Well I didn't read the directions at first and I'm glad. Our family motto is "When all else fails, read the directions." I tried them on regular colored pencils, nothing water-based or special about them and ... they work great. The blender did turn silver to grey but otherwise it was a rousing success. What a happy accident.
I made a card for for my aunt who had a masectomy today using the blenders and I liked the results. Prayers for Alice greatly appreciated, she still has a long road ahead of her.
So I used them again on the second card of the evening...
Carla's Quote Challenge
My girlfriend Carla is a quote collector and occassionally she will email me a quote and challenge me to make a card using it. This week's was so easy: "If you can't say anything good about someone, sit right here by me."
— Alice Roosevelt Longworth (1884 - 1980)
Time with You & Please be Seated did the trick. I used Perfect Medium to make a watermark of the folding chair and the blender pens and colored pencils were used to color the image.
