Tips for using Stampin' Up blendabilities

What's your favourite crafting supply at the moment? I've become addicted to the new blendabilities from Stampin' Up and am having so much fun finding out all about them! Today's card was something of an experiment which I think turned out pretty well - come and see:

Just look at that foxy little fella! Isn't he a cutie? I had been wondering what would happen if I stamped him directly onto Pistachio Pudding card stock and coloured him with my Pumpkin Pie blendabilities. It worked! The colour turned out to be as intense as I could have wished!

Here's a close up. Have you noticed that there's no black outline on my fox? That's because I stamped him in Cajun Craze classic ink which works very well. If you DO want a black outline, Momento ink is recommended.

I 'grounded' my fox with Stampin' Up's chalk marker drawn in lines, and surrounded him with white embossed bushes from the Hopeful Thoughts stamp set.

The sentiment is from Something to Say which was stamped onto a banner and stapled to the panel. I added a tiny bow - and if you're wondering where I found the bakers twine to match that fox, blendabilities are brilliant for colouring embellishments too!

I see there's an Animal challenge over at Less is More this week so I shall be linking up over there.
