wendy vecchi MAKE ART Blendable Dye inks...

are here!

if you LOVE my archival ink colors...
you'll LOVE these

MAKE ART

Blendable Dye inks

we have 12 colors in this release...
they are 12 colors from my current archival palette, which gives us so
many creative options, 
since they coordinate perfectly...

keep in mind that the archival inks 
are a translucent oil based permanent ink
and the new

wendy vecchi 
MAKE ART
Blendable Dye inks
are a translucent 
water based blendable dye ink...
this makes them PERFECT to pair with 
the 24 archival inks we have...

we can use them together since 
oil & water never mix!

we can stamp or stencil with archival and blend these new Blendables right over the archival ink, with no bleeding, smearing or blending...

or...

we can use them to blend a beautiful background, then stamp or stencil right over the background using our archival inks...
perfect!

now about the pads themselves...

they are the GOLDILOCKS of ink pads...
not too small...
not too large...
just PERFECT!

here's a photo showing the red geranium archival with the new
red geranium MAKE ART Blendable, 
so you can see the size better...


did you see?
the cases are SEXY BLACK!

and get ready for this...
the price per pad is just ...

$3.99...
I'm pleased that they are very affordable...
that means you can add all 12 to
 your collection for $50.00 total!

yes...we have reinkers for the pads...
they are $3.49 each...

these start shipping to stores 
on MONDAY April 23...
I HATE waiting, so this is GREAT!

now...
the only problem?
we NEED the other 12 colors!!!
hello...buy them so we get the others!
I keep reaching for the missing colors...

look at the pads...
the base of the ink pads is nice and thick, making them very easy to grip...
their smaller size makes them really nice to hold & use...



look how cute they are...
 below are the 12 colors in this release...

does that flower look familiar?

SPECIAL THANKS 
to Taylor from Ranger
 for making the labels sooo stinking' cute!














here's the press release, 
if you'd like to see the colors all together...





below are some examples of 
the MAKE ART Blendable colors...
this is red geranium, poppy & sunflower...


next we have...
bluebird, fern green and prickly pear...


for this this next sample I used the blending tool to add inks thru the Stampers Anonymous circle grate stencil,
 using cornflower blue, violet, then acorn...
these are all the MAKE ART Blendables...

keep in mind that they are translucent inks, 
so the more you add, the more color you get...
I kept this sample pretty light, 
compared to the very first sample...

more ink means a darker color...
less ink & it's a lighter color...




I stenciled red geranium, orange blossom, sunflower, prickly pear and garden patina for this one...
quick & easy background, using the intersecting circles stencil!



here's the very first test card I made using them...
way back in JANUARY!

if you think it's been easy to keep quiet about them...
trust me...

many days I thought I would explode!





if you look at that small 5 petal flower on the right...
that blending is made possible by the detail blending tools...

these inks are the reason I wanted NEEDED 
the detail blending tools...

the wendy vecchi 
MAKE ART
Blendables 
are perfect to use with the detail blending tools...
the flower below shows that & it couldn't be easier...
that flower is a flat mat mini,
 but looks really dimensional because of the shading...

they make a huge difference in your art!



in the photo below,
 you can see I used my archival inks and the new wendy vecchi MAKE ART Blendable inks on this card...
here are the colors I used...





here's another example of the awesome blending...
these colors look really pretty on my Ranger Perfect Grey cards...

the heart was embossed with Ranger's new silver tinsel embossing powder...

even those tiny flowers can be shaded, 
using the detail blending tool...
they are a MUST HAVE!








 I'm sure you're wondering if these new inks are the same formulation as Tim's distress inks ...

they are NOT...

this formula was created at Ranger for me!

and if you're wondering if I'm switching to these & 
ignoring my archival inks...

ABSOLUTELY NOT!

the Blendables were formulated to work together with the archival inks perfectly!

now we have OPTIONS...

color coordinated...
OPTIONS!

YIPPEE!!!


for some quickie videos to see these 
wendy vecchi MAKE ART Blendables in action!

I seem to find it easier to post there more often...

I'll be sharing more...
lots more...

I'm in Connecticut now...
teaching store owners all about these cuties...

but I'll be checking in to hear your thoughts...

I'm so HAPPY that I can finally share these inks!
phew...relief!

new inks...
just what we need to 

MAKE ART!
