We did this card at my demonstrator stamp night last week. We made 10 different Christmas projects. It was before had time to have the Blends delivered to us, so the card we made that night was done with the watercolor pencils. In the pictures and in the video you can see the comparison between the two. The pencils and the Blends both have Coral and Bermuda – so the overall clothes on the gals look pretty similar. However the Blends win hands when it comes to the flesh tones!
I colored my ladies using my mom and my niece as my “models” – and one of our cats. It helps when coloring in people to have a goal in mind before you start. The Blends have a limited colors at this point so you will need to be creative when layering your colors to come up with enough variety – but as you use your blends remember to let layers dry and layer more color for depth and darker looks.
