Watercoloring With Blender Pens

This is really so easy that I can't believe I'm posting it. But, for those of you who don't even know what a Blender Pen is it may be eye opening! I'll show you the technique of watercoloring with a blender pen and then if you want to see the other technique on this card you'll need to read the tutorial Sandscapes. You'll need:

Blender Pens (aval in the Stampin' Up catalogue)
Stampin' Pastels
Stamped Line-art Image

1. Touch the tip of a blender pen to the desired pastel. If its a light color, you may need to slide the tip across the pastel to get more color. If its a darker color, just a touch should be good. You can always test on scrap paper first if you need to.

2. Start coloring the image. Don't use a whole lot of pressure, just go easy and color as if it were a marker. When the color fades out, go back to the pastels and reload the blender pen.

3. I chose to cut mine out because it was needed on the sandscape, but, most likely your image will be complete when the coloring is done.
