A Poodle Day — Monday Montage #103

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of ten stampers who love to share what we create with you, and all you have to do to follow along is click on the links at the bottom of each post.

Once Stampin’ Up! announced that they will soon be offering alcohol markers again, I couldn’t wait to dive in.  Demonstrators were allowed to pre-order them on October 1st, and everyone else can on November 1st.  I have been having fun playing with them, and love that you don’t have to be a coloring expert or artist to use them successfully.

I needed to make a birthday card and I have rarely stamped any of the adorable images in the Birthday Delivery stamp set because I thought they’d be hard to color.  But now that I have the new Stampin’ Blend markers, I decided to give it a go.  And it was easy!  I love these things!

I started by stamping the image with Memento black ink and let it dry a few minutes.  Then I used the two Smoky Slate markers, Cherry Cobbler markers, Pink Pirouette markers, and Pool Party markers to color this sweet poodle.

I applied some very lightly dyed Pink Pirouette embossing paste onto the card base and adhered some ribbon and trim pieces down under the focal image.

One thing I did learn is that the markers do bleed just a tiny bit, so the Color Lifter marker is a great investment for those times where your color ends up a little outside the lines.

You’re ready to hop on over to Breelin Renwick’s blog.  I always love seeing what she makes!  If you prefer to work your way backwards, you can jump back to Wendy Weixler’s blog.  Either way, be sure to work your way through all of the blogs so you don’t miss a thing.




Enjoy your Monday!  Thanks for stopping by!
