My Matryoshka Stamp Set How to Use Blender Pens for Basic Watercoloring

Catherine Projects, Videos


Matryoshka dolls…I am always drawn to these gorgeous dolls whenever I see them, however, I do not own any myself!  So, when Stampin' Up came out with the My Matryoshka stamp set, I knew I would own it!



This is a great little set for some fun cards and just the right mix of stamping and watercoloring for a fast card, and for $11.95 for the clear mount version, you can't beat the price! 

If you purchase the My Matryoshka Stamp Set for Clear Mount, I recommend Blocks B (117147 $5.95), C 118486 $6.95) and G (118489 $4.50).



Watercoloring with Stampin' Up's Blender Pens– Tips:

  • with your blender pen, don't color over the same spot too much, or your cardstock will start to pill up.
  • dip your blender pen tip gently into the color pallette.  If you get too much ink on your tip, it will take a long time of scribbling on scratch paper to get that tip clean!
  • scribble off gently!  I made the mistake of being pretty rough on my blender pens at first and had to get a second set quickly!
