February Technique Hop - "Color Your World"

Welcome to the CTMH Technique Blog Hop! 
This month there are 14 CTMH consultants using CTMH products in their artwork to create a variety crafts using the theme "Color Your World".   This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous "Color Your World" artwork.  If you are coming from Cat Nowak's Blog you are on the right track!  If you get lost, you can find the list on the bottom of Melissa's blog.  
Here we go!
I love our inks that we can squeeze our ink pad and then use the ink from the lid as water color.  I planned to watercolor a background, but somehow my watercolors didn't get packed and I'm at a crop so learning to be creative and improvise. So I sponged the background with Sangria and Sapphire.  I used the "Shared Happiness" stamp and thin cut"  Found on the Stamptacular Sale!!
Swished some Sapphire ink with a brush, used our embossing pen to write the sentiment and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I colored the bouquet with the TriBlend markers.

I love the TriBlend Markers!
Three colors in one marker; light, mid, and dark. Tutorials I've seen suggest starting light, going into the shadows with the dark add the mid and then go back and blend all over with light.
My first attempt using the TriBlend™ Markers was to color the bouquet for the February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.  It's perfect for lots of coloring. These markers are much easier to use than I expected.  
 I cannot wait to see what others have done.  
Now hop on over to Tamara's blog to see what kind of fabulous "Color Your World" art she's created.  Be sure to drop a comment, we enjoy the encouragement. I hope you enjoyed this hop.  If you see items you would like to purchase, contact your CTMH consultant or you can Shop HERE
