Keeping It Inside the Lines

Finally I had some time to just color and play with my FREE Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper from the Sale-a-Bration booklet.  I've been wanting to for so long, but had to find a time when I could relax and color without being rushed.

What did I color with you ask?  Why, our Watercolor Pencils of course!  These things have been so popular they were on the out of stock list, but they are back again and you can get yours now too!

Since I stamped on regular cardstock, I used our Blender Pens and they smoothed the colors out beautifully.  I used the Momentum Black ink since I didn't need it to be waterproof.  If I were stamping and coloring with our Aqua Pen, I would have used our Archival Black or StazOn Black.

I tried two different measurements for the borders.  Tell me which one you like best.

Melon Mambo (below) and Calypso Coral (way above) 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Basic Black - 5" x 3 3/4" (mambo) and 4 3/4" x 3 1/2" (coral)
Whisper White - 4 3/4" x 3 1/2" (mambo) and 4 5/8" x 3 3/8" (coral)
Basic Black - 4" x 2 1/8" (mambo) and  3 7/8" x 1 7/8" (coral)
DSP - 3 3/4" x 1 7/8" (mambo) and  3 3/4" x 1 3/4" (coral)

Basically - one card is 1/4" inch bigger on 2 sides when measuring and the other is 1/8" bigger.

I used a sentiment from Bunch of Blossoms.

Thank you for looking in today!  Have a Blessed Sunday.

  1. Oh how pretty! Love your coloring. With the blender pens are they suppose to be dry? I have had mine for a few years and really have never used them. I usually use the aqua painters. I pulled one out and the tip was dry and I was not sure what to do. I guess I should look to see if SU has a video on that. Well done my friend!

    1. Your blender pens should be wet! You can make a refill for them though that is really easy to do.

      2 tsp. glycerin
      4 tsp. distilled water
      ¼ tsp. rubbing alcohol

      I actually pull the tips of my blender pens out (very easy to gently tug) and soak them in the fluid, then put them back inside the end of the pen. The mix lasts forever, just keep it in an airtight container.
