Vivid Vases Colored With Blendabilities

Vivid is the word that comes to mind when I see these vases . . . and for 2 reasons:
The colors are vivid   - - and - -   the stamp set is called Vivid Vases

Card made with Stampin'UP!'s Vivid Vases Stamp and colored with the Blendabilities alcohol markers
This card was shared by Joyce Hall from Hudson, WI

Joyce colored the vases using Stampin'UP!'s new Blendabilities MarkersBlendabilities are alcohol markers and they were especially designed for shading and blending colors. Notice the subtle color highlights on the vases.

Yesterday's post gives more detail on the differences between water based markers and alcohol markers. But the bottom line is that alcohol markers are perfect for coloring images like these vases and giving the image a sense of dimension. These vases almost look like they're curving.

A stamp like Vivid Vases is a good one to use when you want to play with the new alcohol markers.  
**The flowers offer the chance to play with different colors 
**and the vases give you a chance to play with an image 
    of something curved

Vivid Vases is such a lovely image. 

Here's another photo of the Vivid Vases flowers. These were colored with the water-based markers and you can see the difference you get in coverage.

A little Dazzling Details glitter glue 
sure helps jazz up a project, yes?!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you've been inspired to try a little coloring.
