Dotty about Colours

I love sharing different techniques to use your crafting products to get extra mileage from them and economical ways of travelling with crafting materials so that you don't have to take everything but the kitchen sink.  Today I'm sharing a video tutorial that shows you how to add colour to your projects without any coloured ink pads.  The dot colouring technique using Blends (or Markers) also gives your project a unique appearance and expands your skill repertoire.  

You will see that this technique can be used to create completely different designs all using the same tools of just your Blends.  (I prefer Blends over Markers simply to get the gradation of colours, but you could also get a similar effect by choosing colours in the same family and going from dark to light.)

This first card using the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and the following Blends: Calypso Coral (L&D), Petal Pink (L), Old Olive (L&D), Daffodil Delight (L), Soft Suede (L&D), Grey Granite (L).  The base cardstock is Old Olive.  The sentiment is from the Posted For You stamp set.

My second card features the Bloom and Grow stamp set.  Blends are Rococo Rose (L&D), and Flirty Flamingo (L&D).  The base layer is Rococo Rose.

Lastly, as you'll see the video below, this card uses the Pine Tree Punch.  Sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays.  Blends and cardstock are: Just Jade, Rococo Rose, Bumblebee.  The Whisper White cardstock is 1" shorter than the width of the card.

Now take a look and see how easy and fun it is to make up this last card yourself!
