’ Blends.  I also shared a couple of techniques.

Features of the Stampin’ Blends

  • Add just the right amount of color where you need it with the brush tip or fine-point.
  • Each color (except Ivory and Bronze) has a light and dark shade marker, available individually or in a combo pack.
  • Press fit seal prevents air from entering the barrel and causing evaporation.
  • The markers are not refillable but you can purchase individual markers should you need to replace your most used marker.
  • Stampin’ Up! has done extensive testing for evaporation and marker life and is very happy with the results.
  • The nestable lids are easy to keep track of and have a tight fit for long-lasting color.

Check out how adorabley colored these Hedgehogs are!
