You have probably already heard by now, but just in case you haven't, Stampin' Up! is no longer carrying the Blendabilities alcohol based markers in their product line. While I totally understand why they made this decision, I have to admit that I feel like I have been kicked in the gut. So in honor of my short-lived relationship with these markers, I wanted to share one last card that I created recently. Ironically, the sentiment reads "hello there" but it would be more appropriate to say farewell.
To create this card, I used the masking technique and stamped several lemons with the "A Happy Thing Stamp Set". Even though the markers are gone, you can still get this beautiful stamp set as one of your free products with a $50 purchase during the remainder of Sale-a-bration. I colored the images with the Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Blendabilities Collections and the blue background was created with the lightest Soft Sky Blendabilities marker. I distressed the edges of the card with Early Espresso ink and then added a strip of Old Olive Polka Dot DSP from the Brights DSP Collection. Finally I added some Black & White Bakers Twine and then mounted everything on a Whisper White card base.
