My 2nd card using my new SU Blendabilities. Yes, there is a learning curve. The big secret to shading for me....Start with the dark color saturate your W White CS and quickly add medium and light colors. Do not let the inks dry. That makes for much better blending of the lines. Harder to cover lines when you go from light to med. to dark.
I can't wait to get more colors, but I am happy with my 1st selection. I do need the color lifter, which I ordered yesterday. That should help with the blending. I LOVE the vibrant rich colors. Just really need more practice....Darn, means more stamping:-) I was able to preorder the markers because I am a SU Demo. Will be available after June 2nd. There are 12 color selections in the new 2014-15 Annual SU Catalog. More colors will be coming out later.

I did not know SU up had jumped on the Alcohol markers bandwagon. Good for them! Your card is just beautiful and I agree, for so early in your learning curve, you are doing an amazing job! These vases so beautifully colored full of flowers ROCKS! Great CAS card...
