Have you tried the new Blendabilities? Here are TWO examples using the new alcohol-based markers. I will also link you over to the technique videos on the Stampin' Up! You Tube channel! If you haven't subscribed to their channel, do it now! Their videos are so very helpful!
I LOVE this In This Together Stamp set and found it very easy to color using the Skin Tone Blendabilities Markers. I added Susan Campfield's video below so you can check it out - she does a great job explaining exactly how to do it! (Thanks to Susan as I copied her design as well! I loved it that much!)
Here's my favorite Chevron Background again and isn't that shaded Blended Bloom flower so beautiful? Check out the videos below.
