I've been having so much fun playing with all the new Colorista products. The coloring pads are super high quality. I love that I don't have to stamp a thing. Just grab my pad and box of markers and relax.
I wanted to share with you how with even just 1 box of 5 markers you get amazing results. So if you are on the go, and don't want to tote around a bunch of supplies, this makes it so easy! By blending markers together, you get a lot more colors and shades. I used Colorista Markers Set 1 and the Inspiring Sentiments Marker Pad.
I was able to create an absolutely beautiful shade of red by blending the Orchid and Rose Red markers. First I colored the Orchid, then added on Rose Red, and then back over with Orchid. WOW!
Coloring the tiny leaves was easy, thanks to the ultra fine tip end of the marker! You are going to LOVE these markers!
I got perfect shades of green by blending the Daffodil and Leaf Green markers. First I colored the entire leaf with Daffodil and then Leaf Green. Next, I colored over again with Daffodil. Then, to make one side of the leaf darker, I colored over just that area with Leaf Green. To make it even darker, I colored the area again with Leaf Green. It really makes the leaf pop!
I am in total love with the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens. I couldn't help but color over some areas for pop of bling-bling. Ahhhh...that's better ;)
