Go for Greece Blog Hop

Hello Friends!! Hope you are enjoying the week, today I am participating in an international blog hop where fellow demonstrators will be hoping to show you different projects and get you inspired. What I like of this group is that you get to see the projects from around the world, and you get to meet other demonstrators with whom you might not be familiar as they are in other regions..

As I mentioned on my previous post this week I am featuring cards using the Remarkable You Stamp set, which is retiring at the end of May!!

You can see below the image of this stamp set! you can see all the images are just perfect for multiple coloring techniques, where my favorite is using the Stampin' Blends!! Stampin' Up! alcohol markers which are perfect as they color coordinate with the Stampin' Up! colors, which is a great feature as you can design your cards even easier when everything color coordinate, don't you agree?? 

Remarkable You Stamp Set

Talking about the Stampin' Blends, with the new catalog, Stampin' Up! is releasing 11 new colors for these markers!! how exciting is that!!! I cannot wait to get all of them, as I mentioned earlier this is  by far my favorite coloring technique!!  I love how well these blend together and the fact that you can do shadowing with these markers without seeing the strokes of your coloring is another great feature when using this markers. 

Fort his card, I used the leaves image and colored with the old olive Stampin' Blends combo, which has a light and a dark shade of this color, keep in mind that you need to use the memento ink, for you to get the best results when blending with the Stampin' Blends, this will prevent picking up the black ink from the image, just make sure that your image is completely dry before you start coloring, but honestly this ink does dry fast..
