As you might have heard, Technique Junkie Newsletter has just released a brand new CD: Stampin' Companion: 70 Tutorials exclusively using Stampin' Up! products.*
One of the easy tutorials on the CD is how to blend Stampin' Write Markers to get a watercolored, or a more subtle, look. On the example below, I wanted to create shadows and contrast to a "white" image; using the markers by themselves would have resulted in hard lines -- not the soft blended look that I wanted to achieve. I used the Blended Marker Technique (FREE tutorial below the image) to create the look I wanted.
This is one of the 70 tutorials from the Stampin' Companion CD. The Techniques on the CD range from easy, like this one, to more complex. Every tutorial uses ONLY Stampin' Up! products, from the trimmers to the stamps and everything in-between. It is only $17.95 (US and Canada) ($19.95 for overseas addresses) and all of the tutorials are in this format: http://www.techniquejunkies.com/blended-markers.pdf

To order this awesome CD, go to the Stampin' Companion Page, order from my blog directly, or order from the Technique Junkie Newsletter home page. A list of the 70 tutorials is also on the Stampin' Companion page.
If you are a demo, this CD is wonderful for workshop ideas. If you are just a fan, like me, you will love knowing what to do with all of your wonderful Stampin' Up! products!
