As I got to poking around trying to decide what to do with this combo, I realized that for two of the colors in this challenge, I have Blendas - guess that means it's time for me to actually try my hand at coloring an image with them now! Since I just got Bloom With Hope, one of our awesome new Hostess sets, in a shipment last week, I thought maybe one of these flowers would be a good place to start. I also hoped that the pen-and-ink style of the images might help obscure any Blenda-Blunders I might make, too! Turns out, I was worried over nothing - SO easy to use! And no penalties for going back and dabbling more and more! The paper is still totally smooth - no pilling or bubbling like happens sometimes with aqua-painters... Just make sure to give your ink layer 30 seconds or so between layers once in a while - the ink continues to blend and smooth as the alcohol continues to evaporate. It's hard to photograph how much more depth my colored image has now. I'll definitely be doing more with these yummy pens! (And check out those rhinestones I colored, too! Woo hoo!)
