It’s no secret. I’m a huge fan of the new alcohol-based markers by Stampin’ Up!. The Stampin’ Blends have dual tips allowing you to choose either the brush or fine-tip. I prefer the brush tip for coloring in larger areas or creating backgrounds on glossy white cardstock. The fine-tip is perfect for coloring in small areas of detailed outline images.
I realized I was constantly fumbling with them to read the barrel to identify which end was which. That’s when I decided to use my washi tape to identify one end from the other.
Today’s quick tip video will show you where to mount the washi tape. Before you begin, be careful not to cover up the writing on the barrel of the marker. You’ll still want to read the name of the color.
