A different stamping technique...Using Blendabilities!

Hi guys!
How's your week going so far? I hope you've had plenty of time to craft! I have...I have been making some things, other than cards, and today I have something a little different to show you...

I have altered a mirror that I bought at the weekend...I wanted to try something different! The thing was, I wanted to stamp on the frame of my mirror, but I only have black Stazon and the Stampin' Up! coloured inks are water based, so wouldn't dry on this surface. So I got on Ebay to see about getting some different coloured Stazon, but I didn't like the colours...they just weren't the same as our gorgeous colours! 

Then I remembered a technique I used to use with my Promarkers, way back in my early days of crafting. So I tried it with my Blendabilities! Basically, I coloured the swirl stamp from Everything Eleanor with my medium Rich Razzelberry Blendabilities pen. Now, you have to work quite fast, and build up the colour a bit so the ink doesn't dry straight away, but it works! I stamped straight onto my frame and the ink is colourfast! How to clean the stamp? Just use Stazon Cleaner straight away!

I then added some butterflies from my favourite Papillon Potpourri, stamped in Rich Razzelberry onto Vellum Cardstock, and a few Basic Pearls Jewel Accents to finish. I love how this cam out, and now I know that I can stamp with my beloved Blendies, I will be doing it more often!!

I am heading to the gym now, if I can move when I get legs are still stiff as a board from Monday's workout!

Have a lovely Wednesday!
