Techinique Tuesday

Technique Tuesday: For this technique, it's simple: Blender Pens. You can use Blender Pens in a wide variety...with pastels, watercolor crayons, or with ink pads like I did here. Blender Pens are quite unique. It's just a translucent tip but then once you "add" your color to it, it colors in gradually becoming lighter and lighter. This makes the blender pen a perfect choice for shading lined images such as a flower, scentery, or this robot. They are also a cheap clean way to do shading and colored images.

This card was part of the card buffet I had at the Columbus Catholic Scrapbooking Fundraiser this past weekend. I make up a sample and then cut all the supplies and you can break away any time to complete the cards. You can make as many or as little as you want...just like a buffet.
