Colour Blocking & Blendabilities

Today I have a card for you that I have used the Colour Blocking technique on for the background and Blendabilities for the flowers.

Narelle Fasulo - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

I was set a challenge by my upline to create a card using the Colour Blocking technique. Colour Blocking is where you either press the acrylic block straight onto the ink pad or colour the acrylic  block with markers, and then stamp onto the paper. That is just a basic run down, but there is so much more you can do with this technique. If you are interested  in learning more then why not come to my Tools & Techniques class on August 2nd.

I also used Blendabilities to colour in the flowers. I love how easy they are to use. I can see me using them a lot in the future. On this card I used the Cherry Cobbler and the Daffodil Delight pens.

One last thing I used to create this card was the ColorCoach.

I started with Cherry Cobbler as I love how rich the Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities are. The combination I chose from the ColorCoach was Cherry Cobbler, Daffofil Delight and Early Espresso.  I was a bit dubious about the Early Espresso as I knew I wanted to use the Colour Blocking technique and wasn't sure how that would come out. But I was pleasantly surprised.

I love the 'arty' look of this card. It is a little different to your normal card and I love it. I hope you do too.
