Alcohol markers are all the rage in papercrafting- for coloring, creating layers/backgrounds, and for custom-tinting embellishments. Now you can get ones that coordinate with all of your favorite Stampin’ UP products with Blendabilities Markers!
These markers are two sided- that is, you get both a brush tip and a writing tip in the same barrel.
And you can get a nice variety of lines, too. The barrels are squared so that they don’t roll off your table. There is a photo illustration showing you which nib is which. The caps fit VERY tightly!
It’s always easier to show you, so I put together this video for you!
They come in a set of three- a light, medium and dark hue and they retail for $11.95 per set.
The sets are as follows:
- Calypso Coral
- Costal Cabana
- Cherry Cobbler
- Crumb Cake
- Daffodil Delight
- Melon Mambo
- Night of Navy
- Old Olive
- Pumpkin Pie
- Rich Razzleberry
- Smoky Slate
- Wisteria Wonder
There is also a Color Lifter (blending pen?) and I’m hoping to get one of those soon to try out and report back on.
I drew out a Tardis with the machine and then colored it in with the Blendabilities Markers:
I’m thinking about doing a full tutorial of that process- leave me a comment if it’s something you’d like to see!
So… considering that these are some of the most cost-effective alcohol markers on the market, I think they are pretty great. (Seriously, $4 a marker is a good deal for a dual nib AND a sizable barrel full of ink!)
I’d love to hear your thoughts- and if you have questions, leave them below!
