Things to know about Blendabilities Alcohol Markers:
1.  Rectangular barrel keeps them where you put them.  No rolling away!
2.  Store flat to maintain even ink distributions and prolong the life of your Marker.
3.  Each Blendability comes with both a Fine tip and a Brush tip.
4.  Marker tips are made of nylon, which is superior to polyester which can fray.
5.  Color coded caps with different sized cylinders inside to keep your Markers away from the air and to prevent drying out.  Place your marker on a flat surface to slide the cap on.  DO NOT force the tip in as you can damage it.
6.  Stampin’ Up! Blendabilities Markers coordinate wonderfully with our card stock, and can be used with transparent Window Sheets.
7.  Colorfast which means they won’t fade!

Coloring Options:
~Protect your work surface by placing a sheet of paper undeneath the paper you will be coloring on as Blendabilities do bleed through the card stock!
~Stamp your image with the Memento ink pad and let it dry for 30 seconds or so to let it dry.
1.  Color just  how you normally do.
2.  Color from light to dark OR dark to light using small circular motions.
3.  Use the fine tip, the brush tip, or both tips.
4.  Color from the inside out, or around the edges and fill in the rest.
5.  Use a lighter hand for a watercolor effect.  Or keep layering on the color for a more vibrant color.
6.  Color a small area at a time, then put the cap back on so it won’t dry out.
7.  Experiment to find YOUR favorite Blendabilitis techniques!
8.  You can color on Rhinestones, Pearls, Buttons, and Heat Embossed images.  You Marker tips will wear out faster when coloring on these uneven surfaces.  You can also color on colored card stock, Window Sheets, Cello bags, and other papers.

Happy Blending!
